Hello,
See if F10 or F11 are lit. If so press Fn and the key that has a light below it to deactivate it.
If you cannot login, use a USB keyboard to bypass that hurdle and run Windows to reconfigure.

Hope it helps.

Lifebook. Why can't I type on login page?


1. Press the Fn key a few times, it may be stuck.
2. Press the Fn key + the number lock key, your keyboard may be set as a number pad.
3. If you have access to a USB keyboard (e.g. from a desktop) then plug that in and see if it works.

How do I turn on wireless capability


To enable or disable wireless functions, you must use the Hot Key combination of "Fn" + "F8". This means to press and hold the "Fn" key (near the windows key), and the press the "F8". This is a toggling function. Each time you press the key, it will turn on or turn off the function. Look for the Wireless Light to ensure that the wireless activated.

Toshiba satellite - Letter "N"


First check to see if NumLock is turned on. This is usually indicated by a LED somewhere either above the keyboard or possibly at the front of the machine. If it is currently on, you will want to toggle it to OFF in order to type in your password. This is usually done by pressing the blue FN key located at the lower left corner of your keyboard, along with one of the function keys at the top of the screen. I believe on Toshiba laptops, this should be FN + F11, but check the keys themselves. Look for a blue picture, usually of a calculator. Holding the FN key down and then pressing this key should turn off NumLock and allow you to type the password.
Note: It is also possible that the 'N' key on your keyboard has gone bad. If this is the case, open the On Screen Keyboard, accessible through Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access, and type your password using this.
I hope this helps!

Your keyboard logic chip is in need of therapy.

Replacement of keyboard warranted.

Now, I thought that it might be a redesignation of your language code, but that proved not to be the case.
