You need to uninstall the keyboard drivers to solve this.

Please perform the following steps to get in to device manager.
1. Press "Windows" key and 'R" simultaneously to open the command window.
2. In the open dialog box type 'devmgmt.msc' and hit Enter.
3. A Window with the name 'Device Manager' opens.
4. Click on + sign beside the keyboard entry and a list of devices are shown.
5. Right click on the device and select uninstall.
6. Restart the computer.

The drivers are automatically installed from the Operating System after you restart the computer.

If the issue is still there, then enter into BIOS page by pressing F10 key or F2 key on the keyboard when you restart the computer.

In this page select restore all the settings to default. Save and exit.

This will fix the issue.

You better check first if it is the keyboard on your netbook is the problem.
Below is the steps that you can use:

You need to use external keyboard ( typical keyboard usually use for desktop PC ). plug the external keyboard to the port where you can plug the cord of the external keyboard cord going to your netbook

Then, if the external keyboard will work the best thing to do is to bring your netbook to the support center near in your area to check if the keyboard of the netbook if its still working properly and to find out if you really need to purchase a replacement for the keyboard of your netbook

If the external keyboard will not work you also need to go bring your netbook to the support center to check the parts that is connected in your netbook.

Dead keyboard and touchpad at login prompt

Try downloading ubuntu linux live cd. You can boot directly into linux without installing it. See if your keyboard and touchpad work in there. If not then it is a hardware problem. If it does work you may want to consider backing up your files and reinstalling windows.

Check the device status in the device manager.
Please check if the keyboard and touchpad are listed correctly without any yellow exclamation marks.

But you should try to reinstall the drivers again even though the keyboard and the touchpad were recognized properly.
In this case I would recommend removing the keyboard and the touchpad from the device manager and then you should reboot the notebook once again.

After Vista has rebooted the both devices should be recognized again and should work. To find the drivers try asking the online chat at toshiba for the driver if its not listed in the driver download page.

Not properly work keyboard button

Navigate to the Lenovo notebook support website. Once there select the make and model of your laptop and navigate to the driver download page. as your keyboard is not functioning well you will have to do this on a different pc. Download the drivers for your laptops keyboard and save the on a thumb drive(USB stick memory). Plug the stick into the USB port on your laptop and Run the driver install program. This will install the drivers for your keyboard and you will be up and running. I see this alot when people plug an external keyboard into their laptop. When they remove it the laptop retains the drivers it loaded to run the external keyboard. You can also try to go into the device manager in the control panel and right click on the keyboard and select rollback driver. Either way will work. If you need more help feel free to contact me.
