    once i removed the panel from above the keyboard i could see the screws that held the keyboard in place once i removed these screws i could see the two screws holding the laptop together. once i did this the laptop came apart allowing me to clean the dust around the fan and rest of the computer. after i put it all back together tha laptop is running a lot cooler now. anybody that knows anything about computers can do this task it is not a professional job. it would help if you answered the questions people are asking you. my advice to you would be ask them what they are trying to do and how much they know about computers before you fob them off.



    thankyou Lee

I could not find a driver for presario 2100 a compaq branch.


Which driver are you looking for? Which laptop version do you have? I notice that the HP site has several different 2100 models.

You can try this site:

I have a compaq Presario C500 laptop and I need to replace the keyboard. Do you have any ideas on how to do this?


Hello,
The first thing you should do (if you are willing to take your laptop apart) is hunt for a good deal on a replacement keyboard. I was able to find one for ~17$ USD by using Google's shopping search:

http://www.google.com/products?q=compaq+C500+replacement+keyboard&oe=UTF-8&scoring=p

After you receive the keyboard, you could attempt to replace the old yourself using instructions found on the internet, but I was unable to find them. If and when I need to replace my keyboard, I would begin removing screws and try to figure out how to remove the keyboard while being as gentle as possible. Once you get your laptop taken apart, (I have opened a few up previously) the keyboard is usually connected to the motherboard by way of a thin ribbon-like connection which can be unclipped and slipped out of the connectors. The keyboard can then be swapped out with a new one.

I wish I could find some instructions for you, Compaq's site used to be so informative, but now I can't even get disassembly instructions. If you don't feel comfortable with ripping your laptop apart, you could try FixYa's repair directory to find a fair price for a repair:

You could skip all this and contact Compaq about replacing the keyboard, but that seems like an expensive solution to me.

Wont start up


my wife has a presario that had a similar problem - it would boot up, then immediately shut down. I took off the side plate and blew off some of the dust inside. that worked for a couple of days then the symptoms returned. I took it apart again but this time I removed the cpu fan and the cpu heat sink. I cleaned all the **** off the fan and the heat sink and replaced it. this time it stayed on. I checked out the power supply. compaq installed a very cheap power supply - only 250 watts. a replacement power supply for the same machine but with an output of 300 watts is available. as soon as I can scrape up the change, I'm gonna change the PS

Computer restarts and nothing found in event viewer.


It sounds to me its over heating and shutting down, If you take apart the case and clean the dust out of the heat sink you should be fine, Give that a try, if it don't work just write back here and I'll see if there is something else we can look into.Thanks for trying my solution and hope it works, I am sure it will.
