my girlfriend allways had a problem with her keys, an apple laptop, eventually enter =- and all the function keys stopped working (as well as spacebar), we bought her an external usb keyboard, made the whole world a better place!

yes, you can replace it. Do a google search for "model of laptop replacement keyboard" and find the part number and look for it on ebay. Alternatively, you could contact toshiba and buy one from them.

I think that it was taken apart then put back together and now several keys do not work.

I did a google search (DUH! I should have done that first) and found a few replacements. I'm still waiting on the model # to find the correct part.

Anyhow, thanks for all your help!! Looks like i earned a few brownie points!!!
