Default Help: FN-button and the F-row!!!!

I'm not quite sure if this is the right forum but I had to ask.

Some computers (mostly laptops I think) have a "FN" button which wil change what some of the keys do while you hold down the FN button.

That's all nice and well, though some laptops has the entire F-button-row (F1, F2, F3 ... F10) set to something random like screen brightness and media controls as default so you'll need to hold down the FN-button to use the F-buttons. I'm sorry but what the heck is going on, why would you ever need to have instant acces to screen brightness instead of the F-keys?!

Now my question is if it in any way is possible to change this, leaving the F-function as default and the random screen brightness /media control/etc. as the FN-function in Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit?

I consider this one of if not the dumbest keyboard design. It removes the use ofthe F-keys and even makes gaming difficult. I hope you can help!
