Fn functionality doesn't work at all. That's why you can't enable WIFI

WIFI is disabled now. I don't know what did that.
touchpad has driver. And win7 device manager shows no errors. Don't know why it deosn't work.

Did you install launchmanager? Maybe uninstall it and install it again. It's for FN key functionality

Did it work before? Maybe uninstall./install driver fixes it.

Fixed!
Some of the drivers must have installed incorrectly the first time for some reason.

Everything seems to be working normally now.
Thank you SO much.

How did you solve FN+anykey wasn't working?
Best thing to do was:
  • install WIRED lan driver (you did that). And it works
  • install windows updates. reboot. check for updates again and again till everything has been installed
  • install the driver stuff from manufacturer site I told you. Reboot if win7 asks you to reboot, Only missing driver listed in device manager where needed. win7 default drivers are fine most of the time.
  • install extra software like launch manager
I think win7 was confused when you installed everything at the same time(?)

But all problems are fixed now. Mark thread as "solved" please

Yeah I agree.
I think I was just trying to install too much at once because once I reinstalled drivers they started to work.
That's how i got FN to work.

Thanks again!
