My keyboard isnt working!

I have a Toshiba Satellite A50 which I havent been using for a long time and recently started working with. When I'm booting up i can access the bios settings by pressing esc and then f1 and while in bios i can press a and c. basically my keyboard works fine in bios and before booting up. But after I get into windows the left side of the keyboard doesnt work anymore. The keys include everything left of 6,y, h, n, space bar, and keys near the backspace area.

I tried changing the num lock and the other fn settings but none of them seems to work. I tried changing the settings in the bios but that doesnt seem to work either unless theres a method that i missed. The keys doesnt work regardless if num lock is on or off.

Only thing that worked for me is that when I turn num lock on and hold a and z together, all the keys can be typed and keyboard works normally (aside from having to keep on holding the keys)
I also noticed that when i do this, the light for num lock switches (on to off or if it was off, it turns on).

This problem happens when i install both windows 7 and xp so it shouldn't be the os's problem.

If it helps, the usb keyboard that i plugged in is working fine.

Any advice?

i am no expert but maybe go to toshiba site and see if you can download the driver. i have found on my machine that if a driver is out of date, it won't work properly. JMO.
