should be a numlock

I have two toshiba's
1 is a equium and 1 a satallite

the equium is a function key and F11 for numlock
it has numlk written under the F11 key
Hold the Function key (FN) and F11

the satallite it has a symbol and a light under it
if you hit function key (FN) and F11 the light comes on and used the numbers instead of PKJ etc

maybe worth a try
