I'm not familiar with that machine but, I do know that on a large number of keyboards, the function keys are dual purpose and, as well as having their traditional "function" function, they double up as Help, Undo, Redo, New, Open etc (just reading the ones on the keyboard I am using typing this). There is also a key called "F Lock" which switches between the two modes. Do you have that on yours - it may be hidden.

There is a driver update under "Operating System - Enhancements" called Hotkey Support Software. Try that one. In the notes for the download it specifically states "Adds Support for Evo N20C" so that`s got to be the answer.
