Question about Computers & Internet
I have an 18 month old Toshiba laptop, no warranty and the "s" key has stopped responding. I changed the keyboard and the problem is still there. Everything else seems to be fine. I've updated the bios and that didn't change anything. Do you have any ideas about what I should try next? Its been suggested that I change the motherboard - if I do this is the problem likely to recur - this seems to be an issue with Toshiba laptops. Someone else suggested it may be the ribbon that the laptop attaches to as with a bit of jigging about the "s" did put in a brief appearance.
Thank you for your time
If you replaced the keyboard, then you also got a new ribbon cable. The keyboard and ribbon cable come attached to each other. From the information that you have given me, the only thing I can think of is replacing the motherboard. As with all computer components, the problem can possibly recur. As long as your computer is still worth over $500 I would say it is worth replacing.
