  1. I can't press more than 3 keys at once without the computer ignoring it


    So I'm playing a game and I press s and d to aim at an angle and H Which is my weapon throw key to throw yet nothing happens. I looked it up and it might have to do with the driver can someone help?

    Thanks!

  2. When pressing a 3 it comes up as a t

    I went to remap it in the registry as the numpad 3 with no luck... So i checked the mapping in the registry and pressing the 3 is acknowledged as pressing the t, which makes me believe its a hardware fault.

    Unless there are any other suggestions?

    Booting without press any key

    @dhievm go ahead and list the model number that gives exact specs/info.


    Does it stop right at the Toshiba logo and sit there? Will it sit forever til you press a key, or will it eventually work after so long?
