Disconnect the keyboard from the laptop, carefully.  
If you google for disassembly toshiba laptop (model no) you often can find guides.
Most likely, the ribbon thin cable has become disconnected, and could require reseating.
Your other option, is a new keyboard entirely.
Take care, as a broken keyboard is probably marginally worse than a half working keyboard!
try also an external keyboard, to check if that is ok
