Satellite Pro P300 Numeric keyboard at same time as alphabetic keyboard?

Q: Satellite Pro P300 Numeric keyboard at same time as alphabetic keyboard?

Hello,

I'm new here, and english isn't my mother tongue, then, please be indulgent ;-)

I have a problem with my numeric keyboard.
It is not possible to make it work in the same time as the alphabetic keyboard.

When I press numlock to make it work, it also change the alphabetic keyboard in numeric.

Example : numlock on uiojklnm, = 456123n0,

I have a QWERTZ keyboard.

Thanks for your help
cheers

Hey guys,

I was wondering if you knew of any places where I could get a set of keys for the keyboard (as opposed to buying a new keyboard) and if possible; where I can get sets of keys for different keyboard layouts, such as AZERTY for example.

Many thanks in advance, Owen.

A:Satellite Pro P300-1AY - Where can I get new keyboard parts?

Hi buddy,

You can only order a new keyboard and such single keys that you mean can?t be ordered. If some single keys don?t work you have to buy a new keyboard but as far as I know it isn?t so expensive.

Just contact the authorized service provider in your country and ask for that. There you can get a new keyboard. :)

Satellite Pro P300 1AY

Firstly and most importantly, I suspect the backlight may have gone in my laptop screen.
If, for example, it's just something simple like a loose connection, is this an easy fix?

Otherwise, any idea how much it would cost for a replacement?

Secondly, I"m thinking of switching to a different keyboard layout.
Does anyone know where I can find a Belgian AZERTY keyboard for this laptop?

> Firstly and most importantly, I suspect the backlight may have gone in my laptop screen.

Hmm?. maybe it?s a FL inverter. The FL inverter is a small part which controls the display backlight?
Usually notebook disassembling procedure is very tricky and it sounds like you have never disassembled the notebook? so I would not recommend doing anything what could damage other parts? Get in contact with an local ASP and ask for the assistance.
Usually the FL inverter should not be expensive parts but I have no idea about the costs?

?and again? all spare parts can be ordered from local ASP.

When I engage NUM LOCK the keys on the right of the main keyboard also become number keys as well as on the numeric keypad on the right.
I've tried pressing Fn and NUM LOCK at the same time like on a non extended keyboard but this makes no difference.

I've also tried different input languages and keyboard styles.
I can't test with an external keyboard because I don't have one. I've downgraded from vista to XP.
I don't know if this made a difference because I didn't notice this until after the downgrade.

Any ideas?

A:Re: Satellite P300-276: keys on right of keyboard become numbers when NUM LOCK

Hi

Sorry but I think I don?t understand your issue?
Fact is that if the NUM LOCK is enabled (FN +F11) then the buttons; U, I, O, J, K, L and M become to numbers:
U to 4
I to 5
O to 6
J to 1
K to 2
L to 3
M to 0

If you would press FN + F11 again then the buttons should be set back to letters...

Hi,

I've been trying to get an external keyboard (USB) to work with my Z830 running Win 7 (64 bit). I've tried three different USB keyboards into different ports and also a wireless keyboard.

The keyboard itself works fine but I can't get the numeric keypad to the right of the keyboard to work.
It allows me to move around the screen ie when the numlock is off but when the numlock is on it doesn't do anything.

I've looked in the bios and changed the settings relating to legact devices and also the numlock option but to no avail. The numeric keypads on the keyboards have worked on other machines.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Satellite Z830 - Numeric keypad on external keyboard won't work

Hi

I?m not quite sure about that but my assumption is KBC code is missing in BIOS.
The Satellite/Portege Z830 keyboard does not support the numeric keypad so possibly this is the reason why the numeric keypad on external keyboard cannot be activated.

Hello Everyone,

My problem started after updating windows 8.1 to windows 10, of course!
First the touchpad just stopped working, for no reason.

My solution was to uninstall the drive and restart the laptop. And from time to time I had to do this proceed. Two weeks ago windows updated, and the touchpad issue's gone. . Unfortunately, another one appeared.

The feature "mousekey", which is turn it on at ease access to use the numeric keys to use them as a mouse, It's turning itself on. And doesn't matter how many times I turn it off, few seconds and it's on again.

I've tried uninstalling the drive, which after windows the last updating was "ELAN".

Then I replaced by the Toshiba drivers, which is "Synaptic", and uninstalled the drives ,the problem is the same. Because of that, I can't use my numeric key, which is annoying!! If anyone can come up with something I will be grateful.

Hi all. I'm confused. How do you do ALT codes without the numeric keypad? I mean the Fn key is there, but then what? I have since found that you can insert them via the on screen touch keyboard, but surely you can still do this on the keyboard right? What I want to type is which is usually Fn + ALT + 130. I contacted HP support who had no idea what-so-ever. I've done a search of the site and couldn't find anything either. Anyone got any answers? Thanks, Pony

Hello Pony, I don't have an answer to make the keyboard create a numpad but I read about adding Scripts to turn certain keys into the numpad. I have not used those.I do use a work around that will hopefully help a little. Turn on the On Screen Keyboard.Type in the Search bar Run and select it.Type the letters OSK and hit Enter.When the keyboard opens, click on Options.  When the dialog box opens, tick the box for Turn on Numeric Keypad.Hit OK.  Select the Numlock key on the on screen keyboard to show the numpad.One the physical keyboard, hold the Alt key down and click on 0233 of the On Screen Numpad.( I just use the Alt key shortcuts rather than Fn+Alt. Its just easier)   Hope that helps.

Hi I have a problem with an Advent Laptop 7113 running Vista.

