Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

HP DV9000 ''G'' ''H'' and backspace keys seem to not work on occasion

Every once and a while it seems those three keys G H and backspace keys don't work and then they are back on. I use the onscreen keyboard to help with the fustration till they start again. It seems to happen for a few days and then no problem for a few months. Already had the mother board replaced a while back with the recall when the wireless went out. Could this be related. None of my computer friend seem to know what it could be.

    I have the same problem and it gets really frustrating, especially when my log in password had an "h" in it, so I couldn't even get in the computer to activate the onscreen keyboard.

Sometimes the simplest things cause us the most grief. A starting point might be to turn the laptop upside down (be careful!). Then, use some compressed air (Dust Off, etc) to blow the keyboard. If there is trash in the keyboard, you might just blow it out -- and fix the problem.

If that doesn't work, you might consider having the keyboard replaced. I normally take them off the laptop and hit them with compressed air from the back before replacing the keyboard. That's an option you should pursue only if you feel comfortable with minor dis-assembly of your laptop.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,

The keyboard got busted. If it has warranty send it back else you can shop for a replacement keyboard online. They are easy to install and doesn't require much work.

HP Pavillion dv9000. Intermittent stops. Cannot restart, but will do so after many hours. Screen turns blue with band of torn blue that looks like shutters. System carries out repair check - once worked...


Try booting your computer in safe mode... when your machine starts press F8 and go to Windows. Run for a couple of hours and see if this problem happens.

If you have system restore running, restore back to a point when you didnt have the problem

I have a hp pavilion dv9000 serious and when i turn on my laptop it powers up but the only problem is my monitor doesn't want to start it seems like its on hibernate or something


usaully on a laptop there is a function key that controls video output. this key normally has three positions. Video to laptop screen only, Video to laptop and vga output (IE. lcd projector), and the last one is "Video to vga output only". The last setting will keep your laptop screen blank. It is worth a try. GOOD LUCK!!

The g and h keys don't function


Hello

Still? Was this the problem before? I have seen viruses that effect the keys. Download and run AVGFREE, MALWARE BYTES, and SUPERANTISPYWARE. Once these ae run, now how is the keyboard? If still a problem goto START, Run and type MSCONFIG. Once this is on the screen then select Disgnostic Startup. Save and Reboot. Only the basic OS will load. If the keys still don't work then it can only be the KB, KB connector, or mother board.
