There are keyboards out there that have a fn function. I have one myself. The Logitech K250.

You most likely need a new keyboard. You can find them all the time on ebay, or look on Google shopping.

yah, buying a separate keyboard with fn function is possible but wanna see if there's any way to fix the netbook's one. all i need is the piece that connects it.

do you know if the keyboard connector piece would come with a keyboard i buy separately?
