Frustrating Keyboard Malfunction (HP Compaq NC6000)

Hi

I own a Compaq NC6000 which is fairly old. It used to work just fine until 2 years ago when the Hard Disc crashed on me. After not using the machine for 2 years I replaced the HD with a brand new one and re-installed XP Pro along with the SP2 and all the drivers required to run the machine. The machine runs just fine.... for the most part:

The keyboard is behaving very badly and jams up on me the moment I try to type something. It repeats a letter I have just typed until I hit the Esc button to stop it (which might or might not work). Sometimes the keyboard does not work all together. It basically behaves very erratically. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers for the pointing devices and the quick launch buttons which did not help.

Any idea what the problem might be? And is there any easy way to fix it? I would hate to have to discard a perfectly good machine. Please help!!!

Regards
-V-

    As it turns out it's a hardware problem. The built in key-board is faulty / broken. It works just fine with an external one. Thank you.

What the solution of laptop hp compaq nc6000 when turn on won't start up


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:http://www.ifitjams.com/lappower.htm

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

Hi,these particular brand of Hp series is very problematic,try checking the Ram out,its usually underneath the keyboard,so if you have two installed try using one at a time to boot system,if problem persist have an I.T Technician look at it.

This is the service manual for your laptop....
If you hold down the Fn key....lower left on keyboard., and look at the top of the keyboard and look for the "F" key that has the symbol of the sun or a light on it, that is the "function" key and when you hold down the Fn key tap the appropriate function key and that changes the value of what you want.

Compaq nc6000 laptop wireless connection


Wireless connection? If so, make sure the wireless device is enabled on the newer one. If it's a red light, the wireless device may be faulty. If so, just get an external USB wireless device and use that. Check to see that the same lights are on with both PCs.

My keyboard does not work on my NC6000 , I havee googled the error and found it to be a common error corrected by taking the laptop apart and tightening the screw next to the fan for some reason this helps...


This might sound obvious, but try removing the keyboard, and check to see if the ribon cable is connected. I just purchased a used nc6000, and had no response from my keyboard. 2 screws on the back, and 4 little plasctic tabs between the f keys at the top. The tabs just slide down. Hope this helps.

Compaq Presario C700 keyboard malfunction


What's your Operating System.
If you haven't tried it shutdown the computer then restart it.

I would restore the system to an earlier state.
In Windows XP you would go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore
Follow the Directions and pick a restore date before your problem occured.

This should work.

Since you say that your mom's user works fine with the original keyboard, you can create a new user copy your files to that user and get rid of the old one.
