Hello,

I have a problem with my Toshiba satellite L10-108 laptop keyboard. If think that I might have changed my keyboard settings somehow. My keys are all mixed up. If I for example press the key j in 1 is now pressed. Somehow some of my keys on my keyboard changed. I have no idea how to change it to its original setting.

Please help

Regards

Thank you
It sounds like you have turned on the "NumLock" feature that many laptops have.( j=1 k=2 l=3 u=4 i=5 o=6 m=0) It's intended for use by people who need to enter large amounts of numeric data.

Find the NumLock key and press it to reverse things and set it back to normal. On my Dell it's Fn + F4, on my Compaq it's Fn + ScrLk. It's different on every make and model. But, it's somewhere on the keyboard .

Good Luck

Thank you, xpcman 282

Hey

It worked. Thanks for the help.
Thanks for the information on the fn key and scroll because someone changed the j,k,l, and so on keys so I couldn't figure it out. This has helped me.
