The keys are not synchronised properly. The @ key and the " are typing each others symbol. ie I have to press shift 2 to get the @ symbol and vice versa.

I need to replace a couple of letter keys on my laptop. Where can I purchase them. How much and how easy is the work to replace these keys.?


if your problem is (the keys writing are worn out) then you can neatly write on it, but if the keys (some ) are not working, then your keyboard will not work, even tyou replace the keys...the plastic tracks can be damaged, and only it can be replace by changing the whole keyboard...check out on www.toshiba.com ..if hard to get 1, plug a usb external keyboard

The upper case figs ie @ and " have swopped positions how do i get them back to their right postions


The difference in the @ and " symbols occurs between US and UK keyboards, where UK keyboards have the " symbol on the "2" key and US keyboards have the @ symbol on the "2" key.

Regardless of what physical drawing you have on the keyboard, you can change the actions of the keys by setting up the appropriate US or UK keyboard layout in Windows.

First, determine whether you'd prefer a US or a UK layout. In the US layout, pressing SHIFT+2 will write @. In the UK layout, pressing it will write ".

Now, from the Start menu, select Settings and go to Control Panel. Once there, search for "Regional and Language Options". Under the "Languages" tab there is a button labeled "Details". Press it, and a new window opens with the keyboard layouts. Use the "Add" button to select the keyboard layout you want (English, US or UK, Qwerty - not Dvorak), then Remove your old keyboard layout. Press OK and exit all the screens, you're done.

Hope this helps.

Key @ and " changing place


I have had the same problem before. I found that setting the keyboard to U.S.english caused it on mine, so a good guess would be that you have done the same. Try switching the U.S./U.K. keyboard settings and that might be the solution.
You will find in in the control panel,keyboard options.
I hope this helps

Toshiba Laptop Keyboard problem


My Toshiba Satellite A45 S120 keyboard has a problem, some of the keys are not working. When you type it does noting. Sometimes when you start the computer, it continuously types the letter eeeeeeee. You can hit some keys randomly and this will stop, but if you start a program (eg. ms word) the same thing happens.
