Hi. I am the owner of a brand spanking new Gateway CX200 convertable notebook. As of a couple of minutes ago, my FN key was stuck. Using the on screen keyboard, I googled the phrase: 'fn key stuck' and this thread was the first result and the only one which was relevant. My solution was not found here, but what somebody said about calling Dell reminded me that I had my user guide on hand so I was able to look up the solution in the trouble shooting section.
Since I probably will not be the only person to have this problem with this model, I am going to take a minute to explain how to fix it. It is real easy to do.
Hold down the FN key and hit the SCROLL key (found next to the F12 button).
If that doesn't fix it, you may really have a problem.
Hope this helps somebody.
