Question about Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5895 Notebook

Keyboard keys malfunctioning

The keyboard on my laptop is not working as it should. When pressing the '1' key, it loads Windows Media Player. '2' opens up IE. The laptop works fine with a USB keyboard and the internal keyboard unplugged. I figured this would be a hardware issue with the internal keyboard, so I replaced it with a new one - but alas, same issue. Any ideas?

SOURCE: problem in keyboard keys are displaying multiple characters at the same time

Hook external keyboard to the laptop, if okay! replace the laptop keyboard, but if problem is the same, it may be device driver issue, or possible virus attack on your system, update definitions and run a deep or full scan, if okay, try a system restore and bring the laptop back to an earlier time before this happened.

My Samsung laptop's (np-r430-jb01ae) function keys are not working. how could i solve it?


Step 1:
Function keys are special keys used for assigning program shortcuts and specialty tasks to the keyboard. They are located at the top of most keyboards and labeled "F1" through "F12." Some keyboards may only feature 10 function keys, while others may have as many as 18. These keys often go unutilized by the average computer user, but they may have very important tasks for some users, which can lead to problems when the keys do not respond. Fixing nonresponsive or malfunctioning function keys is quite simple, and should only take a few minutes.

Connect your keyboard to your computer, and power it up. Open a program that uses the function keys such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Check your keyboard for an "F-Lock" or "Function Lock" key. This key is used to toggle function-key support; when it is toggled on, the function keys will not work. Press the "F-Lock" key and then try using a function key in the selected program. "F1" is a good key to test, because it is set to open a "Help" document in all Microsoft software. If the key does not work, press the "F-Lock" key a second time, and test the keys again. If the keys still do not work and you are running the Windows 7 operating system, you may need to install a "hotfix" from Microsoft to fix the key functionality. Navigate to the link entitled "Microsoft Support: Some Function Keys do not Work Correctly." (See Below.) Some function keys or keyboard shortcuts do not work correctly on a computer that is running Windows 7 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975741 Resolve unexpected Function (F1 - F12) or other special key behavior on a Microsoft keyboard http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894513 Click on "View and request hotfix downloads" located beneath the title of the article to access the Microsoft Hotfix database. Agree to the terms and conditions, then download the hotfix. When the download is finished, run the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. You may need to restart your computer after the installation is complete. Your function keys should now work properly.

How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

Keyboard of myASUS K50IJ-XA1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Black) is locked How to unlock the same? Kindly help


Well, do you mean only the keyboard is locked? Can you boot the system properly? Is the mouse working? Which Operating System is running on your Laptop?
Here are a couple solutions you can try before you let me know the above queries.
1. Press and hold down the Windows Logo key on the keyboard while pressing the L key on the keyboard once. In other words, Press Windows Key + L once. If this doesn't work, don't forget to include the Fn key while pressing these two keys. Windows+Fn+L. Still nothing?
2. Turn off the Machine, remove the battery and unplug the charger. Leave it for at least 10 seconds, you can press the power On button on the laptop without the battery and the charger installed/plugged in. Now re-install the battery, and turn back On the machine. It should work.
If you need further help, if the problem persists, Let me know with the details.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Keyboard keys L/G/R acting weird


It sounds like the Windows is registering the "Windows Key" as being in the "Pressed" position. This is the key between control and alt on the left side of the keyboard. Press it a few times and see if that helps. If it does not it sounds like that key or the keyboard may need replacement.
