I would assume that the Fn keys relate to accessability options and they come from emachines. what driver upgrade have you done so far?

Go to your vendors website and download the additional hotkey drivers. They may not have one listed for Windows 7, but the vista one should work fine.

Go to Control Panel and then Power options. At the bottom of the page is a slider for Screen Brightness - adjust to suit you.

It may be your intel video driver then. Go to this site and intel will check your video driver version. This may fix it.
