My Satellit A45-S151 Power Jack, that the external power cord plugs into, has one of the 3 Male Jack Prongs missing (broken off). What is this part called and can it be replaced? Does it require a trained technician or is this something a novice could do?
This will likely require some soldering, if you are referring to the jack on the dc converter (black box) you should exercise care when opening these there coiuld be hazardous electricity in it even if unplugged. (if it can be opened, many are permanantly glued shut) you can order replacements on ebay relatively cheap, usually $15-30.

You need to use the Toshiba "Power Saver" console. Go to Control Panel -> TOSHIBA power saver. Click the Icon and use the console to adjust the brightness for the various power schemes. If you don't see the TOSHIBA power saver icon, go to Go to Control Panel ->Power Options and open that console. Select "TOSHIBA Power Saver" option in the "Power schemes" dialog box. If you don't have that option in the dialog box, you need to go to the Toshiba site and download the Power Saver installation file and reinstall it.
If it is just one letter then you most likely have a bad keyboard.
Try an external keyboard, if the 'c' is still not working with the external then it's probably some weird software issue. But, if the 'c' is ok on the external you will probably have to replace the keyboard. Replacement keyboard are pretty easy to find on ebay or the web and are usually very easy to replace.
