Well, your best bet would be to tighten the screws in the hinges of the laptop screen. You can usually do this by removing the keyboard which will expose the screws. I hope that you find this helpful.

If a key on a laptop keyboard stops working it's usually bad news for the keyboard as it may well need to be replaced. Test the 'feel' of the button. Does it feel different compared to other buttons when you press it? I.e. does it feel loose, stiff, wobbly or like it sticks? Stiff or sticky could mean there is something stuck under the button, loose or wobbly could mean it is mechanically broken. Sometimes turning your laptop on it's side and tapping it firmly, not hard, can release it if there is a mechanical fault. Unfortunately however I think the fault is most likely to be an unrepairable one. You could always plug in an external USB keyboard to check if it the G key responds just to rule out an operating system fault but it is unlikely to be that. If the G button works when using the external keyboard you can be sure it is your laptop keyboard that is broken.
Replacement keyboards cost around $30 (eBay). There's a good guide on youtube showing how to remove the keyboard.

Good Luck

When I turn on the power of the laptop starts, the LEDs work properly but noting appears on the screen. All the LED light blink, charging light also show. But the screen is totally blank.

I cannot promise an easy fix for this and you will need to work through the following to eliminate possible causes.

1.) Try the laptop on another monitor, if it works on this, you can eliminate the graphics chip, which is the part that usually causes problems with blank screens. If the external monitor does not work with the laptop, you will need to investigate the problem by stripping the laptop.

2.) If it does work on an external screen, the inverter, the backlight or the VGA cable are at fault. If you can see a very faint image on screen in a darkened room, the possibility is that the backlight has failed, if there is no image, the inverter has failed. Of the two, the inverter is the cheapest to replace at about £10.00, whilst the screen will cost about £40-70 to replace.

(The vga cable may have also come loose, unlikely, but stripping the laptop by removing the screen assembly will show this. You would also need to do this to replace the inverter and / or screen.)

3.) Before stripping the laptop, try these steps:
  • Check the Adapter is putting out the correct voltage by connecting a multimeter set to 20volts DC to the DJ jack that plugs into the laptop. The red probe should connect to the inner of the jack and the black probe to the outer. If you get a lower reading, suspect the adapter is at fault.
  • Check the port that the adapter plugs into, it should not be loose or wobbly, if it is slack, it will require replacing.
  • Remove the battery and ac adapter, press the power button on and hold it for 30 seconds, this clears the cmos. Plug the ac adapter back in and try it, if it works ok, reinsert the battery. If it fail again, suspect the battery.
After taking all these steps, and getting no resolution, you should now look into the possibility that the motherboard is damaged, specifically the graphics chip. These tend to fail if the laptop has overheated. They cannot be easily checked, however, stripping the laptop will at least show you if there was dust build up in the CPU fan area and cooling radiator. If this was heavily clogged, it is almost certain that the chip has failed

Wobbly Laptop Screen


This is not for the faint hearted and because there are many types of different hinges used i cant be absolutley specific but here goes any way :)

You will probably need to lift the caseing aroung the top of the keyboard, then the caseing around the screen. There generaly lots and lots of small screws involved and some locking tabs.

I find the best way to deal with the locking tabs is to tease them open with something like a jewellers screw driver and then use

You should then be able to get to the hinges for the screen. The main problem I've seen with loose hinges is the plastic fixes for hinges have broken and the screws have fallen. If this is the case there isnt a great deal you can do other than replacing the screen caseings.

Hope this helps, if you need any more assistance please dont hesitate to ask.

Loose shift key....any advice on fixing it?

O.k. first the key. Most likely the retainer has come loose. Take the key off and check the if the retainer is broken, if so, then you will need to contact Compaq support for a new one. If it's not broken, take the key off the retainer, put the retainer back on the board, and place the key in it's general position and press. It will snap into place. If you can't figure out how they retainer fits, then take another key off, be careful to just remove the key leaving the retainer. This will give you a view of how the retainer goes on the board.

Now for the sound. You must do this in order to get the sound working with XP:

This model of Presario has an audio controller that supports
the high definition audio. You need to have Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) bus driver for high definition audio installed on the computer before installing the audio driver.
Here is the link for the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture driver that need to be installed before installing the audio driver:
After installing the UAA driver from the above links you have
to restart the notebook and then install Conexant high definition
audio driver from the following link :
Installing the audio drivers may result in an error, but continue
with the following steps to get the audio driver installed correctly.
1. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
2. Right click on "audio device on high definition audio bus" and click update driver.
3. Select "install from a list or specific location"
4. Click next. Then select "don't search, I will choose the driver to install"
5. Click next and then select "sound, video and game controller" from the list.
6. Click next and then click have disk.
7. Click browse C:swsetupsp34200 folder and select the .inf file and click open and continue with the on screen instructions.
