    So I did a quick scan of the Internet for your PC and see people who also complain about the function keys not working. I saw suggestions to update the BIOS to the latest version and to make sure you used AHCI mode to install Linux. Switching to AHCI mode often does not work if you installed Windows and Linux in IDE or Compatibility mode first and so switching after the fact can render all OS installations unable to boot, so be careful. AHCI mode works fine with Windows 7 and openSUSE if installed in that mode set from the start. Lenovo claims that the Laptop was intended from the start to stay in the AHCI mode. I see some claim a switch to Linux kernel 2.6.39 can help which can be done, but I failed to figure out why, for this laptop. Keep in mind that the actual ability to support Linux rests with Lenovo and not openSUSE, but we do the best we can here.

    Thank You,
