Qosmio X-70 - keys very often not working in games but fine otherwise

Q: Qosmio X-70 - keys very often not working in games but fine otherwise


When playing any game on this Qosmio X-70 laptop, the keys are often not very responsive and I have to press the keys often multiple times for them to do what they should. Outside of games all keys respond without any problems. It is unfortunately making playing games on a gaming laptop somewhat impossible.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks.

Preferred Solution: Qosmio X-70 - keys very often not working in games but fine otherwise

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Qosmio X-70 - keys very often not working in games but fine otherwise

Very often means not always but sometimes. Correct?
Did you notice the keyboard problem playing just some particular games or all games?
Is this issue noticeable using external keyboard?

I had my laptop 2 years now and never had any problems before but recently some of the keys on my laptop keyborad are not working like fn key, i, e, r, t, y, u, ,i, o, = etc. Curently I am using an external keyborad to overcome this problem. I did a complete reinstall but problem still persits.
Can you please suggest where the problem might be. It is very confusing as some keys are working fine but some are not.


A:Some keys on the keyboard are not working on my Qosmio F60

>Can you please suggest where the problem might be.
In my opinion problem is defective keyboard. As you can see complete OS reinstallation didn?t change anything. It must be hardware related issue.

Sorry but I think keyboard must be replaced.

After a clean install (win 7 home prem), i found most of the drivers, but still have following problems.

1) when i hook up my external hdd or any device to any usb port, although it powers and tries to read, but does not show in my computer and does not work

2) the touch keys (eco, wireless, media buttons) dont work. After installing value added pack, it opens up a button assignment tool and asks me for input for button assignment

3) The reason for clean install was new 250gig SDD to replace my 750gb toshiba hdd. this is the 3rd time hdd has corrupted in 2 years (not happy), however, the ssd halts the laptop as well, and i have to restart

Your help is much appreciated.

A:Qosmio F60 - USB ports & touch keys are not working

Do you have the latest firmware on the SSD?

Have you installed all the drivers and software listed on the Toshiba website? Make sure you install the Intel Chipset utility first, then TVAP second.

Also make sure you have Win7 Service Pack 1 before installing drivers, and update the BIOS to the latest revision.

If you still can't get it working, you can order the Recovery Discs from Toshiba and install the factory image on the SSD so everything works properly.

I've just had my laptop (windows 8.1) repaired with replacement hardware being installed. Something I have noticed that changed for the worse is how the brightness F keys do not respond. The F2 and F3 keys work themselves, but not the special function. It's really odd as the others work fine, such as volume.

I've tried uninstalling/installing two driver packs (I can't remember the names but one was Toshiba Utility Value or something are the other literally had the wording fn or f keys/keyboard in it). This has not worked.

Can someone help troubleshoot this for me? I'm sure when windows 10 comes along it all reset and hopefully work again but it's a very niggling annoyance at the moment.


A:Qosmio X870 - F keys special functions not working

Unisntall the Toshiba Value Added Package because this package isn?t compatible with Win 8.1 system

You need to install the :
Toshiba System Driver for Win 8.1

as well as the
Toshiba Function Key Utility for Win 8.1

Check also all the Win 8.1 64bit drivers available for this series.

I would recommend you to test the different graphic card drivers in case the display brightness would not work properly.

I am using a Qosmio F750 laptop (PQF75A-02Y00Q).

The previous OS installed on the computer was Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. I then upgraded the OS to Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

As expected this change would cause some problems to appear. The thing that's really bugging me right now is that the touch sensitive keys at the top right of the keyboard aren't functioning as intended.

The keys still respond if you touch them but they don't do anything on screen; mostly. When I touch the Volume Up/Volume Down keys, they work as intended. However, the Mute key, the Play/Pause key, the Wifi On/Off key, and the eco Mode key (as well as the toshiba bulletin board key) don't do anything.

Curiously, when I manually turn on eco mode from the power settings the eco mode key still turns green.

My ultimate question is, how do I fix this so that ALL of the keys work as intended?


I noticed that the webcam facial recognition was doing funny things as well but all that needed to be done was recalibrate the setup for that to make it work again.
All of the FN key functions curiously work as well.

As an addition to the bolded question, are there any other drivers I should install to improve/restore functionality to my laptop? Like the ones from the Windows 8 page?

A:Qosmio F750 - Touch-sensitive keys not working after Windows 10 update


I have the same problem since 8.1 update and now after 10 update, further more I have lost the 3d display function since I updated to 8.1.

Hello everyone.

Currently, I live in a college apartment that has internet for the building. Not that many people are here, so I figured it would be okay. Here is a speedtest:

As you can see, it should be decent. It IS decent when I'm browsing the internet..facebook, email, youtube, etc.

It is also fine when I am downloading files.

