HP/Compaq :: Hp Pavilion Keyboard- Quite A Few Of The Keys Arent Working
Jan 31, 2009
i've recently just repaired the jack connector for my hp pavilion dv6000. I put it all together today and my keyboards playing up. Quite a few of the keys arent working. I've checked the connection for the keyboard and its pushed in as far as possible.
Ever since I upgraded to Windows 7 Pro on my HP Pavilion (dv7-1223ca) , several keys on my keyboard haven't been working properly. I've upgraded and downgraded my computer many times, and this hasn't happened before. When I press the G, H, backspace, or apostrophe keys, they won't work unless I press one of them around thirty or forty times. Once I get one of them working, they all start to work properly for about five minutes, and then it goes back to being broken.
This is a major hassle as I use my laptop for work. I've tried reinstalling the keyboard drivers, but this hasn't worked
Also, two of the keys on my keyboard (alt and delete) came off completely and won't go back on. Is there any chance HP would be able to replace these?
I just got my Z50 2 days ago and I've noticed after typing a bit that some keys arent picked up if they are pressed in the corners. The key does down all the way but is not registered.It does not happen on every key, but 'F', 'T', 'H', 'V', 'B', 'M' and 'O' are really easy to reproduce for me.Is this a bad keyboard I received or just the normal quality of Lenovo?
I recently purchased an HP 250 G2 laptop with no operating system (freedos) After Installing windows 7 home premium x64 I went to the HP support web page and downloaded all drivers, installed them and everything seems to work without problems.
The only problem is that the HP support page does not have any drivers for the keyboard and the outcome is that all the FN keys are non functional.
In device manager the keyboard is shown normally because windows 7 automatically installs drivers but these are not 100% compatible so that FN keys would be working.
it is very important to be able to use fn keys so that I can change brightness, sound level, and tun on/ off wifi.
A few days ago I removed two keys from my keyboard (backspace and enter) because some liquid fell onto it. Fortunately I cleaned it and nothing happened until I tried to put the keys back: I really couldn't make them fit correctly. I already tried to look for tutorials for this specific model of keys (including the website laptopkey), but couldn't find any.
It looks like to me that the "backspace" might be damaged but the "enter" looks totally ok. But I'm really not sure.
I have a HP K2500 Wireless Keyboard which purchased arond 3 months ago and for some reasons now I can't use the keys y,h,n,m,j,u,5,6. i changed the batteries several times and I tried to test it other computer and laptops and it is still not working.
I have an HP Pavilion dv7 -4053 and noticed this week when entering data into a works database that my right arrow and down arrow no longer respond, up and left work fine. checked drivers etc. Tab had not been responding but is now working.
The numbers 1-4 on my Y580 keyboard don't work anymore. I only realized this recently as I had been using a separate USB keyboard for some time. I've tried all sorts of things - uninstalling and uninstalling the keyboard drivers in Device Manager, reinstalling the BIOS, unchecking all the boxes under the accessbility options, scanned the computer for malware...but nothing seems to work.
I've also installed Windows 8.1 and replaced my HDD with an SSD...
My Dell Inspiron N5010 keyboard is not working properly. The keys from numpad not working. And sometimes left arrow too. If I press some key of them is appearing random letters or numbers. Sometimes they change my volume, brightness, and touchpad /enable-disable./ My OS is Windows 7. I have tried Ubuntu 12.04, but and there is similarly.
Knocked half a glass of water over keyboard yesterday. Turned off & wiped away straightaway. No problem re-booting etc but now some kets along top 2 rows not working.After a day - do you think there's any chance these will spring back into life?Do Lenovo supply any on-site repair options (at a cost obviously).....can't spare time at moment to send away - even for a couple of days.
I just removed the LED dashboard cover and then the keyboard in a LATITUDE E4300 and used some compressed air for a simple spring cleaning. after I carefully put everything back together, the following keys stopped working 9 O L .
I repeated the process a couple of times to make sure I didn't make any mistake, but still those keys don't work.
