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.

Been trying to insert the @ key on another laptop

I don't fully understand, but if you are trying to find " @ " on different keyboard yo can try common ones
  • SHIFT + 2
  • R ALT + V (right alt key)
  • R ALT + 2
  • RALT + Q
But on every computer with nompad on keyboard you can use
  • L ALT + 64 (hold left alt and enter 64 on numpad, not work on numbers in up of keyboard)

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.

Toshiba satellite note book

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!
