This problem with my laptop keyboard has been going on for a while now.
Initially I press "s" key, it goes erratic and types "sssssssssssssssssssssss"
Now when I try to log in it wont let me type my password untill its been on for 30mins and the screen saver is activated. Once it lets me on the following things happen:
1) sometimes when i try to open a browser, it opens the properties box of internet explorer instead (then I'll have to start the whole process of re starting and waiting for half hour for screensaver before it types my password and lets me on)
2) It will open the browser normally but then say after 20 mins of browsing, the file, edit etc taskbar only, starts to flicker incessantly and laptop makes booting noises (whatever that is). After that it stops to type and then i'll repeat the whole process of switching off on, wait 30mins for screensaver, then it logs me on and the whole thing has been going on for quite a while.
I had a while back before these problems started spilled oil onto the keyboard around the "s" key which is what I thought might have been causing the problem. But since then I have cleaned the keys, used a wireless keyboard and the problem still persists and its worse now so I dont think the oil is the issue.
basically I need HELP!!! What on earth is wrong with my laptop?
It is a Toshiba Satellite Pro A210 Model no: PSAFHE- 01500PEN
AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile technology and vista
Does anyone have any solutions to sugest please?
