Just rebuilt the machine with a new hd and i'm having some strange keyboard functions.

If I press 'enter' it does the enter function but also adds a #
If I press j it does j]
If I press m it does m'

Any ideas?

Hi

I hope you press the keys very gently. ;)

Does this happen if you typing very fast, or it doesnít not make any difference by typing fast or slow?
Try to test it with external keyboard.

Whoops. Think this is coz I installed it as a standard 101/102 ps2 keyboard. Where do Tosh hide the drivers for the keyboard? Can't find it in the listings.

Sorry but Toshiba and other notebook manufacture donít provide especially keyboard drivers.
The computers use simple common keyboard drivers from the Microsoft Windows OS.

So even if my laptop has 85 keys, I should still use the standard 101/102 driver?

The OS automatically recognizes the right keyboard and use the right driver.
Therefore itís not necessary to change any drivers and if the 101/102 was installed from the begging I see no reason for an driver replacementÖ

For notebook keyboard you donít need any separate driver. Like Markus wrote, standard Microsoft driver is installed there.

Anyway, Portege 4010 is about 4 years old and I will not suspend possibility that there is some mechanical problem.
