Have you tried connecting a regular desktop keyboard to your laptop? If so, does the same thing happen?

Keyboards do develop problems, and can usually be fixed by replacing the keyboard. It's not necessarily a virus (actually highly unlikely).

    Very good.



    I would contact toshiba about obtaining a replacement keyboard for your laptop.

    Changing them is fairly simple.

    Pop out the old keyboard, disconnect the connector (one ribbon cable) take the new one, connect the cable, pop the keyboard back in place.



    You can try here to see if they have one to work for your laptop

Hey i have a Toshiba Equium M40X-148 and the screen wont turn on. When i power the laptop up the power light lights up but the screen stays blank. Any ideas on what the problem maybe


If you tilt it to the light, do you see a faint image?

Can you connect the laptop to a external monitor and toggle the FN + F5 key to adjust monitor settings to output to the 2nd screen.

My son's toshiba Satellite L305-S5933 keyboard has just developed some non-functioning keys. Several just don't work any longer. No spillage.


No spillage, has the computer been dropped? the saudering under the key itself may have separated from the button itself. Try a can of 'air' and clean out any loose matter that may be between the keys in the keyboard first. Then if it's still not functioning, try lifting off the key button (one at a time) to see if you can see the direct connection and verify if its still connected. Try the air first. hope this helps.

Toshiba equium m40x won't power up


whats happening is that the cpu is overheating and shutting down the computer due to your fan not spinning, if you wish to test this remove the bottom panel and remove the fan and its cooling tubes should all be one part (quite easy 3 or 4 bolts) and blow on the cpu or put a pedistal fan facing it or any other form of cooling that wont damage it, and try to start it if it boots for a while it is the fan and you will need to replace it, i had this exact problem yesterday
