Satellite Pro C850 keyboard does not work properly and opens several programs

My satellite pro C850 1HE keyboard intermittently stops working correctly, and begins to open programs, for example, by pressing F will open the file search, C open computer this kind of thing

is there a permanent solution to this problem?

This is not something to do with installed programs is not something to do with the browser settings.
restarting the computer works in a short time, but that is a long time, it's really annoying because I use this for work and study!


> is there a permanent solution to this problem?

The question is what causes this problem? Is it related hardware or software related issue?

Why n t connect a USB keyboard just to check if the same would happen?

In case the USB keyboard would work fine, I guess that the internal keyboard failures and the solution would be a simple replacement of the defective part.

  • Satellite Pro 6100 keyboard does not work properly after repairs


    My 6100 Pro Sam just being away from usual mother board and power Board replacement with Toshiba, but now I have a strange keyboard problem.

    When I turn it on, all the keys are working. After a few minutes, '3' is not working, then 'r' fails, then '5', ' 7 ', ' 8',' 9 ', ' 0' to stop working. At this point, I can feel something very hot under the middle of the keyboard. A reboot and no keys work. Another reboot with the internal keyboard and an external keyboard to the PS2 is still defective (some keys work, others do not), but the outer one works properly.

    Now, if the pc has not obtained if hot as the middle of the internal keyboard, then, I would conclude that the keyboard was defective, but for his failure, slowly and sequentially like this and it fails at the same way every day (since Toshiba rebuild it!).

    Perhaps, internal keyboard controller overheating?
    Anyone know what this could be? :-(

    See you soon,.

    Right under the keyboard of your pro 6100 is the VGA graphics controller (the keyboard cable plugs on the same map). It is normal that this part become hot during use.

    It is strange that your problem appears after a while and not immediately.

    It could be just a bad relocation of the keyboard cable (it's a thin layer as a movie negative photo) which easily appears there, but... it may be something more serious, too. (Especially since you had done upgrade where the material had to be changed)

    I consult the service centre once more and ask for instructions how to deal with this. Do not ignore it (using an external keyboard instead of internal dysfunction) because he could end up in something more serious soon...



    P.S. Please keep us updated on your efforts

  • Satellite Pro M10 - infrared does not work properly


    I have a Satellite Pro M10 and my infrared does not work. I downloaded the zip file with the drivers from this site. Then, I uninstalled and reinstalled, but it always happens in the Device Manager under "unknown - SMC IrCC - Fast Port infrared (IR Module: HP). (with an exclamation point). When I look at the properties it says under device status:

    This device does not work properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

    Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

    However, under Driver Details is said:

    I extracted the zip file in my home directory of c:\downloads\infrared.
    whatever I do, it does not now. It worked when I bought it, but I have too many things on the system for a new installation. Which brings me to another question. Is it possible to re - install windows without losing all your data, etc.? I did it with other systems (95,98) Windows. But it seems that the Toshiba recovery disc means any wiping.

    Thanks in advance for any help.


    If your HARD disk contains two partitions and you have saved the data on a second you can reinstall the operating system on the first partition using recovery DVDs.

  • Premiere Pro CC 2016 does not work properly and I can't go back to the last working version?

    Everything was fine so I've upgraded to the latest version (2016.3?)

    The reading was nervous or uptight altogether and vomit constant errors.

    I use first commercially and only can afford to be in any way buggy.

    I started the next version down again (2015) which seems actually much earlier than 2016 previous version I had used successfully? 77

    Now all my projects will not open because they were modified in a newer version!

    I'm on a dv7 HP ENVY which worked without problems on all other versions of first CC for more than two years.

    I've seen others complain how buggy the last CC is which is very disappointing for a commercial tool paid that I relay on so many things.

    At this point, I would be happy to know how to install 2016.2 and not in 2015. It worked well for me on 2016.2 & I have no confidence in 2016.3

    Thank you

    Is there a way I can go back to instead of 9.0 9.1? The CC app does not give me this option?

