Dont try to replace, its soldered to your motherboard so youll have to replace the whole thing. Just buy a USB keyboard.

Loose keyboard connection


You will have to either repair the connection with a soldering iron, replace it (which means finding a connector from another board and desoldering that one, then desoldering yours and installing the good one), or simply change to a USB keyboard.

By far the easiest thing to do is change to a USB keyboard. You could also use a simple USB to PS2 converter if you don't wish to change keyboards, the converter would simply allow you to plug your keyboard into a USB slot on your computer.

HP Pavilion Slimline won't start up


Hi, I have seen many of these act up. Most likely the power supply is out, and needs replacing. However it is a special proprietary part, and may need to be special ordered. Also these PC's have had problems with motherboards failing. I really recommend having a local shop check it out, to make sure your not buying a power supply when you need a motherboard. Hope this helps, if it does please rate my solution.

NO SIGNAL NO KEYBOARD NO MOUSE


Looks like one key on your keybord is constantly depressed specially if you are using a keyboard which is made by combining 3 layers of semitransparent plastic sheets with a rubber cup under each key. These keyboard fail without any warning and sudeenly one day when u switch on ur PC, it will make the motor, fan,running, but NO DISPLAY. Is this what has occured? If so and even if the PS2 connector of the keybord(if u are not using a USB keyboard), check for looseness or any bent pin. Remove the jack and try starting ur PC. If it behaves (soundwise & vibrationwise) as earlier then its definitely keyborad problem. If possible, before buying a new one try any keyborad which is working condition and check If problem remais, then do post your feedback & i'll try my best....sodeep

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.
