No need to replace keyboard. If it really failed than none of the keys would work. Unplug it, turn it upside down, unscrew all the screws, open it up, clean top of he contact board with cloth dipped in alcohol. You can wash plastic parts and membrane manually in warm water with dish washing detergent. After that, wrap it in towel to dry. You can use a hair dryer but from a distance. Drying can take hours unless you work in it. Than just put all back together and screw back the screws. Plug in keyboard.

You don't need to replace the whole keyboard if any of your keys fell off or doesn't work anymore. There is a site from where you can order your keys, as they have all the major brands available. You can even install the keys yourself by going through their video tutorial. It's the easiest way. http://laptopkey.com/

My Portege M400 will not turn on with the battery installed. It will work if you remove the battery and use the power supply. The power light only blinks yellow while the battery is installed. I have tried...


You look very much the unlucky owner of a busted battery.

I'm afraid the battery will have to be replaced. Meanwhile, do not use it with the power supply; not only it will do no good, as you already determined, but it might damage the power supply itself.

Laptop keyboard problem


When you have a problem like this, you need a new keyboard. The keyboards on a laptop are more fragile than full-sized keyboards, but remember that they are just electronic parts. Fragile circuits can be damaged by misuse (including accidentally spilling liquids). Also, they can fail (just like any electronic part) for no apparent reason.
My suggestion--get a new keyboard. They really aren't all that hard to replace.

Toshiba portege r500 keyboared short cut keys not working


drivers wont help it seems to me you might have a broken line sometimes common in second hand laptops where keyboards have been removed time after time its a plastic ribbon cable which slots into an interface socket on the mainboard,you could get somebody to check that the cable hasnt been pulled out of the slot,or if liquid was spilled then a replacement keyboard is then the way to go.

No power


Any hope you may have left other than an expensive repair, is to remove the battery and leave the unit in an airing cupboard for a week and pray. Then replace the battery and try again. No change - then nothing lost. I know it's basic, and best done as soon as the damage was done, but has worked for me in similar circumstances. Don't be tempted to use a warm oven.
