Toshiba Equium Laptop Keyboard Problem

\015 I have a problem with certain keys on this laptop.\015\012\015\012When I strike the z Fn / or arrow keys a signal is sent to the laptop which appears different from the key itself.\015\012\015\012It locks up the keyboard thereafter because it thinks the key(s) are depressed.\015\012\015\012I have traced the foregoing with a keyboard test software application from passmark software.com. It's shareware on trial for 30 days.\015\012\015\012According to the diagnostic software, striking one key shows the other offending keys perm. locked in the depressed position, sending signals. But they have not physically been touched.\015\012\015\012Oddly, pressing the A key and then the Z key together (in that order) released the jamming.\015\012\015\012I've already tried uninstalling the keyboard driver and I've run a complete AVG anti-virus test - all clear. It's XP and all updates are in place.\015\012\015\012What next - can you help?\015

\015\012I did this all with a USB keyboard and mouse by the way.
\015\012
\015\012OK, so now that I can actually use them, I start to test out the touchpad and keyboard and had the same problem all you lot did. I looked at the keys which were giving me greif and saw that they are all keys that had alternate settings when used with the function (fn) key. Turns out that there was a fn lock on the keyboard which I cleared by holding the fn key and pressing f11. This turned off a little LED just above the "9" key and voila, working laptop again.
\015\012
\015\012To test if this is the problem with your laptop, press and hold down the "fn" key and press any of the keys which are coming up incorrectly. If while holding it down (cancelling out the lock, like how shift and caps lock work) the correct character appears on screen, then you too are suffering from funct-itis (tm)
Replace the keyboard. It is not an expenseve repair as they are available on auction sites for about 20 to 30 bucks.