    You go back to 9.0, then download/install the 9.1 patch:

    Some keys on the keyboard on our Satellite C850 - 1 c 4 have stopped working. For example, the Q, W, R & T works but not the E? Any suggestions we can do to fix it?

    Steve - Hull.

    > Some keys on the keyboard on our Satellite C850 - 1 c 4 have stopped working.
    In case the USB keyboard would work correctly, the problem is related to a malfunction of the internal keyboard and the solution is simple: the defective part (in this case the internal keyboard) needs to be replaced.

    This can be done by the Toshiba authorised service provider available in your country.

  • Satellite L30-114 keyboard does not work properly


    My Satellite L30-114 lost there head yesterday, he started typing 4 instead of the letter U, 5 instead of I have letter suddenly. I checked his English language page layout. No viruses were detected in my PC.

    How can I fix this weird problem - I can't type anything!


    Just, without panic. There is no problem at all. Of course, you have accidentally enabled symbols that appear as small gray symbols to the part of the keyboard. If you look closely, you'll see paved digital buttons as U-4, I-5 and O-6. You can enable/disable this by using the FN + F11 key combination.

  • Keyboard does not work properly


    I had trouble getting my laptop satellite to initialize. Recovery disks & pressing F keys weren't working so I decided to open the laptop to see if there are any loose connections. To my surprise, the laptop seems to work again once I had the USB keys and put back them in! Unfortunately, before that I did, I opened the keyboard and peeked inside.

    When I booted up and tried to use the keyboard keys half of their work and the other half seem to think that they represent two other keys for example if I type the letter 'E' I get '3' and '-' as a whole. After 5-10 minutes the entire keyboard will become totally unresponsive until I restart again. Of course, I think I've done something here because this problem since I opened the bottom of the keyboard. This could be a hardware failure I have caused or is anyway that this issue can be resolved without replacing anything?

    Thank you very much


    Hi Tom

    Theoretically, it might be just a connection lost between the keyboard and the motherboard, but I'm afraid, it can be a serious problem of m.
    Maybe you have damaged the connector of the keyboard cable or something similar, and not the keyboard does not work properly.

    I think the keyboard needs to be replaced to check if only this part is affected

  • Satellite Pro L300 - sound is not working properly

    Hi all!

    Last week, I bought my Toshiba Satellite Pro L300.
    I have had no operating system with the laptop, but I had my own XP, so I changed the SATA drives in compatibility mode and installed windows XP Pro.
    (By the way this is a Vista laptop officially)
    I installed all the drivers, but I have a problem with the sound. It has a bad quality, but this isn't the biggest problem.
    If I start listening to music, the sound stops every 3-4 seconds for a fraction of a second. It's as if the processor worked (like the computer was loading, and the processor is a bit overloaded) I usually have this experience if I run many programs simultaneously on my old computer, it slows down and the music stops for a second. But on the new laptop, I run winamp, I have dp nothing but listen to the music, and I get this problem.

    Can anyone help? Is it because of XP? Or the driver does not work properly? Or I have a big problem and should go back to the store?
    Please write!


    Did you notice HARD drive activity when this happens?
    Maybe some anti-virus works in the background.

    Maybe you can order original Toshiba recovery DVD for your laptop model. Check it out under the

  • Satellite L775 - mouse pad does not work properly

    I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite L775. I run Win 7 Home Premium. My mouse pad does not work properly. I also have a Logitech Anywhere MX wireless mouse. I tried the mouse pad to work properly with the key FN and F9, but it does not work. And you really have no idea if that turns or out of the mousepad anyway, subj for another time I guess.

    What does not work, but I have to do is to go to Control Panel then mouse option load that and just scroll the tabs without changing what each time and then close and the touch pad works. But only for this session. If I have my laptop nearby, or turn it off, I have to start throughout the whole process.
