PN494AV is the part number -- please verify this on the baclk of your notebook BOTTOM OF PAGE IS A VIDEO ON HOW TO DO THIS --
if so, the keyboard (US English) p/n 383664-001 . This is for HP Pavilion zv6000 (PN494AV) CTO FF Notebook . call LAPTOP PARTS, phone -878-9501, USA they have it for about $20-$30
i would suggest getting this notebook to a qualified technician. Otherwise, if you think you are bale to replace it (it's fairly simple), save some money and DIY (do it yourself) .
here are the instructions HOW TO Remove the keyboard
first shut down system, unplu power cord, remove the battery from compartment
In the battery compartment you'll find three screws securing the HP Pavilion zv6000 keyboard to the laptop base. Remove these three screws.
Carefully lift up the top side of the keyboard as it shown on the picture below. There are small plastic latches securing the keyboard on both side but they should't be a problem. Do not lift up the keyboard too much, it's still connected to the motherboard.
Set the keyboard so you can access the cable connector underneath. You'll have to unlock the connector before you can release the cable and remove the keyboard.
Carefully lift up the keyboard. Disconnect the keyboard from the motherboard . remove old keyboard and replace with the one you bought. WARNING! Be very careful with the connector. Lift the tab, as it releases the connection. You cannot replace the connector if you accidentally break it. The connector is permanently attached to the motherboard. If it's broken, the whole motherboard has to be replaced.
here is a video for a DV6000 series, same concept -- to give you the idea on how it's done
You need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: - www.hp.com/#Support
Check ebay, look for a whole top panel with broken LCD glass. Somebody usually parts out the whole thing. If you were in the states it would be easy to find a shop or scrap computer parts store. But overseas I am not sure of how it is done there.
These can be tricky to snap back into place. YOu have to make sure the wire used to help hold the spacebar in place is in correctly before you can snap it back on.
You have to make sure it is on the correct way or you will install it backward and it will look funny and get stuck. If you fail to put it back on correctly you can always use a butterknife or a flathead screwdriver to pop it off and try again.
Are any of the connection parts damaged? Does it still look like it will reconnect?
