You can put your keyboard in "Numlock" mode if you have a lot of numeric data to input and use these keys for numbers rather than the normal letters. The key sequence varies by manufacturer but it's typically going to be labelled with a rectangle around text such as "NUM LK" and is activated by holding in the FN key and then pressing the labelled key. Deactivation is the same.

As you've found out the hard way, it can be really confusing when this happens accidentally.

Windows keyboard shortcut commands


There are many. Do a Google search for "Windows Key Combinations" and you should find several links to a list of the available commands. The "Windows Key" is that key between the Ctrl and Alt key on your keyboard that looks like a window with 4 panes in it. You hold down the Windows Key while pressing any one of several others, depending on what you want to do. afor example Holding down the Windows key and pressing R will open a "run" box. The Windows Key plus E will take you to "My Computer". the Windows key plus D will immediately take you to the Desktop, etc., and so forth.

The number 2 is showing up on your keyboard because you have the Num Lk (Number Lock) key on and you are probably hitting the FN key then the K key so the little number 2 that is on the K key appears as what is typed. for example: On my keyboard there is a Big Letter K key and also on that key is a small number 2 which is blue. In order for me to get the number 2 when I type I have to have the Num Lk key on and then I have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key on the lower left of my keyboard then hit the K key and the number 2 is what gets typed.

Well it could be several things, not the least of things is radiated electrical noise. Seriously, I had several customers get hit with this problem. One test was to hold your hands just over the keyboard. If random characters appear, you sitting within the radius of a strong transformer.

Look around the area you are in, do you see any type of antenna nearby? If you do, rotate your lap top 90 degrees.

Also, the keyboard may be starting to fail. From your description I would suspect that the scan code for the key you pressed is not getting reported back to the CPU properly.

Replacing the keyboard on a Satellite is fairly straight forward. The replacement part from Toshiba only cost $35. and that included shipping.

Computer is locked in the green symbols of the keyboard


TO SHUT OFF the green keys, you need to disable the multiligual or French keyboard layouts. For Windows 7:

Click CONTROL PANEL
click CLOCK, LANGUAGE, AND REGION

under REGION AND LANGUAGE
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS... etc.

click KEYBOARDS AND LANGUAGES
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS

.......for example, by clicking on a keyboard name (ie. US or and UNITED KINGDOM for example) and then clicking PROPERTIES to the rtight, you can see the actual key layout.......

On the list of installed languages, click anything multiligual or French, and then click REMOVE found on the right-hand column

click APPLY
click OK
Then you've removed the French.

Otherwise you have to click the LEFT ALT key and then the LEFT SHIFT key to swich back and forth between the green keys and the white keys.
