    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.

You PC has crashed, you need to run a recovery (which will lead to format the partition and reinstall the O/s, that means all your data will be lost).

Restart the notebook and start tapping F11 key,you will come to Recovery Manager, click on Advance Options, and select System Recovery and click on next, select No without backingup the files (as this option most of the times fails). Click on next and wait for 30-40 mins for the reinstallation to get completed.

HP Pavilion dv6000 has vista loaded onto it and the top letter keys on the keyboard, except for a few, won't type.


Go to the device manager and scroll down to the keyboard. Uninstall the keyboard and reboot the laptop, make sure that the laptop has an internet connection, when the laptop reboots it will reinstall the keyboard and maybe even search for an updated driver and hopefully this will clear up the problem.
