Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t Notebook
I had this same issue with my DV8000 though the main issue with my keyboard was that the computer seemed to think the space bar was being held down and several keys did not work. I opened up the laptop and disconnected the keyboard internally (Note: there are 2 ribbon cables. One for the keyboard and the other for the top funtion keys ie: Power, media controls etc only disconnect the keyboard cable) and installed a usb keyboard to ensure the issue was the keyboard and not the keyboard bios on the motherboard. Once I found this solved the keyboard issue I now have a keyboard on order. Try Amazon or Ebay. I found the keyboard new for $15 as opposed to $70 from HP.
I am still working on correcting an issue with the sound. (Sound stopped working completely)

Clean the keyboard wiith a compressed air can, if that doesn't do the trick try a usb keyboard, if the external keyboard works well then you need to replace the laptops keyboard.

Tips for a great answer:
You can use the accessibility features of Windows to audibly notify you when you've pressed the Caps Lock key. Follow these steps:
Click on Start >> Click Control Panel.
Click Ease Of Access >> Select "Change how your keyboard works" from Ease of Access Center.
Check the Box for Turn on Toggle Keys.
Click Apply. Click OK.
The ToggleKeys feature, when turned on, will beep whenever the Caps Lock, Num Lock, or Scroll Lock keys are pressed.
hope this helps
