    I have keys coming loose all of the time. Some are worse than others. I have talked to several friends who have Toshibas and they all have the same problem. I have never had a laptop with this issue before. There should either be a recall or Toshiba should send out spare parts for free or there should be a class action suit. This is nothing but a terrible design!

Look in your instruction book. They give the contact information for parts and service. Also, if you visit the Toshiba web page you can have all the necessary information.

In some of their models, the unit has to go back to them for service. When you try to order a new keyboard, they will tell you that type of information.

Sensitive j key


Hello there,

you can adjust sensitivity of your keyboard in Control Panel -> Keyboard.

If this is happening just with the J key, there might be some hardware issue with that(broken key). Try to replace it.

Hope this helps

How to replace your Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 laptop keyboard ?


It's easy to break the flimsy keys on laptop. In order to better protect the Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 notebook keyboard, some friends, instead, use USB keyboard. But if you work outdoors, carrying a USB keyboard is not convenient. You still have to use the laptop keyboard. Once a laptop keyboard stops working, there is no option but to replace it. You can use these steps to replace the Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 keyboard.

1. Take out the battery and AC adapter, unplugged from the wall, enusre the laptop is fully powered off.
2. Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
3. Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find them if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
4. Remove the plastic pieces carefully.
5. Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
6. Disconnect the data cable attachment of the keyboard which will sever all the remaining attachments of the laptop keyboard with the laptop computer motherboard. To remove this cable, you have to just carefully pull it out from the socket to which it is attached. Then you can lift out the entire keyboard out of the laptop.
7. Take the new Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 keyboard out of the plastic and place it inside with the right orientation, attach the data cable.
8. Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
9. If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
10. Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
11. Put the laptop battery back in place and switch it on to check Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 keyboard functionality. If everything has gone according to plan, you should be ready to type away!

You have to remember that once you open up the Toshiba Tecra A2-S119 laptop computer for keyboard replacement, the warranty provided by the manufacturer stands void. We personally suggest that you do it on your own only if you are in a really desperate situation and there is no way you can get maintenance from the manufacturer. I hope this assists you. John

Several keys are not working on toshiba L300


Hello,

the problem is from the keyboard. Open the laptop, detach the keyboard from the laptop and clean it. If cleaning does not solve the problem, it means you will have to get another keyboard or use an external keyboard.

Take care.

How do I replace a broken and stuck key.


Most keyboards can be popped out by pulling them straight out and replacing them by pushing them straight in. If you have several sticky keys, you are better off just buying a new keyboard and replace the entire thing. follow the instructions on the owner's manuel how to remove the keyboard on your machine as they are different. it usually requirer removing just a few screws either from under the machine or by removing the small face plate just below the screen..Again, all laptops are a little different.

Let me know if this helps

Where can I get laptop key?


Ebay is the best place, or a small computer shop that sells used laptops. On Ebay there are several vendors that sell individual keys, however, you may be able to get a good deal on an entire keyboard, then you will have many keys for future mishaps.

Loose keys on keyboard


I had the same problem when i bought my new laptop, I turned it off and forced them back in they are quite hard to get back in. If its an old qwerty keyboard, then it needs replacing, the letters will never type what they should ever again.
