If the keyboard is not working properly, first try a USB keyboard as it may be a driver issue.
If the USB keyboard works, you probably need a replacement keyboard.
Have a browse in ebay for keyboards.

Right and left click do not work, space bar slow


Hi

As you said that the Right and left buttons are not working as well as the space bar, then it could be the issues with some dust particle inside the keyboard.
Try to clean it. Try to use it hope it will work , but in case it don't work then you need to replace the Keyboard.

In case if you have any more trouble do contact back in Fixya.
Thank you

HOW DO YOU GO TO THE BIOS SET UP?


Put your system on for the first time after a second press (F2 ) keyboard button immediately. Bios setup will display, if it didn't work out then off the system again and restart after a second press (F9 ) keyboard button immediately,Bios setup will display.

On my Toshiba Satellite Laptop I have opened and started the computer but can't get past the sign in window because my enter key and space bar won't respond. I can type letters but can not enter...


> hardware problem or software or keyboard?

Experiment #1: turn the computer off. Connect a USB keyboard. Turn the computer on. Use that keyboard to try the 'TAB' key (to move from field-to-field). If TAB works, then try using the SPACE or ENTER keys.

Experiment #2: turn the computer off. Turn the computer on, and look for the message:

PRESS <blah> to ENTER BIOS SETUP

When you see the message, press the <blah> key. On the BIOS SETUP menus, try the ENTER key to "select" a field, to prove that the ENTER key works fine.

Experiment #3: Turn the computer off. Disconnect the AC power. Remove the battery.
Remove the disk-drive. Take the original CD/DVD disk, and start to install Windows to the disk-drive. As you work through the installation screens, you'll need to press ENTER at least once,
if only to acknowledge that installation cannot proceed, because the disk-drive is not connected.
If the ENTER key works, it works.

Experiment #4: Like #3, but connect a different, empty, disk-drive, and reinstall Windows.
If it completes, then your "original" setup has a SOFTWARE problem.

Left side space bar does not work


The space bar on any PC is a single button you may need to make sure your keyboard is clear of any debris If that doesn't fix issue you will probably need to replace keyboard which is very easy to do. techsupport@grindstaffscomputerservices.com

Have you tried reducing the repeat delay and increasing the repeat rate? This sometimes help if you type too quickly for your keyboard.

If this doesnt solve it, the BIOS sometimes has a setting Typematic rate this can be adjusted to increase keyboard sensitivity too.
