    Fn key need shift key all the time
    I have a dell laptop which is inspiron 6400 I have a problem with the fn key which I don't know how it was started
    The problem is that the fn key isn't working properly for example when I press fn+f1 in order to hibernate nothing happends unless I press the fn+f1+SHIFT key the hibernate happends so my problem is the shift key
    Nothing can be activated and displayed unless I press the shift and the fn and the key of the function that I want to activate
    Other example when I press fn+up or down arrow key in order to change the resolution the resolution changes but without displaying the box that shows how is the level of resolution, this box doesn't appear unless I press the shift key with the fn and the up or down arrow keys
    Also when I play a game for example a car game I have to press the shift key all the time in order to play
    This is my problem
    I hope you will bw able to help me

    Did you install a third-party software that could have changed the shortcut keys?
