Your keyboard is actually one big circuit board and the keys touch small pads under them and over time these can fail or the sensor feeding the panel under the keys can fail. Open up a word program and test each and every key on the board. If the back key is the only one then it is most likely just a failure of that key and for the time being you can use the left arrow to back up...but you will need to replace the keyboard. I believe these are non serviceable pieces and should be replaced as a whole. I'll include a link below for the service manual for that model Compaq. Just copy and paste the guide to your internet browser address bar and hit enter. File is aPDF file and will need acrobat reader of foxit reader to open. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

Keyboad doesnt work hp pavilion dv9823ea laptop


Hi:
The keyboards on laptops are somewhat fragile, and would be the first thing that should be tried. They are not too hard to change, and relatively inexpensive, about $15 on ebay. You could plug in a external, USB keyboard to use temporarily too.

Try getting the cans of compressed air you would get at an office supply store, power down the laptop and trydrying the board with short bursts of air, there may be some dampness under the keys interfereing with the imput signals from the key pads.

I cannot use my g and h or backspace button's


The 1st reason may be:
-You may need to update the driver software of the keyboard. Try entering the following URL:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodTopCategory?product=96120&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us

Then select your product, then look for a keyboard driver. Download it and install it.

And the 2nd one reason, may be:
-The keyboard keys may be broken, and doesn't work.

If the first step doesn't work, try buying an external mini keyboard, that can be found in any PC Service shop, and it also have a low-cost.

GOOD LUCK :)