Ive had this Acer laptop E1-510p with window 8.1 and all of the sudden some of the keys accross the keyboard stop working. These keys are random and even when i plug in a generic keyboard it does the same thing ....
I purchased HP Pavilion 15-n209TX Laptop this year and the functions keys were working properly. But, later on from 10th of May 2014, they are not working! I checked whether there was a software due to which it was happening, but, I didn't install any kind of software which can harm the functioning of the keys. I am really struggling with very low brightness. The latest thing I did was - windows update - which installed the following softwares
Also, I installed HP Quick fix.
Whenever I press F2 or F3, it just shows the slidebar (it doesn't go up and down though) and when I click on the top of the slidebar, nothing happens again. I also tried to go to the brightness option in the Windows Mobility Centre and tried to adjust the brightness - but nothing is happening.
The function keys on my keyboards are working in the opposite manner. Whenever I press any of the keys from F1 to F12 they perform the multimedia actions or their enhanced action. For example, if I press the F2 key the brightness of my laptop screen would lower. It should not work like this. I should be pressing Fn+F2 for the brightness of my screen to lower. The problem here is that I can't use Alt+F4 to close windows because its reversed, I instead have to press Alf+Fn+F4.
I have already search for an answer online and I can only find that NumLock is supposed to be locked. But, it's a laptop - I have no such key.
I have had the HP Pavilion g6t-1b00 CTO Notebook PC for a year or two now. I've been having a couple of problems with internet connectivity and putting my computer on "sleep".
However, few days ago, my keyboard randomly started acting weirdly. When I would try to type certain letter/numbers, they would come out differently.
Ex. pressing the space bar would show up " ./M" instead
I tried restarting my computer many times and installed a BiOS update which fixed all of my issues except for my up and down arrow keys. As of now, they have no function; I can't scroll with them and they don't seem to be taking on the role of another key. I have tried using the keys on different programs. Using the touch pad to scroll works but I still can't use the up and down keys.
Is there anyway to get the up and down arrow keys to work again?
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!
My Hp Laptop has gone through a serious problem. Its Spacebar,Enter,Delete,up and down Arrow keys have stopped working . I am not sure how this problem caused . So i gone through varios fixes, that were -
1. Rstoring to an earliar date. 2. Re-installling Keyboard driver 3. Formating the System.
The third fix Formatting worked and my keys started working . After some day I installed a software HP Network Manager but this after installing it again those keys stopped working and also the LED lights on Caps Lock and Wi- fi are not turning on but these two are functioning normally. the some of the information related my HP laptop are-
Model: Pavilion G6 ram 4 gb. OS: Windows 7 Home Basic
I am having a problem with my keyboard on my dell studio 1737. When you press certain keys on the keyboard the adjacent keys are activated as well as the key itself. I've tried various techniques I've read about to correct the problem such as removing power from the laptop for an extended period of time and installing new bios drivers but nothing seems to work. From the information I can gather this is a common problem with this model of Dell laptop. What is the best way to correct this problem. Will replacing the keyboard correct this problem or is there some other problem causing the malfunction?
I have a HP Pavilion g7-2325sb running Windows 7 64 bit. but the buttons for adjusting screen brightness don't work.The buttons for audio adjustment do work without pusshing the fn button.In bios "action keys mode" is enabled.I think it's some software missing but can't find the software, neither can "HP support assistant".
recently ive been having this keyboard issue for like a week now. before this i dont think ive had this problem since i bought my laptop last year. when i press numlock some of my keyboard keys change values. ill try to type a smple with numlock engaged:
the q45c2 br6wn f6x 140*ed 6ver the 3azy d6g
numlock unengaged the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog
I recently formatted my laptop to windows 7 ultimate and since then can not get my function keys to work. I've reinstalled drivers that I thought might work and nothing.
When I could no longer adjust my brightness is when I noticed that my function keys were not working. Is there any other way to adjust the brightness on my laptop besides the function keys? If so I have not figured it out.
