    Hi

    I have made an installaation Win 7 Prof. 32 bit.

    When I had it as an upgrade everything worked fine. But after making a "clean" installation are missing some (or rather the most) of my "FN" Keys.
    Do any other have experienced same problems on Medion MD96850.
    I read the string abouth Sony Vaio, and it is exactly thesame for me, but I can not download the same files/drivers fra Medions help and support site, so I can not imdately use that solution.
    Hope some can help me.

    You need a Medion utility to do this for you - I'd email a request to their product support here:

    MEDION UK

    Thank you, but I have resently downloaded and installed all those drivers without any help.
    Suppose You mentioned the Chipset driver.

    It isn't a driver issue - customisation of the function keys for a specific manufacturer's device will be achieved by utility software produced by the manufacturer. If not available as a download online I would email them and ask if it can be made available.

    The function keys are enabled using a series of programs that go under the heading Launch Manager. You'll find this on the Medion site in the same place as the chipset drivers. To make sure you get the right set, you need to enter the MSN number on the bottom of your machine. The confusing point is that Medion don't have a specifically Windows 7 version of this utility and the description makes it sound like a Vista driver. Once you've downloaded and unzipped it all, run the Set-up program and your function keys will reappear. If it doesn't work first time, try running it again. There's some problem with the necessary keys coming unstuck from the Windows registry. I've put a link to the set-up program on the desktop so I can run it every time the function keys give up.
