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 am missing the 4 key on my HP Pavilion dv5000 laptop, I can't find a site that will sell a single key, they all want to sell a complete keyboard. Is it possible to find and replace a single key ?

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 do I connect my laptop to a Monitor

Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

If you have the AMD chip them that is probably and ATI controller. You can download the Controller drivers and Monitoring software from ATI. THe web addresses are :

My HP Pavilion notebook does not recognize the DVD/CD Drive. It is not listed in the device manager.

Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

hope this helps
