    Function keys are inverted on HP Envy 17 j177nr

    I am having an issue with my HP Envy 17 j177nr laptop where when I try to use F1 - F12, it only toggles the action rather than the F key itself. For example, F3 adjusts the brightness rather than doing the intended thing that F3 is supposed to trigger.

    In order for me to use F3, I have to do Fn+F3. This is a major problem because when I am playing games that save your game with F3. Sometimes I need to be super quick in order to save before I die or something so if I mess up, I can go back. The added seconds taken to hit both have really hurt me in some cases. It is REALLY a problem in rhythm based games where I need to hit an F key on queue.

    I Googled the issue but only Dell results came up. This is an HP! When I added HP to the search, all that came up is that you cannot invert them, you have to hold Fn to adjust brightness or something. But nothing could be further from the truth!! Mine ARE inverted and I need to change them back because it is annoying as hell.

    Does anybody know what the problem could be?

    Does your keyboard have another** key with a Fn symbol on it that is part of the mechanism for setting / turning off Fn behaviour?

    ** In addition to the Fn key next to the WinKey.
