Question about Toshiba Portege 3505 Tablet PC
I have a toshiba portege 3505 tablet pc. When I turn it on it won't get past the BIOS boot screen unless I hit the Enter/Menu button that is on the front of the computer below the screen. But when I do, even though it boots completely, the keyboard is non-operational. Not only can I not do anything with the keyboard, it will start acting up as if someone is pressing keys or holding down keys by entering random text or responding as if I have hit the enter key.

SOURCE: Weird keyboard problem
it must be that ur ctrl button has been stuck....so next time press and release the ctrl button several times and try to run the same i.e. press r key or e key and it won't start the run command or explorer window....

its some hard to do but maybe you can
. Your notebook
2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb)
3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC)
4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks)
This is what you have to do:
1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor
2. Put the disk in drive A:
3. Change the first five bytes of sector 2 (boot sector is sector 1) to: 4B 45 59 00 00
4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK
5. Remove the disk from drive A:
6. Put the disk in the notebook drive
7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button)
8. Press Enter when asked for Password:
9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter.
10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password

We use these and several times I have had to pull the battery, disconnect the power cord and hold the power button for 30 seconds (count slow). After that, it boots fine.

First , try letting "Windows Update" install new driver. Be sure to plug in any USB devices you want to use BEFORE you start Windows Update. That way ,Windows Update will detect these USB devices as well as your USB hub. Because it may be that your external USB device is the problem.
