I guess this must have something to do with a "new" convention my new HP Pavilion has. When I press F5 the computer interprets it as what my old Tx2000 would do with Fn + F5, and when I do a Fn + F5, it interprets it as an old F5.

I don't really like this new approach to my F keys. How to change it back?

Thanks

You can usually change that in the BIOS. See here.
