This laptop is only about a month old and te keyboard is very slow and often skips letters. I searched around and it sems to be a common problems with Toshiba laptops. I can remove the battery and it helps but the problem comes back. I saw on theforums that there was a fix for other models - will they work for he L745?

I contacted Toshiba support and they had me remove the battery, unplug, startup with F2, F9 (reset) and F10 to save - seems to fix it for about a day. If I do the exercise once a day it seems to help. So - will I ever buy a Toshiba laptop again? I don't think so.

first, I too own an L745 and have had similar keyboard problems. I am pretty disturbed bout how Toshiba is not addressing this problem.
No brainer problems like this in Windows is the reason that I changed over to Mac two years ago for 99% of my computing. I mean REALLY... if you cant fix your keypboards, you're worthless.
That said, here's a partial fix that restored my use of the bad latters tht were screwing up.
Goto Control Panel/Keyboard and set your SPEED slider to the LEFT completely. Hit APPLY.
Somehow this restored my bad keys 99%.
Still problematic but now I am less inclined to toss the laptop out through my window!
