Locked space bar and FN key

I have a Toshiba laptop with windows 10 OPS. The space bar and the FN key will not function. How do I unlock them?

Re: Locked space bar and FN key

That sounds like a hardware problem. Have you tried a USB keyboard?

I have not tried an external keyboard yet. All the other keys work fine you just cannot put any space between words when attempting to respond to messages in word or emails.

It seems likely to me that those two keys have simply stopped working. If you test with a USB keyboard you can find out.

If the built in keyboard turns out to be faulty you can probably get a replacement from eBay, or take it into a computer shop to fix.
