Question about Compaq Keyboard

Open Question

Shift lock Sometimes my V5000Z Compaq Presario NB begins to type in uppercase - letters are uppercase, number keys produce the sympols above them. Sticky keys are not turned on. Caps lock and scroll lock are not on. Sometimes the issue resolves itself after a while, sometimes I have to restart the computer. I'm not aware that I've toggled anything when the problem suddenly starts.

Hi,
If the problem is intermittent then the problem could just be foreign objects like crumbs and hair that's trapped under the keys.

Turn the laptop off and stand it on it's side with the lid open. Get a soft, dry paintbrush and brush the keys, gently tap the keyboard in various places with the back of the paintbrush to help dislodge anything that's trapped.

Once your satisfied all the keys are clear turn the laptop on and see if it has made any difference.

If it has not then you may need to replace the keyboard.

Good luck.

Want to make german Umlaut symbols on keyboard


Every so often you may find you need to type a character on your computer that is either foreign or just not available on a standard keyboard.
The German umlaut is once such symbol.
Used in the German language to indicate a change in sound, the umlaut can sometimes be found in names and words we use in the United States as well.
The literary Bronte sisters, for example, use an umlaut over the E in their last name.
Umlaut's can be found over the vowels A, E, I, O, U and Y in both lowercase and uppercase forms

Hold down the alt key on your PC.
The next step depends on the vowel and case you want for your umlaut.
If you want a lowercase A with an umlaut, type the numbers 0228 on the keypad while holding down the alt key.
If you want an uppercase A with an umlaut, hold down the alt key and type 0196.
Hold down the alt key and type 0235 for a lowercase E with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0203 for an uppercase E with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0239 for a lowercase I with an umlaut. Hold down alt and type 0207 for an uppercase I with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0246 for a lowercase O with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0214 for an uppercase O with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0252 for a lowercase U with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0220 for an uppercase U with an umlaut.


Hold down the alt key and type 0255 for a lowercase Y with an umlaut.
Hold down alt and type 0159 for an uppercase Y with an umlaut.

Typing an Umlaut on a Mac


Hold down the option key on a Mac computer and press the letter u.
Then release both keys and type the letter for which you want the umlaut.
For example, if you want a lowercase A with an umlaut, you would hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter a.
If you want an uppercase A, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter A.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter e for an umlaut over a lowercase E.
If you want an uppercase E, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter E.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter i for an umlaut over a lowercase I.
If you want an uppercase I, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter I.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter o for an umlaut over a lowercase O.
If you want an uppercase O, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter O.


Hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter u for an umlaut over a lowercase U.
If you want an uppercase U, you would hold down option and the u key, release and then type the letter U. And for an umlaut over an uppercase Y, hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter Y.
For a lowercase Y, hold down option and u, release, and then type the letter y.

Above my scroll/# lock the lightbar is lit,and some letters produce #... i = 5 etc


Sounds like yo have the scroll lock or num lock turned on. If the scroll key is a colored key (the scroll lk lettering is blue) then you will have to Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the scroll key to turn it off. When it is turned on if you press the letter i you get the number 5. If you press the letter O you get the number 6.

Notice that the numbers on the keys that have letters are a different color than the letters (blue most times). That means you have to Press and Hold the blue FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key with the same color if you want the colored representation to happen.

Some laptops will use a Square Box instead of the blue colors on the keys. In that case you have to press and hold the key a the lower left portion of the keyboard that has the square box, then hit the key you want.

How to change the uppercase and lowercase letters


Either by pressing and holding the shift key (on left and right of keyboard, looks like up arrow) while typing, or by pressing the CAPS LOCK key to put capitals on or off. The caps lock key is usually one above the left shift key.
If you cant find them just advise your make and model of computer and I could tell you exactly where the keys are.

Keyboard will not work


Try this and see if this works for you. Touch Keypad simulates a wireless phone keypad on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols just as if you were using a wireless phone keypad. Touch Keyboard simulates a 20-key QWERTY (typewriter) keyboard on the touch screen to allow you to enter text, numbers, and symbols similar to the way you would using a QWERTY keyboard. To use Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard:  In a program, tap the Input Selector arrow, and then tap Touch Keypad or Touch Keyboard. To type lowercase letters, tap the keys on the dial pad or keyboard. To type a single uppercase letter, tap the Shift key and then tap the corresponding key. To type all uppercase letters, tap the Shift key twice. To change back to all lowercase letters, tap again. To enter a space after the word, tap the Space key. To start a new line, tap the Enter key. To backspace and delete a single character in any input mode, press the Back key. To open the Symbol pad, tap the Symbol key. To change the input mode:  Tap the Input mode key to switch to a different input mode: XT9 (predictive), Multitap (abc), or Numeric (123).
Let me know if this works for you, if not let me know.

Compaq Presario C700 numbers showing up instead of letters


Either address your "Num Lock" Key keyboard or your "Fn" Key on your keyboard. Either of these, or a combination of both should solve the issue.

Please let us know if you need anything else.
