In order to get started I have to enter a date and time (battery which keeps these is worn out) and then a Toshiba password. I can't do this with the existing keyboard because not all keys work, and I only have a limited number of goes at the Toshiba password so don't want to keep trying.
I want to try an external USB keyboard, but I will have to buy one. Before I do this, I want to ask if this keyboard will work straight off without any installation (obviously until I get logged in I can't carry out any hardware installation).
I hope the USB keyboard will show me if it is the existing keyboard which is faulty, or something else, but if I can't use it to get past the first screens then it can't help me with this.
Thanks for any help.
