@Reiner, make sure "F-lock" is set in BIOS, and on keyboard.

@dibl: You are most probably right. Problem is only that I can neither find F-Lock/Function Key on the Keyboard nor within the BIOS to toggle- Other Models have such an key but mine (HP-8470p) doesn't seem to.
The problem stays also when booting a live DVD Image, so it is somewhere hidden in BIOS. Resetting BIOS to Standard also didnot solve that.
The Fn Keys themselfes are acting "normal" but when using the combinations with Alt+Strg+Fnx or Alt+Fnx, the only working combination is Alt+Strg+Fn7 resp. Alt#Fn7. All others lead to freezing the screen until I "return" to Alt+F7.
Searching through some solutions for other HP-Notebooks (on some there was mentioned "Action keys, but that I also didnot have within the BIOS-Setup) did not help yet, but still searching and examinating. :-)

Not all HP models have Fn option (mostly older)

If yours does

In short – Turn off and then turn on your computer > Press Esc to get to Set-up Menu > BIOS Set-up > System Configurations > Action Keys Mode > Disable
I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

@piper: Thank you, but I already tried that with both Setups (Administrator and User).
This Opetion could not be found. BIOS is the latest for this model.

You can also switch your virtual consoles with command:
Code: [Select]
chvt 1(as root)

@Sir_Aim: Thank you for the hint, didn't know that until now. Just tried it but it has exactly the same effect as trying with the Alt+Strg+Fnx combinations. The Screen seems to freeze, Mouse-cursor dissapears and with Alt+Fn7 I am back on the real X-Window again.

Do you use the modeseting-ddx or the intel-ddx?
If you use the modesetting ddx, try to start X with the intel-ddx ore vice versa.

@towo: Good question. If I see it right I use neither one of those.
At least nothing in grub yet. And have not played with those yet.
I will search for infos on that.

@towo: obviously modesetting. How and where to change that?

Code: [Select]
mkdir -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d ; echo -e 'Section "Device"\n\tIdentifier "My GPU"\n\tDriver "intel"\nEndSection' > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Given, that xserver-xorg-video-intel is installed, a restart X should use the intel-ddx.

@towo: That worked partially, but now I get a complete black screen instead of the frozen ones.
Alt+F7 returns to X
Code: [Select]
