If the plastic scissor is broken or the end clips are broken you will have to replace it LINK
hp uses 4 or 5 different type of plastic key holder so if you need one be sure you order the right one

    There is a replacement guide that comes with it. Sometimes you can look under the key and see if the tab slots are intact if they are you should be able to depress the key and wiggle it to lock it in.

    On my dell i have a X scissor plastic piece a small gray cup and the key. place the cup in the center, the plastic scissor has 2 tabs on top and a clip on the bottom, clip the scissor in place then press the top into the tabs, place the key on top and gently press and it locks in place.

    each keyboard is only a little different, they use 4-5 types as standard.

    You could just order a whole new keyboard then have replacement keys on hand.

The keys are available on ebay individually. Look at the key mechanism closely, sometimes it is not broken, just snapped apart. If you're brave you can take the cap off of a working key to see how it's supposed to be installed. You can repair it yourself or have a third party laptop repair service do it for you. You can try to replace the entire part yourself, it is available on any auction website. Also, there is a Laptop repair guide that teaches you how to install the keyboard urself.

How to Disassemble an HP Pavilion DV6000


The HP Pavilion DV6000 is one in a popular line of consumer-oriented laptops produced by HP. Relatively inexpensive, the Pavilion DV6000 is a good all-around value for most users. Taking apart an HP Pavilion DV6000 is not an easy chore and if you plan to use the laptop again, it is important you know what you are doing or you have a large appetite for risk. If the above doesn’t describe you, consider taking the HP in for professional repair or upgrade. Otherwise, follow the steps below to disassemble the HP Pavilion DV6000.
18385245_1.jpg?w=200 1、Prepare a clear workstation. Turn off the laptop and remove all power components including the cord and the battery. (Turn the laptop over and you will find the tab to push and pop out the dv6000 battery.) Also remove any peripheral attachments like card readers and USB devices.
90-04208-003_original-hp-pavilion-dv8000z.jpg?w=250 2、Turn the HP Pavilion dv6000 upside down and unscrew all the screws you find. Try to keep them separate by size so you can put them back in the same spot when and if you decide to reassemble the laptop.
3、Remove the hard drive and memory modules by pulling up on the rectangular compartments. The memory is located in the central compartment (remove by spreading latches and pulling up), and in most HP models the hard drive is located to one side.
4、Remove the optical CD/DVD drive by pulling on the drive face to the left and out of the laptop. Remove the WiFi card by disconnecting the gold connectors on the antenna and pulling the card from its slot.
5、Turn the hp dv6000 back over and remove the keyboard and power panel/media touch pad. Carefully pry the power panel up with a piece of hard plastic near the power button on the left side. Be careful when pulling not to yank the power connection as you might accidentally rip out a wire. Pull back the keyboard to reveal the connections. Disconnect the connections by carefully pulling on the tabs with your thumb and forefinger. If they are tight, wiggle them back and forth while pulling on them to loosen them.
6、Remove the screws that were underneath the power pack/media touch pad. Carefully pry up the top casing and set it aside.
7、Detach all visible connections to the motherboard by pulling gently on them, wiggling them if they are stuck. Gently pull up from the right side of the motherboard and remove. The HP laptop is now fully disassembled.

I am having trouble figuring out how to enter problems to find logarithmic functions


Let me give you a general recipe to familiarize yourself with any calculator, if you are averse to reading the manuals.
Most function will work in one of two ways.
1st way
Enter the number, then press the key,; the result is displayed.immediately.

Second way
Press the function key ( a left parenthesis may be displayed) enter the number (close the right parenthesis if there was a left one) press the = or EXE or ENTER keys.

Try the two ways described above to calculate the following values. The answers are given. Here log is he decimal logarithm and ln is the natural logarithm.


log(1)=0
ln(1)=0
ln(2)=0.693147181
log(2)=0.301029996
ln(100)=4.605170186

log(10)=1 (= number of zeros after the 1)
log(100)=2. (= number of zeros after the 1)
log(1000)=3 (number of zeros after the 1)
log(10000)=4 (number of zeros after the 1)

Laptop HP Pavillion dv6647nr (a dv6000 family) F11 key Problem


Did you format the drive or just repair it"??

Access BIOS and have a look in case that key stroke is disabled in there.

Sounds like the CD has overwritten that part of the HP registry....they have their own.

My laptop sound not working


Try reinstalling the sound drivers to make sure you don't have a software problem. Download the drivers from HP here. Getting them from the manufacturer is a good idea since you'll get the latest version. (The link is to the page for the basic dv6000. Your model may have a different number but the whole series should use the same audio drivers.)

After installing the drivers make sure you have the sound settings properly adjusted in Control Panel, and that the volume is turned up. This should solve your troubles. If you still have no sound but all is right with Windows, you'll need to have your hardware checked out. The on-board audio may have failed, or it could be as simple as a connector that has come loose on the main board.

My ibm thinkpad key ""Q" came loose


You have to work with it and don't be scared of it. If you easily take another one off you will see how it goes on. It is a puzzle. You might want to take it to a shop because you can't replace single key's. Not that I have found anyway.
