Mine comes off from the top - with the notebook open - right at the back of the keyboard there's a strip that clips off. Under there there are some screws and the keyboard lifts toward you and out from the bottom. This is on a Toshiba, don't know if yours is the same.

My wireles keyboard some keys are not working


Bad news. Try to remove key and clean with DRY cotton or som professional contact cleaner - ask for it in a computer shop. If problem persiste, remember, keyboards. even expensive ones are "consumible". If won'r work, get a new one

When I use the keyboard only some letters work


Replace the keyboard -- it would cost $50 to $100 to "clean" and/or "trouble-shoot" the keyboard.

Try to _NOT_ spill coffee/pop into the replacement keyboard.

2wsx keys dont work


Sorry you are having trouble. This sounds like the keyboard is bad. Take it to a shop if you don't feel comfortable replacing it your self. This is a fairly easy job. Remove the bezel with the power switch. Then remove the keyboard. Let me know if you need more info.

Keyboard sticking


Hello, A sticky keyboard can sometimes be fixed by removing the key as you've done, but sometime the trouble lies deeper in the keyboard. There are small contacts that can wear out or get built up with a surface film. Might be time to replace the whole keyboard. It's not that hard if you have the aptitude and they do come out and go in as a complete unit. Cost for a new one can be from $20 - 50. Try looking on ebay & the link below.
Good luck, mpawlak908

7,4,1 keys in keyboard are not working also the DEL key not working


Turn the keyboard off, unplug it, take out the batteries. MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS STEP BEFORE PROCEEDING! Remove the metal plate under the octave you are having trouble with. Get a can of compressed air, and GENTLY use it to blow out the strike pads (the part of the white key that hits the computer board) Reassemble and power it on.

N, H, T and Backspace keys suddenly not working.


You can try blowing it out with compressed air, but you will probably need to remove the keyboard to make sure nothing was spilled or stuck in there. You should be able to remove the keyboard by removing the battery, then removing the keyboard securing strip, and then you should be able to take a screwdriver and pry the keyboard up and out.

I finally managed to remove the cover and solder the broken wire. Works fine exept the keyboard, but that is a result of old soda spill. This computer has been used with external keyboard for some months. I cleaned the keyboard with luke warm water and placed it for dry for 36 hours, but there are still som keys that dont work and Fn seems to be constantly on.
