Keyboard on hp dv1000 won't type letters how to fix this issue?

Keyboard


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

Keyboard incorrectly types a mixture of letters and numbers when certain keys are used.


There are a couple of things you could try:
1. Remove the keyboard following a service manual for your laptop, and reseat the ribbon cable underneath it.
2. If the problem still isn't solved, the keyboard should be replaced

I press certain letter keys and numbers appear, the number keys are fine just the letters, what is the fix for this error?


You have your numbers lock on, press the NumLk key and that should correct it. You will notice on you keyboard that there are small numbers on it below some of the letters, this is so you can use the keyboard has a 10 key number pad/ calculator etc. If pressing the NumLk key does not work, the key may be stuck or you have a bad keyboard

Spilled juice on my H P Pavilion laptop keyboard, keyboard is not working at all. Please help!


Do you have an HP Accidental Damage extended warranty? If you do, you can call HP's tech support and get it fixed/replaced.

If you don't have the extra warranty, you can try to carefully pop the keyboard keys off and carefully clean underneath as the contacts below the keys are possibly stuck in the down position.

You may have to take it to a service centre and have a technician open up the laptop and see if it can be cleaned and try to "unstuck" the keyboard keys.
