As 'ziau' said, it was nothing more than the 'numlock' key. I had pressed it when fixing a problem with my touchpad.
A 'fix' sure is satisfying 'after the fact'!
Thanks, ziau!

Is that all??your 'k' turns to '2' coz ur 'numlock' has enabled..to disabled that thing just steadily press the 'fn' icon on ur keyboard between 'ctrl' and 'windows key' and press the key that has the 'num lk' icon that were inside a box..if im not mistaken that thing is in the 'end' key..as simple as that..

Keys c v b are not responding - I've changed the batteries


It is the Keyboard or Word Processing program. Not a Battery. Try to use a USB Wireless Mouse/Keyboard set via the USB ports to see if you still get same condition occurring. If this solves the problem, you know the Keyborad is defective.

You may try to attach a USB Wireless Mouse and Keyboard set and bypass the system you are currently using. If it is a Keyboard only problem, try a USB independent keyboard and again bypass the computers unit to see if the problem still exisists.

My toshiba laptop usb input pots does not detect usb flash memory and printer


1. Check whether USB/Chip set driver installed properly or not. 2. Check if a USB mouse or Keyboard working other then flash memory or printer. If working then your USB port is disabled in windows registry. 3. To enter the registry, got to Run, type regedit, Enter. 4. In the registry follow the path, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\usbstor 5. Check the value of the key START. 6. If the value is 0x00000003 (3) then OK. if the vale is 0x00000004 (4), then change it to 3. 7. for changing double click in Start key, a window will pop up. change the value from 4 to 3 then press enter. 8. Close the registry. And check the printer and Flash drive is working or Not.
Note: be careful while working with registry.

Im using vista as my os. and my laptop is hp pavilion, both my control keys are not working. what should i do?


You might have changed settings of stickey keys

Check the setting in start- control panel- ease of access center- make keyboard easier to use.

Go to sticky keys -uncheck the box.

Also check the other settings in it.

It will resolve your issue.

If yes.. if not..you might need to remove the keyboard driver from device manager.

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.

External keyboard hookup issue


Yes, you can establish your serial port in BIOS With the use of USB ports on computers the serial and com ports are not set up many times. Upon start up and before the windows login screen will see which key to hit to get into BIOS. It is usually an F# key. Once inside BIOS look for ports and toggle until the serial port is showing up. That will establish your serial port.

Keyboard


The Numeral Lock mode is turned on by pressing the key named "NUM LOCK" which is usually located on the top of the number keypad (on far right side of keyboard).

However, laptop keyboards are different. Most laptops do not have a separate numeral keypad set. Those laptops usually use a blue (or other color-coded) "Fn" key, on the bottom left. You must press that Fn key at the same time as the "Num Lock" key of same colr. Then a light comes on to indicate the mode change, and some alpha-numeric keys on the keyboard now become your numeral keypad. On mine, it is 789, UIO (456), JKL (123) and M (which is zero).

If this is too confusing, you can plug in a cheap full size desktop keyboard, using the USB or PS2 port on your laptop. That is what I prefer, because the funky integrated dual-key deal interferes with all the touch-typing I learned 37 years ago.

Keyboard problem


It may be easier to do so, and you won't lose any saved work on installed programmes and updates installed since you inserted the keyboard. You could try re installing the keyboard and touch pad drivers and if no change carry out the above.
