toshiba satellite keyboard stops responding


When the keyboard locks up, does ext. mouse still work? How about the touchpad? If you unplug the mouse, does it straighten up? Does it happen on battery or on AC or both? Can you factory-restore and try without plugging anything else into it? STRICTLY laptop key/pad setup. See if that still hangs. If so, update Vista fully and then try again the next day. If STILL same problem, I would be looking into a new laptop because there's something haunting that one... .....seriously though... I can't think of any FACTORY setting conflicts that would just 'appear' out of nowhere to account for this problem. (except perhaps a 'sleep mode' or 'hibernate' attempting to activate?) IF a full restore doesn't straighten it out, bearing in mind you do NOT use/install ANY external devices (for testing purposes and for right now - printer included) I would lean towards something on the mb not right.

(Special Thanks to 78gremlin for his, as always, helpful input.)

no it varies and today when i started her laptop and it was just sitting at the login screen waiting for her to type in her password.it only sat for maybe 10 minutes and she went to type her password and nothing, no keys worked,the usb mouse works,its allways plugged in when she uses it. i did a complete restore allready and that didn't help. do you think its the keyboard controller as i do?

Possible. Look on craigslist for a copy of win7.
That might fix it. I hate vista....

better try to reinstall with fresh OS first, try to remove the vista & install win 7. or you can also try any other OS like linux using booting CD. you don't have to be familiar with linux, it just for testing if the keyboard works on other operating system. I will suggest you to try Ubuntu Linux Live CD. Just donwload, burn it to a dvd, boot from the dvd, and try your keyboard
