This sounds like a problem with the keyboard itself. Laptop keyboards are somewhat difficult to repair. However, fortunately they're usually easy to replace.

I found a new keyboard for your pc on ebay at the following address:
http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=Toshiba+Satellite+A100-S2311TD+keyboard&_sacat=0&_odkw=Toshiba+Satellite+A100-S2311TD+PC+Notebook+keyboard&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

Generally laptop keyboards can be swapped out by prying off the plastic trim at the top of the keyboard. It's usually just snapped into place. This will typically reveal several screws holding down the keyboard. Remove these screws and carefully lift out the old keyboard. You'll see a ribbon cable coming off the back of the keyboard and plugging into a socket. Remove this cable. Sometime this is done by just pulling up on the connector and sometimes there

    Sometime this is done by just pulling up on the connector and sometimes there's a bar you have to move to release the socket. Repeat this process in reverse to install the new keyboard. I hope this helps you out.

This afternoon my laptop was working fine, then the keyboard started messing up, when I pressed any letter it came up with 4 other letters. Then i pressed '9' once and it continuously typed 9 until I


First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.

What is the fn key


I suspect this is a message you're seeing on a notebook, computer or other device that has a keyboard. The "Fn" key is the "Function" key. When the "Fn" key pressed at the same time another key is pressed - in this case the F4 key, a different result will occur when compared to pressing the F4 alone. This works the same way as when you use the SHIFT key and a letter key - instead of a lower case letter, you get an upper case letter.

Typically, the keys on the keyboard are labeled in a light color. Keys that have a second purpose or function, will have a second label printed in a different color / slight smaller text or both. This label may be text or an icon or graphic. In order to invoke the second function of the F4 key, you will need to inspect the keyboard for the key that has is labeled with "Fn" text on it. Here's what a typical "Fn" key looks like:

The Fn key is in the lower left corner of this keyboard.

I hope this answered your quiestion and good luck!

Volume of some keys (one octave) are lower than rest of the keyboard, any advise please ?


Take it in for repair. There may be a broken line for the velocity sensing of that octave of keys that is causing the velocity to be sensed low. The repair is NOT DIY if this is the case.

One of the keys does not work.


The key contact is dirty or damaged. The contacts are conductive rubber "pills" that get pressed onto circuit traces on a circuit board beneath the keys. Clean the contacts and the traces on the board with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips. In some cases the silicone ruber dome holding the pills are damaged and replacement is only solution. There are TWO contacts per key so that the key velocity can be mesured as the time differential between when the two contacts close. Be very careful of the ribbon cables between the upper and lower portion of the case.

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.

All keys in the 4th column enter a 6; press 3 displays 6


Does pressing the '6' key do nothing? If so, it sounds like the '6' key is stuck. Try repeatedly tapping on the '6' key to get it un-stuck.If that doesn't work, it's probably time to get a new calculator.

My asus 1000hp netbook has a locked keyboard, and can't log in .


Keys 7, 8, 9, 0, U, I, O, P, J, K, L, and M are permanently stuck as if Fn is pressed so it is in the number-pad mode. So I can't type the above keys at all. If I want to type 0 I would have to type M. Obviously I am using a different computer now, just in case anyone is wondering. So does anyone have any solution to this? Please help!

I N70 Nokia phone with me some of keys are not working and there is A continus Beep sound is coming ...


a continuos beep is probably because some of the keys are getting pressed and that can lead to the problem that some keys cannot work at a time because simultaneously , more keys cannot be pressed and hence causing the problem with some keys.  Try to align the case and make sure all keys are not too pushed in.
