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.

You can set a user password from inside Windows. From the configuration panel look for an icon that represents two persons and click on it. Follow instructions on setting a user password.
You can also set a password on boot but you have to be careful: If you forget it you cannot open the tablet to remove the password. You will need to take the computer to a Toshiba Certified Service Center.

To set the password on boot you can use the BIOS SetUp configuration or a Toshiba Windows applications (HRWset).

For Windows XP tablet PC edition 2005
If you have the CrossMenu application you can run the HRWsetup from there. You can also go to All programs, Toshiba Utilities and look for HRWSetUp.

For Windows Vista or Windows 7, the name of the application may be Toshiba Security Assist.

Be very careful. You must not lose the password

I want to write pen with toshiba portege tablet on XP


If you have Windows XP tablet PC Edition 2005 installed on it, you can use the Wacom Pen to enter text instesd of type it.

On Windows XP tablet PC Edition 2005, there is an Input panel Icon on the tray bar, usually to the left, close to the Start button.
Use the pen to click the Input Panel. When it opens showing you a black line on yellowish backround you can start using the pen as if it were on paper. Depending on the pen input setting it will insert automatically or waits for you to press the insert button.
However for the converted text to be inserted you need to have a text editing software open (Word Pad for example.)

If when you open the input panel you see a keyboard you can change that to handwriting (continuous line) or typing separate letters.

The computer can be taught to recognize your handwriting: You will need to practice. You might have to download and install the relevant ink recognition package for your language. Look for it on the Microsoft tablet PC page.

Toshiba portege 3500 tablet pc


Hello,

You should contact Toshiba service and order a recovery CD for that model. You can also install any Windows XP version, but it will not provide support for the tablet functionalities, which means that you will have a notebook that is not a tablet.

Note: Actually the original operating system is Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005: It is Win XP Pro + Tablet PC software.

I have heard that Vista provides support for Tablet functionalities, but you may still have to buy it from Toshiba because of the drivers for the specific hardware.

I installed Linux Ubuntu on a tablet. The latest version of Ubuntu provides some support for the wacom stylus pen, but not much else.

Hope it gives you some leads to follow through.
