Certain keys on my laptops keyboard wont register

The funny thing is that the keyboard works 100% percent when it wants to.....and then when it malfunctions it will be a row like for ex. the #6,Y,H,N, and even the space bar. If any one is out there with a similar problem or solution better yet.....please any help would be appreciated. Its a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5892.

Yep, I know this problem. Mine is similar, with a Dell. And on the Dell it appears to be caused by the cable from the keyboard to the laptop gets pinched. Gripping the laptop wrong causes the problem, and gripping it another way makes them work again. I fixed the problem and it stayed fixed for quite a while earlier - by opening it up, taking out the keyboard, then putting it back in. Back then the keyboard hardly worked at all, until I did that. I had instructions for doing this, and you'll need specific instructions if you are to do this. I found a set of instructions for something else that includes accessing the keyboard:

Percent key stopped working

Royals are quite rare as they are only sold in certain areas. I don't have any information for this model. Check the programming for the percent button. If you have lost your manual, there is one on the net that I send my customers to:
Hope that helps

Pc spacebar`

Not being funny, but is the keyboard clean. Have you tried using a vacuum cleaning to try to clean the keyboard? You could also try using a compressed air can to clean the keyboard. If this fails, then it may be time for a new keyboard to be fitted. Another problem that happens is that the contacts under the keys wear and then they don't make full contact. Hope this will help. Good luck. Mind you this day an age it may be cheaper to buy a replacement laptop than to get the keyboard replaced.

Fn key is not working properly

Usually on a laptop If the keyboard starts acting funny there is pretty much no simple thing you can do to fix it. Step one would be to connect another keyboard through usb to the laptop and see if the problem persists with the new keyboard. If it doesn't and this problem isn't something you can live with then its time to get a new keyboard for your laptop. Don't worry they usually cost around $60 and are easy to install. I use this site alot if i come across a laptop i have yet to see and need to take it apart. Now Removing your keyboard will void your warranty and if you are unsure about doing it then your best bet would be to take it to the professional. But doing this will probably add another $100 to the price of the repair. Good Luck in getting your keyboard fixed. If it were be I would just live with the Fn key not working and Find another way to do whatever it is i was trying to do :)

G6000 hen pressing keyboard letter it type 4

Hi there

Does this happen with almost every key, or only certain keys? And if you press a key very quickly, does it still register it as 4 presses?

Also, please confirm the operating system on the laptop, such as XP or Vista.

Please do not rate this solution unless I have answered your question or your reply will not be returned to me. Thanks.
