Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S150 Notebook
Most likely the ribon that attaches to the board is damaged or not seated in straight. also, try updating your chipset/ mainboard drivers also, is could be a software issue. Go to the Manufacturers website and look up any new drivers or r-install the old ones.
also, it may just need to be cleaned out.

First thing to do is to figure out if this is a keyboard problem or not. Plug an external keyboard in and try it. if the problem goes away, you've probably got a keyboard problem. If it doesn't, you probably got a motherboard problem. If the external keyboard doesn't make a difference, there is not too much that you can do and you are probably looking at a motherboard replacement.
Once established that you have a keyboard problem, take the keyboard off of the notebook and clean it real good. Using compressed air, a brush and firmly tapping it on it's side while using these.
Check the cable and connectors on the keyboard to make sure they are properly seated and not damaged. Plug it back in and try it. If it works, good for you! You've just fixed it. If not, don't mess with it. Get a replacement and you are good to go.

Its normally a tiresomejob to try and fix a keyboard, try to check if there are ANY stack keys else you need to open the keyboard and clean it.
