All you should have to do is remove the keyboard strip (the strip of plastic above the keyboard). It might be hard to disengage plastic latches securing the strip - you will need a sharp object to do this. Do not hurry this - you risk bending and/or breaking the strip.

Then, remove two screws securing the laptop keyboard and lift it up from the case. Finally, CAREFULLY unlock the keyboard connector on the system board and pull the cable. Remove the keyboard. Follow in reverse to reassemble.

Try this link. You may only have to start at step 9.

Do you have a replacement already? Chances are you won't find a service manual.

On my toshiba A105 my keyborad dont response y need help please maybey lost de drivers


keyboard doesn't require drivers. Someone was kind enough to post the steps on replacing a Toshiba A105 keyboard, and since I'm lazy, I'll paste the link here so you can use it to check and see if your laptop's keyboard is securely connected underneath.

http://www.ehow.com/how-does_5021575_replacing-toshiba-laptop-keyboard.html

If your keyboard appears to be securely connected, then it'd gone bad - it happens more than you think - and I'd replace it. Best place to buy replacement keyboards (new or used) is eBay, and anything above $15 is a price reserved only for foreign tourists.

If a new keyboard suffers the same fate, then your A105's motherboard is bad - I haven't seen one go bad in this manner before, but I'll mention it just to worry you some....

In the event of an emergency, you can use a USB keyboard with this laptop and they should be pretty available and cheap locally.

Need to replace keyboard


Hi,
I don't recommend to replace the laptop keyboard if you are not very familiar with hardware, though step by step instruction are available in net.
First check whether your laptop is still covered under warranty. If so, search the authorised service provider of your laptop model near to your place. And get the keyboard replaced by them. Sometimes you'll get it for free, if it is manufacturing defect.
Please come back and rate my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification. Thnx