But when I play games in Steam, it is very slow. When I search for servers, the pings are all 1000+. When I join a game, my ping is 500-600 and it's unplayable cause of how jumpy and choppy I am.

The thing about this is that when I download steam updates/files, it downloads at regular speeds!

How can I fix this? What settings do I look at? I've heard of port forwarding and things like that, but I am not sure exactly what to do.

One huge detail: This very same internet used to run the game fine, as well as World of Warcraft (I haven't tested that game with the internet now since I quit a while back), but there was a huge power out, power went out for 5 days, and now it's running slow.

So anyway, any help would be appreciated. Basically, why are games running super slow when everything else is pretty good?

A:Internet working fine in browsers, but in Steam games? Slow

As the title says, the escape and enter keys do not work in some games. I have just purchased a new laptop and in NFS:Most Wanted and Burnout Paradise (the MENUS), escape does not work. When I am actually in the game, driving I CAN use escape to pause(bring up menu). The enter key however does not work AT ALL in these games.
There was a third game as well (not a driving game), in which they do not work, but I do not remember which one.
I also play a lot of Football Manager 2009, and the escape and enter keys work fine!

It's not a SERIOUS problem as most games allow the use of the mouse to click 'continue' or whatever, but they two keys ARE convenient! So what do I do?

My new laptop is an Acer Aspire 6530 (2,1Ghz Turion, 4GB DDR2, 1GB Radeon)

A:Solved: Escape and Enter keys not working in some games!

Two suggestions ->

1.) Plug in a external KB and see if the problem reproduces.

Since i bought this rig a year ago i haven't been able to play any games that runs on the valve engine(half life 2, css, portal etc) more than a few seconds and then the comp reboots.
With Bf2 i can play max 30 minutes and Bf2142 maybe one hour then they crash exactly the same way as Valve games..
All other games i have tried runs without any problem, even the more demanding such as Crysis, Far Cry 2 and Dark Athena.
This is really anoying since the only game i bother about is BF and CSS.

My comp consist of:

cpu: q6600
gfx: 8800 gt 512mb Point of View
mobo: gigabyte ga-n650sli-ds4
ram: 4gb(2x1gb supertalent02 ddr2 pc2-8900u & 2x1gb dimm ddr2 pc26400u)
psu: 570 watt

Cpu temp is at full load 60c and gpu is at full load 70c, i added an extra fan to the gfx and set the fan to 80%. nothing is overclocked.
I tried with diffrent memorys, changed hdds, reinstalled a bunch of times, reinstalled windows xp 32bit, maybe 10 diffrent nvidia drives, also changed settings for the sound card but none of that made any diffrence.
Havent been able to test with other gfx.

Anyone else hade this issue and manage to solve it then please let me know, also greatful for all suggestions.

Hi all, I have an odd question. My keyboard, a Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 keyboard, isn't registering F1-F2, nor the "at" symbol. It recognizes capital letters, and !#$%^&*()_. At is the only symbol not registering.
Also, I can type the number "2".

The weird part is: Shift+2 works in World of Warcraft. My question is why? DirectInput or something?

If someone can put me in the right direction would be great, I'd love to be able to type again.



AMD Phenom II X4 3.2GHz Processor
6GB DDR2 Memory
Nvidia Geforce GTX 260 Core 216 GPU

A:"At" symbol and F1-F12 keys not working outside of games.. but 2 works.

My suggestion is to try another keyboard and see if those keys work.
Then, try either a USB or a PS2 keyboard (whichever is different from yoru Microsoft keyboard) to see if it's the keyboard controller that's the problem.

I've been doing some online gaming (world of warcraft), and I kept getting these Error#131 issues. This would cause the game files to become corrupted and then I would have to repair, or reinstall. The WoW tech site says that chronic error #131 messages are either a Hard drive, Ram, or Motherboard issue.

Running the Windows Vista memory diagnostic tool has turned up some odd results, the initial test with a 1gb stick in slot #1 and a 1gb stick in slot #2 came back with errors. I then removed the ram from slot 2 and ran the test on slot 1 with 1 stick of ram.... no errors. I did the same with the other stick in slot 1.....no errors. this lead me to believe that it was slot#2 giving me the issue so I moved the ram from slot 2 to slot 3, thus having 1gb of ram in slot 1 and 1gb of ram in slot 3. After a little while......error#131 appeared.

So I then tested both sticks in slots 1 and 3 together and came back with ram errors, I then tested both sticks in slot #1, and then again in slot #2 and both tests came back fine. Any ideas on what this issue could be? I know both sticks are the same brand, speed, totally identical.

