Toshiba Laptop Keys Not Working Right

Hi. I have a 3-year old Toshiba laptop. The keys have stopped working properly. The Cap key doesn't work, the space key doesn't work, others stick no matter how many times I hit them. I just installed a brand new keyboard, and the problem is the same, so it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem. I have an external keyboard plugged into the laptop and that works just fine. What can I do?

Complete system clean and optimization...possibly formate drive and reinstall windows...being that its an old pc, it probably is slow do to needing a good cleaning. if both those resolutions dont work then its the pc.

Some keys on keyboard stopped working-can't even type in complete password

Hi Kenneth,

The easiest solution to your problem, is to attach via usb, a normal PC Keyboard to your Laptop, however, if you're mobile with the Laptop, then I suggest you take the unit to a PC shop so the Tehies there can fix the problem, which is basically, lack of graphite between keys and PCB in your Laptop, not for you to play with.

I hope this answers your query.

Compaq CQ60 some keys not working

The keyboard maybe faulty.
Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.
If this external keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the laptop motherboard is faulty and it would not be worth repairing as this is an old model laptop.

My Toshiba L505 ES5018 FN keys is not working

Hello. It's possible the driver for the wireless card(network interface controller) was not installed properly. Try to download the drivers from Toshiba website and install on your laptop. You may get the WiFi Driver from this link

There's two WiFi Driver available, try to use the Realtek first and if it doesn't work try the Atheros. If WiFi driver installed correctly you should no longer see the "!" symbol and you will be able to enable wireless on your laptop using FN key combination.

Hope this works for you.

Hi, i have a toshiba x205-s9800. my two year old seems to have accidently pressed some keys and disabled the keyboard...please help...

You could have deleted the keyboard in the device manager. If so, rebooting your computer and it will find it.
Are all the keys not working or just some? Take a look at this hint and see if it fits.
I do this for fun & feedback not $$$

Keys on laptop stopped working

it may be a result of pressing these keys too hard although 7 key is unusual unless its one you use all the time but I do nitice that hese keys are grouped near vetically and so it may be the circuit secction of the keyboard. I think in this case the repaitr man may be the best option.

Toshiba Laptop Keyboard problem

My Toshiba Satellite A45 S120 keyboard has a problem, some of the keys are not working. When you type it does noting. Sometimes when you start the computer, it continuously types the letter eeeeeeee. You can hit some keys randomly and this will stop, but if you start a program (eg. ms word) the same thing happens.
