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.

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.

Numbers instead of letters


I think you may have the numlock key on.

press and hold the 'fn' key and press the 'Numlk' key (F11)

Hi,

LG products usually have a 12 character serial number format, comprising mixed letters and numbers, e.g: 123ABCD45678.

If you can find a number on the manufacturers sticker consisting of, 3 numbers, then 4 letters, then another 5 numbers (as above), this will be the serial number.

Hope this helps.

Well it could be several things, not the least of things is radiated electrical noise. Seriously, I had several customers get hit with this problem. One test was to hold your hands just over the keyboard. If random characters appear, you sitting within the radius of a strong transformer.

Look around the area you are in, do you see any type of antenna nearby? If you do, rotate your lap top 90 degrees.

Also, the keyboard may be starting to fail. From your description I would suspect that the scan code for the key you pressed is not getting reported back to the CPU properly.

Replacing the keyboard on a Satellite is fairly straight forward. The replacement part from Toshiba only cost $35. and that included shipping.

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.
