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!

How do I remove/replace the keyboard from a HP Pavillion dv7-2277cl


1. Remove 6 screws from the bottom of the case (as shown). These screws hold the accessory cover.

2. Remove one screw securing the CD/DVD drive. Slide the CD/DVD drive to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard. Remove the CD/DVD drive.

3. Remove all marked screws from the bottom of the notebook.
The yellow circled screws secure the keyboard cover, and the green one secures the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

4. Turn the computer display-side up and open it as far as possible. Insert a guitar pick or small flat screwdriver between the keyboard cover and case and slowly move along the side.

5. Lift the keyboard cover. Be careful, it's still connected to the motherboard. Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector and disconnect the cable from the LED board. Remove the keyboard cover.

6. Remove the four screws that secure the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

7. Lift the rear edge of the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard until it rests at an angle. Slide the keyboard back to disengage the tabs on the front edge of the keyboard from the top cover and rest it on the display.

8. Release the ZIF connector to which the keyboard cable is attached and disconnect the keyboard cable. Remove the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

Some keys on my laptop`s keyboard doesn`t work such as g, h, backspace, fn and the windows button, what can I do?


Hi, if you spilled liquid on the keyboard then it probably needs to be replaced,
Try this... you can remove the keyboard by removing certain screws from the bottom of the laptop, then you open the laptop like if you are using it look to for sliders around the keyboard edges or if it just snaps in place, use thin flat screw driver to carefully remove the keyboard but do not pull far.. it should still be attached with a wide flat cable to the main board... now lets try to remove the cable completely and re-attach it ( when removing the cable use your small flat screw driver to pull the plastic connector snaps from the sides of the connector to loosen the cable and be careful not to break the connector, when attaching back put the cable in first and hold it while you push the connector plastic back in place)... try the computer to see if the problem is gone, if not then order another keyboard and replace it. best of luck

My print screen button doesn't work on my dv9000 and i have tried EVERYTHING


On my HP Pavilion DV9500 with Win7 64 bit (laptop was new in 2007 and had Vista), I have the same problem, and I press FN-insert/scroll key and this works as the print screen button. That's the function key together with the insert key, which is 2 buttons to the left of the print screen key.

Keyboad doesnt work hp pavilion dv9823ea laptop


Hi:
The keyboards on laptops are somewhat fragile, and would be the first thing that should be tried. They are not too hard to change, and relatively inexpensive, about $15 on ebay. You could plug in a external, USB keyboard to use temporarily too.

Keyboard problem on brandnew laptop


Several reasons: 1. because of spilled liquid on this keyboard area, 2. because of heavy and/or hard thing fell on this keyboard area
3. because the laptop fell from the high height on the left side.
4. because you bought it already damaged
5. hardly probably software malfunction
For the first case you might need to disassemble the keyboard and clean all the metallic surfaces of these buttons. It's not so easy to disassemble it in right way. Second-third case - you'll need to purchase a new keyboard for it and replace with the damaged. Fourth case - claim your seller to change your laptop with the new one or get your money back. Good luck
