    BIOS was possible changed where you have an option swap Fn and CTRL key, I jus
    disable that option and now my left CTRL key is back. Now I can use all
    my favorite shortcuts.

Keyboard for lenovo R500 laptop not working


What do you mean not working? Is it that certain keys don't work, or the whole keyboard does not work?

Maybe your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus. Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode to see if it works?

Turn off the computer, then hit the power buttonto turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly untilyou see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. SafeMode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the iconsbigger, this is normal

Certain key (The A,B,N, Enter and right hand Shift keys will now work. Any fixes for this problem? Toshiba says it's a motherboard problem. I'm thinking it's not.


It shouldnt be a Motherboard problem. You may need to take apart the keyboard and clean it or it may be need to be replaced all together but the keyboard is separate from the Motherboard.

Some keys on my laptop dont work


Trying a desktop keyboard is useful for determining if it is a keyboard problem or a software problem. This usualy happens if some liquid has gotten into the keyboard, but you said thats not possible. Try to boot into bios, the first screen that pops up when you boot, on a toshiba it is usually pressing F1 or Del. then if your Arrow keys don't work there, you need a new keyboard.

Need a toshiba portege R500 vista recovery disk


Toshiba Factory Reset
a couple of ways to do that 1) if you have the recovery CDs supplied with the PC - then you can use these - put the CD into the drive and when it boots follow the instructions 2) If you have a recovery partition on the laptop - have a read here to see if you have one http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/outFrm.jsp?ofId=AskIris&searchString=recovery+to+factory 3) This link shows you how to use the partition http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/bulletinDetail.jsp?soid=2291088&pf=true basically as the PC boots TAP F8 key - from the menu that appears choose "repair your computer"
If that option is NOT available then you will need to Order CDs from Toshiba - http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/System-Recovery-and-Recovery/Recovery-media/m-p/9148#U9148

Toshiba portege r500 keyboared short cut keys not working


drivers wont help it seems to me you might have a broken line sometimes common in second hand laptops where keyboards have been removed time after time its a plastic ribbon cable which slots into an interface socket on the mainboard,you could get somebody to check that the cable hasnt been pulled out of the slot,or if liquid was spilled then a replacement keyboard is then the way to go.

Toshiba a60 laptop keyboard problem


it's possible that the keyboard is broken somehow, and a key is jammed: from what you're saying, probably the E key.

try checking the keyboard to see if anything is jammed.  if that doesn't work, try plugging in an external keyboard, if possible.

@ key not working in toshiba laptop


has it ever worked?
it could be that your are pressing the wrong combination buttons or that if its a laptop with a spanish keyboard, the keyboard settings is kind of wrong..

to check if its the keyboard settings, go to control panel and look for something that has to do with lenguaje.. there you can set up the lenguaje you want..

hope that helped..

Installing XP on Toshiba Portege R500 Notebook


Guys, if you have the genuine XP CD, please download the Storage Driver from Intel and slipstream it into your version of XP CD. You can also slipstream Service Packs into it as well.
Personally I hate Vista so much. It really brings out the angry devil in me.
By the way, the best and easiest way to slipstream is to install and use nLite http://www.nliteos.com/
Let me know if you want help on installing XP on R500 (I build it a few days ago, but regret to update the BIOS to version 1.06 as I lost the Ctrl key on it).
To get to the BIOS, press and hold the Esc key then Power button.
