Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite P205D-S7479 Notebook ?

"A" Key on the keyboard sticks from time to time.

\015 At times, the "A" key does not work. I need to push it a couple of times for it to work. It has happened since I first bought it. It is very noticeable when playing online games that involve the "A" Key.\015

Answers :

My first thought is to press the manufacturers warranty. If that is gone then the next thing I would do is to replace the keypad. If you search Ebay for the keyboard for this laptop you will find a replacement. Prices I found are in the $57-100 range, but a good internet search is worth the savings.

How to replace Laptop Keyboard

First off, DON'T FORCE ANYTHING

The replacement procedure for the keyboard as with most laptops is not too painful:
1. The strip of plastic just above the keyboard, pry it up with something plastic that the laptop is not
scratched.
2. There should be 2-4 small screws holding the top of the keypad down, remove these and you
should be able to gently lift toward the screen and up. Look for any other fasteners that may be
holding it down.
3. There should be a ribbon cable going from the keypad to the main board with a pinch connector.
Some connectors have end tabs that lift up or slide out to release the cable.
4. Replace with working keyboard reversing the procedure.

Any issues please post back
