I have a Toshiba Laptop Satellite M505-S4940. The right side of the laptop keyboard doesn't type the correct letters that are depressed. Everything to the right of the letter Y doesn't type the correct letter. No problem with the left side and no problem when using my wireless usb keyboard. Problem is only with the Toshiba keyboard on the laptop. Any solution?

The only way to get rid of this is to replace your built in keyboard....!

    I don't think that this is correct. I am an experienced computer technician and have answered this question many times. The problem could be that the NumLock is on causing the letters to become like a 10 key pad. Try turning off the NumLock and see if this doesn't correct the problem.

Does toshiba satellite m505-s4940 come with hdmi port

Quoted from CNET review:

"A full-size ExpressCard slot and a memory-card slot are all welcome features, but HDMI has been dropped in the S4940--a plugged-up port is all that remains. "

Spilled milk on toshiba satellite M505-S4940

  1. Make sure to unplug all cables and power. Remove all!
  2. If the screen can be tilted all the way back so as to lay the Laptop flat, then lay the laptop flat, keyboard down, on top of a large piece of paper towel.
  3. Watch to see that the towel absorbs excess liquid, remove the laptop.
  4. Fill a liquid sprayer with some water, remember to remove any soaps or detergents from the container. Use water only.
  5. Form a medium size paper clip into a square hook that will fit beneath the suspect keys.
  6. Place the hook under a key and pull gently upwards until the key pops out. Be careful, I have broken a few!!!
  7. As can be observed when you do this, the keyboard is visible and cleaning can be done with a cotton swap. Spray the cotton swab with the sprayer; do not spray directly onto the keyboard. The idea of the sprayer is to avoid mishaps like dropping excess water onto the keyboard!
  8. When done with all suspect keys; replace the keys always aware of the right positioning to avoid rework! Remember to clean inside, under the key etc.
  9. If this doesn't do it or are hesitant; take it to a technician.

What is the best way for me to connect my toshiba

Depends on the available connections on the laptop.

You can use the basic monitor out (usually blue) for picture and an mp3 - rca cable for the sound.

Also a white digital out is sometimes present on laptops which can be also used.

There are many ways but as I said it depends on the laptop options.

But better still is hdmi for both if your laptop has it.

My Toshiba Satellite M505 S4940 has a blinking orange light on the lower right side. The laptop seems to be working properly, but the light is always flickering on and off. Does this mean anything? And if...

The laptop must be in a standby mode. If this does not effect performance then your fine the light is not hurting nothing.

If and when in doubt take it into a bestbuy or a tech store to have it looked at locally as I cannot see what the light label is. Please do not worry about it if everything is working great.

Please leave your rating and review on my solution. Thanks
