The @ is at Alt-Gr + Q
now to change it to spanish you will have to reinstall a spanish operating system. If its a new laptop, with a legal operating system, then i would try to trade it with the manufacturer.

I see that your computer has both an S-Video and Montor connector. Depending on your TV yu should be able to connect thru any of these two. Click on the link below to open the user manual for your Toshiba. http://support.toshiba.com/support/staticContentDetail?contentId=1723795&isFromTOCLink=false Once you open it up look for page 69, Check the area out where it says "Using External display devices" You might alos be able to find your answer from several videos from YouTube, click on link below to show you some videos: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=connect+toshiba+satellite+to+tv+s+video

Check for dust in the fan, The fan in my old Toshiba was noisy too at the start but once up to speed it was quiet. I bought a replacement fan and fitted it. Easy to do as the noise was starting to irritate me.

Check AC power cord, use a different one, also plug into different outlet. If that doesn't work power switch is bad. Or something else is wrong.

When first turning it on press ESC or F10. This should take you to the BIOS screen. In this screen you can choose to reset the OS to factory settings. It is possible you have a rootkit virus or similar malicious bug. If so, a certified tech may need to address the issue.

You can detach the main battery, and leave it for a week. If next week your laptop still has the same problem, then it means your laptop is dead.

Hi Cheryll, Make sure there are no problems with the driver installed on your machine by going to Control Panel->Device Manager and see if there are any question\exclamation marks on one of the drivers. While you are at the device manager you can check the touch pad driver version and update it to the latest from the manufacturer website if needed. To check the driver version double click the touch pad and go to the Driver tab. You will see it under driver version. Also some netbooks got an hardware button to shutdown the Touch Pad. Regards, TheSmacker.

you should have numbers on the keyboard which you can access using the Fn button... you can also use these without the FN button by htting the NumLock button, then use as normal keypad.... other that that try using the Alt button and the Fn with the corresponding digits.So hold down Alt, FN and tap the corresponding digits/letters on the keyboard. If you need to use a numpad a lot, then can purchase a USB numpad - often included with USB kits from gadget shops.

If you have another account on your laptop that has administrator rights, log in into that account and change the password for your account. If you have an administrator account (even if you don't try putting in Administrator and leave password field blank) try using that account to reset the password, otherwise try one of the following:
- see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
- or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
- or if anything else didn't work you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset your password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip
