There is a switch on the keyboard that must have gotten moved..for symbols..or the printwheel is in wrong. Take the pw out and reseat it. it should spin when it is snapped back in. you may have to close the cover for it to go to it's Home position.

I want to write something on my WALL but i want to attach my friend name on it, how can i do it ?


Type the "at" symbol and then start typing their name; you should get a little pop up after you've typed a few letters of their name. Click on their name to tag them.

Here's an example. Let's say you have a friend named "John Jenkins" who you want to included in a wall post. You can type something like this:

Hey @John

and then a pop up should appear where you can click on their name. The "@" sign will disappear and their name inserted and highlighted. Then finish typing the rest of your post

Hey John Jenkins, I heard you like chocolate ice cream. Me too!

The "@" symbol can be inserted on a US keyboard by holding shift and pressing the number 2 (above the "W" key).

Hope this is helpful. Here's a post on Facebook's blog about this: https://blog.facebook.com/blog.php?post=109765592130

When typing certain letters or numbers other letters and/or numbers automatically appear. Example when i type the "p" a space automatically appears; (p ap er). When i type the number...


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.

On my laptop in green are symbols and numbers, for example letter L has a green 3, when I try to type a word with the letter L a 3 appears, how do I change this? At the moment I have my old keyboard...


if you press the L key and the number 3 comes up. you likely have the num lock on.

is different for every computer but usually you can deactivate the num lock by pressing 2 keys at the same time.
the fist key is usually the key labeled (Fn) and the other key is usually a function key (the ones with F an a number), the way to find which is the other key is to look at the keyboard and try to find one that has a simble that looks like a tiny numerical key-pad
press both keys and a light that signals that the num lock is on should go off. at that point you should have your l and any other letters again typeable.

good luck
