I saw your post asking for help then your second post saying your problem was fixed. How were you unable to unlock your keys. My cat walked on my mom's laptop and somehow locked the keys and now she cannot use her laptop. Please help if you can. Thanks. Heaven Warner email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org

Wow, this sounds like a problem one of my customers had with his Toshiba. I'll have to look thru my invoices to see if it's the same model. Anyway the only way it can be removed is to contact Toshiba and tell them the problem and they will give you a UPS or Fedex Shipping Label and fix the problem at no cost to you. This is a known defect of theirs.
As far I know FN keys are related with specific motherboard drivers.
Thoshiba recovery cd/dvd during restore/re-install, loads all toshiba drivers and utilities for operating fn keys.
If the operative system loaded in the laptop is no OEM then you will have this problem, and in order to fix it you must:
First install the operative system (clean install)
Second install: chipset drivers. This drivers instructs the operative system how to detect specific hardware. Must be installed in first order.
Third: install drivers (ethernet card, audio, video controller, toshiba utilities, etc). At this point verify all FN keys ( check display settings, stand by/ hybernation, etc).
four: Load all software needed (microsoft office, etc).
Can you tell me whether this is a bios power on password, a hard drive lock password, or a windows administrative operating system password? I'm assuming that it is asking for a password when you say "locked".
My Toshiba Satellite A45 S120 keyboard has a problem, some of the keys are not working. When you type it does noting. Sometimes when you start the computer, it continuously types the letter eeeeeeee. You can hit some keys randomly and this will stop, but if you start a program (eg. ms word) the same thing happens.
I had the same problem for my laptop as well. I basically turned it off and removed the battery for ten minutes, then put it back in and turned it on to which it started working. I don't know why it stopped working before or started to work again when I removed the battery but it's happened three times and everytime that has always worked for me. I know it's not very technical but try it.
