HP/Compaq :: DV6130US- Some Keys Not Working And Brightness
My laptop has gotten into deep trouble..

Since the last few days, some of the keys have stopped working .. These are mainly the z,x,c,v,b,n,m,space-bar,delete,f8 keys.

Accidentally I minimized the brightness level to lowest level using the fn+f7 key.. and now i cannot bring it up using the fn+f8 key.

I heard that this could be problem due to some malware. However, i ran spybot and antivirus checks and nothing seems to have worked so far. Also, these keys do not even work at the boot time before any OS is loaded. So should i assume that this is a hardware problem?

Currently i am alteast looking for a solution to atleast restore the brightness level.. because its really strainful to look at the dim monitor.. Isn't there any alternative to the fn+f8 key combination?

My laptop - HP Pavilion DV6130US.. Windows Xp. about 2.5 years old.

Sony :: Vaio G11 Brightness Keys Not Working In XP
This is almost a classic problem. I just installed XP SP3 on a Vaio G11. I did everything according to Sony's plan. But the brightness keys don't work.

Is there a chance that Sony's drivers were written for XP SP2, and that SP3 is the cause of my problems?

Reason I'm thinking this is that SP3 recognized some devices that SP2 doesn't recognize

Acer :: 1810T: Arrow Keys Not Working
I've noticed our new 1810T's arrow and PageUp/PageDown keys often don't respond to presses, specifically when pressed higher on the key (along the upper border as someone says in one of the 1810T owner threads). This ends up happening quite a lot the way I situate my hands over the keyboard and the touchpad, and is a serious issue for me since I'm using these keys a lot in the development environment I use. As referenced above I've seen a few mentions of this issue on the forum, but no clear confirmation whether it is normal for the 1810T. Can anyone with a 1810T out there verify whether their unit exhibits this issue?

Sony :: Fn Keys Not Working After Windows 7 Install
i upgraded my hard drive and installed windows 7 this weekend. Everything is working fine except for my fn keys will not work.

I have looked high and low through the forums to try to find a fix. I have been installing Sony drivers for the past 3 hours, rebooting between each installation, and it still isn't working perfectly.

I've gotten to a point where the Volume keys work, and when I push Fn+F5 to lower the brightness, the little brightness meter pops up and the sound is made. But, the brightness won't go any lower than maximum.

The screen is really bright and it's killing my eyes, and draining my battery crazy fast!

Acer :: Aspire 5920 Left Keys Not Working
I have had this laptop for only a year and the other day when plugging in my power while the laptop was on, left keys on the keyboard stopped working. A friend suggested I take the battery out for a bit and then plug it in without the battery. So I did and the keyboard worked for a couple of days like that. Then one day it stopped working again.

To be exact these are the keys that are not working:
Esc, F1, F2, F3,
~, 1, 2, 3,
Tab, Q, W, E,
Caps Lock, A, S, D,
Shift, Z, X, C,
Ctrl, Fn, windows, Alt

Sony :: Volume And Multimedia Keys Are Not Working CS Windows 7
I just could not get multimedia keys and volume keys to work (the ones above the F keys, next to the power button)

I have just upgraded my VGN-CS11S/Q to Windows 7 - 64 Bit. I have updated the FEPD driver via windows update, and installed the utilities in following order:

Sony Shared Library
Vaio Event Service
Setting Utility Series

but no luck. Than, I have reformatted the system (actually, I have restored the image file, but is was a clean installation without any utils / drivers anyway) and installed the utilities in another order as follows:

Vaio Event Service
Sony Shared Library
Setting Utilitiy Series

still no luck. FN keys does work, and little OSD screen comes up as well when I use FN + volume up - volume down keys. But multimedia keys and volume keys (which is the one with lights) insisting on not working.

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15- Keyboard F-Keys
i got an Envy 15 last week and i LOVE it! however i have a problem, the function keys along the top have some 'issues'

if i hold the 'fn' key and press them they work as F1 F2 etc as expected but some of them dont work as they should when pressed on their own!

The brightness, media, and screen selection keys work fine but the F1 key doesnt bring up help as it should and the f12 key doesnt lock the system! This is annoying as i use my laptop at work and lock it whenever i go away from my desk so pressing 1 key to lock would be very useful! The strange thing is, it worked fine yesterday but isnt working today!

HP/Compaq :: How To Remap/disable AnnoyingEnvy Special Function Keys
solution to remapping the annoying Envy special function keys


I bought an envy about a month ago and have been working through the usual new laptop quirks. There are plenty of hard-to-notice-until-bought pros and cons that I might pour over some time, but right now I'd just like to mention my findings with respect to the Envy Quick Launch keys that are located on the left of the keyboard.

By default, these keys open up a mail program, HP's MediaSmart SmartMenu, a web browser, printing, and the Windows calculator program. You can see them on the left side of the keyboard, with labels I'll explain in a moment:

There's no way in the HP software to customize the buttons, so I did a little bit of fishing around and found some useful information.

My original intent was to make a small program that would sit in the system tray and simply have a menu to disable all the buttons at will or re-enable them. The buttons are nice, but they aren't the most useful thing to have enabled when one is trying to play a full-screen game. I'd keep getting sent back to the desktop because I accidentally opened a calculator instead of pressing ctrl............