I loaned this spare laptop to my 36 year old son whilst his Dell was away being repaired, now he has returned the laptop back to me with what to me seems to be an unusual problem: the numeric lock is permanently on, most of the toggles, F pads, enter and scroll are not functioning. It is impossible to get into the bios via F2 as this is also not functioning. I note that during the boot the numeric lock is off, and only comes on when current user is selected for windows. I have been into regedit, current user, control panel and keyboard and the keyboard setting is set to 2, and I have then reset it to 0, however when the machine is rebooted and you go back via regedit to check the setting for the current user, the keyboard has reset itself every time to 2!!!

I have also gone to default under regedit default, control panel, keyboard, and reset the default from the long numeric string to 0, and this remains constant, however, when I try to log back on as my normal password and current user, the numeric via Regedit is seen to have reset itself again to 2!

The entire keyboard was replaced about 5 months ago as it had a broken key pad.
I suppose the moral of the story is to not loan spare machines to sons, who seem to treat laptops like mobile phones: i.e. little respect and throw them all around the room!
I should also add that the combination Fn Numeric is also not functioning.

Hi. I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite Click 2 Pro and at the top, two of the keys increase/decrease the screen brightness (much like two of the keys at the top of a Mac do the same). Well, I discovered that if I press the key to decrease the screen brightness too quickly and bring it down all the way to the lowest brightness and keep clicking, it turns off the keyboard! As in, none of the keyboard keys will work anymore.
 
The only way I know of to fix it is to restart the keyboard. I'm wondering if there's a way to 1) disable the fact that it does this, and 2) find a way to turn the keyboard back on without restarting the computer, since it is, quite frankly, annoying when I have three word documents and about 10 browser tabs open. I can't figure out how to disable/stop this one key by using the keyboard settings/ toggling the hotkeys/etc.
Honestly, I'm not even sure if this is a Windows 8 issue or Toshiba issue. Has anyone else had this problem?

A:Keyboard shortcut locks up keyboard (Toshiba Satellite)

If under warranty, return this to the store ASAP for replacement/repair. There's not much we can recommend you do, hardware-wise, that you can do and not void the warranty.
 
I suspect the keyboard may be sticking,,, you can try another USB KB for troubleshooting though. Plug in the USB KB and see if that behavior is duplicated using that KB.

I've seen other keyboard problems on the threads but none of them seem to match mine!

I have had this computer since January and am having trouble with the keyboard already. The main problem is the left arrow key - it works when I press it on the left-hand side but not if I press the other side of the key.

I also have a feeling the other keys don't always work as well as they should - sometimes I know that I pressed a key but the letter doesn't show up. This is just random and sporadic as far as I can tell (whereas the arrow key problem is consistent).

I would be grateful if anyone had any advice about this problem and whether it means getting a new keyboard or whether it can be easily fixed.

Thank you!

It has not been used much as it as ben connected to a separate keyboard, it has not been misused or neglected but I have been advised by customer support that they will most likely want to make a charge for the repair of ?100 if you include labour delivery an VAT !

You can get such part from local Toshiba authorized service provider in your country.
But the notebook was equipped with a A4+10key standard tile black keyboard with backlight

If the ASP isn’t a option for you, probably you would get such keyboard also from some independent online dealers
Ask google ans search using the terms: Satellite S70-A keyboard

Hi all,

I used my laptop last night, and everything was working OK. Today, when I power up I am unable even to log on as the only key on the keyboard that's responding is the 'i' key. I have a USB keyboard, but the effect is the same whether I try typing my password on the USB keyboard or on the native built-in keyboard. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Fingers crossed not a deadly virus.

Thanks

Hello,

I just bought this new Satellite Pro.

I have installed all the drivers and updated the bios to last version, but I always have the same problem: when I write, a lot of times my keyboard writes double letters (for example, every ten words the keyboard writes a double letter, like "keybboard").

I tried also to change the keyboard properties from the control panel of Windows 8, but nothing has changed.

I called the support, but they just told me that I have to bring my laptop in an assistence center: but I need my new computer for work, and I wouldn't be happy to lose it for at least 4 weeks!

And moreover, the support told me that, if the laptop has no hardware problem, I would have to pay for the assistence..
.
So, this is my first and unlucy experience in the Toshiba world...
There's somebody who can give me some tips for solving this problem?
Maybe this is a common problem on new laptops and somebody knows how to fix it?

Thank you very much!

A:Keyboard problems on Satellite Pro C50-A-1L6

I have very bad news.

I bought same computer and for the last 3 months I have been in a battle with Toshiba Spain Technical Center, without any result.

They have taken my computer 5 times to service center !!!!!! they always say that it is repaired but the problem still remains. Plus they never explain me what they have done and not done !

I have noticed that this problem only happens on people that knows how to use all fingers while writting! do you?
It has never happened to me in any other computer or laptop, but only on this Toshiba.

And Toshiba Spain just tells me to keep send it back to Service Center... for what? problably for nothing, just to keep playing with me.

I have requested to change my laptop for another one, or my money back...waste of my time.

Please keep me posted.

My laptop keyboard has suddenly stopped working, it doesnt charge when plugged in and doesnt do anything when i try to use it or the mouse. I had an error come up when i try to put my password in using the keyboard when turning it on and seems to happen every time i try to do the same but if i use the on screen keyboard it turns on fine. Its a blue screen that says pc has ran into a problem and needs to restart, error code, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
I cant figure it out. When on charge it says my tablet part is 100% and the keyboard says 30% plugged in but not charging.
Please someone tell me this has happened to them and can help me! I dont want to lose anything on my laptop but cant cope with it how its running!
Thanks
