Question about Computers & Internet
Not enough information to give you a complete guide, but most laptops require a top cover (in front of the hinges) to be prised off to reveal several screws which are holding the keyboard down (Dell, Toshiba, some HPs and cheaper Sony).
Other laptops (acer, asus, medion etc) have screws accessed on the rear of the laptop to release the top cover and keyboard.
Once you have access, note carefully how the keyboard ribbon cable is attached to the motherboard, as reconnecting can occasionally be awkward.

These days, laptop computers, like the Toshiba A305, are designed so that many of the components can be removed and replaced.
This includes the keyboard, which can be removed even if it becomes broken or damaged. This is good because it means you don't need to toss out the whole computer, but you may be worried about how to do it if you don't know much about computers.
The good news is that the process is fairly straightforward.
Turn off your Toshiba laptop and remove the power cable if it is attached.
Close the screen and turn your computer upside down.
Slide the rectangular battery out of its compartment on the underside of the computer.
Turn the keyboard right-side up and open the screen so you have full access to the keyboard. Locate the rectangular plastic frame just above the keyboard.
Insert the top of your screwdriver in the seam at the end of the frame where it meets the side of the computer, and gently pry the frame up.
Remove it from the computer.
Remove the two screws above the keyboard and set them aside.
Lift the keyboard up and unplug the thick ribbon cable where it connects at the back of the keyboard. Set the old keyboard aside.
Plug the cable into the port in the back of the new keyboard and fit the keyboard over the computer.
Replace the screws and bezel, and you're finished.
Hope this helps
