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.

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

My son hit a few keys and now the are all jumbled. I hit a "P" and get the "*", an "L" gives me "2". How do I fix this?


Sounds like a spill on the keyboard to be honest, but assuming that its a result of your son hitting the keyboard there may be a key stuck down somewhere.
get a knife and ensure all keys are restored back to the up position.by lightly lifting them one by one.

You can either free up the key or you could just plug in a usb keyboard and try that. Be very careful when trying to free up the key they are fragile, did you spill anything on the keyboard. It might not be stuck just shorted out.
Try the usb keyboard option first.

If a neighbor will let you,disconnect their keyboard and try it on yours.If it works normal,the problem is the keyboard.They are fairly cheap to buy brand new.If it does not go away,something is wrong,most likely the IC which interprets the keyboard signal and converts it to letters.It sounds most likely to be the keyboard because it is a few characters consistently.Perhaps something was spilled in that section as they are quite close together.Good luck,Greg

Your keyboard logic chip is in need of therapy.

Replacement of keyboard warranted.

Now, I thought that it might be a redesignation of your language code, but that proved not to be the case.

Check to see if your shift, control, alt, or other modifier keys are stuck on your keyboard. These can cause your keyboard to act erratically. Also, if this is a wireless keyboard, you may need to change the batteries, as this can also cause a keyboard to act erratically.

Scrambled keyboard


Have you tried cleaning and reseating the zif connector that connects the keyboard to the motherboard? Depending on how many cats and kids bang on the laptop, that can cause a problem. Another possibility is using an external keyboard and see if the same thing happens. If so, look to see if a keyboard program of some sort is running. If the external keyboard works fine, then you will need to replace the internal one, or just continue using the external one.
