There might be a setting in the bios that lets fn come on by default but then you would loose the regular F1 to F12 keys.

Is there some kind of software which enables you to change the fn key and assign it to another?

open it up and clean out the little zigzags that the buttons presses on to
clean it with rubbing alcohol or windex by using a Q-tip
(happen to me before when i punshed by keyboard half the keys didnt work)
