Windows 7: Toshiba Satellite keyboard not working

Toshiba Satellite keyboard not working

Okay, while searching for the internet, I noticed another individual had a similar issue; but I hope that with my information, you could somewhat point me in the right direction. When I registered, I put in all I could find to help aid anyone who might be able to help.

Anyways, onto the issue. A few months back I, unfortunately tripped over my power cord and spilled an entire glass of wine on my poor laptop. Luckily, my spouse was able to dry it out relatively well, and it booted up perfectly fine. The only exception was, my keyboard didn't really work, and my touchpad mouse doesn't work at all.

I bought a usb wireless keyboard and mouse and recently bought a new keyboard. She installed it, and lo and behold, a few keys still didn't work. Fast forward to today. Without thinking, I reached over and used a few buttons before realizing that a few that weren't working -were-.

Testing it out further, I realized that ALL the keys were functioning! HUZZAH!

Then I shift over further onto the sofa, and the it stopped working again. Annoyed, I had my spouse reopen the laptop to check it's connection, thinking that maybe it wasn't plugged in fully. Alas, it was.

So, I know the keyboard CAN work. I just want to know what might be the causes towards it switching on, so to speak, and switching off. The fact that my touch-pad won't work doesn't bother me, as I do have the wireless mouse (though a rough estimate would be appreciated towards the cost of getting it fixed.)

Thanks for your time.

Don't mean to be a bother about this, but is there any way that I could get an answer?

Hello, and welcome to SF.

I would recheck the keyboard ribbon connection at the motherboard. Next, I'd try another new keyboard. If it does the same thing then there is either a problem in the motherboards electrical supply to the keyboard. Or whoever is doing the repair work may not be getting the keyboard ribbon connected properly.

Also, try replacing the touch pad, it may be causing a short circuit.

Check Device Manager for driver issues.

Hope this helps,
John
