Sometimes, the keys stop working if the circuit below the kepad gets dirty. The keypad can be cleaned by unscrewing the laptop, however, I won't recommend to do it on your own if you haven't opened a laptop earlier. Get this done by someone who knows this stuff. On second thoughts, if cleaning the circuit does not do any good, its time to get the keyboard replaced of attach an external keyboard. Please revert back with the reaults.

My fn key is working backwards how to fix


You need to restart (to enter in BIOS) your computer to change this.
While first black screen comes Press F2 or del (this may differ in your laptop).

If you post exact type of laptop i can see what bios you have, but you can look for yourself for it.

If a bios screen (may be unknown to you) appear then find Function Key Behavior select Multimedia Key First or Function Key First.

Function Key First

This is the default option. Press any function key to perform the associated function. For multimedia action, press Fn + the required multimedia key.

Multimedia Key First

How do I use the prtsc button on toshiba ? It has END/prtsc. THANKS


If the 2 words written on the key are different colour then you might have to press the Fn key + End/prtsc for one of the options. If they are both the same colour then the Shift key + End/prtsc.

The Fn key has the same colour letters as the key which is pressed with it to perform a particular function.
