Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

1 Answer

Fn Mode Stuck???

Maybe this is a dumb question. I have a new Toshiba Satellite A100. For some unknown reason, every now and then the keys on the right side (the ones that have blue and red characters on them) go "funky". When it is working, the blue characters are the ones that should be coming up when pressed. Occasionally for no reason it switches to the red ones???? Help would be greatly appreciated as it it quite annoying. The only way I've found to fix it is to shut down whatever program I'm typing in and restart. Sometimes I have to do it more than once. Is there a quick way to fix this. I've tried the Fn lock but then letters like O and P don't work. Grr. Frustrating.

    I have the same problem. Only mine affects the characters in the top on the number keys, making it very difficult to send an email when I don't have the @ symbol. It is annoying because it only affects the one program that I have running but not another one. I think I somehow turned it on by hitting Fn + Ctrl +shift, but I don't know how to turn it off. Any help would be great.
