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.

Wont turn on


1.Plug the Inspiron's AC power cord into a power outlet and try to power on the laptop again. By far the most common cause of a laptop's not powering on is a dead battery.
2.Plug the AC adapter into a different outlet to check for a "dead" outlet. If you have the cable plugged into a surge protector, plug the cord into a different slot on the surge protector or "bypass" the surge protector by plugging the cable into an electrical outlet. If the Inspiron now powers on, replace the surge protector or have an electrician examine any "dead" outlets in the home.
3.Open the battery bay on the underside of the Inspiron by sliding the battery bay latch release lock upward and the battery bay latch release to the right. Once both latches are released, the battery bay should open.
4.Remove the battery.
5.Purchase a compatible replacement battery for laptop. Be aware that using an incompatible battery can cause damage to your computer. If you have any doubt as to compatibility, the best option is to purchase the replacement battery directly from your laptop's manufacturer.
6.Install the new battery by following the battery-removal procedure in reverse order. Once the new battery is installed, try again to power on the laptop. If there is still no power, seek professional repair advice.

I hope you find it very helpful.

it's more likely you haven't put the ribbon cable back properly. try removing the keyboard again and reinsert the ribbon cable carefully - remeber there is a bable grip that needs to opened to remove the cable and closed again after insertion to maintain contact

N, H, T and Backspace keys suddenly not working.


You can try blowing it out with compressed air, but you will probably need to remove the keyboard to make sure nothing was spilled or stuck in there. You should be able to remove the keyboard by removing the battery, then removing the keyboard securing strip, and then you should be able to take a screwdriver and pry the keyboard up and out.

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
