Hi,

Clean the keyboard.

Try to lift the key and check whether it is actually stuck or not.

If the key is stuck just pop the key off with a butter knife or something flat.

Clean the rubber boot with warm water and replace. if that don't work, you need to get a new one.

Some don't have the rubber boot. in that case you can use a que-tip with rubbing alcohol to clean under the key.

You could even try silicon spray as a last resort. last suggestion...I promise.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

This could be a few things:
The simple ones first:
1. fn key is stuck (bang the keyboard lightly on the desk a few times)
2. The wrong driver for the keyboard is loaded (Unistall the keyboard driver, download the lastetest and reinstall with the setup.exe supplied, otherwise windows will just install the old keyboard driver again)

This this does not work, post me the make and model of the keyboard, operating system, as I'm asumming it's windows.
With a little history: i.e. Is this a new install etc..

When i type the letters on my keyboard, the numbers show up instead. i don't know how to revert the system or functions back to normal. i must've accidentally pressed a button to change the characters when...


Sounds like the keyboard is in NUM LOCK mode

They keys map like this:

7 8 9 = 7 8 9
u i o = 4 5 6
j k l = 1 2 3
0 . = m .

Look for the NUM LOCK key on your keyboard.

Typically, you press the FN key (lower left corner) and the NUM LOCK key (typically towards the upper right) together to put the keyboard back into regular mode.

How brighten the screen?


Look on your keyboard on the "f" keys (f1, f2, etc...) for a symbol that looks like a sun or shining light. Something that would indicate brightness. Now, hold down the 'fn' (function) key on the bottom left of your keyboard and then press the backlight key you just found.

I need an explanation as to the secondary function of the keys on my NB305. Mainly the top row of 'F' keys, but the remainder of the keyboard as well. What do all these little symbols on the keys mean?


F1 through F12 are called function keys because they execute programmed functions when pressed. Used in combination with the Fn key, keys marked with icons execute specific functions on the computer. The function executed by individual keys depends on the software you are using.





1. Sound Mute: Pressing Fn + ESC in a windows environment turns sound on or off. Press Fn + Enter to simulate Enter or the enhanced keyboard's numeric keypad. 2. Instant security: Press Fn + F1 to blank the screen to prevent others from accessing your data. To restore the screen and original setting, press any key or press the Touch Pad. 3. Power save mode: Pressing Fn + F2 changes the power save mode. 4. Standby: When you press Fn + F3, the computer enters Standby. 5. Hibernation: When you press Fn + F4, the computer enters Hibernation. 6. Display selection: Press Fn + F5 to change the active display device. Hold down Fn and press F5 again to change the device. 7. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F6 decreases the display brightness in decrements. 8. Internal LCD screen Brightness: Pressing Fn + F7 increases the display brightness in increments. 9. Wireless setting: If your computer has both Bluetooth and Wireless LAN functions, you can press Fn + F8 to select which type of wireless communication you want to use. 10. Touch Pad: Pressing Fn + F9 in a windows environment enables or disables the Touch Pad function. 11. Press Fn + F10 or Fn + F11 to access the integrated keypad. When activated, the keys with gray markings on the bottom edge become numeric keypad keys (Fn + F11) or cursor control keys (Fn + F10). The power on default for both settings is off. Press Fn + F12 (ScrLock) to lock the cursor on a specific line. The power on default is off. 12. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (reduce): To reduce the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 1 key while holding down the Fn key. (13. TOSHIBA Zooming Utility (enlarge): To enlarge the icon size on the desktop or the application window, press the 2 key while holding down the Fn key.

Keyboard trouble


you need to reload that software that came with the keyboard. Uninstall the keyboard from device manager :- Control Panel>system>device manager. Then reload the software for the keyboard, which should also have the drivers. If you do not have the software, let me know the make and model of the keyboard and I will see what I can do.

Hope this helps

Display brightness


You should have an "Fn" key. It's between CTRL and Windows key on the lower left corner of the keyboard. Hold down the Fn key while pressing the UP arrow key.
