Question about HP Compaq Presario V6000T Notebook

1 Answer

Scrambled keyboard All the keyboard keys are scrambled--typing the wrong key/function. Nothing was spilled on it, and I have restored it back a few days. It was working fine, and then the next time I tried to use it, everything was scrambled. It doesn't matter if I reboot, etc. only a couple of keys on my laptop give the wrong letters when used. Can you give me a solution for this

Is it giving you numbers and symbols? do this: Press and hold the function key fn while pressing the num lock key num lk . This will deactivate the integrated keyboard/numeric keypad, and the keys will respond normally.

What is wrong with my laptop? It is as if the shift key is stuck


Go into device manager in windows and delete it and reboot. If it comes back when it detects the keyboard and it works then it was a driver, if it does detect it or it wont work correctly then it is a bad keyboard. You can also try a plug in keyboard to see how it behaves, ps keyboards are not that expensive.

If you are able to clean everything off and it seems to work check out www.ebay.com Type make and model, refine search to keyboard.

Hi

Try system restore. Go to START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>SYSTEM RESTORE>CHOOSE PREVIOUS RESTORE DATES. Use other restore dates if needed.

Or try this

If your laptop keyboard types wrong characters, it is rather a software issue than an hardware one. This can happen if you accidentally press certain keys on your keyboard, which enable a certain kind of function.
Try the following steps in case your laptop keyboard displays wrong characters:
1.Go to the control panel option
Click ? 'Regional and Language Services' ? 'Languages' ? 'Details' ? 'Key Settings'
2.Select the option 'Switch Between Input Languages' and click on 'Change Key Sequence'
3.Ensure that all the check boxes are unchecked in this window and do the same for 'Switch to...(Keyboard Type)'
4.Click ?
'Ok' ? 'Ok' ? 'Apply' ? 'Ok'.
This should solve your problem

Best solution now is to find a replacement keyboard. They are very easy to replace. Also, could use an external keyboard. Not ideal but it works.

As for cleaning, if the coffee had sugar and cream there is not much you can do.

There is one option I hesitate to suggest. Take the keyboard off, run it under warm water and let it dry for a few days before putting it back. May or may not work.

Spilled water on keyboard. a few keys don't work


If this problem occurred recently you might still be able to save the keyboard. However, it is a painstaking method of popping out each of the keys that are not working and cleaning them off (preferably with some contact cleaner) and making sure that there is no corrosion trying to form due to the moisture. Be careful when prying up some keys as some keyboards (especially laptop keyboards) are hard to put back if you don't have the right tools or the know how. I suggest looking up keyboard removal techniques based on the brand of your keyboard/laptop.
Good luck...

Dell lap top keyboard keys "s" and "a" are messed up


Ok, first try looking under the A,S & D keys and see if there is anything stuck in there by those keys.

You can then try blowing with mouth or a can of pressured air to clean it out.

If nothing stuck in there, does the keys feel sticky, if so, then there might have been some liquid spilled on it. Try to dry it out with a hairdryer set on medium to see if that helps.

keep me informed

Hi Lizardo -

The best bet for resolving this problem would be to replace the keyboard. The part can be ordered easily on the internet. It's a replaceable part that's very simple to do.

Take care,
