    Absolutely brilliant, after many frustrating days my problem was fixed in 2 minutes. I cannot thank you enough. It may have only been a small problem to some but it was one I couldn't fix.

Look for the numlock light somewhere near the keyboard. It's the light with a drawing of a lock with a 9.

If it's lit up. turn it off by pressing the numlock key.

Turning it back on will activate the number keypad (consists of 9-11 keys in the middle of the keyboard). So instead of getting letters, numbers appear.

Hope this is your case. Kindly rate me if the issue got fixed.

How do i reset my toshiba satellite L305-S5955 to factory default & erase all data from it?


Close out any software currently running on your Toshiba Satellite L305 laptop.

Navigate to the laptop's "Start" menu and choose "Shut Down."


Hold down the laptop's "0" key and press the power button.

Keep the key held down during the boot up process until the "Toshiba Recovery Wizard" window loads on the screen.


Click the check box labeled "Recovery of Factory Default Software." Choose the "Next" option.


Choose the "Recover to out-of-box state" radio button. Select the "Next" button and click "Next" again.

Wait for the "Press any key" prompt to appear and tap a key to restart the laptop.


Use the prompts that appear on the screen to choose your region, time zone and keyboard settings.

Type your new Windows user name and password in the text boxes when prompted. Click "Finish" to load the new operating system.

Keyboard letters are numbers and numbers are letters


Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated.

This activation is indicated by the key being lit up.


If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock.

The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard


Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor.

In the registry, open the below folders.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\
Control Panel\
Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.

Problem with sony vaio keyboard


Sounds like you've got something stuck under your shift key. Carefully clean out under the keys, try a paintbrush and a hoover (on low suction if possible).

Be careful not to knock any of the keys off. They're held on by small clips which pop out or break easily.
