Many computer users do not realise how easy it is to replace worn or low-visibility keys on their keyboards. Replacement Toshiba NB100 keyboards are readily available and can be easily installed by anyone with some technical ability. However, a simpler and less expensive alternative is to purchase replacement keyboard stickers, which come in a variety of colours and designs including large print and "glow in the dark" keys.

Call your local computer repair store and ask them to order a new keyboard for your Toshiba NB100. The keyboard costs less than £26.00 and is easy to install. When the store notifies you that the keyboard has arrived, take your Toshiba notebook computer to the store and ask them to replace the keyboard while you wait.
Install a new keyboard yourself, if you are technically inclined. Remove the two screws under the computer that fasten the keyboard and pry off the bezel using a credit card. The "bezel" is the strip that is located directly above the function keys. The keyboard comes off easily. Carefully unlock the ribbon connector and pull the ribbon and keyboard out of the connector. Replace with the new keyboard by repeating the above steps in reverse.
Purchase replacement keyboard stickers for under £13 as a simple alternative to replacing the keyboard (see Resources). These come in a choice of colours and fit most computer keyboards. Peel them off and stick them onto your keys. You can replace the entire keyboard or only the faded letters.
