    The dv9000 has a separate number pad, the bios that i flashed to whitelist wlan cards corrupted the DMI table (bios works well, error on my part?). Now when numlock is on letters on the keyboard turn to numbers, as if it was a smaller dv6000 without the separate keypad.

    [Numlock on]
    123456789
    qwerty456*
    asdfgh123
    zxcvbn0,.

    [Numlock off]
    1234567890
    qwertyuiop
    asdfghjkl
    zxcvbnm,.

    All the serial numbers, and product information in bios are gone. I found dmi information from other systems:

    I've read about the tattoo utility but i cannot find one for the dv9000. The phlash options doesn't seem to allow Chassis Information > OEM Information to be modified, this is what is making me think that the tattoo utility is the only fix. Can anyone help?

    Thanks
