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.

Toshiba Laptop left click stopped wokring?


1) Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.

  • 2) Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
  • 3) Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked.

    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,

    http://www.zkarlo.com/selected-zkarlo-part/power-board-p3326.php

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

    http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

    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,

    http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

    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.

    Touchpad not funjctioning on Toshiba Satellite L40/45 laptop


    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.
    Change the settings if necessary.
