The letter l is not working on Toshiba Satellite r25-s3503, running xp

Last nite the letter l on my r25 laptop stopped working. it's ony working now when i copy/paste an l in, or use the tablet keyboard...very annoying. i tried to reinstall the keyboard driver, and then used system restore...checked on the keypboard in the control panel, says it's working fine.

when i first turn on computer and open wordpad, i can type one l, first then no more. all other letters and numbers work fine, so it doesn't seem to be that the l can't work, as it will work once, so it doesn't seem like the keyboard itself is totally at fault.

hep! i don't want to buy another aptop because of one etter....yes i omitted the l's in that sentence for emphasis

thanks

    Well, i fixed it.... for anyone who may have this problem...

    i just went to the device driver, right clicked on the keyboard, and unistalled it. i restarted, and so far so good... no more letter l problem. didn't need to reinstall a keyboard driver either, it did it itself i guess. found the answer thru the keyboard trouble shooter even that windows offers...surprise there.

How to open Toshiba R25 Series Keyboard


t isn't that bad... The top strip comes right off if you pull up per the M400 manual. Unscrew the two keyboard screws and pull the keyboard (slowly) toward the monitor to give you some slack in the ribbon cable. Then fold the keyboard back over the touchpad. Unscrew the two screws holding down the metal panel in the middle where the keyboard is (be careful - they were very tight for me and I stripped one of the screws).

Put in your DDR2 4200 memory and be off and away...

Battery life greatly reduced after switch from vista to xp


your power plan might be changed since installing xp, click controll panel > hardware and sound > power options, you should see different power plans with check boxes, balanced is the default choice but if your battery is old you might want to use power saver

Trouble is that you will need a computer to find the manual.. Off to the library or a friends house, then google Toshibas support site..

In the meantime.. try it WITHOUT your laptop battery.
