Question about Computers & Internet
The laptop senses that the CTRL key is being depressed all the time. This can be resolved by using the on screen keyboard and typing a few keys. But the problem resumes after each shut down
I was cleaning my keyboard (toshiba portege m100) the other day, with a baby wipe (a bit too vigorously i guess). When i turned on the laptop later, the keyboard stopped working. None of the keys would work. Any suggestions on what the problem might be and how to fix it?

I think its a keyboard problem.Best is to try to change and see or remove internal keyboard cable and use external USB keyboard to check.

I had the same problem and did two things
1. install toshiba common modules
the problem dissappeared for some weeks and came back
2. i removed the whole keyboard from the motherboard and re attatched it
i think the problem is with th cable from the keyboard to the motherboard.
the morons who designed it decided to bend it twice before it gets to the motherboard.
now my problem is that a lot of keys are virtually stuck in all the time so constant beeping from
crappy piece of hardware
