Compaq presario v4000 keyboard not working

Hi there
I have got compaq presario v4000. my keyboard is not working. I tried to replace the keyboard from another v4000 but same result. the keyboard connector looks fine. I think it is keyboard controller chip which is bad, but I can not locate it on the motherboard. it might be max1907 or max1999. can someone confirm the CHIP PLZ? and also the location?
regards

Its possible it is broken. You may want to check your BIOS make sure there isn't some crazy setting that disables the keyboard.

And other that depending on how ambitious you are you could open it up and unplug the keyboard from the laptop and put it back in, but I would only do that as a last ditch effort, or if you are prepared to buy a new keyboard anyway.

Compaq Presario V4000 laptop lower volume button (just to the right of the power on/off button) stays depressed. The button is concave now instead of convex. What to do?


Does the machine have regular keys (that remove) or a "blister switch" type key pad? Have you tried to use compressed air to remove any obstruction? OR try to pry the key, very gently, up? A LITTLE silicon spray? You may have to remove the keyboard. If you use the Tray Notification Area Sound Icon to increase volume what happens?

Hi,

Its not compatible. It has different screw listings then V4000.
If you could provide me the product No. which is at the bottom sticker of the notebook of your Compaq v4000 laptop then I can find the part no. for LCD screen which is less costlier and exchangeable.

My cursor keeps moving to the left making typing almost immposible sometimes it works fine ??!


Either the "left-arrow" or the "backspace" keys on your keyboard is getting stuck in the "down" position.

Take the computer to a qualified technician, and get the keyboard replaced.

You do not need to dismantle to base, you have some star screws under the battary and one either side that loosens the small panel near the screen (where the power button is). The screen cover has screws under the plastic covers then just unclips, be gentle. after that it is self evident

Presario v4000 is dead


For unknown reasons, only the computer gods know what happened. You need a new system board for your laptop. You can buy one and fix yourself or have a computer shop replace it. Your probably better off buying one off the internet and take it somewhere to have them replace it.

 I found a brand spankin new one for you on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Compaq-Presario-V4000-915GM-System-Board-383463-001_W0QQitemZ170158400649QQcmdZViewItem
