Satellite A300 - keyboard does not work sometimes
the boot of my Toshiba Satellite A300 computer laptop keyboard doesn't work sometimes?
After a reboot, everything is ok!
Anyone know why the keyboard does not work sometimes?
On this virtual path, it is not easy to give you a precise answer, especially if it happens sometimes and I think that you need professional help with this.
There may be a connection between the keyboard and the motherboard problem.
I fear, we can only speculate that the problem can be m.
I inherited an A300 of questions.
When you turn on the laptop, the keyboard works at the BIOS level, but once it boots into windows keyboard no longer works. I discovered that by pressing the power button (stop) and then turn the laptop back on brings back the keyboard. (It was in vista).
Since I did a new install of Windows 7 (removal of all partitions on the disk) and the fault remains, I also installed the added value Pack which did not help.
Firmware was 1.6 - updated to 1.9; fault remains. I restored the factory settings in the BIOS - fault remains level.
I installed a copy of Fedora 11 (Linux), that works perfectly.
Thanks for the comments.
To be honest, I use an external mouse only.
I have a Satellite C660 which was working fine this morning. When I came home from work and he turned, the keyboard does not work and therefore can not enter my login information.
The Num and caps lock shift are turned on.
Any ideas on how to solve this problem?
You are able to disable the CapsLock and NumLock?
You can access the BIOS by pressing F2 by turning on the device?
If this does not work, I would recommend checking an external USB keyboard.
If the USB keyboard would be functions, then this means that the internal keyboard is defective and must be replaced.
I have Vista L500 with a dead keyboard. This machine has not been abandoned or anything it is spilled on it. I plugged USB keyboard external that works. The laptop keyboard does not work. I flashed the BIOS, update drivers, held shift for 10 sec (read on another forum), reset computer, check the updates of Windows Vista and ran 3 checks of Virus.
Everything is perfect, just no keyboard?
What should I check? What is a motherboard problem?
Thanks for any help :)
Can enter you the BIOS (F2 key) with internal keyboard?
If it isn't the internal keyboard seems to be defective and must be replaced
I don t think you can do more. I mean you've tried everything what is possible and if an external keyboard works the installation of the OS should be ok.
The keyboard can be ordered and replaced from an authorized service provider. Do you know how to contact the guys?
I did a new install of Win 7 pro 64-bit, and after it does not my fan, not at the start or in Windows. To check if it the fan itself was broken I re-installed Vista instead and the fan worked again!
Installed new Win 7 but now it's silent :( I checked in the BIOS (latest version 1.80) but I couldn't find any option here. Am I missing a driver or something?
My Satellite canned extinguishing because of this, so I would really appreciate help :)

Hmmmm... really strange. I use Win7 32 bit on my Satellite A300-1LI and it works perfectly.
Maybe a stupid question now, but have you tried to use the 32 bit version?
You have also installed all the Toshiba drivers Toshiba value added package (includes the Toshiba power saver tool)?
The web does not work the room, resettled several times drivers is not helping with the list of the facilities in the room is not present.
What should do?

