Do you have any kind of vocational school or computer classes at a school near you that you could call and ask for a student to come and help you?

On some Lenovo PC's you can press FN+Escape to switch between Lenovo hot keys and normal F key function. You only have to do it once because it'll keep the setting even you reboot.

If I didn't have a sighted person to turn off the Lenovo function keys in the bios, the only way to turn them off, I would take the laptop to Best buy and have them do it.
