Just what I thaught... all is fine. Expect the fact that wireless has been turned off by a hardware switch. Is WIFI really turn ON??

try FN+right arrow
use FN just like shift-key so keep it pressed when pressing the second key. Does screen gets brighter?? when doing FN+right arrow
do FN+left arrow to revert the change

This proves FN key is working.
Is F3 working as well? Press F3 in internet explorer for example, it should give you the "find" bar (just as CTRL+F does)

fn+f7 disables touchpad (as far as I remember). You can see small icon on F7 key that describes what it does. Press fn+f7 again and touchpad is orking again.

Enables Fn functionality. Sure you did install it?

I think just run setup.exe and follow instructions
