I am using ubuntu 12.04 in my new Asus K55 (Intel® Chief River Chipset HM76). It works pretty well but the SD card reader is not recognized, and the Fn keyboard keys are not working. I have followed this link but it does not help.

Can you help me? Thanks.

Here is the lspci output (for the not recognized card reader):

It seems the card reader problem has already been solved: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/udisks/+bug/971876

In my case it worked just downloading and installing the package, after a reboot, but you might prefer to follow the full procedure.

From the information you provided, we have the same operating system, motherboard and card reader, so I hope this solution will work for you, too.

About the Fn-keys problem, it's a different issue and I honestly don't know the solution. If someone else will find it, I hope they'll give you (us) an answer :)

Newer kernels (the 3.5.x included in Ubuntu 12.10) solve the FN Keys problem. However, the SD card module requires to be loaded. As @Marco says, it can be done following this link.
