View Full Version : Toshiba lappy problem

12-11-2008, 04:36 PM
Hi all - my Toshiba Satellite A100 has developed an odd problem. When I try to enter via the keyboard, some keys are giving the correct response. If I have the caps key off, I am still getting caps responses eg when I press 0 I get a *, when I press m I get nothing happen at all, when I press 9 - I get 'Home'. Very mysterious!

I have done a little fiddling with the Fn key, but going around all of that (well, I did get my sound back..) but nothing seems to correct the problem. :(

Any clues would be appreciated, and as always TIA. :)

You've got numlock turned on, so that whole section of the keyboard is acting like the numeric pad on a fullsize keyboard would. Press Fn+NumLk to switch it off again :).

Um... Where is NumLk on a lappy?? :(

Aha - just found it! :)

Thanks for your help.
