I have a brand new Samsung 3 series laptop, seems my FN key is stuck, all "fn" keys work as if I am holding it, however I can not get it reversed. Any idea on what to do? I tried to hold down fn and f11 ad it did not work.

Try going into the BIOS and disabling the FN always on function. It will be called something like that.

You see the BIOS option when booting your computer. It's the first thing you see, probably a huge SAMSUNG logo on the screen. Rapidly press F2 a few times when viewing this screen and the BIOS menu should open up in a few seconds.

You have FUNCTION LOCK key which is situated to right of the F12 key - top row.

I do say a big thanks. Even if the answer might have been obvious (for those who knows of FN lock key) this is one of the best straight answers I found on the internet for a while - and a very helpful one when you get annoyed why your brand new Samsung laptop has problems with a key ....

I am using an old Samsung N150 Netbook and on this the F11 key has the Fn key lock. This thread proved really useful.
Thanks

WOW.

Feeling "stupid" ain't the half of it for me. almost 2 years I've had to deal with this perplexing issue ... only a reboot allowed me to reset it.

OMG.

You have no idea how dumb I feel. Thank you so much (I mean that graciously, btw, cause it solved my problem. I feel sooo dumb... but liberated).
