I need to use FN key as my Dell PC is overheating and Dell Technician has ask me to carry out a Diagnostic test on fan, however there is no FN key on this desktop keyboard (I though they were mainly on Laptops) is there another key to use that will carry out the same function?

If you are trying to access the Dell Diagnostics Utility you have to press F12, when you see the Dell Splashscreen, this will bring up a menu so you can choose Boot to Utility Partition

lotvic I did that and test that were run said all OK, however PC still running hot (according to Acronis drive monitor and Ashampoo HDD control) I will contact Dell also and explain what I have carried out just to confirm its is what he asked me to do.

Thanks
