Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Keyboard malfunction Whenever I turn the numpad on and off, the keyboard buttons such as 'j' or 'k' start typing numbers. (This computer has a built in numberpad so the keyboard should not be showing numbers at any point.) I tried re-installing the drivers, but to no effect.

    We have the same problem with our DV9000 laptop! It was just returned from HP due to their Limited Warranty Service Enhancement (because wireless card stopped workinh and left hinge was broken) and they replaced the mother board.

    After calling HP they say the built in recovery does not have the proper drivers for the keyboard and I needed to buy the recovery DVDs from them. I'm trying to look for a work around:-(

Most laptop keyboards use some letters of the right hand as numpad.
You must see some numbers in blue color over that letters.
This is why those letters write numbers when you turn on the Numpad.

My Satellite A100 laptop has no numerric key pad so how can I type special characters?


you should have numbers on the keyboard which you can access using the Fn button... you can also use these without the FN button by htting the NumLock button, then use as normal keypad....
other that that try using the Alt button and the Fn with the corresponding digits.So hold down Alt, FN and tap the corresponding digits/letters on the keyboard.

If you need to use a numpad a lot, then can purchase a USB numpad - often included with USB kits from gadget shops.

Function key plus number pad doesnt work. numpad is supposed to be fn key plus the four rows of 7890 uiop jkl; m,./ if NumLock is off, the +-*/ work, but not the numbers. the numbers behave as...


A numpad usually outputs the cursor movements with the shift bar depressed. That suggests to me that you need to turn of the Caps lock key, or otherwise make a change to the keyboard setup. Maybe there's a Fn key combo that needs to be toggled.

What is the fastest way of typing an é? I have been going through start, accessories, system tools, character map, copying, pasting, but there must be a quicker way?


If you are doing this on a laptop then you are stuck. About the only way is to use character map and copy as you have been or to try to program a quick start key to paste it.

The ALT-0233 is meant to be used on a 101 key pc type keyboard and the laptops do not use the same layout. Your only options would be to use a external keyboard instead of the built in one. I've tried a few things such as the built in numpad using function and an external numpad but neither worked for me. Your laptop may be different so it worth trying.

KEYBOARD NUMBERS


There should be a button called "numlock" which will enable to you use the keypad to the right of the keyboard, however, you don't need to "lock" the keyboard to use the numbers on the top row.

Keyboard acts like a keypad


Sounds like your Nom Lock button is on! It turns 7890 uio jkl m,. to numpad. You can just switch it off with num lock button top right on keyboard.

Your laptop keyboard has a modern emulated numpad. It acts like the numpad on a regular keyboard (since there clearly isn't room for one on your lappy).
Make sure that you are not holding the Fn key while typing, and most important, turn off Numlock. (There should be a button for it on your keyboard and a light that shows if it's on accordingly, the light should have a number and lock logo on it).
Hope this helps! Stay spicy and happy lappying!

Press and hold the Alt+key and while doing that type 0163 using the numpad.
This means on your notebook keyboard, you have to hold the Alt and Fn-key and than press the keys which contain the blue numbers.
So in your case press: m j o l in this order...

Half my keyboard prints lettersand the other half iopklm prints numbers i changed key boards and the new one is the same


What keyboard brand and model do you have?

I know for laptops that if you have the numlock on it changes those keys to type numbers. It could be the same for your desktop keyboard if it doesn't have a numpad at the right side.

Number pad


There is a Fn key on the bottom left of the keyboard and a num lock key at the top right of the keyboard (depending on the model) Hold the Fn key and then press the num lock key, that should fix your problem.
