Why did Compaq (HP) do this?

This is from my Lenovo T60:

and this is from my Compaq Presario CQ61-140EI:

Notice the difference?  Yes, the FN and CNTRL keys are swopped around.  Imagine the confusing it is causing.  I am pressing CNTRL-C and CNTRL-V but nothing gets copied.  That is because of pressing the CNTRL key, I am pressing the FN key and visa versa when I want to adjust the sound or something and nothing happens since I am pressing the CNTRL key in this case in stead of the FN key.

Is there not a standard for these kind of things?  If there is not, then there should be. This is driving me crasy and I use both machines on a daily basis.
