Keys coming off my HP Pavilion 5000 laptop

Still looking for a solution!
The black cover keys over "cap lock" and "shift" have come off my HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop. I have tried unsuccessfully to re-attach. Both keys keep coming off and I am frustrated to the point of using an auxiliary keyboard!
Is there anyway besides using super glue to re-attached the keys? A past response from FixYa was to use a screwdriver to screw back on the silver u-shaped part but the answer failed to mention what to screw on and where? Where's the thread?
Is there anyone out there who knows how to re-attach loose keys to this computer??
I have the hp pavilion dv5000 and the black pad on my shift key has broken off, too. I would love to superglue it on, but I'm afraid I'll do more damage than good.

I would say it would be best to just replace the whole keyboard. It's not hard, just time-consuming, & you can get a good price for one on eBay.

    Here are instructions to take it apart to replace the cooling fan. You have to take off the keyboard to do that, so just follow the instructions until the part where the keyboard is removed. *Important: Make sure you have all the proper screws out before you try to pull it loose & don't yank too hard because it is attached by 2 short cables underneath. You'll want something small like a toothpick to gently press back the tiny clips that secure the cables. Hope this helps!

I had no luck finding the white plastic part and black rubber piece to fix my keys (that my terrilble 2 yr old pulled off). I did find the whole keyboard for under 25 bucks with shipping from amazon. I am undecided if I should replace the whole keyboard or just pick and choose the missing pieces off the replacement.

Has anyone tried to replace their keyboard?

How i can unlock shift


If you are printing all CAPS then it is the Caps Locks key. It is located just above the shift key on the left side of the keyboard. There should also be a light on the laptop indicating the Caps lock is on.

Hope this helps

Keyboard does not work


If there is a lock feature, its probably on it as a function key. (maybe the F1, F2, etc keys?) Function keys are usually a different color and need to be used while pressing the Fn/Function key (could be called something else, just look for something other than shift/ctrl/alt/windows key).

Keys coming off my HP Pavilion 5000 laptop


I'm afraid that if the keys "keep coming off" then the very small bits of plastic that keep them down have permanently broken (very common) and that you must replace the keyboard. Page 5-28 of this document from HP explains how to replace the keyboard of that model.

The key tops on my laptop Pavillion are loose and keep coming off


There are 2 little attachment arms on the bottom of the keys. Use a very small electronics screwdriver to make sure both arms get attached. If the arms are missing then you'd have to find another machine for parts to get the attachment pieces. It's tricky and a pain to attach but it will. I have 3 HP Pavillions and have had to do this several times.

How can I unlock the blue function keys on my HP Pavilion dv2000?


Hi, I had the same problem and found the solution on another website:

To turn on and off Bilingual blue keys:

Hit Ctrl + Shift + shift
(yes, both shift keys at the same time in addition to ctrl)

and that turns on and off the Canadian bilingual blue keys on HP lap tops.

It's so annoying and happens to me frequently. Hope this helps.

CAPS LOCK PROBLEM!!! URGENT HELP NEEDED!!!!


On some keyboards, there's a hidden 'feature' where if you hit CAPS LOCK and Shift at the same time, everything works backwards, until you hit that combo again.

Try this and let me know if it pertains to you...

My typing goes uppercase without hitting the caps lock


I have the HP Pavilion and cap locks does the same thing.
THIS WORKS EVERY TIME. Hit both the right and left shift lock simultaneously about 5 to 10 times. It immediately disengages the cap locks. It is a little bit of a hassle, but I'm just used to it. It may happen 3 times per week, but I LOVE the machine, so I just fix it this way!
