Keys coming off my HP Pavilion 5000 laptop

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.

How do i fix my LCD?


Hi,
I have got a hp pavilion dv5000, when I turn on it the screen goes blank.

Power led glows, I hear for a few time the fan, disk led flashes intermittently and also I feel that the DVD player tries to load.

If I try to click on caps lock or num lock, leds don't respond to commands. I tried the hard reset pressing the power button for 30 seconds with the battery and the power removed. Nothing to be done by connecting an external monitor....

What can I do ?qqb002.gif

Thank you

Battery with HP Pavillion DV5000 won't work. Do I need to replace the battery or is there a battery charger I could use to recharge the battery? Dianne


You can order a power cable online or pick one up at your local computer store. They should run between $80-150. The battery itself is very expensive to purchase but is rechargeable.

Where is the backlight switch located on the hp dv5000?


The baclight for an HP laptop is at the bottom of the bezel around the LCD. There are 2 screws covered with rubber caps at the bottom of the LCD. remove the rubber caps and the screw and lift gently. The backlight is a white plastic piece aproximatly 2 inches long. This should be plugged in to a plug with two wires. sometimes they come loose.

Keys coming off my HP Pavilion 5000 laptop


I would say it would be best to just replace the whole keyboard. It's not hard, just time-consuming, & you can get a good price for one on eBay.

CAPS LOCK PROBLEM!!! URGENT HELP NEEDED!!!!


On some keyboards, there's a hidden 'feature' where if you hit CAPS LOCK and Shift at the same time, everything works backwards, until you hit that combo again.

Try this and let me know if it pertains to you...
