Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

Some key's on the keyboard doesn't work

I have a Hp Pavilion dv4000 series. Only some of the key's on the keyboard doesn't work. The T,B,N and F8 keys don't work. I have tried to reinstall the operating system and can not do so because it asks me to agree and press F8 which I cannot do and then I tried something else and asked for the key code and it was one of the letter that doesn't work. Can you help me with this problem. I was going to try and go out and buy a usb keyboard but would like to see if I can resolve the problem first if some one could help me I would greatly appreciate it.

    Hi tamisedelmai,

    sounds like a hardware problem. Please connect an external keyboard and check if these characters/keys are working then (with the external keyboard, of course). If they do you should contact your hardware vendor for a deeper hardware check.

Hi,

My name is ArmyMason, here is a link for you to purchase a new keyboard from. ($24.88) http://www.papatek.com/HP-Keyboard/HP-Pavilion-DV4000-keyboard.html Only other solution to this is to try and reseat the ribbon cable into the motherboard and see if that resolves the issue.

Thanks,
ArmyMason

Hello. My cat stepped on a keyboard after that I have lost shift-spacebar functions. Please help me to restore it. I have to use another computer to type this massage.


If the keys are jambed and you cannot free them then you most likely need to replace the keyboard.
Replacement keyboard is available from this WEB site.

Cant figure out how to get it off the little blue symbols


Either the "blue" coloured 'FN' is _stuck_ in the "down" position, or you have accidentally activated the "Sticky Keys" Windows "accessibility" tool.

With "Sticky Keys", you press keys just _one_ at a time, e.g., CTRL then ALT then DELETE instead of pressing multiple keys (SHIFT and '8') at the same time.

Restart, in order to turn-off "Sticky Keys".

Or, "exercise" the 'FN' key, until it "unsticks" itself.

Key types twice on Hp pavilion labtop


If you go to start > (settings) > control panel.

Switch to classic display if applicable.

Select the keyboard icon and you can adjust the sensitivity. This will only work for all the keys but might help you.

I have HP DV4000 has a bright problem but cant get fn keys to work


Reinstall all drivers for your laptop from the HP.Com website. If the function keys still don't work, you may have a defective keyboard.

Turn the laptop off, then take the laptop keyboard off (usually takes 1 screw - bottom of case, and a few sliders, top of keyboard). And then there will be a couple of thin cables which are connected to the motherboard. There is a sliding connector which holds these on. Push this up, slide the cable in, puch it back down. Do for both cables if you have 2 (keyboard and tracking pad/pointing stick). Reinstall keyboard and try it out.

If that doesn't fix it, replace the keyboard with one from ebay.
