Ok, folks, here is the solution: Open up the keyboard using the directions already posted somewhere (remove back screws, then remove button cover plate, remove screws holding keyboard in place). Pull the keyboard out and reseat the keyboard connector at the interface (this is the thin rectangular flexible connector the keyboard is attached to). You MUST remove and reseat the connector firmly for this to work. It's easy to remove, it has a couple of pressure tabs to squeeze on when removing, if my memory serves me correctly. Put it all back together and bingo, problem solved. BUT this is the third time I've had to open up the computer to fix a problem, therefore will never buy another HP laptop again. Sorry to all those folks who had to pay or struggle with retail stores, etc. Pass it on!!!

If the keys are not responsive, then you will need to replace the laptop. Your laptop manufacturer should be able to sell you a replacement part as well as instructions on replacing it. In the mean time, you can plug in a regular keyboard to the laptop to get full keyboard functionality.

Compaq and Hp are having issues with several models, My wife just got hers repaired free out of warranty. Go to copaqs website, look up your model and see if it is one they are offering free one time repairs on. Wife's computer was doing same thing, they replaced the motherboard. Took about 2 weeks round trip . Good luck

Sorry but you found what is NORMAL for laptops. this is not a bug, error, fault, etc.
It does exactly what it is supposed to do even though it may have a proper number pad too. leave num lock off

I have the same problem. Click the Windows start button. At the bottom is a Windows Serach box. Type 'keyboard'. A virtual keyboard appears. Click the NumLock key on the Virtual Keyboard. This should override the issue you are having and your keyboard and keys should now work. Otherwise reboot!
