You have to get it changed. You might have to get your pc's keypad rubber changed which lies beneath it. You have to change it. But you can also try to take out those keys with the help of some tools and try cleaning under the keys and as well as on the keypads from where you picked the keys out.

I have a Toshiba Satellite P205-S6237 with a built-in Chicony USB 2.0 camera, I cant get it to work, need help


Many Toshiba laptops, including Satellite, Portege and Qosmio models, feature built-in Chicony-brand webcams.


The Chicony webcam can be problematic, especially when running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista.


Microsoft has released an update that will correct problems with starting the webcam after terminating "Sleep" mode.


Users may also have to install the appropriate driver or webcam software to correct webcam problems.


Dark or Black Webcam Image Problems


Toshiba laptop owners may have problems with the webcam displaying as dark or completely black a few seconds after the initial image appears or immediately after engaging the webcam.


Users should ensure that the webcam indicator light is engaged.

If not, users should run the "Camera Assistant Software" to turn on the webcam.


Low light can cause the webcam to power off and to display a dark image.

Users can tweak the light and contrast by manually increasing the lighting in the room or by turning on "Night Mode."


If these steps do not correct the dark image problem, users may have to reset the webcam itself, reinstall the "Camera Assistant" software.


Webcam Problems After Terminating Sleep Mode


Toshiba laptop owners with Windows Vista (any 32-bit edition) installed and the Chicony webcam may have problems starting the webcam after restoring the laptop from "Sleep" mode.

"Sleep" mode powers down a number of hardware components in the laptop.


The webcam is capable of entering a non-operating system-induced sleep mode when it is not used for an extended period of time.


After the user engages Windows "Sleep" mode and wakes the laptop, the webcam may give error messages such as "Locked by another application."


This webcam problem can be corrected by installing a Windows Hotfix, which is also included in Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1).
Webcam Problems After Upgrading Windows Vista

Toshiba Satellite laptop owners may opt to use the Microsoft Anytime Upgrade to upgrade to Vista Ultimate.


After doing so, the Chicony webcam may stop working and report a "Please turn on the camera" error message.


Users can correct this problem by reinstalling the Chicony driver.


Webcam Problems on Linux


Linux users who own Toshiba laptops with the Chicony webcam should install the Linux UVC Driver to make the webcam functional. The webcam may not work without this driver.


Grainy or Blurry Webcam Image


The Chicony webcam can produce grainy or blurry images if the user does not remove the protective film that covers the external webcam interface.

on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right

software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

Windows XP/Vista/7/8


It might take some time being a freeware driver solution

note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

this is a free driver solutions

this will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you

want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated

Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

Keyboard problem


Try pressing both the left and right CTRL keys at the same time and

see if that releases CTRL.


Go to Start / Settings / Control Panel / Accessibility Options /

Keyboard Options.


Turn off CTRL lock if it's on.

If that solves it and to avoid future problems, press "Settings"


Turn off "Press modifier key twice to lock".

Turn on "Turn sticky keys off if 2 keys are pressed at once".

Or turn off "Use shortcut"


Clean your keyboard.

Hello. some keys like "6,y.u.w


if it is a laptop keyboard that is not working but you want to use an external keyboard just buy a usb one. Typically if you are running an windows xp or newer, it will just recognized the keyboard and you will be fine.
PS2 is that round plug with 6 pins you would find on older computers.

If you did not want to use an external keyboard and want to try to fix the the internal laptop's keyboard, there are a few things you could try:
1'st, shoot the keys with air duster to see if you can dislodge anything stuck under them.
2'nd, you can pop off the keys and press directly on the contact to see if the button works.
3'd, if that doesn't work you can take off the keyboard and ther will be a part number on the bottom of it. type that into google and you can find a place that sells replacement keyboards.
I did this on a Toshiba satellite and it worked fine, just be sure not to break the keyboard ribbon connector on the motherboard when you remove it.

My ctrl key on keyboard not function because "ctrl" key always hold down,so i can't press the other key. example when I write on word i type s the function became ctrl+s is saving file not type...


You can either free up the key or you could just plug in a usb keyboard and try that. Be very careful when trying to free up the key they are fragile, did you spill anything on the keyboard. It might not be stuck just shorted out.
Try the usb keyboard option first.

I lost my question mark -- what do I press to get it back


Press your FN key.
If you look at your Keyboard on a laptop you'll see that certain keys have more than 1 symbol on them.
The FN key brings these secondary symbols to life as live keys and pressing it again will restore original function to the keyboard.
