    Yes, the tab keys work. All keys work except for the q,w,e,r,u,i,o,p. I tested this with the wordprocessor.

I think its likely to be a hardware problem but check that your keyboard settings are correct for your country. Look in the control panel and then Keyboard settings.
Does the tab key work?

    I think its a hardware problem, if you're comfortable taking the notebook apart, check the cable connecting the keyboard to the main PCB. It may be a loose connection there but its more likely to be a fault in the keyboard unit.


    You should be able to find a replacement keyboard on sites like ebay.

How to Disassemble an HP Pavilion DV6000


The HP Pavilion DV6000 is one in a popular line of consumer-oriented laptops produced by HP. Relatively inexpensive, the Pavilion DV6000 is a good all-around value for most users. Taking apart an HP Pavilion DV6000 is not an easy chore and if you plan to use the laptop again, it is important you know what you are doing or you have a large appetite for risk. If the above doesn’t describe you, consider taking the HP in for professional repair or upgrade. Otherwise, follow the steps below to disassemble the HP Pavilion DV6000.
18385245_1.jpg?w=200 1、Prepare a clear workstation. Turn off the laptop and remove all power components including the cord and the battery. (Turn the laptop over and you will find the tab to push and pop out the dv6000 battery.) Also remove any peripheral attachments like card readers and USB devices.

3、Remove the hard drive and memory modules by pulling up on the rectangular compartments. The memory is located in the central compartment (remove by spreading latches and pulling up), and in most HP models the hard drive is located to one side.
4、Remove the optical CD/DVD drive by pulling on the drive face to the left and out of the laptop. Remove the WiFi card by disconnecting the gold connectors on the antenna and pulling the card from its slot.
5、Turn the hp dv6000 back over and remove the keyboard and power panel/media touch pad. Carefully pry the power panel up with a piece of hard plastic near the power button on the left side. Be careful when pulling not to yank the power connection as you might accidentally rip out a wire. Pull back the keyboard to reveal the connections. Disconnect the connections by carefully pulling on the tabs with your thumb and forefinger. If they are tight, wiggle them back and forth while pulling on them to loosen them.
6、Remove the screws that were underneath the power pack/media touch pad. Carefully pry up the top casing and set it aside.
7、Detach all visible connections to the motherboard by pulling gently on them, wiggling them if they are stuck. Gently pull up from the right side of the motherboard and remove. The HP laptop is now fully disassembled.

Hi,

Try pressing the button above the touchpad to make the light blue, that should re-enable the touchpad again.

I am having the problem with my HP laptop Notebook. tx1000. I am not able to type anything with the top letter rows.


Power the laptop off.
Blow compressed air behind the keys, or hold down some and jam the bristles of a brush under the faulty keys.
Didn't fix it?

OK plug in an external keyboard.
No issue typing with an external keyboard? You need to replace the laptop keyboard.
Issues with external keyboard too? (remember try all the ports if it's USB; check Bios if it's PS/2 and make sure the PS/2 port is enabled!!!)...you have a faulty chip on the motherboard. Sell the laptop for parts (it's cheaper usually than replacing the motherboard on these older models that still fetch decent prices on ebay).

I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 and the fan has started making noises


Its possible but it would require taking out all the screws from the bottom of the latop, taking out the keyboard and the screws from the top cover. Then disconnecting the ribbon for the mouse pad and any other plugs coming from the top cover. After you take off the top cover you'll expose where the fan is at and at that point you can clean it off. If it still makes weird sounds then the fan would need to be replaced.
