    is it showing differeent symbols at all

    some laptops have numlock
    then P = *
    L = 3
    k = 2

    the keys for numlock are

    i o p j k l ; m . / delete

    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
