On the Samsung Support Downloads webpage for your exact model there will be software and possibly hotfixes for FN keys.

In addition, Samsung owners who Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 have reported that Software which enables Fkey functions and illumination may be labeled Easy Display Manager.
