Make/model would be helpful.

You can normally get replacement keyboards on eBay. Just make sure it's a UK one.

Toshiba what? They must have made 1000s of models.

Shame. eBay is by far the cheapest and easiest place to get stuff like that. An authorised Toshiba repair centre would charge 5 times the price plus 'fitting' which is a 2 minute job.

This video stretches it out to 5 minutes. Really easy:

Nobody can quote a price if you don't give a model. It's on a label underneath if its not on the top.

What exactly do you mean, the actual key is broken or it won't type with that letter ? You can buy keys separately for a couple of pounds, again Ebay is the best place.

Read this and find the correct key on Ebay. Yours seems to be a Toshiba Equim but don't see one for your model, though one for a different Equim may well fit. If you email the seller with the make and model they will let you know if they have the particular key you are after usually will come with retaining clips.

Have you tried just pushing the key back on if the clips look ok .... you have to be be fairly firm with it.
