Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 non-numeric keys locked

\015 My Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 laptop has a problem where only the keys that double as a function key (the number pad keys, etc.) type characters and all others do not. At first it seemed like the num-lock was on, but when I pressed "Fn-F11" for the first time, these keys now type their normal characters but all the other keys that do not double as function keys still type nothing. To make matters worse, pressing the "Fn-F11" does not change it back to num-lock mode. I tried "Fn-F10" and other function keys a few times, but nothing seems to change it. I then rebooted the machine. When I started typing from left-to-right across the keyboard starting with "Q-W-E-R-T-Y..." all the letters typed a character in notepad except for 'Q'. But after 'P', the '[' key produced a Tab character and things went back as before where only the keys that double as Function keys typed something and all the others do not. A second reboot now kept things this way; I couldn't get the other get the other keys to type anymore. Some of the keys that do type type their character (e.g., 'J' types 'j', 'K' types 'k', etc.) but some type something else that isn't printed on the key itself (neither the character nor the Function value printer on the key itself). I don't believe that the hardware is broken because I was able to get typed keystrokes from the keys in the top row except for the 'Q' for a moment after the first reboot. Also the fact that exactly the keys that double as function keys are active and the rest aren't lead me to believe that some setting is forcing the "Fn" key to be locked or something like that. Please help if you have any experience with this issue.\015
