I think the only solution is to phisically remove the key from the keyboard - VERY gently, in order not to break or send flying the pieces to which the key is attached. The little rubber button underneath might be squished below those pieces.

Depending on the keyboard and computer hot key setup, I believe holding CTRL and pressing the FN key will disable FN lock, if not try ALT and FN.

How to identify function key on emachines keyboard


No that's the Windows key

For a desktop computer keyboard, keys F1 through F12 are the Function keys. No Fn key needed.

For a laptop computer hold the Fn key down, then tap once on the F1 through F12 keys

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.

I need help with my key board. When I use the letter key the number comes up. Such as I push J and get 1 I push K and get 2 . How do I get back to using yhe letter. Thanks Marion


Marion, I imagine this is on your laptop? You need to turn off Number Lock. On Toshiba Laptops, I am pretty sure you hold down the "FN" key and the hit F11. That should turn off your Number Lock. If you look closely at your keyboard, you will see that J corresponds with 1 and K corresponds with 2 and so on.

Hope this helps! Let me know!
