    Hello everybody

    I have a serious problem in my Satellite A300-243. I installed using a CD a driver for external keyboard and after I restarted both keyboard and touchbpad stopped working and taking any order when I reach the vista welcome page.
    What should I do because you know even I cant enter the windows to uninstall that driver.

    Any way to do it while windows starting up?

    Hello

    Why you installed a driver for external keyboard? I never heard about such drivers…

    Anyway, you should try to boot in safe mode and then you are able to remove external keyboard driver from software list. After restarting in normal mode, the touchpad and keyboard should work properly again.

    Hello

    To be honest your posting is a little bit hard to understand.... I think the best option would be reinstall Windows from Toshiba recovery disk or HDD recovery. After this you can test it again and forget the driver for external keyboard.

    Satellite A300-243 belongs to PSAG8E series and therefore you can find all drivers here:
