Question about HP Pavilion dv7-1020us Notebook
HP DV7..some keys don't register [g, h, ', backspace]. i'm using onscreen keyboard to type. brand new computer. this problem occurred several months ago, but it seemed to resolve itself after waiting and rebooting. there's no dust underneath. what's wrong? is there a reset function. the laptop keyboard setting is the same as when i bought it.
Hey guys, I just had this problem, I have alot of problems with my DV7 laptop, top panel started malfunctioning, then it thought i was turning the volume up and down by myself, also my g h ' and backspace stopped working along with other problems that I don't want to bore you guys with, whats the answer? Remove the battery for 10-15 seconds and clean the connectors and this has ALWAYS fixed all my problems. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem and looked everywhere for a solution. Eventually I did was was suggested above, took off my keyboard and re-affixed the connector cable ribbon to its connector. It solved my problem perfectly and it wasn't hard at all.

It sounds like the keyboad is faulty or not plugged into the system board correctly. If you know how to remove the key board, try to re-seat the laptop. If not your laptop will be under warranty and I suggest that you take it to a repair shop for repair.
Where do you live, if in Canada I can direct you to an HP repair shop in your area.
