Toshiba Satellite a105 new keyboard

  1. I have a toshiba satellite a105-s4094. I recently installed the new keyboard, and now I'm in a world of hurt.

    The mapping is now all screwy. Some keys work and some don't. Pressing some keys causes the keyboard to register multiple keys. I think it's a problem with the driver but I can't find an updated one to install. I can't even figure out how to install my old one over again. One other thing - the keys that don't work, when i press them the light on the power button blinks off.

    Any ideas?!

    Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc -> OK

    Expand the plus sign and remove the keyboard

    You may also go to Add/Remove programs (in Control Panel) and remove any installed keyboard managers (Microsoft?)

    Restart, and allow Windows to set up the newly found keyboard again.

    Test (in Notepad usually)

    Mind you, this could be a faulty keyboard

    I had to uninstall and reinstall about 10 times but the keyboard finally works. Thanks for your help!
