Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

Reinstalling a key cover

One of the key-tops (the '2') on the numeric keypad has come off. I can't spot anything that is broken, but haven't been able to find a procedure that puts it back on to stay. I've tried installing the white under-clips then pressing the cover in place-- no go. I've tried leaving the under-clips attached to the key cover and then manipulating the key top assembly into place-- no go.

Does anyone know the proper tweak?

Thanks, - Bill

I know these can be a bit frustrating, but you're just going to have to keep working with it untill it snaps in properly. Unfortunately there is no diagram for these, if you're unsure that you have it together right, I suggest taking another key off to see exactly how it goes together.

My numeric keyboard is not working, the num lock is on.


Have you tried booting up in safe mode to see if it does the same thing? Also check your keyboard to see if there is some type of key combination that locks or unlocks the numeric keypad. If so, usually you will have to hit the FN key or the ALT key or the CTRL key plus some other key to get it to toggle.

My function key is on and i cant figure out how to turn it off


Hi,


To use the embedded keypad

After pressing Fn+F8 to activate the numeric keypad, you must press the Lock key
(in the top row of the keyboard) to turn number lock on or off.
When number lock is on:
• Keys change to the numeric or arithmetic designations printed on the right side of the
keys in the numeric keypad area.
• The Num Lock status indicator is lit.
• To turn off the embedded keypad, press Fn+F8 again.

For further reference of usage of Function keys, check the HP manual:

Numeric keypad affecting laptop


Another common problem. The drivers of the numeric keypad always confuse the NUM lock button. Try playing with the numlock and also if it does not work, try reinstalling the drivers.

Keyboard


The Numeral Lock mode is turned on by pressing the key named "NUM LOCK" which is usually located on the top of the number keypad (on far right side of keyboard).

However, laptop keyboards are different. Most laptops do not have a separate numeral keypad set. Those laptops usually use a blue (or other color-coded) "Fn" key, on the bottom left. You must press that Fn key at the same time as the "Num Lock" key of same colr. Then a light comes on to indicate the mode change, and some alpha-numeric keys on the keyboard now become your numeral keypad. On mine, it is 789, UIO (456), JKL (123) and M (which is zero).

If this is too confusing, you can plug in a cheap full size desktop keyboard, using the USB or PS2 port on your laptop. That is what I prefer, because the funky integrated dual-key deal interferes with all the touch-typing I learned 37 years ago.
