Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

1 Answer

Another keyboard skipping until I removed the dead battery, now it works.

Thanks for the advice about the heat and battery!!!!!

If I purchase a NEW battery will my keyboard skipping key problem re-occure after I spend the money on a new battery. I did purchase a three inch platform to cool my laptop some. Maybe the new battery wont take a charge like some say? I dont want to waste my money on a new battery OR worse yet have my keyboard problem come back, skipping keys as I type just because the battery is in the machine! Dont know if purchasing battery will 1) effect my keyboard or 2) not take a charge.

    My text skipping all over the place. I run on AC all the time. The battery is never used. I have tried to clean around the keyboard but to no avail. I will try getting a new battery next.

    Thanks. I had the same problem with my keyboard skipping. After removing my dead battery, it worked fine. Now I can buy a new battery instead of a new machine.



    Did the problem re-occur when you installed your new battery?

Turn off the touch pad mouse, there is a button to do that. If the problem is still present then remove the mouse driver and go to Synaptic web site and download the most current driver. HP is the place to get the driver though. For some strange reason the problem is present more under XP than it is under Vista. On a Vista the problem is fixed. Either you can disable it or use external USB mouse instead.

I have the Logitech EX100 wireless keyboard and mouse. We had to change the battery as it went dead. Now that we have new batteries in we cannot get them to work. Any suggestions?


Do a Hard Reset method to clear the keyboard and mouse settings and reconnect it back to your computer:

• Remove the batteries from the keyboard
• Press the Connect button on the receiver for 10 seconds.
• Press the Connect button on the mouse.
(You might need a pencil tip or other small tip to press the connect button.)
• Insert the batteries back into the keyboard.
• Press the Connect button on the receiver.
• Press the Connect button on the keyboard.
Hope this helps

Please rate this solution, thanks!

Touchpad on Toshiba WIreless Keyboard PA3705D does not work. Help


I have the Toshiba PA3705D-1ET1 keyboard.
I experienced the same thing: keyboard working, but not the touchpad. I reinstalled all drivers that I could think off, but nothing helped. What actually did work for me was: remove the batteries of the keyboard for 10 seconds, then put them back in (while PC is turned on). Also ensure that the batteries are full and that you are in range of your PC (let's say less than 4 meters).

The keyboard skips about half of keys including spaces.Help!


This sounds like maybe the keyboard got wet or some food/liquid spilled on it. Is this on a laptop or desktop? If it's a laptop, try to dry it out, if not, have the keyboard replaced by a professional like me. If it's a desktop, spring for a new keyboard, they're only about $5-10.

Guru.. Thanks for your advice. I tried every suggestion on the link you gave me but nothing worked. My SD750 is still dead with the lens fully extended. What else could I try? Another thing... I bought it...


Did you lose power totally (nothing is working or lighting up)? If so, then see this post instead: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/simple-fix-for-dead-cameras-that-wont.html You can skip the tip concerning NiMH batteries, but instead focus on the other tips. If you're unable to resolve this with these tips, then the problem may be a blown fuse inside the camera. Unfortunately the fuses are installed for safety only (to prevent battery fire), are extremely small, soldered to the circuit board, and aren't really meant to be replaced by the consumer. As such, your next step if the above steps don't work is to first contact Canon to see if they'll honor warranty repair (if in US call 1-800-OK-CANON). If not, then consider professional repair or retiring the camera for a new one.

Keyboard intermittent


There might be a problem with the keyboards PS2 port. You can bypass the PS2 port all together by buying a PS2 Y-adapter to usb port. This Y adapter will allow you to plug your PS2 mouse & keyboard into it and than you plug the other end into a free usb port. You do not have to plug the PS2 mouse in if you do not want to. Just plug in the keyboard. If your keyboard functions than there is a prolem with the keyboard's PS2 port. The PS2 Y-adapter to USB runs about $12.00 to $15.00. You can find one at Wallmart.

Keyboard & mouse are dead


I just fixed this problem by doing the following:

Hard power-off (hold the power button until the laptop turns off)
Unplug the AC adaptor
Remove the battery
Plug in the AC adaptor
Hold ctrl and turn the power on. You should arrive at a black screen.
Hard power-off again, then turn the power on.

Problem with the laptop keyboard (HP pavilion zd8000)


Firstly give yout keyboard a hoovering gently, then if no change it could be the keyboard driver, this will be either on a recovery disc supplied with the laptop or on a recovery partition on your harddrive. You won't need to do a complete recovery, just a re instalation of the keyboard driver
