Re: keyboard fault HP

Hello Barralee
You should modify your "international settings" in the section "details" at control panel to correct that "keyboard distribution"

My HP Pavilion is stuck on the blue screen

While your system is still booting from start, keep hitting F11 to get past that point then proceed with the system recovery.

My desktop keyboard will not type letters. It will only type numbers. I pushed fn & Num Lock that did not work. What can I do?

Press the Start key + R.

type osk in that box and hit enter

On this keyboard, try toggling numlock scrolllock and capslock a few times.

Also, try this too: Fn+Numlk or depending of the model, press the button or Fn + Shift +Numlk

hope this helps

My caps wont turn off

Try this. Press: Start>Accessories>Accessibility>On Screen keyboard. Try turning it off from there. If that doesn't work:
1. Choose Start'Settings'Control Panel and double-click Regional and Language Options.
2. In the Languages tab, click the Details button.
3. In the Settings tab, you should see a button called Key Settings. It may be grayed out. If it is, click the Add button and add another keyboard layout (it doesn't matter which one). Press OK.
4. Back in the Settings tab, click to make sure your original keyboard is highlighted and press the Key Settings button.
5. Now under To turn off Caps Lock, click the radio button next to Press the Shift key. Click OK.
6. Click OK twice more to exit the other two dialog boxes.

- u;ll have to go through u're motherboard user manual to see exactly where the bios reset jumper is ! If u don't have the manual, u will see the battery (is a round and flattened 1.5 cm battery...u cant miss it, is the only one in the computer) somewhere on the motherboard (ussualy in the lower right part of the motherboard). You just have to remove it for 5 seconds or so (force it out of the soket it is in) and then replaceit back. By doing this all the BIOS settings go to the manufacters default settings...

Alternate keys on HP Keyboard


Ctrl + fn + right shift key


Ctrl + fn + right shift key twice

so hold ctrl + fn + right shift key then release the right shift key but keep holding the ctrl + fn keys down then push the right shift key again and that should deactivate it
