Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv5020us Notebook ?

I have a hp pavilion dv5020 laptop. All of a sudden when I type j it types 1, k it types 2 etc. The scroll and num lock light is on and when I push it the scroll lock comes on or goes off. How do I turn off the num lock?


Answers :

Press the blue key marked Fn (should be bottom left, I believe) and hold it down. Then press the key that has blue writing that says 'NumLk' (or something similar to that). Should turn it off.
Most likely you have a short on the keyboard, or you have a fried keyboard interface.

You can remove the keyboard quite easily. Just pop the thin cover that site between the keyboard and the screen, then you can unlatch the flat ribbon connector. Don't just pull on it. There is a latch to release the cable. You should be able to find a replacement keyboard for under $20 on Ebay.

But if the keyboard interface is the problem, you will have to replace the motherboard, which is a lot harder to do.

I am working on an HP Pavillion a1220n Desktop and I am getting different bootups each time. First we had a visual (video), but when we enter bios, the computer would not freze up, but simply just reboot itsself, and it would reboot everytime by itsself, no matter where you were at from 15-20 seconds after booting up.
