Everytime i want to use a key with something blue on it i have to press the FN button, any ideas to what it could be?

Not sure what you are asking but the Fn key is the function key and is blue so any key that has blue writing on it needs the Fn key pressed at the same time to work.

Basically the opposite has happened, in order to use the normal grey keys i'm having to press the fn button

Try pressing the F11 number lock key and fn at the same time and see if it resolves it.

Forget that, seems that was for another problem. I am just googling lol.

thanks i had a look but have no idea what i'm looking for!

Could it be that StickyKeys is activated?

I don't have a laptop so I don't know if Fn is one of the keys which you can lock down with StickyKeys but it might be worth a look incase you accidentally activated it.

In XP (don't know about Windows 7 or Vista)
Control Panel ---> Accessibility Options ---> Uncheck "Use StickyKeys"

Thanks that worked!!

Didnt WAJ1234 say that earlier?

He did, but then said in his next post to forget it. I was highlighting the fact that it was most likely the correct solution.

Oh yes WAJ1234 did but thought it was wrong. Thanks everyone

Only from what I read quickly from google. I remember it happinging years ago but my memory is not so clear.

Glad it is sorted.
