Question about Compaq Presario R3240US Notebook

1 Answer

Unresponsive key board

Everything works fine apart from the keyboard. None of the keystrokes work unless you tap the keyboard wildly. Then all of a sudden the keys will work briefly before displaying the same character constantly. The only way to stop it is to tap wildly again. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: unresponsive key board

Most notebooks have touch sensitive pads or switches underneath the keyboard, unlike a normal keyboard which is less complicated. You can try and remove keyboard and check underneath, but it may be that the circuitry that works certain banks of keys is damaged or shorting. Not a job for faint hearted i would recommend a qualified repairer.

Keying numbers instead of letters whun num lock on

Check 2nd Function keys. The problem you describe is normally a Fn +numlock keystroke on most systems

Keyboard stuck on fn

I found this on another site, and it worked on my Vostro 1510:

Try pressing shift + numlock (Scrolllock in blue) to toggle the Fn feature.

Normal numlock comes on, so press it again by itself to turn that off.

Arrow key problem

if its a sensor problem under the keyboard, gently blowing under the key or hoovering the keyboard may bring results, but it may just be the driver, so go to my comuter icon, right click, properties, the hardware tab, device manager and go down the list to keyboard, click the '+' sign to reveal your keyboard make, right click on it and select uninstal. Restart the notebook and the keyboard will be recognised again and the driver automatically installed. If none of that works your problem may be more serious in the way of a faulty circuit under the board
