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!

Certain keys on my key board aren't working like C , S, V , M


Replace the keyboard that most generally means liquid has been spilled on it at 1 time. They run about $20 online. You can try an external USB keyboard to verify thats what it is b4 you order a new 1.

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.

I am trying to find a keyboard layout so I can take the keys off and clean them. Do you know where I can download a picture or instructions for doing this. I have a Dell Inspirion 1525 Laptop. Can you help...


You can view (or download) a service manual at Dell's site here. It shows how to remove the keyboard, which will make working on it much easier for you and will prevent possibly damaging the laptop with any cleaning material.

Neither the service manual or the setup guide on the site show a detailed key layout. What I do is take a picture or two with my cell phone camera so I can remember how things look before taking them apart. You can also lay the keyboard down on a scanner, if you have one, and make a picture of it that way.

It's not hard to take the keys off as they just snap on. But they really aren't designed to be removed, and the thin plastic snap tabs are fragile. Sometimes they don't snap back on securely once they come off. Work carefully and don't use excessive pressure in snapping the keys back in place.

If you're trying to clean the keyboard because of a spill, you may just be better off replacing it. New keyboards aren't expensive (around $20 to $30), and as you'll see in the service manual they are easy to change. This site even claims they have the keyboard for under $10.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!

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
