Toshiba satellite pro keyboard typing weird characters

I just sent my laptop in and had to have the harddrive and mother board replaced (for the third time in ONE year!!) When I got it back this time the keyboard would not type correctly. example: I would type a j and a 6 would show up, etc. etc.
I called for help and was told that as long as the num lock was on the keyboard would do this. I told the gentleman (if that is what you call him) that this has never had to be done before as I use my number keyboard a lot while I type and he proceeded to tell me that it has always been that way with keyboards.......so with my keyboard as long as the num lock button is turned off the keyboard types correctly. This is what took care of my problem but I wish someone would tell me how I can type on my keyboard and still use the num lock button. I have always been able to do this and it does get annoying when you use both alot.

    Most people doing lots of work with numbers tend to use the Numeric Pad, others just the numbers above the letters. They always work, never get confused ands have only one function. Laptop keyboards, without separate numeric pads, are frustrating to use as numeric pad only sometimes. Num pads above the alpha pads work just fine.

I am not sure what make your computer is exactly so, I would recommend google.

It sounds like it could simply be a driver error. But I am not really sure. I would try updating the drivers for the keyboard and see if that helps. Maybe even reinstall them to assure that none of them have been corrupted or somehow deleted.

My email is mattweed9@gmail.com. If this does not work email me with the your problem in the subject title, and we will see what we can do.

I am having problems with my keyboard. When I plug in an external keyboard, everything works fine, when I use the keyboard on my laptop, the characters are wrong.


Remove the keyboard from the system and plug it back in. If that doesn't work you will have to replace the keyboard. Ebay for less than $20 for a keyboard.

My toshiba laptop is typing wrong characters but my wireless tevion keyboard is o k. Is there a solution to this ?


Sounds like the laptop keyboard went bad and thats why its typing wrong characters. Best way to verify this is to use a USB keyboard on the laptop, if the USB keyboard is typing the correct keys then you know the laptop keyboard is bad. If the USB keyboard is typing the wrong keys as well then you know its a setting in windows that is causing the keys to type wrong characters.

I can't get my keyboard to type any character on my toshiba satellite notebook


If you are lucky it is just a stuck key. Turn it upside down and spank it on the bottom. Then try it again. The keys can just stick by typing on them and hitting them at an angle or be caused by mechanical wear or a foreign substance ie dirt or spilled liquids.

It is also possible you have a keyboard failure or even a issue with the main board. The keyboard can be replaced for $100 plus labor but eh motherboard can cost as much as a new laptop.

Toshiba Laptop Keyboard problem


My Toshiba Satellite A45 S120 keyboard has a problem, some of the keys are not working. When you type it does noting. Sometimes when you start the computer, it continuously types the letter eeeeeeee. You can hit some keys randomly and this will stop, but if you start a program (eg. ms word) the same thing happens.

How do i remove the keyboard


Usually you can remove the panel right above the keyboard, this will allow you to access the keyboard screws. The keyboard should swing up allowing you to unplug and remove it.
