Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

1 Answer

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.

    Unlock numeric key pad on lap top

    your laptop should have a blue FN key (Function) that will work in conjunction with other blue keys on teh keyboard. most laptops this is located in the lower left, next to the ctrl key. Look to the right top on your keyboard for a one labeled numlk. hold down teh left FN key and tap the right num lk key and you just turned off the numbers lock.

    There is another option that is a little more intense - if interested let me know that laptop type you have.

    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.

    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.
