Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Keyboard's keys sometimes don't respond

Sometimes at random some numbers on my keyboard doesn't work along with some letters. For instant one minute keys 1,2, and 3 won't respond but if maybe 10 minutes later they will work again.
Sometimes if 1,2, and 3 doesn't work I would simply slide my finger across 6,5,4 than to 3,2, and 1, then it would some how work.
My G/f's previous later model hp laptop did the same thing and sometimes her brand new later model doesn't that same thing.

I also did research thinking that maybe it's a bad driver, but I couldn't find a driver download anywhere.

It is not a driver it is a keyboard that is having troubles itself unfortunately, you can try to find new one on eBay since that ones printed wires sort of are broken. What happens is that your keyboard pops out a little and disconnects some letters so you need to press in the middle to get it back to work, the same thing was happening to previous one.

Some keys are not working on Starup (Random)


Your problem seems to be from the keyboard. Even if it looks good if the keyboard tape is out of whack or some key is no longer working, it can happen that you say, so I change the keyboard.

Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.


Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

When you press some letters in the keyboard it writes different characters and leters


I'm not sure how to tell you to correct the problem but the same thing happened to me and really messed with my head until I found out that there are several setting for different languages. The keys apparently mean something different from our language. Go in and reset your keyboard . Some have a drop down box that will let you choose your language. I wish I could tell how to correct it but I don't know what kind of computer is. The Control panel should a place about keyboards and let you change it there.

Hi! my acer aspire one notebook keyboard not working. i tried to restore the system but still not working. sometimes it works but it automatically write letters without touching any keys. we also tried to...


There might be some sticky stuff under the keys. It could also be that the plastic, or rubber that acts as a spring to keep the keys sticking onto the controller is getting weak. This can happen to keys overtime.

Try the following:

1. Turn the laptop off
2. Press the keys several times and compare the feedback for all keys.
You'll notice the difference.
3. Carefully take off the faulty key from the keyboard and clean using clean cloth, or ear buds.
- Make sure you know what you're doing as this can damage the keys if you're not careful.
4. Fit the keys back.

If the above doesn't work then am afraid you need to buy a new keyboard. You can find this on online stores like ebay.

hope it helps.
