Re: PRESARIO V6000 KEYBOARD PROBLEMS
Hi there. I'm sorry to say that the keyboard needs to be replaced, this is a common problem with certain keyboards as the binary and hexadecimal commands which link to the keys are getting confused thus you get keys doing other keys jobs as you have explained in your post. You can use a USB keyboard for the time being while you have yours replaced.

Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.
Bad keyboard. This series have a higher frequency of keyboard problems because ... well .. the keyboard cable got folded by design. Just replace it. The A40's uses the same keyboard as a A10, A15, A55, A60, A64, 1400, 1405, 1410, 1415, 2400, 2405, 2410, 2415 ... and many others. A new replacement keyboard should run about $20 on eBay.
Replacing the KB is easy: lift up the power button board above the keyboard, remove the three screws holding the keyboard down, then remove the keyboard connector cover panel, and you'll be able to disconnect the keyboard.
You have a bad keyboard or keyboard controller. Keyboard controller is located on your motherboard and to repair this requires you to replace the motherboard. However, the 1st thing I would try would be to replace the keyboard. You might be able to fine a new keyboard on eBay. If the keyboard doesn't fix the problem, then the motherboard will need to be replaced.
There are 2 common problems for this. 1. Something got stuck under the keyboard of your laptop. Food scraps or Dirt and Grime build-up due to sweaty palms or fingers clean the keyboard. 2.The Membrane on your keyboard that act as a switch cold be shorted due to wear and tear or heavy key presses. Have your keyboard replaced.
Other problems could be cracked board if you happen to lean or put heavy stuff over the keyboard and cracked ribbon connector.
Accoring to the problem you have mentioned i am sure the keys are not connected properly. The tab key is connected on the Caps lock key. Moreover make sure you press the fn key to check for any changes as it is the key which helps you toggle in Laptop
It sounds to me that you may have an issue with the keyboard itself, as most BIOS will stop on a keyboard error unless told otherwise. But, this could be a malfunctioning keyboard, or a disconnected keyboard. 1 way to test either is to press the caps lock, num lock or scroll lock keys and verifying the corresponding light turns on and off with the button presses. If they do not respond, it's likely the keyboard has become disconnected internally. Other issues may also cause this to happen, but they are harder to test for. If it does respond, then it's more likely to be a keyboard failure, and a replacement of the keyboard may be required.
The problem probably does not rely on the BIOS, if anything your operating system may have detected the wrong keyboard. Can you give me an example of what keys exactly are coming out funny.. for instance when you press L does it show up 7 or @ or a character in a different language?
What operating system are you using? Windows/Linux, XP,Vista?
