    I have the same problem with the exact same keys (esc, f1, `, 1, tab, q, capslock, a, and z) on our 4 year old toshiba satellite M35x-s109.

    It's helpful to hear that replacing the keyboard didn't help you. I was going to try that next.

    Intermittently, these keys on the left end of the keyboard don't respond. I first noticed the problem running in Windows XP, especially upon starting up or waking from sleep or hibernation. I tried running from a couple different linux livecd's but found the same problem intermittently, especially upon startup. I then found that the problem occured within bios setup intermittently. I reset the bios to default settings; didn't help. I flashed the bios from v1.90 to the just released v2.00, no help. Back to v1.90, didn't help. I removed the keycaps and found a little typical dirt, but nothing unusal. Vacuumed, didn't help. I ran memory tests, came up good. I swapped the memory, just in case, and reran memtest, still came up good. Still get intermittent unresponsive keys upon cold boot.

    I thought it must be a bad keyboard or connection, but your post suggests it may be something else I haven't imagined. I haven't tried a USB keyboard.

My caps wont turn off


Try this. Press: Start>Accessories>Accessibility>On Screen keyboard. Try turning it off from there. If that doesn't work:
1. Choose Start'Settings'Control Panel and double-click Regional and Language Options.
2. In the Languages tab, click the Details button.
3. In the Settings tab, you should see a button called Key Settings. It may be grayed out. If it is, click the Add button and add another keyboard layout (it doesn't matter which one). Press OK.
4. Back in the Settings tab, click to make sure your original keyboard is highlighted and press the Key Settings button.
5. Now under To turn off Caps Lock, click the radio button next to Press the Shift key. Click OK.
6. Click OK twice more to exit the other two dialog boxes.

No keyboard instructions


You need to press the Function button, then the num lock button. The function button may be labeled FN or F in a different color, the same color as the num lock button.

If that doesn't work, go to start, all programs, accessories, accesibility, on screen keyboard....it will display a regular keyboard on your screen, then click on the num lock key on that keyboard.

Laptop keyboard is not working correctly


Accoring to the problem you have mentioned i am sure the keys are not connected properly. The tab key is connected on the Caps lock key. Moreover make sure you press the fn key to check for any changes as it is the key which helps you toggle in Laptop

My new logitech keybord


Ariella,
The "A" signifies it as a capital key
The 1 signifies it as a number key
Being a cheaper model it does not have that feature.
Did it come with an installation disk?
Maybe when you install it the cap lock and number lock will be on the computer screen in the system tray.
Some do that.
If not you may want to take it back and get a more expensive one. One, that has the features you like.
