Hey,

Find a video on how to unscrew things, there is a place where the keyboard plugs in. Check (carefully, following instructions) that it is plugged in correctly, e.g. unplug and replug the ribbon cable. If that doesn't work, it is possible to buy a replacement keyboard on ebay.

SOURCE: keyboard

Solution #1, Go to RUN type in 'msconfig'.
In startup uncheck MotiveSB.
Try to reinstall the keyboard driver. Solution #2
  Sounds like it may also be dirt or some spilled soda.
-- Had the same problem after an OJ spill. --
If you feel comfortable about removing the keyboard, disconnect all the wires and cables, then give the keyboard a thorough washing. Then let it dry overnight.
If that doesn't sound like something you want to attempt, then you will have to take it in to a computer shop.

SOURCE: my laptop keyboard is typing different letters and numbers

It sounds like your keyboard is starting to go. Try plugging a usb keyboard and using that. If your keyboard needs replacing, it may be around $50, but that will depend.

What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck


Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

When I type letter keys, numbers come up with the letters


That's because some are dual function keys; you've probably hit the 'Alt' or 'Fn' key to the bottom left of the keyboard by accident. If you look carefully at the letter keys, they should have numbers on them in a different colour/smaller text.

Left side of keyboard 123456789 is not working


Do you mean the right side of the keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters?
If so, you have enabled the NumLk which turns the RHS of the keyboard into the number pad.
Press the NumLk key near F11, F12 function key and the NumLk LED will switch off and return your RH keys back to letters.

Do you have a descriptions of keyboard on Windows Vista There are keys with letters and numbers with icons on them . I would like the description of the keys.


Hi.

The layout of keys can differ with different model and make laptops. The keys with letters and numbers on them are used with the Num Lock key, if you press the Num Lock key them keys will type numbers instead of letters. If you press that key again they will type letters as normal.

The keys with icons on them are used with the function (Fn) key. That means that you hold down Fn and and use the F keys to adjust things like brightness, volume, mute and Wireless radio etc.

If you are wanting a full breakdown of your laptop models keyboard then i suggest you download the user manual from HP support website. Link below.

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.

My Toshiba Satellite Pro A300-GR laptop wont type the letters o l k i and numbers eight and nine as well as comma - stop - down arrow not working - right arrow not working and delete key not working - also...


You have Number Lock set on your PC - Have a look for a key top right hand side, it will have something like NumLck written on the KEY - you may need to use that Key in combination with the FN key - bottom left of keyboard - there should be a light somewhere on the keyboard which goes on/off as you toggle the NumLck key. You should see different coloured numbers on the key s*()UIOPJKLM These are the numbers and symbols that will be displayed when the NumLock is used

When typing along the keyboard qwertyuiop, the keys that have numbers will type numbers instead of letters,uio will type 456. If you hold the FN key in it will then type type letters, how do I correct this...


This means that NUM LOCK is set to on. All you have to do is to press the Fn key and then locate the NumLock key and press it. The num lock is usually also highlighted with the same color as the Fn key.

Please comment back if you still have issues. I will be glad to assist you further.
