SOURCE: zd8000 keyboard is skipping letters and spaces

Hey I have an HP zd8000 also and I've experienced everything that you guys mentioned. What's a laptop without a battery if you can't take it anywhere? After two years, I got so frustrated. I researched HP's web site and came across a battery recall. I just got mines in the mail today (Dec. 1, 2008), and my notebook is portable again! :D They will ask for your battery serial number. While typing the serial number be sure not to mix up the letter 'B' with the number '8', or else it will show as invalid serial. This is the link for the HP Battery Replacement Program!

I hope this solves your problem!

SOURCE: hp pavilion dv1000 laptop pc keyboard not working properly.

Does this computer KB work alright in SAFE mode? If it does then drivers and/or viruses are the problem. If it doesn't work in SAFE mode then it could be drivers and or keyboard. Now try booting into BIOS. At the date prompt you usually can type any keyboard letter. If the keyboard works here, then you definately have driver/virus issues. If not replace the keyboard.

SOURCE: Slow Keypad with sticking space bar

My MOM Used AOL mail, for her it was the AOL news pictures loading every few seconds in the backround. If you press the pause button in between the left and right arrow boxes in the news box (under the pictures) you will turn off that function, which should speed up your typing, as every time a news item switches it causes a delay which may miss a keystroke, etc.

SOURCE: It seems like fn key stuck because everything,

Try holding fn key and hitting scroll lock or num lock to see if that does it. sounds like you have somehow locked your fn key on.

Why is there a delay when i type letters?

You are likely either infected with a virus running in the background and using a lot of resources or running out of disk space.
Start task manager Ctrl alt del and look to see what is using all the memory / processor speed and use anti virus.
Also remove startup program's in msconfig

Just got a new laptop - password requires a space - where is space bar? when i type all i see is .......... all dots - no space

the space bar is the long thin key on bottom of keyboard. when you type in a secure password its normal for it to show dots. this is done so a person cant stand close to you and see your password, so a space would show up as a dot like a letter would when you type in a pasword

Zd8000 keyboard is skipping letters and spaces

I also had this very frustrating problem and found that removing the battery that would no longer hold a charge solved the issue. Go figure. Haven't bought a new battery yet to see what that does and I run my computer on AC power all the time now.
