    Toshiba laptop - replacement keyboard

    Anyone know a good source for a replacement keyboard? A couple of keys are missing from an old laptop and figure it can easily be replaced.

    My options are .. order from overseas (usual shops in Wanchai comp center don't have them) or find a source in HK.

    Model - P25-S607

    My Toshiba A200 Satellite is new within the last year- bought in Canada.

    I am all of sudden having it type the letter W all on its own. I will show a sentence that is not edited to demonstrate.
    This is what hwappens when I type a sentence wand not ediwt it wwwand wwhat happens if I pause in the middle to think of what I want to type next - wwww - the pc types all on its own.

    I lifted the W key and can see nothing.
    Toshiba is closed for the holiday and maybe it is a quick fix ...any idea for a good shop? Island or Kowloon is fwine.

    wwwwwwwww

    wwIt seems to be typing even before while it is in start up mode so the key must be the issue.

    tap the key a few dozen times .... chances are its stuck and a few taps will loosen it up.

    Thanks, I tried all the techniques including turning it upside down etc etc.

    I didn't get maxwonga's message until later so it is at Rich Computer & Services, Wan Chai Computer Centre where the verdict is it needs a controller which requires a new keyboard. Total Cost $1,850hk.

    I have my wife searching to see if it is still on warranty. If so, I will get it over to the Toshiba rep in KLN Bay.

    Not unhappy with Rich Computer guys. They seem to be good as well as service oriented. I had spoke to them the day before and he had suggested going to Toshiba so I took it to them for a check as Chevalier's didn't pick up the phone Saturday.

    I might just let Rich fix it and not bother with the hassle of taking it to KLN Monday rather than just be getting it back Monday fixed when the part arrives.

    Thanks again.
