    Toshib Stellite lptop key not functioning

    Guess which one? I've tried blasting some air into it in case it was debris but that was no good? Is there anything realistic I can try? Can anyone recommend a good supplier of Tosh spares?

    I guess you've tried removing the key and pressing the rubber bit underneath ?
    I've rolled up a tiny ball of paper and put it in the rubber before, i guess the key wasn't quite making contact.

    Replace the keyboard? It's not too difficult to do with the right tools.

    Is it OK with an external keyboard? I only ask as I had exactly the same issue today which turned out to be some sort of malware rather than a physical issue

    Oh, didn't think about that! Too late now, I've ordered a new keyboard and replaced the missing buttons on some teachers' laptops.

    Can I recommend Laptop Battery, Laptop Charger, Laptop Repairs, Laptop Spares and Laptop Keyboard, Laptop DC Jack from Laptopbits.. £19 for a replacement keyboard and it arrived next day.
