    Hi Guys,

    New to this Forum, can any one assist us please

    Our daughter decided to give keyboard a clean with a duster but this was whilst switched on and now certain letters when keyed perform other functions e.g the letter t brings up the same function as f7. The letter o,e and l also do different things meaning you cannot do anything without huge interuption.

    Any ideas chaps . . .?

    Thanx

    Tim

    Hi

    >The letter o,e and l also do different things meaning you cannot do anything without huge interuption.
    Does this mean that keyboard buttons T, O, E and L don’t work as it should even you typing slowly?

    I have no idea why this happened after trying to clean the keyboard but possibly some keyboard buttons are damage.
    The problem is that you cannot remove/replace single buttons and it seems you will need to replace the whole keyboard.

    Good luck

    Hi
    Thank you for your reply, the keys seem to work fine. It is just they seem to have been Re-Assigned to do something else like the function keys?

    As you type a letter, say " T " for example on goole as you would type "T"oshiba T would bring up the same as F7 would bring up, then close that window and the letter "T" is there?

    . . . if that makes sense . . . ?

    For me it makes no sense…
    Even though the keyboard buttons can be pressed properly, I agree with Paupau…
    It could be an keyboard malfunction… even if I don’t see any connection between keyboard cleaning and this issue…

    However, check how the notebook works using an external USB keyboard for example…

    Hi
    Yes we have connected a USB keyboard to the laptop and it works fine!
    I think I will contact Toshiba, as I think aswell it could be a dodgy keyboard?
