CTRL and FN keys suddenly swapped [Elitebook 8460p]

Hello, 

 

the CTRL and FN keys of my notebook suddenly swapped. 

Now the FN key performs as CTRL key and vice versa. 

 

First I thought the CTRL is not working at all. 

 

This is really annoying. 

Any way to change back to the default behaviour or is this a warranty case?

 

Thank you & best regards,

Philipp

Folks with the 4530 series ProBooks found by removing the battery and AC power, then re-applying power seems to solve this quirk....
