    Yes, the Caps lock light when I press it. But, once I press the Caps I can not uncap it. The light stays on. Now, playing while I play with it... it went off. Then it doesn't work...

    I will try this procedure on the laptop by checking it on the connection of cable or loose keypad.

It sounds to me that you have either, A) a loose keyboard connection underneath, which can be easily repaired by removing the keyboard from it's mountings and reseating the connecting cable, or B) IRQ Fault errors that are preventing the system from receiving the subsequent key presses and can be best diagnosed and repaired by a qualified service technician. I'm not sure how the keyboard is held in place exactly, so I cannot precisely tell you how to remove to check the connection. What I can tell you is that there will be screws on the underside that assist with the hold down.

Hope this helps!

This afternoon my laptop was working fine, then the keyboard started messing up, when I pressed any letter it came up with 4 other letters. Then i pressed '9' once and it continuously typed 9 until I


First thing I would ask is this. Was anything spilled on the key board? I had a situation similar to this and I found that my son spilled a Sprite and wiped it up but didn't tell me about it. One way to check this is to hook an aftermarket keyboard that runs off your USB2 port and see if the keys work correctly that way. If they do, I would suspect that something was spilled into your laptop keyboard.

How i can enble function key


HP laptops have the ability to lock the blue special function keys on, making numerical data entry easier on laptop models that do not have the room for dedicated numerical keypads. Because the key combination to lock the function keys is so simple, however, it is easy for those who wouldn't normally use this ability to do so accidentally. When the function keys are locked, pressing certain keys will result in numbers being typed rather than letters. Unlock the function keys to alleviate this issue.

Press the "Fn" and "Num Lk" keys on the keyboard simultaneously. The "Number Lock" indicator light should turn off, indicating that the letter keys will once again type letters when pressed. This combination should work on the majority of recent HP laptops. If it does not, try one of the alternate key combinations in this article's remaining steps. Press the "Fn" and "F11" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. If the combination does not work, continue to the next step. Press the "Fn" and "Scroll Lock" keys simultaneously, then attempt to type a letter. Continue to the next step if this does not work. Press the "Fn," "Scroll Lock" and "F11" keys simultaneously.

Make it confirm that you are facing this problem is it because of windows problem or virus problem or may be your keyboard faulty.
to do that you need to have a LINUX Live CD, it may be any linux cd which can be used as a live bootable window.
After booting with Linux CD if the key board works fine than you are facing problem because of virus or window, to solve this the best thing to do is re-installing the OS.
Even after booting from LINUX the problem persist the same than you need to remove the key pad from the laptop and try cleaning it and put it back.
Still same problem than you may need to change you pad.

SHIFT KEYS NOT WORKING PROPERLY


Please try to deactivate the Fn (function) key. That will help you get rid of your problem. Press Fn key + Numlock key once and try again. You can also try pressing the Fn key once and type letters in any word processor program with the key combination everytime you press the Fn key once. E.g. open the notepad, press Fn once and after that press ) with Shift.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
