Normally on most Tosh notebooks there is at least one screw that holds the keyboard in place from the underside of the notebook, once that is removed there are either small retaining clips that can be gently pushed with a small plastic tool of some sort or the plastic bezel above the keyboard clips off and there are screws under that...

I cant find a decent enough picture of this model to give you a definitive answer but I'm sure the above info will help.

I have a toshiba sa40 some of the keys on the keyboard do not work.

You have a bad keyboard, which probably happens to this model because the keyboard connector cable gets folded (by design) and over time, well .... that did it. To get at the keyboard, remove the power button cover above the keyboard (lift up), then remove the 3 screws holding the keyboard down (Left, center, right), then you'll be able to get the model number of the keyboard to look for a replacement. It shouldn't cost over $20 on eBay.

Touchpad on Toshiba WIreless Keyboard PA3705D does not work. Help

I have the Toshiba PA3705D-1ET1 keyboard.
I experienced the same thing: keyboard working, but not the touchpad. I reinstalled all drivers that I could think off, but nothing helped. What actually did work for me was: remove the batteries of the keyboard for 10 seconds, then put them back in (while PC is turned on). Also ensure that the batteries are full and that you are in range of your PC (let's say less than 4 meters).

S510 Keyboard Problem, Keys Dont Work, Everything Else Works,Ect-Mute

I had the same the problem. The cause was a corrupted encryption code. That is why only worked the keys that don't require encryption.
1) Install the Logitech software and restart.
2) The software will tell you to press CTRL-ALT-F12. This procedure resets the keyboard encryption and tells you to enter a new code.
3) If you already had the software installed simply press CTRL-ALT-F12 and follow the above procedure.

Microsoft wireless keyboard 3000

Once I take the keyboard apart, and brush off the 3 plastic layers underneath the keyboard, it works fine.
There are 14 screws on the back that you need to remove, a couple of them are hidden underneath warning / instruction stickers so you have to feel for them and cut the stickers off with a knife.