A:Ram Works fine in single sticks, not working fine together :P

Hey Everyone

Started typing on my internal laptop keyboard today and reliased that mainly keys a b and n were not working.
So I decided to clean them by taking off the key and white holder, then used a cloth to clean all the dust etc.. both under the rubber button and around it. This still didn't work however, so I then decided to uninstall and reinstall the driver as well. However this didn't work either.

Its probably best to try and buy a new one off e-bay, but before I do this does anyone else have any suggestions?

Also interesting, a b and n seems to be a popular combination of keys for other toshiba laptops that don't seem to be working... (Using a USB keyboard atm to type which works fine)

Hello,Having a problem with my laptop keyboard where the hotkey function buttons have suddenly stopped working as they used to. Pressing any of the hot keys results in an f1-12 rather than the previous function of changing volume, toggling keyboard lights and changing brightness etc. This happened around the time of me installing some new drivers for an audio interface so may be related to that. Ive tried going into the BIOS and toggling the hotkey option on and off, and installing hp quick launch software but nothing has worked so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks in advance - C.

But I got lags.
Then, I tested it without HDMI, and damned, same problem.

My mothercard have been changed on november by Toshiba, I changed also my SDD for a Crucial MX200 Disque Flash SSD Interne 2,5" 1000 Go SATA III - CT1000MX200SSD1 ....

I never played games before all those changes using the battery only, then, I am wondering what can cause those slowing down problem & lags.
Using sector plug, games are running well.

Any ideas ? HWWMonitor shows 7% on battery status.

I have a Commodore Laptop (Argentina) and all the keys that have a FN function attached to them do not work as their normal function any more - this happened after lending the laptop to my kids....

I think it may be FN lock, but can-t find any way to unlock it.

Any ideas please.

Many thanks.

A:Keys that have FN functions on them not working as normal keys

Check the Manual on the model's Support Downloads webpage for key combo to unlock: http://www.ehow.com/how_4968993_unlo...ey-laptop.html

Try updating or reinstalling the hotkeys driver from the model's Support Downloads webpage. Driver Install - Device Manager

While there look also for any downloadable fixes for these key functions or related.

It may also be disabled in msconfig>Startup. You can google the listings there to see what they're for. Normally you only need your AV checked and the rest are freeloaders, but some models require hotkey software to be running at startup if it provides anciliiary functions like backlighting, function toggling, etc.

This has been an ongoing issue.
It's come to the point where I'd actually like to know what's going on for educational purposes.
The games themselves run fine WHILE they run.

Whenever I play a game, it shuts the game down in 1-10 minutes or the computer will shut down. No matter what.
No other application will shutdown. More often than not just the game will shut down.

Troubleshooting I've done.

Cleaned out all parts with compressed air.
Monitored the temp of all components. Gpu not over 60. Cpu not over 75 at any point.
Replaced that graphics card.
Replaced that power supply and tested with 2 OTHER known working psus (Because this screams power issue)
Replaced the ram.
Replaced the OS hard drive and reinstalled the OS clean on a new one. (Issue occurs within Windows 8, XP and Windows 7)
Uninstalled Drivers for my graphics card and installed different ones (After cleaning the drivers out in Safe Mode)
Checked the motherboard for bulging/burst capacitors but it seems fine.
2 memory passes on my ram going through them systematically to make sure all the dimms work.

So it's the Processor or the Motherboard.

Has anyone had an issue like this before? Can anyone give me any tools to better diagnose the health of my CPU or mobo before I give up on this rig and go blow $2000 on another box.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

If not, chances are you turned off a service that was system critical! You have to be very carefull with the services tab. Once you check that box, YOU HAVE TO READ what each service is! Once the Microsoft ones are gone, there will only be 3rd party services left. You can generally turn off ALL of these, but ones for your Internet Security and Anti-Virus will then not function. Once agian, YOU HAVE TO READ what each service is!

For all the more graphically intense games eg: Age of Mythology (offline) , Ijji games, Combat Arms, Maple Story, etc. I've been having some really weird lag spikes that never happened before.

So the game starts off excellent, no lag whatsoever then 5, 10 minutes into the game huge lag spike.

For the fps games the frame isnt frozen just the other people. While my character moves around, a few seconds later people are 20 feet to the left.

Other games (Age of Mythology, Maplestory) is the same except it never really freezes but jumps and its really slow, even though it worked fine for the first few minutes.

I have a Qosmio G50. This morning when I turned it on the screen came on for a second or so, showed the Qosmio logo, then went blank. I spent the morning trying to troubleshoot. I removed the bezel and checked that the wires were not loose.
I attached another screen to the laptop which works fine.

Sometimes the screen will display, so I do not think the problem is the screen itself.
It will show up for a second or so if I close the lid, and then open it up. It will then flicker for a second then go blank.

Also sometimes if I start up with the other screen attached, the laptop screen will display indefinitely.

