    My Toshiba satellite was working fine. Suddenly the keyboard was no longer active, i.e. I could not type but the mouse pad did allow me to move the cursor. I tried to correct it by using the Function keys but that did not work. I rebooted it. But the keyboard is not responding, therefore I cannot enter my password to restart the computer. Any suggestions?

    If the Ketboard doesn't respond to any commands, on/off using function keys, and when you reboot the Laptop there is no change, perhaps there is a loose connection. A ribbon cable usually connects the keyboard and can sometimes loose connection due to a bump, jar, etc. Maybe the keyboard has gone bad? You can open the Laptop and verify the connection, or clean and reseat the ribbon cable, i use a can or Electronic Contact Cleaner spray to clean the contacts. Take a look at this video, it may help you:

The keyboard is locked on my toshiba satellite l500 laptop how do I unlock this ?

So you get a been when you press a key is that correct?
A beeb is normally telling you that the keyboard data buffer is full

If so I have a feeling that one or several keys on you keybard are stuck and being pressed down.

As you dont get any letters then its likely to be a passive key, like control alt tab or a Fn key.

So give you keyboard a clean out, get the hoover out and vacum the keyboard.

The other possibility is that you keyboard has died or connections need checking.

Removing a keyboars is normally a sim ple procedure, it involves unclipping the power buttons, removing a couple of screws under the laptop releases the keyboard and it will have a wide ribbon cable that goes into a slot, In this video I show how a keyboard is normally removed from a laptop.

Toshiba portege r500 keyboared short cut keys not working

drivers wont help it seems to me you might have a broken line sometimes common in second hand laptops where keyboards have been removed time after time its a plastic ribbon cable which slots into an interface socket on the mainboard,you could get somebody to check that the cable hasnt been pulled out of the slot,or if liquid was spilled then a replacement keyboard is then the way to go.
