Question about HP OmniBook Vt6200 Notebook

1 Answer

Keyboard problems i have a HP vt6200 Omnibook laptop with German Keyboard. Recently my internal harddisk crashed and I replaced with a new IDE disk. I installed Windows XP (English US) afresh. Also installed the necessary drivers downloaded from HP site. Now the german keyboard is not working. It types multiple characters & behaves erratically. When I connect an external US English Keyboard, it works perfect. I tried changing the language/keyboard settings. It didn?t work. I donot want to use German anymore on that laptop. All I want to use is only English. Now I am unable to use the laptop keyboard at all. Pls help

Is the keyboard flexible cable the same pin as the original keyboard? If yes and you are sure the new keyboard is okay, then you can change the language to the preferred language e.g US English, change its position to the first and make it referred. Its should work. You can also check online if there is any keyboard or input driver which when installed can be of help.

SOURCE: English language support on laptop with German Keyboard

The easiest solution will be to locate a replacement laptop keyboard for that model. they arent hard to replace and usually cost between $40 and $80. I would web search HP Spare parts Third party is usually cheaper. Keyboards are pretty common replacements on laptops due to wear an tear. Most are replaced using a small phillips screwdriver. Its likley you can find removal instructions on the web as well (if they dont come packaged with the keyboard.

Clean the keyboard wiith a compressed air can, if that doesn't do the trick try a usb keyboard, if the external keyboard works well then you need to replace the laptops keyboard.

Hi. On my Omnibook 4100 Keyboard following keys do not work. 4,5,r,t,f,g,v,b.. Is this a cable connection fault or circuitry fault that requires a chip replacement. thanking you. Alfons.


If you remove the keyboard you there will be on flat cable running from the keyboard to the laptop. At the end of the cable (the end that goes into your laptop) there is a hm.. "connector" (can't remember the real eng word, sorry)

Pull it out of the socket inside the laptop and reconnect it, making sure its not loose and all should work fine.

I upgraded my hp omnibook 6100 from xp to windows vista. now it tells me that there is no audio device installed. is there a driver i can download for my laptop that is compatible with windows vista?


I had the same problem with my HP when l put vista on it and overcame that problem with using my XP driver. It worked for me no harm in trying your XP driver.

Dark screen, no backlight


I am sure that your BACKLIGHT is dead...Have someone or a tech take a look at it. The problem can be the backlight or the inverter itself... But most likely it's the backlight that goes out. You might be better of getting the LCD screen replace... Unless you find the backlight for that laptop model...

But first, play around with the BRIGHTNESS settings, make sure it's not on VERY LOW...

How do i replace the keyboard on a HP Omnibook 6000? I have removed the panel covering the speakers and removed those screws but something is still hanging up in the middle of the keyboard


Check on the bottom of the Omnibook for a screw that might be holding the keyboard in place. Or it may be a ribbon cable that has to be disconnected. Try to peek under and see.

Hi there.
while you have the external monitor plugged in and you have the display on that monitor, hold down Fn and look for a F key which has a TV/monitor icon on it and hit that key (you may have to hit this once or twice) this is whats called the keyboard toggle switch, if your laptop monitor comes on then the problem is sorted and you can disconnect the external monitor.
Post back with the results please

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

I NEED TO FIND AND REMOVE THE HARD FOR A HP OMNIBOOK XW3


hard? do u mean the harddrive? well the harddrive is slightly slimmer on laptops and looks like the box, harddrives are usually extremely internal depending on the laptop and can be found under the keyboard(open from the bottom).
