Also, this was a big issue a while ago and Lenovo said that they would introduce a BIOS option to reverse the buttons so they work the other way around.

So go into your BIOS settings and look for an options saying Swap Fn Crtl Keys. Just enable that option as it is disabled by default.

Check the BIOS option and if it is not there you might need to update your BIOS from lenovo website.

If not as last resort you could remap keys using win7.

Check BIOS and let me know ^^

You didn't find the BIOS setting ? It would be best to use that. Do you need help changing it ?
