toshiba satellite keyboard stops responding
hello,i have a toshiba satellite a205,when i start it up for the first time each day the keyboard stops responding within the hour and no keys work,so i have to shut it down and reboot. then usually no more problems the rest of the day.

Hi and welcome to the foprum.

More input please. What OS? XP? Vista? Win7?
How long has this been happening?
Have you recently installed anything new?
Do you have external mouse and/or keyboard? to test for malware, it could be virally related.
Try antivirus scans as well.

thanks for the welcome.i have windows vista.its been going on for months now and i even wiped the harddrive and reinstalled everything from recovery disks but it didn't help,oh and she uses a wireless mouse with usb dongle

Remove USB mouse and or keys and boot it up. If it does not do it, then the mouse could be the culprit.
What brand mouse is it? I use Logitech myself. Let us know what happens, ok?

Of course, since it's vista....... well, you know....

yep i want windows 7 lol, its a newer logitech mouse and keyboard combo.ok will do but it won't start acting up again until tomorrow it allready performed its trick for the day but we'll let you know,thanks

so.... the REMOTE keyboard stops working? What about the keys on the machine when this happens?
Do they still work correctly?


jnjw 06-12-2011 07:22 PM

no,she only uses the mouse part of the combo and uses the toshiba keyboard.its the laptops keyboard that stops working.i was thinking and could it be the logitech software causing the problem?

DangerMouse 06-12-2011 07:40 PM

Did it require an install from a cd? They're usually PnP.


jnjw 06-12-2011 08:02 PM

we did use the disk that came with it. actually im going to uninstall the software and just use a usb corded mouse and see what really thinking it might be hardware like a keyboard controller maybe

DangerMouse 06-12-2011 08:08 PM

That's what I would try first off. Sounds like a Vista/software conflict problem.

Go figure.... :laughing:


jnjw 06-12-2011 08:11 PM

we'll see so far so good

jnjw 06-13-2011 07:03 PM
