The connections are visible after you remove the keyboard..and they are actually ribbons in a plug ..to remove teh keyboard you have to first remove the hinges cover (2 inch wide lid that it is under the monitor top of the keyboard) remove it first from the back on inged (unclick) and after that from the F1 and f11 keys it has an accces point for a plastic flat instrument ..After removing this ..you look for any screws may hold the keyboard in place ..and slide it 2 cm towards the monitor ..and up..cause it is also snapped in clicks..and under you will have its ribbon ..and the ribbon from the pad...anyway if it is just a plug issue well if not probably will have to replace the ribbon connectors ..but I guess being in the same zone located and both behaving bizarre it may be a cause of a shock ..and just unplugged themselves..

Why is it my touch screen workks, but my fold out keyboard os locked and buttons are not working. the letter buttons. help please.


the touch screen is not connected the same as your keyboard the screen is direct hardware connected and youre keyboard and mouse are connected as bluetooth devices. you shoud have what is reffered to as a .dongle, which plugs into any comuter usb port, and talks to the keyboard and mouse. first check or replace the batteries inn both the mouse and the keyboard, then make to turn on the switch on the backside of the keyborad. Then push the button,connect, on the back of the dongle, and finally push the connect button on the bottomside of the mouse.The mouse and dongle should flash if they are talking to each other.

If you have an old keyboard and mouse that plug directly into the computer then they are hard wired directly to the motherboard by sockets. these are not repairable. but first go to start-botom left corner and click on the icon and go to control panel and select keyboard and rest all defaults such as keyboard language, rebbot and try again...my keyboard after installing defaults to french canada and i have to change to us otherwise my question mark becomes a french e. I hope this helps

Re toshiba techra 8000


Some laptops have a touch pad between the keyboard and the edge of the laptop. This works like a mouse except you slide your finger around the pad to move the mouse pointer and the buttons next to the touch pad are the left and right buttons.
Other laptops have a small round button in the middle of the keyboard which is a mini joystick and it is used to move the mouse pointer around, it will have a couple of mouse buttons at the botom edge of the keyboard.
You can connect a normal mouse to your laptop, it is mush easier than using the laptop's touch pad or mini joystick.

Touchpad will not work


Hello, seems like a problem with the touchpad, first disable and enable the touchpad with the button which is located at the top of the touchpad, the corresponding LED should change from blue to orange and vice versa. If this doesn't solve the issue, reinstall the driver for the touchpad, you can find this by searching for 'recovery manager' in the start bar. Next step is to select 'advance options' and choose reïnstall hardware driver, there should be an option called 'Synaptics touchpad driver' select and install. kr Gijs

Left click for mouse does not respond - right click very slow


replace the keyboard with one from eBay that would be the least costly way to repair the problem. sounds like the cable has been damaged for the keyboard to motherboard interface. have you tried connecting a mouse to the usb port or the ps2 port on the back? that may solve the problem if you don't want to replace the keyboard
