Sounds like your keyboard is going bad or already has. Try to plug in an external keyboard to see if the same thing occurs. If the Keyboard works then you no for certain it is your Keyboard. Let me know!

Press the Fn-F10 combination to deactivate the overlay keyboard (numerical pad). The Fn key is the one to the right of the Left CTRL key.

sometimes you have to program the keyboard and mouse with the receiver.

The receiver should have a small button. Might be hidden somewhere on some models, but not invisible. Most of the time you have to use a paperclip or a pen tip to push and hold the button. The light on the receiver should go blinking. The keyboard and mouse have the same type of button, somewhere under it. Press and hold the keyboard button while the light on the receiver is blinking. The receiver light will blink. Press and hold the button under the mouse till the light blinks.
Should be working..

(Please note that te procedure may differ from model to model. If the keyboard and mouse are new, they should have instructions. If not then the manufacturers website should have info on connecting)

Wheelwriter 1000 beeps when I try to type!

Could be a few things, board, power supply, keyboard or printer.
But there are some things you can check, remove the printwheel and look for debris in that area, unplug and replug the keyboard, if you are really adventurious remove the cover and keyboard and look for paper clips or staples on or under the pc board.

Keyboard not working

My first solution for you would be, press the key Fn at the bottom left side of the keyboard and and the key on the top right hand side called ""num lik"" or ""scroll"". First hold the FN key down and then press only do not hold the num lik key.

Please tell me if you need a better explanation because I think I did not explained myself very clear.

My light under the f10 turns on for not reason and then 0 will start going in all of my username or passwork or whenever I type. Thanks for help Steve

That commonly happens when something a key is stuck. as you are having an issue with two keys the problem is likely dirt or moisture in the keyboard itself. as the f10 and 0 keys are near eachother and also near the edge of the keyboard I am leaning towards something being in the membraine of the keyboard itself. Laptop keyboards tend to be spot welded and or glued making them impossable to take apart and clean properly. if you cant get it cleaned with compressed air you would be best to find a replacement keyboard from the original manufacturer or an otherwise broken laptop from ebay.

Key board is not typing

Hi there.

Try going to the BIOS and testing the keyboard there to see what happens. You do this by tapping the F10 key at start up when you see the HP INVENT splash screen. (The key may be different just keep an eye on the screen and it will say Fx for setup), try using the up and down arrows here. If it works then it probably just a windows problem, reinstalling the drivers should fix that, if not, or you're not able to get to the BIOS, try a different keyboard and see what happens. If the external works but the internal keyboard fails to function, you maybe looking at a hardware problem from what you are describing. Let me know what happens and we'll go from there! :-)

?The CD or DVD Drive is not inserted".....error message

You may have pressed the Fn (function key) and F10 by accident at some time, pres Fn and F10 again to turn off the embedded cursor keypad, this enables/dissables the light grey labeled keys. This is all i can find related to that key, otherwise the other function is a light to show the dvd is active, but that icon doesnt look like a 4 leaf clover. This may be the problem when you type, so either the keyboard sensors are faulty or turn off the Fn F10 cursor use, or go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the next window look down to ythe line that says keyboards, click '+'sign and on the line below right click then select uninstall. Restart notebook and the keyboard will self install again hopefully the problem will be solved.
