  1. This is the most thorough site I’ve found on this tablet but my problems are with it’s k6b54aa#aba keyboard. They “die” after about two months and numerous users are requesting help with this problem but HP offers absolute zero support for the keyboard. I have the latest BIOS installed, have tried the complete battery rundown and CMOS bleed-out, and have uninstalled the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery driver from the Device Manager but it reappears when I reboot. I have replaced the k6b54aa#aba keyboard twice but refuse to keep buying a new one every two to three months. I don’t mind paying a competent tech to solve this problem (I’m in a very rural area with no nearby tech). Thanks in advance.
