    the same problem!!!!! What is going on with this computer. This is the third time I am going through this...

  • Leahf Jun 22, 2008

    wft. my computer HP pavillion DV2000 is doing the same thing. The laptop is on, working fine, but not one button on the keyboard is working. Did anyone find a solution to this? I have tried everything!



    Is there a lock keyboard funtion?



    This is so frustrating!



    Hope someone can help!

    This seems to have happened gradually. Occasionally when i would wake the machine up the keyboard wouldn't respond when i typed the password. Now it has become a permanent problem. The touchpad also is unresponsive. I used an external keyboard and mouse successfully, but that defeats the purpose of having a compact laptop. Is this a common problem on this model?

Remove all power from your comp. without shutting down. remove external power first. then remove your battery. the drivers are overloaded and confused. this worked for me.

I recommend the above listed solutions. It worked for me. Unplugged power cord and remove the battery while it's still hot. Wait about 10 seconds. Plug it again and boot up. Things will work the normal way. Can't explain why, but I think it's like a master reboot.

What do you mean by taking out the battery? Is this the cord on the right side of the laptop? I also sometimes get a myseterious beep and the keyboard and pad freezes up and then i cant use the laptop and have to switch it off manually. Can anyone help?

I had the same problem. As indicated above, I disconnected to power, removed the battery, reconnected the battery and restart the computer, then everything went fine.

Might be the keyboard has gone out of order. You can try external USB keyboard to check it. If that works your laptop keyboard must have gone out.

Removing the battery from the laptop worked for me. I was going to send it in cause its still under warranty. Thought the keyboard was actually dead since it did not even worked to get into bios. I also tried a Linux live cd. Removing the battery worked lol. Strangest thing ever.

Posted on Aug 13, 2009

I just had the same problem. I took the battery out and put it back in and it worked for me.

I just got me a hp pavilion dv 2000 two days ago use it was missing the charger i turn it on and is asking me for a password i cant get in contact with the person who sold me it.


If windows xp is installed and there is no password in administrator account you can login by using the following method:
Press CTRL + ALT + DELETE.
A new window will appear, type administrator as username and leave password field as blank then press enter or ok.
You will be logged in.

If you are using windows 7 or vista then this method will not work.There is different method for windows 7 or vista.
Let me know if there is any problem.

Hp pavilion dv 6000 keyboard not responding.Some of the keys will not respond at all. I checked the drivers and tried to update, but says most current installed. It has been doing this for about 6 months....


You need to check in the BIOS if the keys when typed does make beeping noise. Set BIOS defaults.
If the keys are still not working than boot the sys to the recovery manager and press ctrl+d to open the CMD box and test the key board there.
Boot the sys 3 times to BIOS and set BIOS defaults,
If it doesnt work try the latest update and drivers for the sys. If it doesnt work that means the keyboard needs to be repaired

The keyboard, built in and external mouse do not respond.


If BIOS menu has User password set then nothing will work until you type in the password. The keyboard will appear not to be working until correct pwd is typed. Try entering your password like this
pwd1<Enter> pwd2<Enter> pwd3<Enter>
where pwd1 is your guess at the password and <Enter> is when you press the <Enter> key on keyboard.

HP DV 2000 keyboard not responding on all keys. Laptop is 2 years old. Tried all usual remedies including keyboard replacement. Works on a USB plug in keyboard. Any ideas please


If a section of keys isn't working at all, you'll likely need a new keyboard.  If the problem is with IOPUJKL:M keys you may have the Numlock on.

KEY BOARD


It's possible that your numlock is stuck on. I believe on those notebooks you hit FN + Scroll (You should see Numlock in a box underneath the Scroll text on that key).
