The keyboard on my computer, the dv4000, is locked and it can not be used.

What do you mean locked. You cant lock a keyboard out. If its non functional replace it with a new one for about $25.

My h key poped off i think its broke i there any

Individual keys are hard to put back on a laptop keyboard, but replacing the entire keyboard is not too expensive, I have bought and changed dozens of them, and they are $15-20 on ebay, and not too hard to swap out.

My name is ArmyMason, here is a link for you to purchase a new keyboard from. ($24.88) Only other solution to this is to try and reseat the ribbon cable into the motherboard and see if that resolves the issue.

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.
