Number keys don't work right above letters on keyboard


You have to hold the Fn key, usually blue in the lower left corner of keyboard, for the numbers above the letters to work.

Good Luck,

On my Toshiba Satellite Laptop I have opened and started the computer but can't get past the sign in window because my enter key and space bar won't respond. I can type letters but can not enter...


> hardware problem or software or keyboard?

Experiment #1: turn the computer off. Connect a USB keyboard. Turn the computer on. Use that keyboard to try the 'TAB' key (to move from field-to-field). If TAB works, then try using the SPACE or ENTER keys.

Experiment #2: turn the computer off. Turn the computer on, and look for the message:

PRESS <blah> to ENTER BIOS SETUP

When you see the message, press the <blah> key. On the BIOS SETUP menus, try the ENTER key to "select" a field, to prove that the ENTER key works fine.

Experiment #3: Turn the computer off. Disconnect the AC power. Remove the battery.
Remove the disk-drive. Take the original CD/DVD disk, and start to install Windows to the disk-drive. As you work through the installation screens, you'll need to press ENTER at least once,
if only to acknowledge that installation cannot proceed, because the disk-drive is not connected.
If the ENTER key works, it works.

Experiment #4: Like #3, but connect a different, empty, disk-drive, and reinstall Windows.
If it completes, then your "original" setup has a SOFTWARE problem.

The enter key on my 9-month-old Acer netbook has stopped working. I'm running a full scan as I type this and I've upgraded to Firefox 4 with no success. Is the key just worn out or is it a software...


This is likely a hardware problem, and not related to any of your software.

Keyboards take a lot of abuse and can wear out or get jammed. Crumbs from food, or dust, etc can also get lodged under the key. Fortunately the keys are removable, but you must be careful when removing them from the laptop (the plastic pins that hold them are delicate).

Using a table knife, slide it under the edge of the Enter key. Twist the knife a little to lift up one end. Twist gently until you hear a click as it comes loose. Be gentle and proceed slowly. Some Enter keys have two clips, so you may need to pry up the other end of the key too. Some keys also have a thin metal bar/wire. Notice how this hooks up, because you'll need to put it back together this way.

Look for any hair, crumbs or other items in the space under the key. Also, make sure the plastic/rubber spring-pad is working properly by pushing down on it. If you push on the spring-pad with a pencil (erase end), does the enter key work (open up Notepad or Word while you test this).

If yes, try putting the key back on the way it was. Hopefully everything should work now. If not, make sure you clicked it back in all the way, and that it is seated properly.

If it still doesn't work, there may be other problems with the key, and the best bet is to have a qualified technician take look. Take your system to wherever you bought it, or Best Buy for service.

Hi . Please could you explain for me , I have formatted my netbook, and then the keyboard that I use on the netbook not works correctly. Left side of the keyboard works properly, right side doesn`t works...


The numlock must be ON - just press function key and Numlock key (Both must be in same colour - maybe Blue) and the keys should work - If the problem is solved then enter the BIOS setup and reset the Power on Numlock to OFF so that it will be off any time you start the windows.

The left bottom corner of my keyboard wont type and the password involves those letters! idk what might have happened, i wasnt home at the time but came home to, 'oh its not typing right?' nice. please...


I'll wager a wild guess. If I'm wrong, please don't enter ANY thumbs up because you don't include your model#, computer model#......ZIP.

You have children or a pet.

Immediately, using the the model number of your keyboard/laptop...whatever, get on ebay, get a replacement. Or repost here with helpful info.

In the meantime DO NOT leave me any feed back thumbs up unless it's 3 or 4. I'd rather have nothing. I was kind when you needed help and left me nowhere to go. And for free.

Regards,

My toshiba has the #5 key stuck.. when ever i turn the computer it fills out all spaces with number 5. i have rebooted several times and issue persists. wt can i do? by the way i have a toshiba prodigy...


The plunger that is under the key pad has become wedged, this might be a piece of debreis that has gotten caught under the key pad. Try taking compressed air and using short bursts, blow air under the pad to try and dislodge the jamb. If this does not work, there maybe physical damage to the pad and plunger. New replacement keyboards are under 25 bucks on Ebay, Put in your make and model and look up a new one. Come back on here and we will give you a link to the disassembly manual or advise you here how to change out the board.
