Water might have had damaged the keyboard.
Solution, get a new keyboard and replace it....or
get a USA regular desktop keyboard, plug it into one USA connectors, and use it.
It will work too

I spilled coffee on my laptop and it only works when i remove the keyboard. What should i do?


If you mean it boots when the keyboard is not connected try the following. Take the keyboard off the laptop. Run it under water at the sink. Shake the water out of the keyboard. Leave it dry overnight. Plug it into the laptop the next day. If it works great, if not buy a new keyboard.

My two year old spilled water on toshiba laptop which seeped into motherboard. keyboard isnt working...can changing it help solve the problem because when we connect external keyboard while disabling...


Good thing only the keyboard is not working! To answer your question, yes. Changing your laptop's keyboard should fix it. Letting it dry for a couple of days (depends on how wet it go) MIGHT also work. Well, if it doesn't work, just continue with your plan to change the keyboard.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Water spill on keyboard


Remove the battery immediately,remove the water and place the laptop in a warm dry place for a day or so until it is completely dry.
When you replace the battery and boot up the laptop, hopefully no damage is done.

Please.. tell me how to remove password toshiba portege R100 i forget


I'm assuming that this laptop is using Windows, and that the password is to an account on Windows.
At the login screen, press Ctrl+Alt+Del twice, and another login screen asking for a username and password should appear. In this box, put "Administrator" for the password, and either insert absolutely nothing, or "Administrator" for the password. I don't remember which works correctly, but one of the two will.

Portege R100 (Toshiba). I have not used this laptop in over a year and can not rem the bios password I'd set. Tried all I could think of. Is there any way to reset the password on this?


Hi,yes there is but you'll have to open the system up,if you have no prior I.T expertise I'd suggest you take to a qualified Technician,but if you do here is how:First remove the Battery,then uncouple the system taking of where each of the screws go to then locate the CMOS battery(small battery Lithium Ion mostly in the shape of a cent or smaller),it may be underneath the keyboard or just behind once the external cover is open.unplug it from the system for about an hour or two reconnect it,couple the system and boot,go to Bios,reset Date and Time and save,then exit.

Toshiba R100 keyboard not working


I did the same some two years ago, with the R100 on. I switched everything off, dismounted the computer body (not the screen)up to the last screw, and dried that sweet coffee from everywhere where I found it. Mostly this was the keyboard and mouse. The motherboard is luckily protected by some plastic sheet.

Regarding the keyboard, after disconnecting it from the motherboard, I washed it completely under flowing water and then let it dry for several days. In the meantime, I used a USB one. Since then, I used the same keyboard for two years until now, when it died, apparently rather from some motherboard-related reason than water. So I think - you may get a new keyboard, but if youre lucky, you may as well revive this old one.

Laptop will not go in BIOS or boot up


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.
