Keyboard problem with

Im having problem with my NEC LAVIE LL500/6 laptop, the letter "h" continuosly pressed even it is not physically pressed. I dont think the problem is with my OS because it seems to be pressed even in the start-up screen before windows is loaded. Could anyone give me advice what to do? do I need to replace the keyboard?

    I have the same problem but with the 'q' key. It also runs before the OS can load. The problems seems to come & go but has become more annoying most recently.

    I often open notepad & allow it to run which seems to possibly be to infinity. I usualy press some other key to make it (temporarily) stop.

    Have previously tried using compressed air to clean the qkeyboard (lol - thereq's the 'q' !) but this is usually a short term treatment.

I must agree that you have a keyboard problem only.
No KB replacement should be necessary. One solution is to disassemble the KB and clean the circuit board with warm soap and water and then with alcohol. Then clean the mating contact pad (the part that is just under the key)...these pads are conductive material that lose conductivity when dusty. This is assuming your KB is the printed switch type. However, if you have the more durable type with individual switch mechanisms for each key, use the same approach but just clean the "h" key...that h switch assembly may need to be disassembled. I have cleaned these by carefully looking for the plastic latching mechanism and then inserting jeweler's screwdrivers just at these points to carefully stretch the plastic just enough to allow disassembly. Then look for the metal contacts and clean them with a good ink pen eraser.
Overall, This can be a very tedious task, so expect to put about 4 hours into it. With practice, I have cleaned complete KB's in about 1/2 hour including removal from laptop and reassembly..

NEC lavie LL560/M how do i turn off numlock key? whe i open my laptop its olwys in numlock

It may be set up in bios to enable that at boot but that really shouldn't be set to that by default. So I'd assume someone played in setup ?

To turn it off so you get a normal keyboard press and hold down the FN key then press (it should be) F11 You should maybe notice a light go out indicating it is turned off and you will then have a normal keyboard. That should be all it takes. If not then just reply here and we would have to check the setup etc which can be a bit more involved but nothing major to worry about.

I have a nec lavie lap top the has no hard drive i would like to buy one but dont know how to find the model number

This is one example,

A Harddrive's physical size is rated from it's Width. How wide across is it.

A Notebook PC harddrive is 2.5 inches across in width. (2 and a half inches)

A Desktop PC harddrive is 3.5 inches across in width.

1) You need a 2.5 harddrive.

There are two types of Harddrive technology used;
The older IDE (PATA), and the newer SATA.

The NEC LaVie S Notebook PC uses a Harddrive with the IDE (PATA) technology.

2) You need a 2.5 IDE (PATA) harddrive.



The original harddrive amount size in GigaByte's was 20GB.
{Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
A Byte is considered to be 8 characters. Whether the characters are Numbers, Letters, or Symbols}

Do I know what the largest harddrive in GB's is that can be installed?
I need the Exact model number from the bottom of the laptop.

NEC = Manufacturer
LaVie = Model Line
S = Model Series

The exact specific model number is on the bottom of the laptop. Usually in a white sticker.
This page denotes a few model numbers, I'll use them as examples,

Scroll down to the bold NEC Lavie S heading, and look at the model number examples.

With this information I can look to see what hardware is used, and possibly harddrive size limit.

Post back in a Comment.
