Question Disable the Fn key on this keyboard

Hello Everyone:

I have a dell inspiron 2650 laptop that has a bad key( Fn) on it that is giving me problems. I had to hook up another keyboard to type this. The darn key is messing up what I type, turns everything into numbers not letters, and im not even touching it. Does anyone know of a utility that I could use to disable that darn key?

Please any help would be great

bye

I think it's impossible.

Try Fn+NumLock

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Thank you for the information. I got some answers also from the dell website, one of the ideas is to replace the keyboard, to the answer above. Which I have decided to replace the keyboard and use the idea above if I have any problems.The keyboard for the laptop is so cheap, got it and shipping and handling for only $20.75.

Thank you people for the information on this,and taken your time to answer my questions
