    Like when you type, when it gets hot the comp...and you type away, you can feel the keyboard flex and hear maybe the plastic frame just make a bit more noise than it should, meaning not just the keys pressed making noise. Or should it be complete silient other than the key pressed.

    what is normal these days. i dont know if i should get my keyboard replaced or not. I brought it in the toshiba and they said it might be normal with this model.

    also if you can let me know how to get rid of the flexing and make the kb feel more solid. Im sure you dont need to replace the entire kb, I heard some tape under the keyboard would help it? but stick it where?

    Yes, it is normal, some makes more than others. I would not advise trying to pad it out.

    You said tape under the keyboard.

    But how can I put tape under the keyboard. I heard the keyboard on laptops just pull right out from th top? there should be a switch without having to open it up?
