Memory slots are getting loose. Try to keep pressure on the memory door. Also, might try new memory.
Good luck

My blue nipple mouse is screwing up Toshiba Satellite 6100 Mouse i in the middle of the keyboard works rarely but sometimes moves cursor to upper right or lower left corner of screen & then it...

Sounds like the keyboard has gone bad (the mouse and the keyboard are integrated into one unit). Replace it. Cheapest source of these parts will be eBay.

Toshiba tekra 8100 on off knapp var finns den ?

> on off button where finds it?

The ON/OFF could a switch that "slides" about 50 mm,
or it could be a button with an 'I" inside a "circle".

The pictures at:


do not show any "button" on/near the keyboard.

The picture:

does not show any button on the back.

So, look for a "slider" or a "button" on the side(s) of the case.

Re toshiba techra 8000

Some laptops have a touch pad between the keyboard and the edge of the laptop. This works like a mouse except you slide your finger around the pad to move the mouse pointer and the buttons next to the touch pad are the left and right buttons.
Other laptops have a small round button in the middle of the keyboard which is a mini joystick and it is used to move the mouse pointer around, it will have a couple of mouse buttons at the botom edge of the keyboard.
You can connect a normal mouse to your laptop, it is mush easier than using the laptop's touch pad or mini joystick.

Cursor only moves left to right

This device is monitored via a kind of strain gauge; that is why it does not seem to move; it does move but not noticeably.
If it is no longer responsive in one or the other direction, I would call it dead.
I have never seen one of these loose but I would expect to find a small sealed housing that has an equally small, multicontact connector attached.
If you are unlucky, Toshiba may have attached this to the keyboard's platform requiring the replacement of it as a unit.

On most laptops, the keyboard is fairly easy to remove and if you can accomplish that, restoring the truncated joy stick is probably not difficult.
Sorry I cannot give you detailed instructions for disassembly.

Mouse pad problem, cursor is moving but click function is not working

Try to enter BIOS (press ESC on start up) and see if mousepad is set correctly.
Otherwise try to download updated drivers from Toshiba website.

Keyboard problem


It sounds like you have a space bar that is stuck in the pressed position.

First, I would try cleaning with compressed air. This can be purchased at most any retail store in the electronics department. One you have it, just clean around each key as good as you can.

If that doesn't work, you can try to remove the keyboard so that you may be able to clean it better. Below, I have listed a site with instructions for removing the keyboard and also a site that has cleaning suggestions.

Keyboard removal instruction site:
This site also has pictures to help you along.

Keyboard Cleaning suggestion site:
This site list cleaning suggestions under the Product Knowledge section. I would only proceed as far as you feel comfortable in these instructions.
