Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

1 Answer

The popular keyboard problem in another form

The popular HP Pavilion zd8000 happens to be my laptop.
At startup, the computer will give a continous noise until a button is pressed on it especially the escape button. After some time I discover that the X key is the one being held down and the very X key will not work when typing. What can I do to solve this, although there are still some other problem on my computer but I don't think they can cause this.

Take the key off and check the depressor. Be gentle and try to remove only the key and leaving the retainer. If the depressor has moved or is stuck in a depressed position, this will cause your problem. If the depressor is good, then I'm afraid your keyboard has malfunctioned and will need replaced.

Keyboard overheating


This is a charactoristic problem with many brands of laptops. How long has it been since you changed the battery? Overcharging the battery is what causes the heat to seemingly heat up the keyboard.

HP Pavilion zd8000 keyboard skips characters


The most common reason that your cursor skips around is that you are touching the touch pad when typing. Some are more sensitive than others. On my Toshiba I had that problem, but it has a Fn key that allows me to turn off the touchpad. Problem went away when I went to a mouse instead.
Had a client with a Dell with the same problem. I had to actually physically disconnect the touchpad and her problem went away.
Now as for the first problem, (the HP), I'd say you have a stuck key on the keyboard. It would make that noise.

No, its easy to do it yourself. You should not have too much of an issue. I would stick to a factory keyboard to avoid any incompatibility issues.
