Hello Experts,

I have an HP Pavilion dv2000 Laptop...
I recently did a fresh installation base on the system recovery that come on this laptop,
then i noticed that some keys on the keyboard were not right! not all of them but few are
not ok. i seen this problem before on dell laptops and to get arround this problem i remember
doing it with the [ FN ] butom combine with [ Shift ] and [ Ctrl ] etc. and everything works just
fine, but thats not the case with this keyboard.

I even change the keyboard thinking that could be the problem, but did not work. :-(
I'll explain in details what are the keys that actually produce this wird effect.

Whe i type or press the following keys i get this
If i press U i get this: 4 ...for example:
U=4, I=5, O=6, P=*, J=1, K=2, L=3, M=0

any help will be very appreciate, thanks.

There should be a numlock key on your laptop, most are activated by pressing FN + Numlock, however others can be triggered by other midifiers like alt or ctrl. Point is you have Numlock on.

If all else fails plug in a USB keyboard and turn numlock off using that.
