Recently changed the hard drive, and I have all the drivers installed from Dell, including the 'update manager', but the keyboard shows as a standard ps/2, which means no FN keys or anything like that. I've tried finding a driver on Google, and also tried updating it manually to something similar, but can't find a Dell keyboard driver in either place. Anyone have some ideas on where to look? 

The Dell support forum had no options either.

 

And I'm sure the physical keyboard isn't the issue, as the keys all work, and the FN keys work in the bios (backlight on/off, sleep, etc)

I appreciate the input, but I ran that sandboxed, and it's reeks of spyware/adware

You sometimes have to run emergency checkups for your system with standalone utilities like Dr.Web Cure It!. A top-notch antivirus program have powerful firewall an additional anti-malware or anti-spyware suites.

Figured that was a spammer. Regardless I ran the Dell Diagnostics from the support site, and it resolved the issue. Just wanted to post in case someone else runs across this issue in the future. And I do run a good firewall, that's how I sandboxed the program :-P
