Some keyboard keys do not work on my TE2100?
I lost the use of several keys on my keyboard, a few years ago, namely the LTRC, c, n, m, and perhaps others.
I have been using an external keyboard since then.
I have tried to fix this by first buying a new keyboard, which did not solve the problem, and more recently, I replaced the VGA card (that plugs into the keyboard), because I had lost some display features. The display works fine with the new VGA card but the same keys still does not work?
Sounds like a problem that can be solved otherwise?
> I guess that's the motherboard then?
Maybe it's a suggestion, I doubt anyone here would be able to tell what's exactly wrong.
The replacement of mainbaord is really a costly affair. I think that the new motherboard would cost more than the good old classic and in my opinion there s no need to replace the motherboard.
I m not very well how be a new motherboard, but I think that you would need 300Euros and in my opinion, you would get a great opportunity for laptop for the money.
I recently bought a HP Envy m6-1205dx laptop and I have noticed that some of the keys do not work on the keyboard. None of these special keys work under Windows or on the BIOS screen. I'm on my second replacement keyboard, and I'm having the same problem. The main keys that do not work are the 'asdf' and ' jkl: "in addition, the Enter key does not work." The fact that on the numeric keypad. Given that I have trie multiple keyboard with the same result, I have to assume that it is quite something else. Please help, it drives me crazy.
I'm so glad that the solution I provided you with worked!

I've had my laptop for 2 years now and never had any problems before but recently some of the keys on my laptop keyboard do not work as the fn key, i, e, r, t, y, u, i, o, = etc. Currently I use an external keyboard to overcome this problem. I did a complete reinstall but problem still persits.
Can you please perhaps where the problem is. It's very confusing that some keys work well, but some are not.
> Can you please suggest where the problem is maybe.
In my opinion the problem is faulty keyboard. As you can see full OS reinstallation didn't change anything. It must be junk hardware.
Sorry, but I think that the keyboard needs to be replaced.
Sometimes my keys work well, as now. Other times, without having to reboot, some keys like R, Y, 5, 0, do not work when I press them. Sometimes if I press the R key and Y or press them hard, with more force, the R and the Y will appear. Other times, repeatedly tap the R and the is still not get as they appear.
This problem has occurred, it seems, shortly after I disassembled my laptop. What could cause this problem? I think that maybe it's one of the wiring connectors that connect the keyboard to the main unit and not a problem with the individual keys. Should I restart my computer, disassemble the keyboard and attach, internal and 3 cables, it would affect?
What should I try to fix this? Its very annoying having to use the on-screen keyboard to type the keys Y and R when they cease to work temporarily on the keyboard.
It is not easy to give you the correct answer to your question.
Initially we don t know what model of laptop you have and how old it was.
In my opinion the keyboard connector has nothing to do if some keys must be desperate.
To be honest, I think that you need a new keyboard.
Only by using the new keyboard and test features, you will find answer to your question.
I have the Satellite L300D-242, keyboard key 6-7-R-H-B left and right arrow not working not not on Win 7 32 Bit OS. his job very well if I try the keyboard external usb.
My question is if I buy the new keyboard problem will be fix or it's something to do with the motherboard?
If everything is ok with the external keyboard, it seems that a few keys on the internal keyboard are faulty. I agree with Timox and swap the keyboard internal which is very cheap and can be done in 10 minutes.
Do you know where you can order spare parts?
You can do this if you contact an authorized service provider. You can find a list of the guys here:

I have a problem with my P200-144, when I type very fast missing keystorkes, this does'nt be as other keyoards.
Also, my arrow is very steep.
For me this is nothing strange. I have older Tecra M1 and the buttons are flabby. The new A200 (similar keyboard like the P200) it is not the case. The pressure must be stronger than on Tecra and if I type very quickly some keys are missing.
Maybe you must type a little more slowly.

Hello Mr President
I have solved the problem now, I just pulled on the keys ctrl shift alt (left and right) at the same time using the screen keyboard on...
but there are some keys that don't work,
I tried to update driver for the keyboard, but has encountered an error while installing it...
I did also the hard reset but still the same,
Try to go in Mode safe mode with network and retry installation
Start > type MSconfig
Select the secure boot
Select Secure Boot
Click on apply, Ok
Then try to install the driver in safe mode
Have you spent at the manufacturer's Web site and looked for the driver to install manually? Download the driver and save it in your downloads folder. Once the download is complete, close the window of IE. Look for it in your download folder and double-click it to start the installation.
I'll have to double press multiple keys to type. Does anyone know how to solve this problem. Only some of the keys do this. IE: SPACEBAR, @, 4, 1, 2, etc.

