Toshiba Satellite L500 - Keyboard Commands

I have recently bought a Toshiba Satellite L500 laptop. When playing a cd while typing a word document, I've noticed that hitting the key 'A' pauses the disc, while the key 'Q' mutes the sound. These are not listed as Hotkeys, nor is there any reference to these functions in the manual. Any clues as to how I might reconfigure these commands? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

That is indeed a problem with keyboard commands.
Try to hook up an external keyboard through your USB connector and see what happens.

Try this to see if it resolves your issue.
1. From the Tools menu, select Customize…
2. In the Customize dialog box click the Keyboard… button
3. The Customize Keyboard dialog box appears
4. Click Reset All… (The button will be shaded out if you have not made any keyboard customizations)
5. Click Yes in the pop up box
6. Click Close
7. Click Close on the Customize dialog box
This would be done in the Word program.

Left side of keyboard 123456789 is not working


Do you mean the right side of the keyboard is typing numbers instead of letters?
If so, you have enabled the NumLk which turns the RHS of the keyboard into the number pad.
Press the NumLk key near F11, F12 function key and the NumLk LED will switch off and return your RH keys back to letters.

depending on which OS you have installed, if XP run your OS CD in repair mode, i.e. the second time "r" appears on the screen you will be reinstalling your OS and can rest your password when prompted to on the screen, else in vista or win7 use the recovery CD to reset your password.

Toshiba L500 - the @ and " are reversed


Hello,

its normal, its not all keyboard that has there "@" on number 2. Even the latest HP laptops that are produced these days have their @ on the same position like yours. You will find @ at the right side of the key board, near later "L".

Its normal, there is nothing to worry about because its not a fault. Just try to get use with the new changes.

Take care.
