Toshiba L775 Laptop FN key keyboard issue after Win10 upgrade and Windows Updates Applied
Process of elimination leads me to believe that the Toshiba Hotkey Driver update installed by Windows Update breaks certain key mappings. Unfortunately it is not possible to uninstall the update. The only option is to disable the four relevant entries in Device Manager > Human Interface Devices but it doesn't fix the keyboard mapping issues. If you Uninstall using Device Manager the entries reinstall after a reboot.

To insert a ! or " or £ or $ then you have to press FN+SHIFT+required key.

This laptop is not on the Toshiba authorised list of laptops compatible with Win10 however everything works perfectly with out this update.
As a side note there is no BIOS setting to change FN Key functionality and there is no key combination e.g. FN+F11 or FN+NumLock to toggle the functionality. Basically the FN key is ON by default when it should be off!
