Medion laptop MIM2320 keyboard and hotkey issues

  GabeCP 17:38 18 Nov 2010

My internal keyboard on me medion notebook semi works some buttons do and some don't due to a spillage. Unfortunately the wifi button has turned off and although my fn key works the f1 won't ! So I'm without wifi :( I have got a keyboard remapping programme and a usb keyboard . On the remapping programme I can easily rewrite fn functions to different keys but I can't find the wifi button code or name ... So if you know how I can turn the wifi on using this programme or any other means it'd be much appreciated !!

Cheers :) ps the remapping programme is called KeyRemapper

Have you tried the on screen keyboard in accessories?

maybe doesn't have an Fn

but if you press Fn on normal keyboard and F1 on the on screen one at the same time????

Why not just stick a WiFi USB stick in one of the four USB sockets it as on the back. That's what I did on a Medion I have

I use a tool on Hirens boot CD called KeyTweak 2.3.0: a program to Remap Keyboard Layout, you can even customize a broken key to an unused key (Windows Freeware).

Why cannot you get a new Keyboard? Medion Laptops is made by Mitac This is how to remove the keyboard click here the bit at the top with buttons in it slides to the left then up you can then get to the keyboard screws. Monitor Hinge caps just prize up so you can get to screws that hold it in place

PS you could also use a external USB keyboard, some have programmable buttons. Plenty in Maplins to look at

Okay thanks :) I think I'll go ahead with a new keyboard unless anyone else can think how I can fix it without buying something ?
