Keyboard Blues

Hi, I have a slight problem with a new keyboard that I bought recently. The make and model is Microsoft Multimedia.
Everything works fine apart from keys such as F1 TO F12 and some combination keys like Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V and so on.
I have not tried all the combinations, but I’m assuming that if the simple ones don’t work, then I’m sure the more complicated ones don’t either.
The funny thing is that there are four short cut keys on the top right hand titled media, mail, web/home, messenger and they all work fine.
So, the question is, how do I get everything else working?
Please help.

Is there an F Lock key perhaps above the the Num Lock, toggle this to use between F keys and whatever else they are used for.

What happens then? - you didn't really say

Thanks for your replies.
I have tried the first solution of unistalling the keyboard and installing it again, but it does not work as the same driver is loaded up again, as for the F key, well hey presto, how could it be so simle?
I have got some response from some of the F keys. Thank you for your suggestion.
