    you should have a key with " Fn" on the keytop. The printing should be red or blue
    you then will have normal keys, Ummm , maybe the "F1-9" keys that will have the same color printing, you should have brightness and contrast. You have to hold down the Fn key then tap a key with the same color. You will have to look it could be a circle half filled in the sun , what ever on the key cap. There maybe other functions like key locks , sound... etc. the key locks effect the way the KB works.
