Somehow, my three-year-old must have locked the keys on our Toshiba Satellite L505D laptop. How do I unlock them? We have a wireless mouse for it, which I can still use.


Don't blame your daughter ;) some Toshiba laptops have this keyboard problem. seems the easiest remedy is;
  • Shut down.
  • Remove the battery and the AC power.
  • Wait for 5 - 10 minutes or hold the power button depressed for about ten seconds.
  • Put the battery and power back.
  • Turn on the computer.
I believe there is an updated driver for the keyboard you can download from the Toshiba support website that may may prevent this from recurring.

Hope this helps ;)

My laptop shut down after powering out with no warning and will not restart.... Toshiba L550 screen stays black but when I hit the enter key it beeps........any suggestions


“My Toshiba laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without any warning. Sometimes it works fine for hours, sometimes it shuts down in 10-15 minutes.” This complaint we hear from our customers over and over again. About 15-20% of all Toshiba laptops we get for repair, suffer from an overheating problem. Yep, OVERHEATING!
This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with.
Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

My 4 year old Toshiba INtel Pentium laptop consistently shuts down randomly after about 10-20 minutes of activity at first only when plugged into specific power outlets but the number of "bad outlets" has...


Hi

Thank you for your query

From what you are describing it sounds like a intermittent motherboard issue

Please try the following

1) Switch on your Laptop
2) Press F12 or del key or esc to enter bios mode
3) Once in bios mode leave there and see if it shuts down
4) If it does shutdown thne you are having a overheating issue and i belive it will be the heat sink that has gone faulty, you will need to book into a reputable PC shop for repair
5) If it doesnt shut down in this mode then you have a softwqare issue and will need to carry out a full reformat of the laptop

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank you again

Found a Toshiba laptop, about 2 years old. Screen


at two years old it is basically exctinct already and the costs of laptops coming down so rapidly you can probably go on craigslist or ebay and find a cheap laptop that is working and ready to be portable. you can also try and sell the toshiba online for parts
