If this is a NEW system, then the keyboard issue is covered under warranty, contactg HP tech support and TS with them, and if they deterimine the KB is bad, they will send a replacement.

During TS you may be asked to reseat the data cable for the keyboard (assisting with TS is part of the warranty) and either reseating the cable will resolve or they will send a replacement KB

Toshiba Satellite C655 - numerous keys still do not work after replacing the keyboard twice.


Soft drinks are the worst, sugar! Unplug, remove battery, dissemble and get access to all connection to the keyboard, usually a ribbon cable, or other connector/plug. Use Electronic Contact Cleaner Spray on the connections and connectors. Sometimes the magic works, sometimes it doesn't.

I bought a hp pavillion dv600 series, now after 1 yr my battery symbol shows a red cross and notifies me to change the battery. i have done dat but still, problems still survive. thanks in advance


Hi,

I think you can try these steps to isolate the problem on your machine and also it may help you resolved the problem for your battery being not detected.

Perform Hard Reset

Performing a hard reset erases all of the information that is stored in the temporary memory and forces Windows to do a complete scan of the system, including the battery.
To perform a hard reset, follow the steps below.

1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove the PC from any port replicator or docking station.

2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.

3. Press and hold down the power button for about 15 seconds to drain any residual electrical charge from the capacitors.

4. Once started, insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.

5. Press the power button to turn on the notebook PC.

6. Use the arrow keys to highlight Start Windows Normally , if it is not already highlighted, and then press the enter key.

Use the software HP Battery Check to test the battery, Once you have login to your PC. If its not working try this.

Resetting the BIOS to default settings

Resetting the defaults in the BIOS removes any possible incorrect valves and returns the BIOS to a known good condition.

To reset the BIOS defaults, follow the steps below.

1. Press the power button to turn on the notebook and repeatedly press f10 to enter the BIOS setup.

2. Navigate through the BIOS and select the option to restore the BIOS defaults. The option will have words like Restore Defaults or Setup Defaults .

3. Confirm that you want to restore the BIOS defaults, and then select the option to save and exit the BIOS setup.

Use again the Battery Check to test the battery. If those steps does not work you try this last step.

Update the BIOS

If resetting the BIOS default setting to the original condition does not resolve the problem, look for and install an updated BIOS. Just go to this link to download the updated BIOS for your machine and choose your Operating System.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3224055&

If happens those steps did not work mostlikely there is already a problem with the connector of your battery inside the machine.

Hope it helps.

How to update bios


To find the current BIOS version, follow the steps below:
  1. Restart the computer and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
  2. Write down the BIOS revision number from the Main page. You will use this number to see if HP has a later version available.
    1. Go to the HP Software download page
    2. If you are presented with a page to enter your model number, type in your model number. For example, Pavilion p6230f or TouchSmart 600-1050uk.
    3. Select the version of Windows the computer is using.
    4. Click the BIOS link.
      • If a BIOS update is not listed, HP does not have a BIOS update posted for your computer at this time.
      • If there are several BIOS updates available for different motherboard names, you need to find out what motherboard is installed in your computer. To do this, turn off the power to the computer, remove the side panel, and read the name printed on the motherboard. The name of the motherboard should match or be similar to the name of the download link.
      • If a BIOS update is listed, continue to the next step to download and install the BIOS update.

        Click the download link. The instructions for downloading and installing BIOS updates vary. For most computers with Windows XP, download the file, open it and follow the on-screen instructions. For many computers before Windows XP, save the downloaded file to the hard drive, insert a formatted disk, open the downloaded file to copy the BIOS files to the disk, and then restart the computer with the disk still in the drive. The instructions on the download page may be different so carefully read and follow the instructions on the download page and in the installation setup screens. If a 251 or CMOS Checksum error occurs after installing the BIOS update, perform the following steps:
        1. Restart the computer and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
        2. Press the F5 key to load the default BIOS configuration.
        3. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
        4. Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit.
        5. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
        When the BIOS update is complete, the new BIOS revision number is updated on the Main BIOS screen.

Dv6000 will not startup ,Black screen , hd isnit being accessed


When you first turn the laptop on is there a HP splash screen? Can you enter the BIOS (normally by tapping F2 or Del key). If so then it would seem the BIOS updated OK. If when you turn it on there is nothing the BIOS flash probably went wrong and the machine will need a new BIOS flash chip installed.
If you can access BIOS then it may be a simple problem that the new BIOS reverted to default values. The most common issue would be the boot mode of the HDD. Look through the BIOS menus and there should be an option for boot which will say AHCI/IDE/Compatibility. Try changing it to another option, save and exit BIOS and see if that helps. Try this for each option.
Alternatively tap F8 continuously when you turn the laptop on and see if the advanced boot menu appears, if it does try selecting Safe mode with networking.
Finally to test if the HDD is actually working, try downloading Hiren's BootCD and boot to it. Then run some HDD diagnostics to see if the HDD is operating correctly.
Hope this helps,

Hp pavilion dv 6000 keyboard not responding.Some of the keys will not respond at all. I checked the drivers and tried to update, but says most current installed. It has been doing this for about 6 months....


You need to check in the BIOS if the keys when typed does make beeping noise. Set BIOS defaults.
If the keys are still not working than boot the sys to the recovery manager and press ctrl+d to open the CMD box and test the key board there.
Boot the sys 3 times to BIOS and set BIOS defaults,
If it doesnt work try the latest update and drivers for the sys. If it doesnt work that means the keyboard needs to be repaired

New HDD inserted into Pavilion ZD7000 - will not boot from XP CD


Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.

Compaq presario v6000 laptop keyboard malfunction


Try reseting the BIOS to its defaults by following the instructions below :

Start or restart the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key immideatly you see the HP logo.

Now, in this press the F9 key to load the BIOS Default settings.

Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit the BIOS setup window.

Additionally, check by connecting any USB Keyboard to the Notebook if available.

Additionally, find the Product Number of the Notebook which is indicated with P/N printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the notebook.

Open HP.com and enter this in the search field at the top right column.

Click on Software & Driver downloads and select the Operating System in the Notebook which should be Vista.

Scroll down to find BIOS under which you will find the BIOS Updates available for your Notebook.

Download and save the latest BIOS Update available.

Close all the windows and applications and double click on the file to update the BIOS.

Donot attempt to access any application or turn it off or restart when the BIOS is being updated as this will damage the BIOS Chip and make the Notebook useless.

The Notebook will restart automatically after the BIOS is Updated.

Hope this helps...
