My fn-key is broken, but I need it to click the "monitor"-key on my f5-key.

I need this because my PC isn't detecting my new monitor.

Is there anyway to simulate a fn+f5 click?

Or is there anyway else, to click this key?

You can probably just use a software keyboard (on-screen) or find a program that lets you re-map keys.. –  Doc Aug 12 '11 at 22:08
    
Do you have a download link for a software keyboard? I already tried a remapping program which included over 30 keys, but none of them were the fn-key, only "Wake (fn)" was included, which didn't work. –  Tyilo Aug 12 '11 at 22:10
    
Maybe the built-in Windows one will do it Start > All Programs > Accessories -- in some place like that. –  Doc Aug 12 '11 at 22:12
    
Doesn't include the fn-key –  Tyilo Aug 12 '11 at 22:33
