Im trying to put my email but they comes another character


Hi,

It is because of keyboard layout . I think it must be set to different language.

I would suggest you to try changing the input method :

To add a keyboard layout for a language

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then clickSearch.)
  2. Enter language, choose Settings, and then tap or click Add a language.
  3. Choose the language that you want to add a keyboard layout to, tap or click Options next to the language name, and then tap or click Add an input method.
  4. Browse the input method list or use the search box to look for the keyboard layout you want to use.
  5. Double-tap or double-click the keyboard layout, and then tap or click Save.

To make a keyboard your default keyboard

To set a keyboard as your default keyboard, follow these steps:
  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then clickSearch.)
  2. Enter language, choose Settings, and then tap or click Add a language.
  3. Tap or click Advanced settings.
  4. Under Override for default input method, choose the keyboard layout you'd like to be your default keyboard, and then tap or click Save.
Thats for Win 8, I am not sure about you OS.

Try the above if the issue persists please let me know what is the OS ?
Are you getting any other language or its just the issue with symbols.

If you have any video please attach so that I can help you better.

Re toshiba techra 8000


Some laptops have a touch pad between the keyboard and the edge of the laptop. This works like a mouse except you slide your finger around the pad to move the mouse pointer and the buttons next to the touch pad are the left and right buttons.
Other laptops have a small round button in the middle of the keyboard which is a mini joystick and it is used to move the mouse pointer around, it will have a couple of mouse buttons at the botom edge of the keyboard.
You can connect a normal mouse to your laptop, it is mush easier than using the laptop's touch pad or mini joystick.

I have a Stow-N-Go Wireless optical mouse, And everything installs right, and the mouse buttons work. but the mouse doesnt move.


You may need to try and hit "reset" on the bottom of the mouse.
Make sure your mouse is clear of any electronics as well as this can interfere with the mouse's signal to the laptop.
You can try and reinstall the drivers then restarting the laptop.
But it seems to me all you need to do is reset the mouse.

Cursor only moves left to right


This device is monitored via a kind of strain gauge; that is why it does not seem to move; it does move but not noticeably.
If it is no longer responsive in one or the other direction, I would call it dead.
I have never seen one of these loose but I would expect to find a small sealed housing that has an equally small, multicontact connector attached.
If you are unlucky, Toshiba may have attached this to the keyboard's platform requiring the replacement of it as a unit.

On most laptops, the keyboard is fairly easy to remove and if you can accomplish that, restoring the truncated joy stick is probably not difficult.
Sorry I cannot give you detailed instructions for disassembly.
