I have made a clean install on a Sony Vaio laptop (VPCF22L1E/B), which originally had Windows 7. After installing the drivers for Windows 8 that Sony has provided, I realized that the fn + f# keys did not work.

So I searched the internet for a possible solution. I've read that I need a driver called Sony Vaio Event service, which is available for Windows 7, but not Windows 8. I tried installing the Windows 7 driver in compatibility mode, but it didn't work. Is there any workaround I can try?

Sony Community has a pretty big forum in regards to this, have you searched it for possible solutions? –  Doktoro Reichard Sep 4 '13 at 18:27
    
I would look for a newer version of the driver for one of Sony's newer Vaio products. Without the driver there isn't much you can do. –  Ramhound Sep 4 '13 at 18:32
    
Well, the newer version thing did not work. I've posted a question on the Sony Community, but the problem is that the model of laptop I have is available only in some European countries. I've e-mailed the Turkish Sony Support staff, but I expect no answer. I'll call them in a few days, if things don't work out. –  sodiumnitrate Sep 4 '13 at 19:10
