Hello,

It sounds like you have a space bar that is stuck in the pressed position.

First, I would try cleaning with compressed air. This can be purchased at most any retail store in the electronics department. One you have it, just clean around each key as good as you can.

If that doesn't work, you can try to remove the keyboard so that you may be able to clean it better. Below, I have listed a site with instructions for removing the keyboard and also a site that has cleaning suggestions.

This site also has pictures to help you along.

Keyboard Cleaning suggestion site:

This site list cleaning suggestions under the Product Knowledge section. I would only proceed as far as you feel comfortable in these instructions.

Thanks

    Hello,



    I forgot to mention, the site that I gave you earlier, http://www.sunvalleyus.com/ToshibaKeyboa... also list a possible replacement at the top. Just make sure that your model, which can be found on the bottom of the laptop usually on a silver sticker, is listed in the Compatible with the following models: section.



    NOTE:

    This is not a recommendation of this product. It is only one of many possible choices available.



    Thanks

Windows XP Professional, can't log in, try to type


Which model of laptop ?

Nearly every device in your computer system can be turned off and on by accessing the Windows Device Manager with a few clicks of the mouse. It gives you plenty of flexibility and allows you to customize your computer on a whim. The Device Manager will allow you to enable your factory keyboard and mouse and disable your current ones, effectively resetting them to the default settings

Make sure that your default mouse and keyboard are plugged into your computer. Click on the Windows "Start" button in the lower right corner of your desktop. Type "Device Manager" in the "Start Search" box. Click "Device Manager" under "Programs." Click "Continue" if the Windows permission window pops up. Click the "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the default mouse and click "Enable." Switch to your default mouse then right-click your other mouse and click "Disable." Click "Yes" in the warning popup window. Unplug the other mouse. Press the "+" next to "Keyboards." Right-click your default keyboard and click "Properties." Click the "Driver" tab then click "Enable." Click "OK." Right-click your other keyboard and select "Properties." Click the driver tab then click "Disable." Click "Yes" in the permission window then click "OK." Your computer is reset to the default keyboard and mouse.

Problem with spacebar key


I don't quite understand why this would happen after pluggin in a USB mouse - but I've seen it numerous times after a liquid has been spilled on a keyboard.

Sounds like you need to replace the keyboard. Best way to test this is to plug in an external usb keyboard and see if you can type normally on it.

If the laptop keyboard exhibits this behavior, and the external keyboard doesn't - you should replace the laptop keyboard.

My cursor on my HP doesn't work. don't want to use a mouse.


i'm sure that there's a button to lock the trackpad,it's near the panel.you need to press it once again to turn the panel on
I think it's right above the trackpad
or look on your laptops keyboard for a picture like trackpad press it with the function Fn button at the same time
or it should be the hardware
the trackpad cable maybe doesn't installed properly,not locked or something

I have a Toshiba LapTop Windows 7 My granddaughter pushed keys and now i can't get the cursor to move. I have tried shutting down and it is still frozen in the middle .


Are you using the trackpad to manipulate the cursor, or are you using an external mouse?

If you're using the trackpad, it may be as simple as using the Fn keys and the corresponding F keys at the top of the keyboard to enable the trackpad feature again. If that doesn't work, try plugging in an external mouse via USB port to see if that works.
If you're using an external mouse, then try to see if the cursor moves while using the trackpad.

Hopefully one of these options will give you control back over your cursor again.

Cursor moving erratically


Sounds like your internal mouse maybe be malfunctioning and due to the pressure on the spacebar is causing the erratic movement.

To fix this you can enter your BIOS with the F2 key at startup.

Continue through until you find some input options to disable the internal mouse.
