    On my powerbook g4, some of the f keys stoped working. I dont know why its f1 through f10. f11 and f12 still work. I cant get them to work I have no idea what to do and its driving me crazy. If anyone knows why I would love any help. I already tried to reinstall the system and it didn't help.

    did you try going to the keyboard and mouse section of system preferences an made sure that "Use the F1 - F12 keys to control software features" is not checked. This will let you use things such as brightness, volume, keyboard brightness, etc.

    My fn key stopped working about 1 month ago but it is not much of an
    issue because I didn't use it.
