    After my old Compaq went terminal a kind neighbor "gifted" me with an older Toshiba Laptop Satellite A15-S157.
    I need to type German umlauts and characters on this laptop for continued contact with German extended family.
    On my old Compaq keyboard (outbd, of course), I had the "Numlock ON plus ALT and a bunch of numbers to type in the umlauts, etc! This DOES NOT WORK with the A15 however? I also tried the Character map via Accesories - Tool route, but that also doesn't provide the necessary umlauts etc? Anyone got any info on this? Toshiba maze of "SUPPORT?" doesn't help at all!
