Having problems with your HP G60-235DX Notebook ?

I ordered a replacement keyboard - I was able to remove the old key board and install the new one. Although, the keyboard is not working. I can only assume I would have not done something properly with the strip and reattaching. I would like some instructions or pics on this procedure.


Answers :

Its quite simple, the keyboard connector has two clips on the sides that hold in the flex cable.

either you have a faulty keyboard, wrong model that doesn't work with your laptop, its not properly connected or the mainboard of the laptop is fried.

I have a Acer Laptop here, the keyboard does not work at all, its a motherboard issue, I've tried 2 keyboards on it.

so if you have the right model of keyboard and its properly connected (its simple and theres noting else to it, just one flex cable and 2 clips on the sides)
Theres a chance that the old keyboard was never faulty, it could be the motherboard instead, considering the price of a new laptop, mainboard replacement out of warranty is hardly worth it.

Can anyone tell me why a keyboard on the CQ50 would stop working after opening the case? I replaced the display in my CQ50, something I have done several times before with other laptops. When i reassembled, the keyboard no longer functioned. The touch pad is fine and I can use an external USB keyboard. I bought a brand new replacement keyboard and that doesn't work either. Could something have happened to the system board to make the keyboard stop working?

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