HP/Compaq :: "Slippery" Keys On The Dv5t
I recently received a dv5t. I ordered the bronze finish. The keyboard keys are bronze-colored, too. I dislike how they feel very slippery, like my fingers are about to slide off. Is this just a matter of the color... would other colors of keys have a more secure feel to them? Is it possible to order a set of replacement keys?

Acer :: Timeline Keyboard NOT Working In BIOS, Working In The OS
I have a timeline 4810T which has worked lovely since September, but now I have a weird problem with it: The keyboard won't work until the operating system is loaded. I can't access the bios (press the F2 key but nothing happens), neither select my OS on the Grub menu as the arrow keys doesn't work, all I can do is wait for the 10 seconds timer, then Ubuntu launches, then I can login without problems and all the keys work perfectly.

To give more details, maybe some keys do actually work before the os boot, because when I'm on the grub menu, some keys manage to stop the timer, but unfortunately I can't change the OS or accept the selection, then I have to reboot and wait for the timer to go back to 0 for itself and ubuntu loads.

I'm running the newest BIOS, updated some days ago but didn't had the problem since today.

HP/Compaq :: Blu-ray Not Working
I just got my custom dv7t quad in the mail 2 days ago, i opted not to pay hp 350 for the bluray drive and ordered a refurbished model from ebay. I installed the drive last night and went to try it out today and no bluray disk will play. Dvd's will play just fine and windows detects the bluray movie but when i use hp mediasmart dvd software it tells me that the format is not supported, ive tried vlc, and the cyberlink dvd that also comes with hp and nothing is working. Windows media player tells me the format is not supported. I also downloaded k-lite codecs. The drive i bought is model optiarc bc-5500s it came from a dv7 model hp laptop. Im a little lost here, not sure what you guys will suggest, ive spent countless hours with hp support and they seem like they are not to sure what to do. one guy took control over my laptop and tried to install older bios firmware?

HP/Compaq :: Working With An Older Computer
about an older HP Compaq computer I'm running here.

It's a desktop for starters, a Compaq Presario SR1810NX. I've been using it for about two years now, and have run through all of the most current updates (to my knowledge). The only problem is, until tax refunds come back (blah,blah), I won't have a new laptop to game on.

So my question is this, two years ago after I first purchased it, I could run (most) games on their highest setting while still running more than decent FPS. I'm looking at it now, and it can barely sustain anything anymore. What used to be max settings and 60 fps is World of Warcraft is now only lowest settings with a meek 12 fps. Is there anything that could cause this? I've upgraded the ram to 1G, as this is a shared family computer, and putting more money into a pre-built computer isn't my idea of fun. Is it just the two years of wear and tear that have brought it to this condition? Currently, what am I looking at to solve the problem? I can edit the post if my DXdiag is needed.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000 Speakers Not Working
The speakers on my laptop are not working. The weird thing is the sound works when I plug in my headphones in either headphone jack (so that's good news, I suppose). But when I unplug the headphones, no sound.

Here's the thing; you know those media buttons that make that little beep whenever you touch any of them? Well, they work fine (volume up and down, mute, DVD and QuickPlay), but no beep sound from them either!

HP/Compaq :: Wireless Not Working When Plugged In
sometimes when i plug in, the wireless disables itself. hp wireless helper app tells me that it is disabled using the button... but the button is on. and then immediately when i unplug the laptop and run on battery, the wireless turns on and connects, and the wireless light on the switch is blue.

i tried disabling and enabling the wireless network adapter, it didnt work. i tried turning the switch on/off manually while plugged in, it doesnt work.

also, i noticed that the LED for the "power on" near the wireless switch (next to "charging" light and "HDD access" light is very dim or off, while the laptop is on. I think it might be related.

out of warranty

no wireless, hard time starting up, sound crashes, system freezes when updating things(can only use for 30min before it crashes), can only start it when it's cooled off, usually just restarts itself when the hd light doesn't come on(you know[power][charging][reading hd])

The no wireless and sound crashes were my first problems, then the system melted down. I bought it used off craigslist Christmas 2008 and any warranty time was long gone when it crashed Halloween 2009.

HP/Compaq :: Pavillion Dv6780se Not Working After Restore
Last week my computer just stopped working. Just wouldn't boot up all the way, not sure if it got a virus or what...but it sucked.

When it first happened I tried to run the system restore from the restore partition, it got to 87% and failed, on 4 tries. After that I decided to make a set of restore disks from my wifes computer to try that (same exact computer). After 4 tries with that, 3 times error after disk 5, 1 error after last disk...I ordered the official restore disks from HP.

I did the above process on the original hard drive, and then went out and bought a new one...same results with the home made disks on that.

Now, with the restore disks on my new hard drive, it gets through both disk, finishes the restore and then start installing all the damn bloatware that comes with HP...sometime during this process after one of the restarts the computer loads a black screen that says Operating System not found...

any ideas what could be wrong? I did a disk diagnostic from BIOS and it all checks out. But since my warranty is passed HP won't help with troubleshooting so I'm not sure where to go from here.

I'd love to take it to geeksquad at the moment, but sadly buying that new hard drive was all the spare money I can muster up at the moment.