Anyone have any ideas? It might be the button which turns the screen on and off when the laptop opens / closes, but I do not know where to find that to check.

PS: The profanity filter on this forum is utter garbage. As if I wasn't frustrated enough without having to cut and paste paragraphs from my post trying to isolate some phantom profanity.

Suddenly I can no longer watch movies. Games play, cds play, audio fine. But I put in a movie and it's like there's no disc here. We've watched movies on it for over a year, so I checked multiple movies that once worked. I've followed the troubleshooting, tried to update driver. The wizard could find no better driver than what is already being used. I DO NOT get an error message. I just don't get anything to show up either under My Computer or in Media Center or Media player. This stumps me. I read somewhere "Security Update for Windows Media Player 6.4 (KB925398)" was a problem but I even went to add/remove programs and couldn't find that particular update, so I couldn't uninstall that. I have a gateway with a tsstcorp dvd +_ rw mlti format double layer drive and Windows XP Media Center Edition.
Thanks for any help.

A:dvd movies stopped playing - games, cds fine

I have an HP a1540n desktop with two R/W CD/DVD drives and two megs of RAM. Recently both drives stopped showing or copying DVDs. When I tiried to copy DVDs I get a message that advrcntr2.dll is not on this system.

I went on the internet and downloaded this .dll and put several copies in various media players and on my Desktop. Still no success. What should I do next and what might be causing this problem?

I'll begin by saying how it happened:

My PC used to be filled with junk files and had some viruses that got through my anti-virus and couldn't be cleaned. One of my co-workers suggested I do a factory reset, and while I am an avid gamer, I don't really understand much when it comes to hardware, so I let the IT company I usually go to do the reset.

Prior to the factory reset, I had many games on my PC - Two of them were League of Legends, and the non-steam version of an MMORPG called Wakfu.

After the reset, I redownloaded these games, and once I opened the launchers for either of these two games, my PC screen froze.

I have the Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 3000 with the laser mouse. It seems to work fine for everything but in COD or MOH it stops responding or sticks when i try to walk forward or whatever. I have to let go the key and hit it again. I updated the drivers from M but it didnt help.

Any ideas?

So I have been plagued with a problem that has plagued me ever since I had my processor reseated in hopes of solving a boot-up problem: YouTube videos will consistently cause a BSoD upon even so much as scrolling into them. I thought I solved this problem when I uninstalled then reinstalled Adobe Flash and Shockwave, and I think it did work on browsers, but just now, viewing a Flash video on Steam crashed it.
Meanwhile, a cursory test of the Witcher ran without so much of a flicker. Hey, that rhymes.

I'm highly tempted to just reformat at this point, but half a terabyte would definitely not fit on a DVD, so I'm turning to the forum for advice.
EDIT: I might be jittery from the nasty surprise, but I think browser YouTube is causing it to stutter... No, the video itself seems to be stuttering...

On Sunday (Feb.24/2019) everything was working fine, games, music, you name it. I turned my computer off and didn't touch it until Wednesday (Feb.27/2019). I turned it on, everything went fine, I started up Itunes and tried to play a song and I heard these sort of digital blips, it's hard to explain, I heard them for a milisecond each and my music wouldn't play. So I closed Itunes and reopened it and music played, I didn't think much of it.

Eventually I opened Twitch and was watching a stream and it was fine but then I started up Anthem and once it got to the first loading screen with sound I heard 3, 1 second long digital error sounds, each a different tone, and no more sound after that. I also noticed that the Twitch stream I was watching stopped showing video at the same time, there was some error on the page. Anthem loaded normally and once it got to the main screen I refreshed the stream and it was fine, sound included, but no sound on Anthem.

Restarting Origin and any games, and even my computer, didn't fix it, eventually I noticed when I would switch my sound output from Speakers to Headphones I had sound with Itunes AND the Origin games in my headphones, but once I switch back to speakers the sound stops.

The only sound outputs I have are Speakers (default device) and Logitech Headphones. Here is the dxdiag:

Hey guys, this is a long shot but here goes.

For a long time now i have had a few issues with my internet when it comes to just a few specific applications. My Discord chat app only works 50% of the time, the rest of the time, I, aswell as everyone else in the server, sound like robots and it is impossible to use. Dota 2 - works 75% of the time, get random insane lag spikes for 30 minutes at a time where i have literally got 15 seconds delay. Counter strike CSGO - again works perfectly, except, i get randomly disconnected from the server every 20 mins. The reason im writing here is because this problem seems like its something specific, with all the above examples, every single other aspect of my internet is working perfectly fine at the time the issues are happening - the speed is at a constant 52 mb/s dl and 10 mb/s upload. Can download anything very fast, can browse any website or load any video etc etc. Any ideas what it could be?? It happens whether i am plugged in via router or directly plugged into the socket!!
