Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook

Alt key does not work

I have a HP Pavilion ze2000 series (ze2115us) laptop. I have rarely used the alt key but after installing Adobe Acrobat there are functions requiring the alt key and, on my laptop, these functions do not work. As the functions do work on my PC I must assume the alt key is not working. Everything else on this unit works great. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks James.

    I was afraid I'd have to do that. Was hoping for an easy fix. But the way you laid it out seems pretty simple. Scott

You can try to repair it, but its easier (and cheaper) to just buy a replacement keyboard on eBay. (or other online seller) Replacing is simple. Turn off the machine, remove the battery. There are 2 screws with pictures of a keyboard next to them. Remove those. Open the machine back up and remove the piece above the keyboard (start at the right side and gently pull up, it will release the clips) Then there are 4 screws in the top of the keyboard and a ribbon cable to unplug underneath the keyboard.
Good Luck James PC Tech

Please ,how can i type a back slash symbol


if you can't find the backslash on your keyboard, you can always use the so called ASCII code. It sound complicate, but it is simple: press and hold the left ALT key and press one at a time the following digits form the NUMERICAL KEYBOARD: 0 9 2 . Now release the ALT key and the backslash appears.

There is a code like that for all characters and digits oin the keyboard

Audio driver for hp pavilion ze2000


This Link
seems to provide the best thorough approach to getting those drivers installed & working.

However, someone claims, on this forum page(last post on the page) that all you need to do is use the "windows online driver search" function, and it will handle all of the messy work of locating, downloading & installing.

I hope that helps.

Can this HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter fit for Compaq Presario V3000 laptop? I doult that HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter on website:http://www.laptopbatteryshop.ca/hp-pavilion-dv9000-ac-adapter.htm...


Have a look at the label on the bottom of the V3000 laptop and check the voltage and amps power rating of the laptop.
If the DV9000 adapter has the same voltage and current rating (amps) or higher amp rating then it is suitable for the V3000 laptop, provided the power plug fits the V3000 power socket.

Can't accept the adobe reader license on my dell inspiron 1011 because I cant find the ''accept'' button. Probably some resolution problem.


Get another computer without the Adobe Reader (same OS language) and install temporarily Adobe Reader. Note on a scrap of paper what keyboard keys (Tab, Alt Y, Y, A, Alt A, Space...) are needed to position the cursor on the Accept button and continue installation.

Then just repeat the sequence on your Inspiron.

Otherwise, try blindly pressing Alt-A (for Accept), Alt-Y or Y (for Yes), and Enter key. Maybe one of them will work, if the default buttons in the dialog box are configured as per default.

You may also want to try pressing Alt-Space followed by Enter. Usually this allows you to move the active window using the cursor keys. It won't let you move the window too much out of the screen, but it's worth a try.
