To remove the keyboard, you have to remove all the screws on the bottom that have picture of a keyboard next to them. theres usually 3 but there may be more.

Then on the top, you have remove the plastic bezel that runs along the top of the keyboard where the bottons are. There may be a screw that holds it down from the back so be carefull and pry it gently.

The keyboard can then be lifted out. lift slowly as the keyboard and mouse attach with a small data ribbon and you will need to remove it. This of course may not help you as the keyboard has a back to it.

It may be simpler to just pop off the key with the problem and then pull out the object thats under it.

Using compresed air to blow it out would be what i would try first though.

Scan for Viruses

Sudden, unexplained computer issues are commonly caused by a virus infestation. These sneaky programs secretly install themselves on your system and alter the way the machine functions and responds to commands. Eliminate any hidden malicious programs by running a deep scan to find and destroy unwanted programs. You may need to perform a restore or recovery action on your system afterward to replace corrupted files with the correct versions.
Troubleshooting

To determine whether your non-functioning F5 key is due to a software issue or faulty hardware, connect a separate keyboard to your Pavilion. If the F5 key works on the external keyboard, the problem with your Pavilion's F5 key could be physical, such as a dirty key or spilled liquid. If the F5 key does not work on the external keyboard either, the problem likely lies in the software. Make sure that your operating system files are up-to-date to encourage proper communication between the keyboard and motherboard.

Thorough Cleaning

A keyboard key can become non-functional if it cannot make contact with the proper sensor beneath it, such as from accumulated debris or a spilled liquid. Dust, hair and lint can collect beneath and between your Pavilion's keys, which can interfere with proper contact when the layer becomes too thick. Sticky residue left behind by sugary liquids, such as soda or juice, can cause the key to stick, preventing the computer from registering the press. Thoroughly clean the area beneath the F5 key by gently prying the key off and using a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to remove any dirt or residue.
Safe Mode

When you start your Pavilion, numerous other programs automatically start with it. Any of these programs could cause the F5 key to become non-responsive. Starting the Pavilion in Safe Mode will load only the essential operating system files and drivers, and if the F5 key works while in this mode, your problem most likely lies with an installed program or hardware device. To enter Safe Mode, restart your laptop and press the F8 key immediately. You'll enter the "Advanced Boot Options" menu, where you can use your arrow keys to select "Safe Mode" and press "Enter." If your F5 key still does not work, you may have a problem with your operating system files.

Clean the keyboard wiith a compressed air can, if that doesn't do the trick try a usb keyboard, if the external keyboard works well then you need to replace the laptops keyboard.

Error 0210: stuck key 01


I assume its a laptop. laptops some times get stuck keys, meaning one of the keys has not fully released after it was depressed. I recommend getting some compressed air in a can and give it a good cleaning. there might be something stopping git from popping back up. then give the keys a little work out. just mash the keys a bit. then turn it back on. if you still have an error, then you might want to consider replacing the keyboard. if you don't, it will not harm you pc in anyway...good luck

Sounds like a keyboard key is stuck in an engaged position. Hold the laptop upside down and while open tap the underside of the machine gently to dislodge the key. Otherwise you will have to take off the whole keyboard to see if something is lodged behind keys. Hope this helps.

Can't click a key back on my dv2500 keyboard


Once you slip the key under the metal keepers, push down a bit harder until you feel a click. (Sorry, no pics... just "Use the force, Luke")

I HAVE BEEN FACING A PROBLEM IN MY KEYBOARD OF MY NEW HP LAPTOP MODEL NO.530 ..SOME KEYS OF MY KEYBOARD WAS DEFECTIVE..PLEASE SORT OUT MY PROBLEM...


Hi,
It could either be a software problem or a hardware related issue;
1. check the keyboard workability in safe mode, if it does not work in safe mode, you would need to get it replaced.However, if it works, then that would mean that it is a software issue in which case you would need to either try system restore or operating system reinstallation.
Also, you have not mentioned which key(s) are non-functional. if it is just number keys then you would need to ensure that the num lock key is on (by just pressing it once).

regards,
Musheer

HP Compaq NX960 Laptop Keyboard Problem


This is generally a sensitivity issue with the keyboard. It's usually caused when the rubber depressors that activate each key start getting worn. Sometimes you can take each key off individually, take off the rubber depressor and clean the contact point on the keyboard and up inside the depressor where it makes contact. Clean it with with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. This is alot of work and only fixes the problem about 60% of the time. Your only other option is replacing the keyboard.

My light under the f10 turns on for not reason and then 0 will start going in all of my username or passwork or whenever I type. Thanks for help Steve


That commonly happens when something a key is stuck. as you are having an issue with two keys the problem is likely dirt or moisture in the keyboard itself. as the f10 and 0 keys are near eachother and also near the edge of the keyboard I am leaning towards something being in the membraine of the keyboard itself. Laptop keyboards tend to be spot welded and or glued making them impossable to take apart and clean properly. if you cant get it cleaned with compressed air you would be best to find a replacement keyboard from the original manufacturer or an otherwise broken laptop from ebay.

Keypad problem


Hi smoking tiger, The answer is probably, depending on what it is. If its sticky (dried soda, food) then its going to be hard for the typical user. If its just something loose then you can try the following: -Turn the laptop upside down and shake. -Buy a can of compressed air from any office or computer supply shop. Make sure you buy the kink with a small thin plastic pipe you insert into the nozzle. If you?re careful you can insert that underneath the keys and try blowing the material out. Be careful to hold the can upright otherwise you?ll shoot out liquid which could damage the key switches or parts. If that doesn?t work the typical user should take it to a local authorized repair shop. They have the skills to safely remove the keyboard, clean and if necessary replace. If you feel you have the tools and mechanical aptitude let us know and I?ll get you some instructions on keyboard removal. Also please don?t forget to rate the posting.
