Well some keys really on my well used and trusty laptop which otherwise is in good working order - specifically the Z and caps lock key. So I'm having to c&p from an alphabet on another open window, which is a pain.
So thought I'd have a go at replacing them, which should be fun considering my technical acumen, but nothing ventured nothing gained!
I've got a now discontinued Toshiba Satellite C875-130 in Black Matte Chiclet and have found this site which appears to have what I need:
I agree with Chrissie, Perpetua, get yourself a USB keyboard which will enable to to continue to type as usual, and then consider a replacement keyboard. You might even have a friendly computer engineer local to you who would be able to swop the two over for a small consideration. Most small repair shops are really helpful in these matters!

My Toshiba laptop keyboard didn't take too favourably either when I someone, spilt some e-liquid on it
I managed to order a (new) clone replacement complete keyboard for under £15, and fitting it was fairly straight forward... lots of youtube videos*... normally... or even better if you can get someone else to do it for you (as has been suggested above).
Possible keyboard: HERE for £13, or off Amazon as Lee suggested.
As an immediate work around, and as suggested above a USB keyboard will immediately relieve frustration.
* (The hardest part is knowing which screws to remove from the back)
I can cope with slow joeten as it's still considerably quicker than doing a C&P job and my typing speed isn't what you would call fast anyway!
Never knew such a thing existed and whilst this is probably very elementary technicals to many of you, the fact that I've found it and managed to pin it to my task bar is a fairly substantial achievement in my little world!
Actually I reckon the keyboard is on the way out as the q key has also just gone . . . . . . .
