    Hi . I did test it with one of my old Keyboards in which only ESC was not working . But with that too , it is showing similar results . Will it help if I reinstall keyboard software ?

    Probably not. If the keyboard connector, (socket) got wet, that could cause it.

  • Anish Hemachandran Dec 28, 2013

    So would I have to replace the socket entirely or just wait for it to dry up properly ?

    You cannot replace the socket unless you have hot air and a desoldering station. If it is wet, order areplacement keyboard and by the time it arrives, it will be dry.

SOURCE: toshiba satellite touchpad & keyboard stopped working

As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.

Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.

Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.

SOURCE: spilled milk on toshiba satellite M505-S4940

  1. Make sure to unplug all cables and power. Remove all!
  2. If the screen can be tilted all the way back so as to lay the Laptop flat, then lay the laptop flat, keyboard down, on top of a large piece of paper towel.
  3. Watch to see that the towel absorbs excess liquid, remove the laptop.
  4. Fill a liquid sprayer with some water, remember to remove any soaps or detergents from the container. Use water only.
  5. Form a medium size paper clip into a square hook that will fit beneath the suspect keys.
  6. Place the hook under a key and pull gently upwards until the key pops out. Be careful, I have broken a few!!!
  7. As can be observed when you do this, the keyboard is visible and cleaning can be done with a cotton swap. Spray the cotton swab with the sprayer; do not spray directly onto the keyboard. The idea of the sprayer is to avoid mishaps like dropping excess water onto the keyboard!
  8. When done with all suspect keys; replace the keys always aware of the right positioning to avoid rework! Remember to clean inside, under the key etc.
  9. If this doesn't do it or are hesitant; take it to a technician.

Toshiba satellite l750-16l "a disk read error occurred"will a new hard drive fix

You hard drive is missing from the system. Or, just does not recognize it. The obvious - Remove any USB devices like drives and any media from disc player. Its trying to load, but can't find bootable hard drive, CD, or USB... Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

How do I replace the keyboard?

next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. for any additional questions.

Spill soda on my laptop keyboard

It is likely the only problem is that the soda is causing the keys to stick. There is probably no damage to any other internal components. Usually, laptop keyboards have a metal-based frame/tray that will protect the internal components from minor spills.

If you want to get rid of the cracking sound, you'll need to purchase a replacement keyboard from the laptop manufacturer or another source such as eBay, and then remove the sticky keyboard and replace it with the newly purchased one.
