Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook
Every so often, in the middle of typing, something goes wrong with my keyboard and I get a message saying: ?The CD or DVD Drive is not inserted. Please insert the drive which can play CD or DVD.? When I see that message, typing is virtually impossible for a few minutes. Some times it even goes into a bigger screen (everything becomes bigger, kind of like the way it looks on safe mode). Another thing I've noticed is that there is a symbol right above the "9" key that looks like a 4-leaf clover, and it lights up when this problem occurs most of the time. A virus scan produced nothing. Does anyone know how this can be fixed? I never use discs on the computer, so I don't know why this message occurs.
You may have pressed the Fn (function key) and F10 by accident at some time, pres Fn and F10 again to turn off the embedded cursor keypad, this enables/dissables the light grey labeled keys. This is all i can find related to that key, otherwise the other function is a light to show the dvd is active, but that icon doesnt look like a 4 leaf clover. This may be the problem when you type, so either the keyboard sensors are faulty or turn off the Fn F10 cursor use, or go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the next window look down to ythe line that says keyboards, click '+'sign and on the line below right click then select uninstall. Restart notebook and the keyboard will self install again hopefully the problem will be solved.
