Sounds like the switch that is triggered when you press this key has gone bad. A replacement keyboard should fix this issue. You should be able to order a replacement keyboard from HP and install it yourself, or contact a place like Geek Squad to do the install for you.

That being said, it's simply possible that there's some crumb of food or chunk of dust under that key. Get a can of compressed air (specifically for computers) and flip your laptop over and spray into the keys around your enter key. Hopefully, it's as simple as this.

If this has helped with your problem please remember to give me approprate 'thumbs up' for my assistance. Thanks, and good luck!

How to reset the password of polycom hdx 7000


You can use the hardware restore button on the Polycom HDX system to reset
the system in one of these ways:
• Restoring configuration-Restores the configuration, which resets most
system settings to default values.

• Factory restore-Completely erases the system and restores it to the
software version and default configuration stored in its factory partition.
If you follow this procedure while a USB storage device is connected, the
system restores from the USB device instead of the system's factory
partition.
The restore button is on the front of the Polycom HDX 9000 series system, as
shown in the following figure.

The restore button is on the front of the Polycom HDX 8000 series, Polycom
HDX 7000 series, and Polycom HDX 4000 systems, as shown in the following
figure.

The restore button is on the left side of the Polycom HDX 4500 system, behind
a wire mesh screen, as shown in the following figure.

Use a paperclip to press the restore button through the wire mesh covering
that side of the system. to reset the HDX Series system we can press the restore button over 15 second.

Enter key doesnt work


well i understand it can be a bothersome issue to not be able to press enter but we have to identify the reason behind it , it could be the circuit is burnt so probably you will have to change the keyboard but as first try and see if the Enter key is functioning in the DOS screen , not in an operating system . press F10 to go to bios screen and therefore go to exit and press Enter , if it doesn't work just press cntl + alt + del and it will restart but with this it will show that the circuit is burnt and you have to replace the keyboard.

Check ebay as there are sellers that will sell you a single key sparing the trouble and expense of replacing the whole keyboard. They will come with detailed instructions.

  1. From the front control panel message, Ready or Ready to Plot, press ENTER.
  2. Press the Up arrow key until I/O Setup appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. Press the Up arrow key until Modular appears, and then press ENTER.
  4. From the front control panel message, Cfg Network=No, press ENTER.
  5. Press the Up arrow key to change to Yes, and then press ENTER.
  6. Using the Arrow keys, scroll to Cfg TCP/IP=No appears, and then press ENTER.
  7. Scroll to Yes, and press ENTER.
  8. Press the Up arrow key until BootP=Yes appears, and press ENTER.
  9. Press the Up arrow key to change to No. Press ENTER (When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP = YES *. The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect. No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.
  10. Press the UP arrow once to get to the IP byte section.
  11. To change the IP byte, proceed as follows:
    1. Press ENTER.
    2. Press the Up or Down arrow key to change the number.
    3. Press ENTER.
    4. Press the Up key to continue to IP Byte2=xxx.

  13. Configure the subnet mask bytes (SM), syslog server IP address (LG), default gateway (GW), and timeout (TIMEOUT) by pressing the ENTER and the Up or Down arrows in the same manner as above. The timeout parameter default is 90 seconds. Up to 3,600 seconds can be configured. If set to zero, the timeout feature of the HP Jetdirect print server is disabled; TCP/IP connections will remain open until closed by the server.
  14. Press PREVIOUS repeatedly, until the Ready to Plot or Ready message appears. Refer to the HP Jetdirect Network Interface Configuration Guide to configure the network operating system.
  15. Press the Up and Down arrow keys simultaneously to save the IP address on a 750/755 plotter. (A page should print and the IP addresses will be saved.)
