Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard
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?
SOURCE: keyboard does not work
I have got the same problem on my presario v4000. when press f9-f12. few keys work. other then when I release it, nothing seems to work. any idea. changed keyboard and cmos too. but no luck. update bios but still no luck.

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.

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
