    Reboot the computer?

    Might want to clean the keyboard too - cookie crumbs and mechanics don't mix :p

    And of course you might have removed an important driver or a program that was responsible for handling the Fn signals.

    It would help just a wee little bit if we knew what kind of laptop you have :p

    I have a similar issue with a HP/Compaq NX6125 laptop. Function keys for brightness control don't work, but other function keys do. I guess it has something to do with display driver.
