    my F9 key does not work
    when i press it to activate all windows the following image appears in the middle of my screen.

    How can i get F9 to work as it should?
    If i open dashboard and expose and make the hot key the fn button it works fine, but f9 always brings up that weird graphic.

    Thanks for any help.

    That weird graphic is telling you that you cannot change the backlight on the keyboard (probably because you are in a brightly lit room and the backlight isn't even on).
    To make the F9 use Exposť like you want it to, you have to check the box under Keyboard prefs that says "Use F1-F12 keys to control software features"
