So when you have a problem and go to look for the answer on the internet I still don’t know if it is better to not find anything or find a whole bunch of people who have the same problem and don’t know how to fix it. After reading through several forums this is what I came up with.
Take out the battery and the keyboard will work again.
I’m not kidding that is the best solution, and now suddenly my keyboard that has been given me fits for days is working again. It is the strangest thing. Of course the battery was totally dead anyway (which is apparently also a problem for these computers) so it isn’t that big of a deal to my computer lifestyle. Of course you would think that a computer costs as much as this one did just a little over a year ago wouldn’t have these problems, but well, at least it is fixed right now.
Just so you know, I have a HP Pavilion zd8000 series computer. I would suggest going a different direction if you are presently in the computer market. What I hate is the fact that I can go to Wal-Mart right now and buy a better computer than this one for nearly $1500 less.
