Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

2 Answers

The spacebar on my HP pavilion dv3z drives me nuts. It only spaces when it hit it right in the middle. My usual movement hits the right hand side, and produces no space. Can I replace the keyboard? The spacebar is cheap flexible plastic unlike the usual rigid plastic or metal I'm used to.

If the system is out of warranty, you can replace the single offending keyboard key by going here to identify it. http://www.machinaelectronics.com/store/keyboardkeys/HP_Pavilion_DV9000_DV9000Z


If you don't want to get that involved, the only easiest solution is to replace the entire keyboard. Check to ensure that this part that should work with your laptop here:

When I hit the spacebar it jumps 2 spaces


Look closely at the space bar. try to lift it on the right side and on the left. The bar may have popped out of place. Specifically a metal rod that holds the space bar in place. Or the space bar is not resetting fast enough, ( soda, honey, something sticky) causing the bar to reset slowly.

My dog knocked over my Compaq keyboard. Now the divided spacebar is opposite what it should be. Instead of spacing on the right spacebar I have to hit the left side. How do I fix this?


Pull the space bar off by using your fingers. Underneath, you'll find a metal rod. Take note on which way it is facing, and how it fits. Make sure nothing in broken under the space bar, then put the space bar back on making sure it hooks in correctly.

How do you clear a tab someone preset. when I get to the far right of page and hit return it will on return to a tab. How do I clear all the preset margins or tabs.?? thanks


To clear margins, you have to hit the return button to find the left margin, then hit margin release and back space to move the margin left or spacebar to move to the right, then hit left margin button to set the new position. Right margin now. Hold spacebar down and find right margin position, hit margin rease and either spacebar to the right or backspace to the left to the new margin position then hit right margin button to set the new position. Tabs now. hit the tab key, when it goes to the first set tab, hit the tab clear key, then hit the tab key again, then tab clear again etc.

Spacebar puts monitor to sleep


Hello,
You can reboot your HP Pavilion, and while rebooting go to BIOS by constantly tapping F1. And then there has to be an option which you need to enable "Wake up by Space bar" option. Once you enable the option, save the BIOS settings and then try whether the issue persists or not.

When I hit Fn and Spacebar still no backlight?


You might have to remove the tiny switch that is under the Right hinge. Your laptop thinks that the top is still closed. Just remove it and cut the two wires. Closing the lid won'd sleep the PC anymore, so be sure to hibernate before closing the lid.

I have been trying to scan old photos and save into a file but it just doesn't seem to want to work. I have done it before but this is just different from the last time. Driving me NUTS Dianne


Hey smarter_mum,
When scanning photos with a scanner and having difficulties processing the photo's, it can be a number of problems.
1.) Make sure the Scanner's Ports are clean, blow into them and get any dust out.
2.) Make sure the Scanner's Ports are plugged in fine.
3.) Replug the scanner, and wait a couple minutes.

A nifty trick I found when Having problems such as this, is to Screenshot your photos.
What this means, if you don't already know, is if you can get the photo's to show up on your PC and just can't save them, just Hit the "prt sc" button on your keyboard, this stands for Print Screen, then open paint and hit CTRL + V, or Right-Click and Paste. This will enable you to save it in paint, and then just open it as a .JPG file. the PRT SC button is right above the Backspace button usually, and if your on a laptop, you will have to hit FN which is to the left of the spacebar, hold FN and hit prt sc.

Hope this helped - CA

I have an HP Pavilion dv5224 laptop. pe I find that when I ty at a clip, things like what just happened (my cursor somehow jumps to another place in the para--from ty to 1st line pe). This happens pretty...


Does your laptop have touchpad that acts as a mouse if you don't have a mouse plugged in (it's usually directly below the spacebar)? If any part of your hand accidentally brushes that sensitive rectangular area, it will cause the mouse cursor to jump around.

There is usually a button you can push at the top of the rectangular touchpad to turn it off while you're typing. On my HP laptop it has a blue light, and when I push the button it turns red.
