You would have to exercise extreme caution, so as not to damage any ribbon wires or zero insertion force connecters while dissasembling the laptop.
You also have to protect against zapping any components inside the laptop with static electricity from your body. Ground yourself to a cold water pipe in your house to discharge yourself from any possible static electricity.
I do not know if the issue here is driver related since both the keyboard and touch pad are both not working.
This would indicate a faulty electrical connection between the motherboard and the keyboard pad or a controller failure.
By the way, I will provide you with a link to Toshiba's support web site for this laptop model. The link below is to the pdf version of the owners manual.http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su...ily=1073768663#
