Can not use numeric keypad on p505D num lock light is always on by number keys do not work

The numeric key pad does not function at all.  Anyone have any ideas.  Num lock light is always on and will not go off if the num lock key is pressed.  Only the ENTER key in this area functions.

I'm having the same problem with my Toshiba Satelitte. I'm figuring the numbers got disabled somehow, but I caan't figure it out.

All of  the number keys seem to be mapped to nthe F3 function key.  If I press FN and then any of the numeric keys the F3 function appears.

 

Any idea how to remapp the keyboard?

Glad to know it worked for you... wonder how it happened in the first place.

Just for the record, that procedure will fix a LOT of problems on a computer and is well worth trying when things are acting correctly.

Removing the battery (and unplugging from the wall) for thirty minutes also worked for my P500-ST6821.  Now if I can just figure out why I get sporadic BSODs from sdbus.sys - but that's a post for a different thread.

I tried the fix but it didn't work!  I am so frustrated!  I have a Satellite A505-S6960.  I use the numeric pad all the time.  Any other ideas?
