Question about HP Compaq nc6000 Notebook

1 Answer

Keyboard 10 key, digits aren't working, just the symbols

On the "10 key" all the symbols work just fine but the numbers 1 - 0 don't. I tried buying a new keyboard twice, both the wired and also wireless type and both acted the same so I assume something happened in the program, but, I've probably talked to at least 6 different so called computer experts and nobody seems to know how to solve my problem. I have an HP and run windows XP and while I've always done well with everything else this has me baffled. I know just enough to be dangerous so don't really have any idea what else to look for.

Cannot use shift key + number for numbers 1 through 4 and 7 through nine.Cant make any symbols(at sign,exclamation sign).I tried reinstalling keyboard driver,choosing different language,so on and so...


Hi,

You might have a hardware issue with your laptop keyboard. You have at least 2 options:

1) connect a "normal" USB keyboard to your laptop and use it, instead

2) run the On-Screen Keyboard (osk.exe) and access the characters/keys you want from there

Good Luck!

My keyboard is working fine but my enter key or return key as they say and shift key below the enter key isnt working.


If there is a mechanical fault there is not much you can do. If other keys are working then there definitely is a mechanical fault. Some crafty expert has to remove those keys and find out what the problem is. There can be broken brackets underneath or there might be some drops of liquid food congealed underneath the keys. Only the person who will open the keys will find out first.

On the number pad the number 0 does not work, the arrow keys do not function any more. All was fine until the keyboard was cleaned. Multiple keys were hit at the same time and now this is what happened?...


Go buy a new keyboard for less than $10. It is not worth the effort to try and fix. You can take a keyboard apart and clean and fix it, but for less than $10?
Good luck

Keyboard don-t show the correct symbols


Your keyboard setting in Control panel regional and language options is probably set to US International.
This option allow you to create every special character using combined keys see this page for MS instruction>
If you have a localized keybord (Portuguise, Brazilian or else) you can get the symbol corresponding with keys if you configure the exact keyboard instead of US international.
Of course for same language you can configure multiple keybord.
You can also use for every language the On screen Keyboard you get in Start/program/accessories/ accessibility

Recently, numbers 1 to 4 on keyboard won't work.


This is only a --temporary-- solution.
I have the same problem, with only the numbers 5 and 6 working. My temp solution is to use the character map, located at START -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Character Map. If you don't have one, you can do a search to download a free one.