Hello! I have a problem with my keyboard in which some keys don't work at ALL. Include, G H Esc F5, up arrow key and the key to brands apostrophe/quote. I did the reset factory, keyboard remove and clean, and I can't understand how to solve this problem. Currently using AutoHotKey to connect the Esc, G and H, but when I want to play a game, these keys do not work.
It would be more helpful if you included the model of your laptop, the operating system you use on it and how long you have owned it.
Generic answer to your question is that the keyboard may need to be replaced, and so you can order the part at Lenovo directly to solve this problem.
Without knowing more details about your computer of specific information has been retained.
See you soon.
I have the Macbook with OSX El Captian 2012 model running. The keys f, g, h, j, k, l will not work. Initially, when I hit these keys several times, they used to work, but now they do not completely work. AHT test ran and it is said that there is no hardware problem. I hit the option 5 times, but it would not have helped either. I noticed when allegedly struck ' key and hold, f - l keys work. Please help me solve this problem. Replacement of keyboard looks expensive.
Thank you for being a part of the communities of Apple Support.
It appears from your message that a line of F to L keys do not work correctly on your MacBook Pro. What I would like to, it's please use the keyboard on your Mac Viewer to verify that the keys are not currently recognized on your Mac:
If the problem persists, please reset your memory NVRAM-How to reset the NVRAM on your Mac- and report with your findings.
See you soon.
I have problems with my Toshiba Satellite recently bought U940-11 X, serial number 2D015354K.
1. at each reboot the laptop my keyboard settings are not accurate and symbols and function keys do not work properly. So it is also not possible to enter the bios via F2 after reboot.
I have to press CTRL + SHIFT to have my keyboard works correctly. I have to do this every time I use my laptop.
2. the touchpad (Synaptics TouchPad SMBus) does not work after a few minutes. The only thing I can do is plug an external usb mouse. I have also tried using FN + F9 does not work.
Please, can someone help me on this?
> So it is also not possible to enter the bios via F2 after reboot.
I see that the laptop using Win 8.
You need to perform a full stop down to access the BIOS.
See this document. It provides information how to change the settings to access the BIOS:
+ Perform a complete shutdown in Windows 8 +.
> I have to press CTRL + SHIFT to have my keyboard works correctly.
Have you checked the presentation of the keyboard settings?
For me, it looks like you are using wrong keyboard layout settings. Using the key combination CTRL + SHIFT changes between keyboard layouts.
How do I change this?
Go to the Control Panel-> regional and Language Options
A click on the "Keyboards and languages" tab then click on "change keyboards" button. Then in the tree "Installed services" list, select the keyboards you don't want and click 'remove.
Hello, installed Win XP Sp3 on Satellite L300D - 21 p - also all drivers available - everything is going well so far - only the keyboard FN keys do not work.
Is anyone here who is able to help?
Thank you very much
Keys FN on Windows XP, you need the tools of Toshiba. Have you installed them.
Here is a short list of what you need, and it worked for me on my Satellite L300:
TOSHIBA common modules
TOSHIBA Hotkey Utility
TOSHIBA Touchpad POWER
You can follow this order of installation and then the FN keys should work.
Good luck! :)
I bought a L300-164 on Monday. However, there is no preinstalled opsys. I installed a Win XPSP2 (HUN) on it and downloaded the drivers from www.toshiba-europe.com.
First I have installed chipset and video drivers, then I installed "common Modules". After you finished and restart I tried to install 'orders', but who says "common modules" are not installed.
So I installed 'save energy' and tried to install it once more the 'controls '. Now, it has been installed normally. Finally, I put on "hotkey utility" and "touchpad utility power. So everything seems to be all right on the machine, but a few FN keys do not work: F6 and F7 doesn't control brightness, F2 is not change power mode and F9 switch touchpad power (of course in a hurry with the FN). However, volume knob works, ESC as the work of mute and Fx buttons also work elsewhere.
Y at - it ideas to make these buttons work?
Sat L300-164 seems to belong to the PSLBDE series, and you must download and use the drivers from the Toshiba European designed for the series Sat L300 PSLBDE page.
Is the common Modules is a key driver that is important for the functionality of the FN button.
I would recommend so reinstall the common modules again!
I have laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro L300-164 30 and I have problems with FN keys do not work: F6 and F7 doesn't control brightness, F2 is not change power mode and F9 switch touchpad power (of course I pressed FN) and I tried to download hotkey on your site but still does not.
When installing the program, I see this window (TOSHIBA common Module not found! put an end to this installer)
Please help me I have 30 laptop Satellite Pro L300-164.
He must choose the Satellite A300 PSLBDE show and install first the common Modules, then software like:
Press the start/stop utility
But the common Modules is the essential software that must be installed first!
