Hi Val,
If you find a sighted person who can follow onscreen instructions, try this web site I found from Lenovo support.

Hi Maria!

That's what i was trying to do today, but could i get it into  my neighbour's head

? No i could not! He just kept telling me to press the fn key every time i wanted to use a jaws key.

That's too bad.  Unfortunately, I don't think the Microsoft disability line can/will help and the people at Lenovo don't even know what it means or why the necessity to turn off their function keys. Really, you will have to get a sighted person to turn off the keys within the bios.

Val, just for the hell of it, try pressing your escape key plus the function key on your pc.  It might turn off the Lenovo keys and allow the JAWS keys to work.  Once you do this, to test it, press the insert plus the f12 key to see if it tells you the time.

Were you able to call them, or did you have to use the web chat or something?
Just curious.
I hope you can get this resolved.  What a pain.

Hi All!

Have just been on to microsoft disability desk, but they couldn't really
help, suggesting that i contact Levono.

I'm going to do a search to see if they've got a support desk.
