    I have found guides to the actual shortcuts but am having problems using the standard ones now, i changed little things in the expose and keyboard areas and now f1 and f2 don't brighten or dim the monitor, and f10 through f12 have no effect on sound, how can i right this? i already tried returning to default and that didn't work.

    Had the same problem. You have to uncheck the box under keyboard options...something about defaults.

    If Fn-F1 and such works to alter the brightness, look at the 'Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys' option under the Keyboard tab in the Keyboard & Mouse Preferences; by default it should be unchecked.
