There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

Jumping Cursor


If you experience a jumping cursor where it jumps from one line to another, go to this link and download the driver for ALPS pointing device. This is from Toshiba (thanks to them for having the most updated touchpad driver) but regardless of your computer, IT WORKS!!!

After downloading the driver
>Go to Control Panel
>Open Mouse icon
>Go to Advanced Tab
>Click on the Advance Configuration Button
>Mark the following options with a check:
>>disable tapping
>>disable pointer movement
>>disable scroll function
>Click Apply
>Try typing on a word pad

Hi! I think youre probably having a jumping cursor where the cursor jumps from one place to another while typing an email or something. You may got to control panel - hardware - mouse then look for the check box that you can tick on that says "Tap off while typing" and this should fix the problem. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com!

Erratic cursor


It happens with both? Sounds like it may be a driver or motherboard issue.

Check the HDD for errors with Checkdisk (Start -> Run -> cmd -> Ok -> chkdsk /f
Try redownloading the touchpad/mouse drivers from the Toshiba site

Cursor jumps around


Try this software:

http://code.google.com/p/touchfreeze/downloads/list

Touch Freeze will disable the touchpad when you start typing. I have not used it, but give it a try.

Also, your touchpad could be wearing out or a driver reinstall could be in order. My wifes Toshiba had a bad touchpad and the cursor would jump all over the place. I disabled it and she now uses an external mouse. No problems anymore.
