Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Toshiba Portege R100 CTRL Control key

\015 I have a Toshiba Portege R100, it's a 14'' thin laptop. It seems as of the Control CTRL key is stuck. if I press the letter ''S'' the save screen opens. It's that way for all of the short cuts. I am not able to type anything, just letters that don't work with the CTRL key. It's not visibly stuck. Should I just change the keyboard?\015

Answers :

Check under Accessibility Options in Control Panel, and make sure you don't have StickyKeys enabled. If it is not, then yes, the Ctrl Key switch may have collapsed - you can play with it, pop the key off and play with the pad underneath, but you will probably need a new keyboard.
