    I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard on my Macbook Pro (early 2008) and now my function keys are mixed up. My volume keys are now F3 and F4 for example.

    I have already unchecked, “Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys” as standard function keys” in System Preferences and it didn’t fix the problem. Also, under the keyboard shortcuts tab I have clicked the “Restore Defaults” button. This also didn’t fix my problem.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue?

    I am reinstalling the operating system to see if anything changes.

    I will post an update when I have finished reinstalling Leopard.

    OK!

    I figured out why my fuction keys are mixed up. About 2 months ago I replaced the top cover on my Macbook Pro. I bought the replacement cover on ebay. The replacement top cover was intended for an older Macbook Pro generation when the function keys were different. So now I have an old top cover and a newer style keyboard. The keyboard is now plugged into the board that was made for the older style keyboard.

    I hope this makes sense. I may just purchase the older syle keyboard later so that my function keys perform like they are intended.
