Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
Still looking for a solution!
The black cover keys over "cap lock" and "shift" have come off my HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop. I have tried unsuccessfully to re-attach. Both keys keep coming off and I am frustrated to the point of using an auxiliary keyboard!
Is there anyway besides using super glue to re-attached the keys? A past response from FixYa was to use a screwdriver to screw back on the silver u-shaped part but the answer failed to mention what to screw on and where? Where's the thread?
Is there anyone out there who knows how to re-attach loose keys to this computer??
We have a HP Pavilion Dv7-4061nr laptop. The keys kept coming off, we figured out how to put them in. But eventually it caused 1/2 the keyboard to work only when it wanted too. We ended up buying a new keyboard online for $20. We were told by several HP techs that HP orders the cheapest and crappiest keyboards to put in their laptops. You thought they would take some price in their things. However with replacing the keyboard we have not had any more problems.
Sad thing is, we called HP tech support because of what they keyboard was doing and it even made all kinds of beeping noises. They said send back the laptop at your expense. They would take a look at it and maybe repair it or trade it in for 1/2 the price of a new one. The laptop was 6 months old when I called. It is sad when you call their techs and they could not figure out the simple solution to it was REPLACE THE KEYBOARD! They make the laptops here in Boise, Idaho. I do hope this helps.

I'm afraid that if the keys "keep coming off" then the very small bits of plastic that keep them down have permanently broken (very common) and that you must replace the keyboard. Page 5-28 of this document from HP explains how to replace the keyboard of that model.
