Question about Toshiba Portege 4010 Notebook

I have a damaged keyboard which needs to be replaced

Can anyone tell me how to get to the keyboard so as to replace it. It seems there is a key stuck (or a few) and it loads up a search all the time continuously. I'm familiar with electronics and have upgraded PCs before but once the back is off this model it is not self evident as to how to remove items further to get to the keyboard.

Yes I have taken the keys themselves off and cleaned and replaced them. still have a problem.

So I need to know
1. how to get to the keyboard to replace it and
2. where to buy a replacement keyboard

Thank you for your time.

Here is the best way is 1st turn the unit upside down and remove all the screws along the rear two rows. 2nd turn the laptop back over and open the lcd. 3rd with a flat bladed screw driver, to the left of the power button there should be a small recessed tab, use your screw driver to gently lift the "strip cover" exposing the keyboard screws. Remove the screws and the keyboard should lift up exposing the keyboard connector.( if the keyboard does not lift easily, remove more base screws around the center of hte unit), 4th using your finger nail either lift or push the latches of the keyboard connector, allowing easy removal of the keyboard. The P/N should be listed on the keyboard starting with a "P".

Select boot device Error after keyboard spill Wierd results


It is more than likely the motherboard has been compromised, you will see white spotted area's where the liquid has spilt. I have fixed a few boards using a stiff toothbrush and rubbing alcohol, but to be successfull this needs to done quickly. If you are able to clean everything off and it seems to work check out www.ebay.com Type make and model, refine search to keyboard.

Dell keyboard carriage return key stuck


Keyboards for laptops can be replaced, just not normally by typical users.If you feel brave you can often find the maintenance guid for your model online, which should tell you exactly how to remove the keyboard. Then all you would have to do is search online for a keyboard replacement part using the model name of the laptop.

Have a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard and mouse 5000. When hitting the 'f'' I get a search for files and folders screen. When hitting the 'l' key, I am locked out. 'M' key clears the screen...


Sounds like the Windows key is stuck. Try pressing both of them a few times to toggle it and see if this still happens. If it does try removing the keyboard, shutting down and put the keyboard back in.


Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

How do you switch from using the blue coded keys to the regular keys...my keyboard is using the blue coded keys like this one é and I cannot make it stop.


The blue-coloured 'fn' key must be "stuck" in the "down" position. Tap it, a few times, to "unstick" it.

Or, replace the keyboard.

Sony vaio pcg k 15 notebook beeps on starup


If you hit some keys and then it starts - it indicates a stuck key on the keyboard. Check the keys to make sure they are all fully up and nothing has been spilled on them or gotten stuck under them. Keys can be removed usually by prying gently under the edge and replaced by pressing down firmly. Probably what is happening is the if a program opens and you see a series of 4's is that the "4" key is the one sticking partially and preventing boot up. The beeeep is simply to tell you something is wrong with hardware, ie: keyboard, mouse, memory will all generate a long beep or several short beeps. The owners manual will list beep codes to help you determine where to look to find the problem.

Problem with toshiba M100 keyboard control chip? key always stuck


Actually it looks like a problem with the key itself to me. It would be easier to just replace the keyboard, e.g buy used one on ebay. If it was the keyboard controller, you would probably get problems with other keys too due to how it works (keyboard scanning - a few keys processed on one input).

Keyboard mapping is messed up, It's like the fn key is always pressed down


This could be a few things:
The simple ones first:
1. fn key is stuck (bang the keyboard lightly on the desk a few times)
2. The wrong driver for the keyboard is loaded (Unistall the keyboard driver, download the lastetest and reinstall with the setup.exe supplied, otherwise windows will just install the old keyboard driver again)

This this does not work, post me the make and model of the keyboard, operating system, as I'm asumming it's windows.
With a little history: i.e. Is this a new install etc..

These guys are repairers so they may have extra copies.
IBM's Typewriter's site also has manual for sale for less than $20.

The typewriter seems to have a bad ribbon cartridge or a bad typing wheel. Take each one out and try to see if it will type normal. If one does, then you know to replace it.
