Toshiba Tecra A3 problems - out of warranty
We have a Toshiba Tecra A3's that were bought just over 3 years ago under the LFT scheme (before I got here), and it is having hardware issues now, so I am hoping someone can give me some advice as to either how to repair it, or whether I should just ebay 'spares and repairs' it.
The issue appears to be a) a faulty keyboard (this is confirmed that it is actually the keyboard, as it is from a machine we swapped it out of to get that one working). On top of this, a confirmed working keyboard still doesn't work - which indicates the motherboard is also a problem.
So, how can I repair this cheaply, without having to send it to XMA and pay almost as much as the laptop cost originally for the repair?
Cheers in advance.
