Your laptop keyboard has a modern emulated numpad. It acts like the numpad on a regular keyboard (since there clearly isn't room for one on your lappy).
Make sure that you are not holding the Fn key while typing, and most important, turn off Numlock. (There should be a button for it on your keyboard and a light that shows if it's on accordingly, the light should have a number and lock logo on it).
Hope this helps! Stay spicy and happy lappying!

Toshiba satellite c655d-5332 keys problem


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.



hope this helps

Some of my keys are printing differently in my Toshiba Satellite A75 S209 Laptop


You need to turn off the Number Lock. Press the ScrLk/NumLk key it is located near the F11 key. When you turn off the number lock the NumLk LED light will also switch off and you will get letters instead of numbers.

Need instructions for keyboard toshiba satellite laptop , need to know what keys to push when using the numbers in the keyboard that are also letters


No need for the instruction manual. When your going to use the numbers that are inside of the letters, hold down the the FN key and then push the number that you want to be displayed. For example holding down the FN key and then pressing the L key produces the number 3 for me. Try your keys out and see what you get.

When typing along the keyboard qwertyuiop, the keys that have numbers will type numbers instead of letters,uio will type 456. If you hold the FN key in it will then type type letters, how do I correct this...


This means that NUM LOCK is set to on. All you have to do is to press the Fn key and then locate the NumLock key and press it. The num lock is usually also highlighted with the same color as the Fn key.

Please comment back if you still have issues. I will be glad to assist you further.
