Keyboard and display of HP 6720s

Model number: HP 6720s
Product number: GR649EA

1.
When pressing the top row of keys (F9, F12, pause, delete), the play (sagging) is about 4-6 mm, the left side of keyboard is normal (1-2 mm).
The keyboard and switch cover was replaced (top cover hinges are not clipped in properly) but did not fix issue, I suspect its either due to system board not installed properly when it was replaced or the top cover is defective. I went to local PC dealer and compared various models such as HP 8730, 6730, 6710, etc. and none of them have the same problem I experience. The 3 laptops mentioned have about 1 mm play (sagging) when pressing the (F9 - delete) top row of keys.

2.
Display aint great, is it due to Intel 965 Express Chipset Family Display adapter (driver version: 7.14.10.1437), how can I check if display card and LCD is ok (are not damaged).


Regards
Kevin

    Doubt laptop was dropped. No dents/damage anywhere.
    Keyboard and Switch cover was replaced to try and remedy keyboard issue, made no difference.
    Display is ok, I guess the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 graphics card ain't anything close to Nvidia graphics cards.
    Can anyone else shed some light on my keyboard issue ?

Can't get past lock code


Laptop computers have the advantage being portable and self-contained, but among their drawbacks is a keyboard without a separate number keypad. While for most applications number keypads are unnecessary, they can be useful for data entry. Laptops sometimes provide a number keypad by giving certain keys double duty, allowing them to enter numbers rather than letters when a "Number Lock" setting is turned on. Number Lock, however, can get turned on accidentally, or enabled by an operating system by default, which can really mess up your typing. If typing "M" ends up displaying a "0" on your screen, Number Lock is probably the problem.

Try to locate the function key. On a T-series ThinkPad, it's in the lower left hand corner. It should be labeled "Fn," and the lettering may be blue, green or red instead of white. If your laptop lacks a "Fn" key, use the "Shift" key for Step 3 below instead. Locate the key labeled with "NmLk". On a T-series ThinkPad it shares a key with "ScrLk" which sits on the very top row between the "PrtSc" and "Pause" keys. On other IBM laptops, the "NmLk" key might share a key with "Delete." While holding down the "Fn" key or the "Shift" key, depending on your model, press the "NmLk" key. This should turn off Number Lock and restore your keyboard to its usual state. Number Lock on an IBM laptop is a "toggle" setting. You can turn Number Lock on by following the same steps.

I have an asus eeepc seashell series and i turned it on and it says reboot and select proper boot device and i dont know what that means or how to do it


Power laptop, when asus logo is seen, look down bottom right, press F12 or the number assigned for your model, use the arrows up down keys on the laptop keyboard, highlight hard drive and press enter, this will set the boot order for your hardware to start.

No wireless service on my laptop


Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

If your HP laptop is a wide screen with a full size keyboard and separate numbet keypad then the Prt Scr key also doubles up as the Home key it is located on the top row of keys on the Number keypad.
If your HP laptop is a standard laptop keyboard then the Prt Scr key also doubles as the Scroll key and it is next to the F12 key.

What can I do to unlock my mouse


1. Locate the "function key" on your keyboard (F1 through F12) that has an icon of a touchpad. This is generally a rectangle with two smaller rectangles below it, representing the touchpad and its two buttons.
2. Press and hold the "FN" key, usually found in the lower left area of your keyboard.
3. Press the touchpad function key ("F#," with the "#" representing the number 1 through 12 that you located in step 1), and then release both keys. If this does not enable your touchpad, try holding the "FN" key down and pressing the "F#" key twice in a row.

You need to check your keyboard setting layout , look for it in your control panel and change the layout to either uk or us, which ever applies to you.

Thanks for your support


Remove the keyboard screws first, the screws that secure the keyboard have keyboard symbols next to the screws.
Some Compaq/HP have slide catches along the top edge of the keyboard between the number keys and the Function keys. Usually the slide catches are located between the ESC & F1 key, F4 & F5 key, F8 & F9 keys, F12 & delete keys. Slide these catches towards the front edge of the keyboard (ie. towards the space bar) you should be able to lift the keyboard clear. Don't forget to unclip the ribbon cables on the keyboard.
