The delete key (not the one on the num.) of my HP Probook 45304 is not working


Delete is not the same thing with Backspace. Go before a word you just typed and hit delete. It will delete TO THE RIGHT of the cursor not to the left !

Cursor problem,Automatic deleting problem


it sounds like your mouse is highlighting your text automatically. try disabling the trackpad and using a wireless mouse, if that solves your problem then you can adjust the trackpad settings to shut off automatically while you're typing.

Certain keys not working on zboard


remove the plug from the back of the motherboard (Purple)
Check the prongs inside of the male connector for damage and/or dirt.
all of those are TX and RX protocols which talk to your machine and send the events back and fourth.
If that does not work, it is due to water inside the mainboard of the keyboard. replace.
