Question about PC Laptops
Now and again the 'h' and 'g' and backspace keys on my hp pavilion zv5000 laptop stop working. The problem is intermitent - sometimes it lasts for hours, other times a whole day or more. The keys will eventually start working again for no apparent reason. Restarting has no effect, neither does uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard driver.
This is either the keyboard or keyboard controller. The only way to tell is to replace keyboard. (Usally found on e-bay for about 40.00) then if not the keyboard controller on Motherboard (expensive fix) so, if it is the controller you may want to try an external keyboard at least to keep using the unit at a resonable cost.
