Hp laptop keyboard won't type "b n 1"or ''tab esc'' other keys ok..


Either your keyboard cable needs to be reseated or your keyboard is going bad and needs to be replaced. The keyboard cable is under the keyboard and it attaches to a slot on the motherboard. You'll have to partially disassemble the laptop to get to it. Hopefully you're not having this problem because you spilled a liquid on the keyboard.

Here's a fail safe alternative. Bring up google's website www.google.com and in the search box type "download.cnet.com" (without the quotes) and click the link to go to their site. When the site comes up look immediately to the left and you will see a gray area that says Find Software. Type in "free virtual keyboard" (without the quotes) and click the mirror to search. It will bring back a page and the Free Virtual Keyboard is listed first. Look to the right of it and click the Download Now button. Download and install it. Once it is install you can look in Start/Programs and right click on it and select Pin to Start Menu then right click again and select Desktop (Create Shortcut). It's a neat keyboard to have just in case your real keyboard goes bonkers. You simply click on the letter with your mouse pointer that you want. It has all the functionality of a physical keyboard. You can open a web page, place your mouse in the address line then bring up the virtual keyboard by clicking on it from your desktop or start menu and it will sit on top of whatever you were trying to do. You can move it to see the typing area as you click on a letter. It works the same way if you opened a word document. In your case anytime you need the space bar, just click on it.

I was given this used laptop: No Manual and there are so many functions that I do not understand. Some keys print symbols rather than the letter or number. In addition sometimes the space bar goes back...


This sounds interesting. I have two thoughts:

1. The keybaord is setuo for a foreign language, go to Change Keyboards in the Control Panel and make certain that it is setup properly.

2. The hardware buffer is bad, or the Keyboard driver is bad... you could try deleting and reloading the driver.

On my Toshiba Satellite Laptop I have opened and started the computer but can't get past the sign in window because my enter key and space bar won't respond. I can type letters but can not enter...


> hardware problem or software or keyboard?

Experiment #1: turn the computer off. Connect a USB keyboard. Turn the computer on. Use that keyboard to try the 'TAB' key (to move from field-to-field). If TAB works, then try using the SPACE or ENTER keys.

Experiment #2: turn the computer off. Turn the computer on, and look for the message:

PRESS <blah> to ENTER BIOS SETUP

When you see the message, press the <blah> key. On the BIOS SETUP menus, try the ENTER key to "select" a field, to prove that the ENTER key works fine.

Experiment #3: Turn the computer off. Disconnect the AC power. Remove the battery.
Remove the disk-drive. Take the original CD/DVD disk, and start to install Windows to the disk-drive. As you work through the installation screens, you'll need to press ENTER at least once,
if only to acknowledge that installation cannot proceed, because the disk-drive is not connected.
If the ENTER key works, it works.

Experiment #4: Like #3, but connect a different, empty, disk-drive, and reinstall Windows.
If it completes, then your "original" setup has a SOFTWARE problem.

Do you have a descriptions of keyboard on Windows Vista There are keys with letters and numbers with icons on them . I would like the description of the keys.


Hi.

The layout of keys can differ with different model and make laptops. The keys with letters and numbers on them are used with the Num Lock key, if you press the Num Lock key them keys will type numbers instead of letters. If you press that key again they will type letters as normal.

The keys with icons on them are used with the function (Fn) key. That means that you hold down Fn and and use the F keys to adjust things like brightness, volume, mute and Wireless radio etc.

If you are wanting a full breakdown of your laptop models keyboard then i suggest you download the user manual from HP support website. Link below.

I can`t get any upper case functions to work on hp 2011 keyboard what key do i press


1.Make sure the "Caps Lock" key is not on. Though this will be obvious to most people, if your keyboard is typing in only upper-case letters it can't hurt to check. Look at the "Caps Lock" indicator light on the top right corner of your HP keyboard. If the light is on, strike the "Caps Lock" key on the left side of your keyboard. This will turn the "Caps Lock" off, allowing you to type in lower case letters again.

2.Make sure the "SHIFT" keys on your HP keyboard are not stuck. Dust and dirt can build up on a keyboard over time, which can cause certain keys to stick. If either of your keyboard's "SHIFT" keys get stuck, your computer will type in only capital letters. Use a toothpick or cotton swab to remove the gunk from the key, which should help it return to its normal position.

3.Unplug your HP keyboard and then plug it back it. This will remove the device from your operating system and then automatically add it back in. This can have the same effect, essentially, as restarting your computer. If your keyboard was typing in capital letters due to an error being stored in your operating system's memory, that error will now be cleared and the HP keyboard will function as normal again.

4.Update your HP keyboard driver. Click "Start" and then right click on "Computer." Click "Properties" and then "Device Manager." Right click on the listing for your keyboard and then click "Update Driver." This will update the computer software that is associated with your HP keyboard. If your keyboard was typing in all capital letters as a result of an error with this driver, the error will now be fixed and you can use your keyboard normally again

Keyboard letters wont work but only top row Of numbers


On a notebook computer, there is a FN key that when pressed with the appropriate special function key will disable the normal keyboard and enable the alternate letters (printed in a different color) on your keyboard.
Unfortunately, I can't remember which special function key that is--but the icon on it should give you a clue.

Where is the function button?


Normally it is to the left of the space bar, next to the Alt and Windows keys. The letters are usually blue and say Fn.

Hp dv8000 keybpoard problem


Hello! am Fabian,
problem.
every time i press a letter another letter shows up the space bar ...

solution.
first, be show to check if any other key is down, if not, dust your keyboard/pad to make sure the keys are free. if you problem remains, its likely your keyboard may be moist. you have to dry it by opening/ exposing it internal circuitry's to a dry air for some hours then close it up and test. if this did not work, it means you will need to replace your keyboard/pad.

when drying do not expose to direct sun light. if you have to replace the keyboard/pad buy an exart from your system manufacturer if you can.

i hope this information will be helpful.
Thanks.
