You can order a new top plate from EBay or Toshiba and replace it yourself or have it done professionally. The button itself it most likely fine, however the plastic that holds the plastic button over the actuator is broken and is actually fairly common occurrence.

My niece clicked random buttons on my keyboard and now my left-click does not work. What can I do to fix this issue?

If all other touchpad functions work, then my guess is that the left click key is broken. The only thing that "random key pressing" might do on a laptop is to activate the touchpad disable in which case NONE of the touchpad functions would work.

Laptop keyboard mouse not working

Toshiba has released a few different advisories related to its Satellite line of laptop computers having keyboard problems. Remember that damage caused by liquid or physical damage is not usually covered by warranty.

Bios Fixes
On Satellite models 1955-S801, 1955-S802, 1955-S803 and 1955-S804, the BIOS (system utility setup program) had trouble reading the firmware for the wireless keyboard. BIOS version 1.40 repaired this problem. The BIOS flash program can be downloaded from the Toshiba website. b> Satellite 1955 Text Anomaly b> Toshiba reported a strange, software-specific problem between the Satellite 1955-S801 and S803 computers and Microsoft Word and Excel. Users who held down the shift key for more than five seconds while using the arrow keys would see their highlighted text disappear. The only provided solution was to use an external keyboard attached with a PS/2 connection or to release the shift key if pausing while highlighting in those programs. General Troubleshooting for Satellite Keyboards b> For general concerns about the keyboard -- if it doesn't appear to be working -- try these few steps. Use the keyboard before Windows loads: hit F1 on the first screen that appears after turning the system on. If they keyboard works here, it's probably a Windows problem. Try attaching an external keyboard; if it works, the internal keyboard is likely broken.
Toshiba Laptop Mouse Problems
Some symptoms that occur with Toshiba laptop mice include jumping and vanishing pointers. These situations have occurred after software upgrades have been made. The problems can often be solved by following basic mouse troubleshooting methods. Overall, Toshiba laptop mice contain the basic functions characteristic of the USB variety.

Function b> The mouse device is used to move, open, delete and otherwise connect with items available on and through the computer monitor. In Toshiba laptops and many others, the mouse pad replaces the point and click USB mouse device. This enables the mobile computer laptop to be more compact, portable and ready to use. b> Features b> The mouse pad on a Toshiba laptop is located in the middle, directly below the keyboard. The control buttons, both primary and secondary are situated below it. The primary key, on the left, represents the left-click button on an USB mouse device. The secondary key on the right represents the right-click button on an USB mouse. This button is used to pull up the short menu of an item after selecting it. Update Keyboard Driver b> Many Toshiba mouse issues can be solved by updating the driver. The driver enables the mouse to function properly. Update the keyboard driver first to increase mouse and keyboard device compatibility. To complete this task, click "Administrative Tools," accessible from the Start menu. Next, click "Computer Management," and then select "Device Manager." Click the "Keyboards" expansion node to bring up the list of installed hardware, and then right-click on the keyboard that is in use. If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties," go the "Driver" tab and press "Update Driver." Device Manager is a useful tool to update, rollback or uninstall incompatible drivers. b> Update the Mouse Driver b> Update the mouse driver by following most of the instructions in the above section, "Update Keyboard Driver." However, after selecting "Device Manager," click the expansion node next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Select the current mouse device in use and right-click on it. If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties" and go to the Driver tab and press "Update Driver." b> Check BIOS Fixes b> Some older Toshiba laptop models require BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) fixes. Most of the downloads are available from their website. Since, the BIOS chip is the liaison between the hardware and software, any issues should be addressed promptly. Symptoms, such as erratic mouse behavior or the pointer disappearing, are signs of a need for a BIOS fix or driver update. b> Compatibility b> Toshiba and most Microsoft Windows products are compatible. This is vital when it comes to updating necessary drivers needed for continual operating system function. The service packs they approve of are listed on their website. Hope this helps.

    Computer will not turn on

    Toshiba Satellite PSAFGU-00L002 is also known as Toshiba Satellite A215-S7437.

    Power Button Board, for the Toshiba Satellite A215 series of Notebook PC's,

    The A215 series is just a fancier version of the A200 main series.
    This is a pictorial disassembly guide for the A200/A205 series,

    Follow Steps 1 through 17. You can click on any photo to enlarge.

    1) Remove ALL power to the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

    2) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

    If no multi-compartment container is available, you can substitute with a clean egg carton.
    Label each egg holder.

    SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws. DO NOT mix them up.

    3) Follow Anti-Static Precautions.

    Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

    It would be best to buy, and wear an ESD wrist str-ap, and have the alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
    (I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case)

    {Electro Static Discharge. One example of an ESD wrist str-ap, }

    This is a link to a free Service Manual, for the Toshiba Satellite A215 series of Notebook PC's,

    Scroll down a little to the subheading - Satellite A10. (A10 is in blue)
    Scroll over, and click on the blue - A215

    The service manual is in PDF file form. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
    After you click on the file name { A215 } it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

    The page number box is at the top of the PDF file, to the right of the Down Arrow. The Zoom In, and Zoom Out icons, for viewing size, are to the right.
    ( +/- )

    The Bookmarks Menu is to the left.
    Page 179 starts the replacement procedure for the Function Button Board.

    In the Bookmarks menu it is;
    A) Left-click on the + sign to the left of - Chapter 4 Replacement Procedures
    B) Scroll down, left-click on 4.20 Function Button Board

    Display Assembly, Strip Cover above Keyboard, Keyboard, and Top Cover, need to be removed in order to access, and replace the Function Button Board.

    You can click on each individual area, Keyboard (Page 152), and Display Assembly (Page 155)
    Removal of the Top Cover is covered in Display Assembly.

    From your diagnoses of the problem, I also concur with Function Button Board replacement. (Power Button Board)

    Would appreciate if you would post back with your findings, in a Comment.

    You might have inadvertedly disabled the touchpad.

    1. Press Fn + F9 to enable the touchpad.
    This key combination acts as a switch, enabling or disabling the touchpad: press once to enable (if it is disabled), then press again to disable.

    2. If the touchpad still doesn't respond, check the settings in the mouse control utility.
    Click on the touchpad icon on the right side of the task bar if you see one or click Start button/Settings/Control Panel, select the Mouse icon and Press Enter.
