You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. Then test the keyboard.

If problem persist, check Also the language set on your laptop. Go to control panel/Regional and language, make sure that it is in English.

If same problem persist, uninstall and reinstall the keyboard driver. Restart the NB to take effect.

Note:
The drivers are located in device manager.
For XP: Control panel (classic view)/systems/click hard ware/device manager/keyboard (expand).
For Vista: Control panel (classic view)/device manage/keyboard (expand).
For 7: Control panel (small icons)/device manage/keyboard (expand).

If problem persist, send the laptop for repair. Contact Toshiba, if you're still in warranty to send for repair at no cost. For non warranty, sending it for repair will cost you $175.99.

My email n password dont match, how can I fix it?


The procedure to troubleshoot email account login issues may vary depending upon your email service provider. So, to let us suggest you a specific solution, can you please share with us the name of your email service provider?

In the meanwhile, we recommend you to make sure that all the keys on your keyboard are functioning properly. If one or more keys are jammed or have stuck up, the keys that you hit may not display characters correctly on your login page. Also, make sure that the functional keys like Caps Lock and Nums Lock are On or Off only when required. To make sure that the keys on your keyboard are working fine, you can first try typing your email ID and password on a Notepad or Word Document and see if they come up correctly. If the keyboard is working fine, we suggest you to try typing your email ID and password slowly (if you have not done this already). Also, give special attention to characters like 2 or Z, 0 (zero) or O, 1 or I, 5 or S, 8 or B etc.

If one or more keys on the keyboard have become malfunctional, try logging in to your account through some other device (if you have not done this already) or consider using a different keyboard (if possible).

You can also try onscreen keyboard by press and hold the Windows key and hit the letter R. Type in OSK and hit enter. Try using the onscreen keyboard if the keyboard is not functioning correctly.

My dell inspiron 1100 does automatic press the q button... How do i fix that?


Make sure no key next to it is causing it because the keys are stuck together. Hit the q key repeatedly to unstick it.

It may be time for a new keyboard.

look on ebay for a new keyboard. Just put Dell Inspiron 1100 Keyboard in the search box.

Shift key isn't working properly it is backspace how do i fix this problem


this has been a problem with my "internet navigator logitech keyboard" and when i run the "#keyhistory" script i get these results after hitting
the following keys :

VK SC Type Up/Dn Elapsed Key Window

4C 026 u 0.14 L
4C 026 d 0.11 L
4C 026 u 0.14 L

and as you can see I have two problems with this. One problem is that when i am in an internet browser and i hit shift it acts as Backspace/Back and when i am renaming a folder and i hit shift to use caps it also acts as Back. The other problem is similar with the Caps Lock key, whenever i am in an internet browser and i hit Capslock, the Search window appears and the Capslock function gets activated as well.
I was trying to Remap these two keys but i wasn't successful in doing so,
for the shift key i tried remaping 00_6A and E0_6A to another key and i also tried remapping 00_36 to another key and neither of these two helped.
and for Caps lock i tried remapping E0_65 to another key and it didn't work. I also tried turning off both the shif key and the CapsLook key and their that only turned off their original function but it didn't turn off the backspace or the search functions.

How can fix my keyboard's problem? and what's the cause of keyboard malfunction? The "i" key has not been typing since yesterday. Please help


You can try pop the key off ( use a knife or screwdriver)
There may be some muck/dust stuck under it.

If this does not fix it, the membrane under the keys may be damaged.

Keyboard mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm


Might be a sticky key situation.  If you have patience and a steady hand, you can fix this yourself.  But, you need to figure out if the problem is with just one key, or a couple.  Sometimes, removing the one key that causes the problem and putting it back on again will fix it.  I would type in your model computer in google and look for a tutorial.  Something like http://www.fonerbooks.com/laptop15.htm will help.  If all else fails, it is not too costly to replace the keyboard itself.  (Simple installation, too)

Presario arrow key and return key problem


examine the keyboard for dirt caught under the keys, this maybe diffucult to spot. this is not going to be easy at first, as the problem may lie further and at a more difficult angle, check also for damage to the keyboard and try to find a mechanical solution before suspecting the drivers here, as this looks like it may just be something caught under the keys, or the keys being dragged down together rather than a major electronic foulup.if you find nothing, then suspect drivers. after that, try checking for programming errors.
