Keyboard trouble - the saga continues

Thanks to those of you who replied to my earlier messages ("Keyboard
trouble and uncontrollable cursor" and "Help! (please read)") ...

At the moment, there seem to be two possible courses of action:

(1) switch off the *microphone function*; or
(2) update my *keyboard driver*.

Re: (1), I can't seem to find the place to do that. As I mentioned in
another post, I've located the place to adjust the settings, but I
can't see to find anywhere where I can turn it off.

Re: (2), I have a feeling that a new driver may be the key. The
keyboard is no longer registering any input. But I'm just not sure
where to get a new driver.

Any help on either of these would be much appreciated!

Thanks.

If the keyboard is no longer registering input at all, then do as was
suggested and contact tech support for your machine. IIRC, you have a
Toshiba laptop. It sounds like you have a hardware problem and no
amount of tinkering with software settings (drivers, turning of mike,
etc.) is going to help.
