Windows 7: hp laptop keyboard

21 Feb 2010   #1

hp laptop keyboard

I have an HP Pavillion dv9000z (the 17 inch monster) and i just installed windows 7 and it works fine, but there is a small problem, the keyboard thinks its on the 15 inch model. when i turn on num lock, the num pad works, but then p becomes *, j becomes 1, etc. any way to fix this

Note: looked it up on the hp website, doing anything with the numlock/fn keys didn't seem to work

That is strange indeed. Even with a seperate num pad, there seems to be a num lock. I have the same on a 15" Gateway that has a seperate num pad PLUS a num lock. In my opinion it only makes sense if there is no seperate num pad. But who knows what they had in mind.
