If your keyboard won't work, then it means you will have to do replace it. But before that, you will have to check first if the keyboard isn't disabled on your PC.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Keyboard.

Select hardware, select your keyboard name, then click properties. Click Change settings, click drivers and check if your keyboard was uninstalled or disabled. If it was disabled, you can enable it.

But if the above isn't the cause of the problem, get a USB keyboard (external keyboard), insert it into the USB port of your Toshiba protege m400 and it should work pending the time you have your keyboard replaced.

Good luck.

Open your system bios setup. Then under the boot options make sure your cd drive is one of the drives enabled in the boot path. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

If there is no hard drive found, there may be an issue with your hard drives firmware, you should check online for any updates then try again.

There are probably not enough Toshiba tablet experts on line to assist you with your problem.
Assuming that you have removed all external devices connected to the device and the battery is fully charged. Batteries themselves have a device inside them that will shut down when they overheat or if you draw to much current from them. I'll assume its not the battery.
When a tablet freezes or locks up, it is either a hardware problem or a software problem. The hardware is harder to fix as it may require looking inside the device at the electronics.
Software is perhaps an easier place to start to prove if it is a hardware or software problem. The software divides into 2 categories. The Apps that run on the device and the Operating System that manages the device and the user queries and the data coming & going.
So, the things that you can try are:
1. Do a complete tablet reset. The buttons you use and the method will be in your manual or find the manual as a .pdf file on line.
This restarts the complete reset & power up of the device.
2. Throw out all Apps that have been loaded since purchase. Then reset & test for fault. Assuming of course that you have a backup of all your purchases (Music, Apps, Movies, Books etc)
once you have done all this you have completed the software side of diagnosing the problem. If still not solved....
3. The hardware may be faulty or bad. If your not qualified yourself to take it apart then take it to a Toshiba dealer for repair or Warrantee replacement. Record it's serial number first.
5. So... like so many other people... you must have bought this machine because of price, Right? I mean, why else would you buy such an obscure brand of Tablet! Because it was cheap you will now pay the price & perhaps realize why so many people buy the most popular & well supported machines on the market. Android devices are for the Tech guys that like to fiddle & don't like Apple's control or price. So if your not in that class the the options are clear. Although expensive, Apple were the first & are the best in their class.
When did Toshiba start making world class Tablets??? Go Figure!

Restart the computer, and force it to boot from the Windows XP CD-ROM. Choose "Repair Existing Installation", and see if that fixes the problem.

It might be better to remove the disk-drive, attach it as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer, and copy all your files onto an external disk-drive.

There should be a little hole somewhere on the tablet. Stick a pin in it then it should factory reset it. Or if you can, create a new user then go to settings and factory reset it from there.
