WINDOWS XP TABLET EDITION WILL NOT TURN OFF & Keyboard Glitch

TOSHIBA Portege M700
WINDOWS XP TABLET PC EDITION

i turned off my computer and it reported "installing update do not turn off". It has now been running 2 hours with the same message. I believe it is an update for Adobe Reader (free version) either 8 or maybe 9.

Just before I turned it off I noticed a peculiar typo. I was entering in an online area DK9 - the DK was on the left hand side and visible. Whenever I entered the "9" the cursor jumped to the left of DK but no number appeared.

So I decided to turn off the computer. And the above probelm developed. An answer to both problems would be appriciated.

Hi Denniskeys,

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the numberpad function in active on your keyboard while your trying to type. Perhaps you could try disactivating the number pad by using (FN+F11) keys. If its tuned on, you will see a small green light under the F11 key. Once its turned off, that light will also turn off.

Try typing ofter turning it off and see what happens.

Hope this helps.

I think your Windows installation is damaged. Boot from your operating system CD. (Go into setup mode F2 or delete during bootup. Go to the Boot select screen and set up to boot from CD. Place your OS CD in the drive and power on.) When it boots, it should give you the option of REPAIR. Select this and allow Windows to repair itself. I hope this helps you resolve your problem.

Strarting up problem


Did you try Safe Mode and selected "last known good configuration" but still rebooted into the same situation?

Then try this:

ReInstalling Windows XP:

  1. Place your Windows XP set up disk in your CD drive.
  2. Turn off your computer and change your BOOT order to boot from CDs first.
  3. Turn your computer back on.
  4. Press any key on your keyboard when it asks you to.
  5. Press enter when you see a blue screen, one of the options should say, "To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.".
  6. Press enter to start the windows set up.
  7. Accept the Licence and Agreement and confirm that the setup is searching for current versions on XP.
  8. Press "R" when the set up has found your current version of XP.
  9. Notice that the Set up is deleting all your windows xp files and replacing them. (This will not cause loss of data)

Toshiba Portege M400 to Vista


Here's a link for Toshiba's UK site. I looked around a bit and they don't seem to offer much in the way of drivers. You might try driverguide.com I've found it to be a good place to find those hard to find drivers, plus it's easier to use than most manufacturer's sites.
