There are two little hooks under where the keys go..( and I mean Little). It may be easier to take the key loose from the holder and attach it first so you can see the hooks (you can feel the little hooks with a fingernail.)

Then try to reattach the key to the holder which is not easy either. Keys are a pain to put on.

If you think you can't do it then you might consider a repair tech. ( Not from a big box store...use a local person)

It's not easy to describe the process so I'm doing the best I can for you as me not being there to actually show you.
Hope this helps!

HP Pavilion Dv4-1540us screen - When powering up, the screen goes from black to blue and will not display anything.

If it proves that the inverter is to blame ...the procedure is not that complicated ...You basically have to open the LCD screen ..and change it ..To do that you have to remove the hinge cover..(this will snap off cause it has no screws attached ...Insert a plastic screwdriver like tool on the binding line in the back and twist it to depart ..and in front insert same tool on F1 and F11 position ..and step by step ..snap out ...)
You may remove the lcd from the hinges..just to handle it better ..but this will not be a must do move...Just disconnect it from the main board..and only remove it if you find the position uncomfortable to work in ..
The edge of the screen screwed ..and need to be removed...The screws are hidden under round lids that cover the screws..Just remove them ..and unscrew the edge ..
It will remove and you will have access to the LCD and the inverter ..The inverter is just plugged a\or screwed ..and all you have to do is to remove the old one and place the new one ..and redo all steps to place the parts together again ..
here you will find more advices about this problem and in general about laptop repair ..

Can't seem to get my HP pavilion dv6 something to connect to my TV. HDMI cord i know is all right, but still it doesnt seem to connect. I get a "no signal" on TV, and no video or...

With the laptop connected to the TV, push the Windows Key and the P key at the same time. You will see a windows pop up, see the attached image. You want it to be on the Duplicate or Extend option. You can also try the Projector Only option.kiddfroster.jpg

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.

Keys coming off my HP Pavilion 5000 laptop

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.

The key tops on my laptop Pavillion are loose and keep coming off

There are 2 little attachment arms on the bottom of the keys. Use a very small electronics screwdriver to make sure both arms get attached. If the arms are missing then you'd have to find another machine for parts to get the attachment pieces. It's tricky and a pain to attach but it will. I have 3 HP Pavillions and have had to do this several times.

Alt key does not work

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