Since when did you notice this behavior and what operating system is installed?
Before install or reinstall a driver, I recommend you to remove the old driver first. Then, restart your computer and run CCleaner to remove old registry keys. A reboot, and you can install latest driver of the webcam of Toshiba page.
Check this box!
I have problem with microphone as it it does not work. Can you tell me the solution my model number of the laptop is Satellite A300...
Thank you very much...
Talk you about internal or external microphone?
If you come in on the internal mic then it could be interesting how you did test you this?
As far as I know the internal mic belongs to the internal webcam. Then, start the webcam software and record a small video with sound.
You can check if the sound wasn't available in this video.
I've recently updated the BIOS to version 1.60 on my PSC0LE C660-02300JEN (1 year) and the keyboard doesn't work well at all and sometimes stops working completely, making it unusable (I write on an external USB keyboard.).
There was a recurring problem, a few months before I updated the BIOS with the strike being delayed or does not respond, sometimes when you type, but for the most part, it still worked.
So I've updated the BIOS, as suggested, and I get the following problems:
The space bar is either not responding or when you press + 2 written or +++ again and again until I stop it by pressing the SPACEBAR again.
None of the numbers works.
Sometimes the entire keyboard no longer works and none of the keys of a reaction.
I tried solutions:
Remove the battery.
cleaning the keyboard to get whatever it is dislodged out under the keys.
Reinstall the version 1.60 of the BIOS.
I'm not sure what to do next and really appreciate the advice and help before I try to get the keyboard replaced. It would be nice to get an opinion before I gain for a fix.
Really welcome responses.
Thank you very much
I think that this problem of keyboard is not related to the BIOS update not to other software.
Is that you can use the external USB keyboard as you said above this means that the BIOS is ok and also the functions of controller keyboard correctly
This means that the problem is related to a malfunction internal keyboard. I have no explanation why this happened after the update, but it could be just a bad luck
In my view, the problem can be solved by the replacement of keyboard.
I install windows 7-64 bit for my Satellite A300 and the micro does not work, but the webcam works.
I downloaded and install the drivers of the webcam of the toshiba site, but the microphone still does not work.
You have any ideas?
What applications do you use with webcam? Maybe Skype?
When you open the sound properties > recording device, which is in the list?
Is listed and enabled it (green check) Microphone?
My new Toshiba A300-201 has a problem. Sometimes it works so well, especially when I listen to music with Windows media player. The symptom is the windows media player does not work ca. 2-3 seconds, and the machine makes a noise loud enough and weird. It is quite often, 15 minutes once.
Did anyone know about this?
You have this problem only with Windows Media Player?
If so, check if you have the latest version and try another player.
In addition it is not easy to say what the problem is. You have installed the laptop with the recovery disk?
Maybe you should check the RAM with Memtest86 and the disk with Drive Fitness Test.
I have a problem with my Toshiba Satellite A300... everything worked well, but there is a day, when I used the laptop it started working and it blocked a few seconds... I tried to turn it on again several times, but it always of the blocks...
I gave the phone to a technician and he told me that, probably, the motherboard is broken and I have to send my computer in the center of Toshiba to fix...
Now the problem is... the warranty period, you are finished... and they told me I have to pay for plu 60/hour, so I have to pay for the new motherboard... I worry I have to pay too much to repair the laptop and I don't know if it is better to repair or buy a new...
What do you think guys? Does anyone know how much may the reparetion cost?
I really like this computer, that's why I didn't buy a new still...
Exact repair costs are the repair center, so I think I contact guys and ask how much it cost + just +. I think Exchange mainboard takes about an hour to have to pay 60 euros/hour + new motherboard.
If you know the exact repair costs, you can decide which is better, but without knowing that it is difficult to say which path would be one that suits
I have a problem with the keyboard of my laptop:
Since I was able to type the password of the BIOS, it should be correct from a technical point of view.
But once having written the pass BIOS keyboard no longer works. It just doesn' react - it is even impossible to hit F2 to open the BIOS menu.
XP / system displays all hardware conflicts.
The laptop do not fall down or something like that.
I bought a USB keyboard, and it worked correctly from the start.
I tried every shortcut I know and a lot I didn't know until now, but it still does not work.
Is there a shortcut XP or Toshiba to disable the keyboard?
Or do you think this could be a hardware problem - but why it should be possible to write the password...?

(1) your bios can recognize an external input device and causing the keyboard not working after giving you access.
(2) remove all other usb devices you have connected (mouse, webcam or other) because they could be interpreted as an external keyboard
(3) if there is no USB device connected and the problem persists... remove your keyboard drivers external usb while you plug it (remove drivers dethrone device) and before you restart your computer, make sure to remove the external keyboard.
(3) you can have a software virus recorder or a keyboard that connects to the interruption of your keyboard.
If none of these permits, try to boot in an o/s different as the knoppix linux that runs directly from cd without need of installation. If your keyboard did not always works, then bring it to support, because the internal flat cable might came down in part.
I have a serious problem with my A60: the keyboard no longer works. I tried many solutions and the last of them, recovery with the Recovery DVD - ROM product does not work, because I can't use the keyboard!
When the screen with the 3 choices, I have no opportunity to respond.
Someone has an idea?
Thanks a lot for your answer.
They keyboard might not be the problem, or it may not be connected properly to the motherboard the best thing to do is to take it to a service center, it should not cost you anything, if it is still under warranty... but if it's just the keyboard and your laptop is out of warranty then it should cost more than 100-200... can't say how much exactly, because I have no idea.
I have a satellite A300 under Vista 32 Bit and there about a week, after doing some updates from Microsoft, the lights behind the keyboard stopped lighting upward. The light for the mouse pad and the media lights are all lit. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you very much
Lighting is responsible for the light of the keyboard.
You could turn on and off lighting in the BIOS as well.
Why you don t access the BIOS and check what's happening if you enable or disable illumination in the BIOS?
Select this check box.
On the other hand, the light button is controlled by a tool that is placed in the VAP (value added package). If the option in the BIOS doesn't help, try to reinstall the VAP.
See you soon
Also sometimes the ENTER key only, not work - I have to click on the built in mouse pad
