The keyboard is bad. You can test this by connecting an external USB keyboard and seeing if you can type normally with it.

You'll need to replace the keyboard to correct this. Doing so isn't very hard, or expensive, but you need to take great care when disconnecting the ribbon cable from the connector on the motherboard. If you break the connector, you'll need to replace the entire motherboard.

You didn't mention the model number of your laptop - but you can usually find easy to follow instructions, and parts, by Google search for "<my laptop make and model> keyboard replacement"

Do you see any of the power indicators on the laptop? Do you hear the hard drive churning at all? If none of the above, is your power supply okay? Your batteries charged?

Give us some more information and perhaps we can help further.

SOURCE: I am unable to type

You can either contact the manufacturer of you notebook and request a replacement keyboard, or you can use a USB keyboard instead.

SOURCE: l have a toshiba satellite

You might be able to adjust the volume further from the control panel.

In windows xp click "start" and then select "control panel" Next click sounds, speach, & audio devices next to a speaker icon. Then click the "sounds and audio devices"

you should be able to adjust the volume there as well as a volume control on the front or side of your laptop.

good luck

SOURCE: the letter L key is not working

You have a faulty keyboard. Need to change the whole keyboard since you cannot change just only one letter key.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

I can`t use an external monitor connected by VGA port for my Toshiba Satellite M55 S331. I need to know if the port is damaged?


The M55 series does not output to external VGA automatically. You can either go into Setup (press F2 when computer is starting) or use FN F5 in Windows to toggle between LCD, monitor, or simultaneous output.

The monitor port should be standard, so as long as the plug on your monitor doesn't have any bent pins, it should work.

Hi,
Here is the RAM specs for your notebook:
Installed size: 512Mb / 2Gb max Technology: DDR SDRAM 333MHz, PC2700
According to this specs you can reach 2Gb max so you won't have problems with 1Gb... just be sure you use the same technology
cheers
