Toshiba tecra keyboard problems

Hi all,

When I hit either my "y" or "=" key, I get an "r" after the letter, for example "yr" and "=r". Any ideas how to fix this?

I am sure your laptop is infected by virus it is not detected by any antivirus as it resides on your hard drive as a system file.Just Format the drive in which the windows is installed and then reinstall windows.

Try getting a can of compressed air and clean out the keyboard. Many times crumbs get in there and get stuck. you can get a can from Walmart, Staples, almost anywhere. Clean it out first. if this fails a key board is easy to instal and you can get a replacement for around $20 or less on ebay.

Well it could be several things, not the least of things is radiated electrical noise. Seriously, I had several customers get hit with this problem. One test was to hold your hands just over the keyboard. If random characters appear, you sitting within the radius of a strong transformer.

Look around the area you are in, do you see any type of antenna nearby? If you do, rotate your lap top 90 degrees.

Also, the keyboard may be starting to fail. From your description I would suspect that the scan code for the key you pressed is not getting reported back to the CPU properly.

Replacing the keyboard on a Satellite is fairly straight forward. The replacement part from Toshiba only cost $35. and that included shipping.
