I know this sounds crazy, buy if your keyboard is NOT a wireless, you can clean it by running it through the dishwasher. It works great. Do not do this with a wireless. Otherwise try a spray can of air from a retail store.

I would try cleaning your keyboard. If you are gentle you can remove the F10 key and check that they is no dirt underneath. Check other keys near the F10 key in case others have the same problem. I know that a sugary Cola spillage on a keyboard really sticks things up. In that case it was easiest to get a new keyboard.

Have a Toshiba Satellite L505. My key was sticking, so I removed it. Under the A key are two smaller plastic pieces. Now I can't figure out how to reattach the key. Thanks!


LOL, it's much easier to just replace the keyboard. You can spend hours trying to get that key back on even if it can be put back on. You might have broken one of the little plastic catches.

My computer is automaticlly turning down the volume and the Quick launch button for turning down the volume is flashing, as if you're pressing it.


Hi there,

it sounds as though the quick launch button is stuck down, have a look around the button to see if there is a build up of anydirt around the button which is causing it to stick, if you can get a pin down the edge of the button you may be able to gently lever it up so it no longer being activated.

Hope this helps

Loud repeating beeps?
Indicative of a stuck key on your keyboard. Try seeing if the keys all "bounce back" after being pressed. If they stick, get a can of compressed air and gently blow it under the keys. If that fails, try with an external keyboard, see if that works, if it does, then you may need to have the laptop dismantled to clean/ replace the keyboard

Keyboard sticking


Hello, A sticky keyboard can sometimes be fixed by removing the key as you've done, but sometime the trouble lies deeper in the keyboard. There are small contacts that can wear out or get built up with a surface film. Might be time to replace the whole keyboard. It's not that hard if you have the aptitude and they do come out and go in as a complete unit. Cost for a new one can be from $20 - 50. Try looking on ebay & the link below.
Good luck, mpawlak908

Keyboard sticks


Hello...
Looks like you need to clean the keyboard. It maybe a dust or something that's stuck in there, too. Get a clean, dry paintbrush and you clean the key as if to take away the dust (I do it, too). Do not open your laptop unless you know how to do it. Hope this helps... :)
