How do I enable a compaq laptop's keys


Compaq Presario computers provide users with a row of function keys for added keyboard functionality. Function keys can serve a dual purpose as well.
Function keys are located at the top of Compaq Presario keyboards.
By learning how function keys work on a Compaq Presario you can take advantage of time saving keyboard shortcuts.Purpose
Use function keys to access menus, save changes and create shortcut keys.
Various applications, including Microsoft Office, allow you to select a function key as a shortcut key for running specific tasks. These settings are usually found under the Tools, Settings or File menu.
Each Compaq Presario computer has twelve function keys.
The most common used keys are "F2," "F8," "F10" and "F12."
The first three are used mainly to access and use the Compaq BIOS. "F12" is used to access a set of run from options during the boot process.

How to Access
Access function keys on a Compaq Presario by pressing any of the keys on the top row of the keyboard. Access the key's dual purpose by first pressing the "Fn" key located on the bottom row of keys.
Use function keys as shortcut keys by pressing them anytime while in the desired application. Remember, you must set them as shortcut keys first.
Note that some programs may already have certain function keys set as shortcuts.
Open menus and view the shortcut keys beside each menu item before setting your own shortcuts.


Dual Uses Each function key has a dual use. Press "Fn" plus the desired function key for the key's other use.
Below each function number is a small picture within a square or rectangle.
This dictates the dual use. "F1" opens help and support. "F2" serves as a printer shortcut.
Open your homepage by pressing "F3."
If you use dual monitors, switch between monitors by using "F4." "F5" puts your computer in stand-by mode.
Quickly lock your computer by pressing "F6." "F7" and "F8" adjust the screen's contrast.
Play and pause your music in Windows Media Player or other default media player by using "F9."
Press "F10" to stop playing media. Skip ahead or rewind media by using "F11" and "F12."

Other "Fn" Keys

In addition to function keys, the "Fn" key is also provides other keys with a dual use.
Any key with a small square on the key has a dual purpose such as the "scroll," "insert" and "delete" buttons.
Since laptop keyboards have no number pads, certain keys serve as the number pad by pressing the "Fn" key.

I just connected my compaq presario notebook to my hdtv and it is not working what am i doing wrong?


Without knowing the exact model number of your computer, and what connection you are using, it's hard to say. However try pressing 'Function' + 'F4' and see if you see the display on your TV (May take a few seconds to transfer the image. If you do not see an image, try pressing it again as most computers have several different display modes it can cycle through. It could also be a different 'F' key that you may need to press.

Good Luck

My Fn F4 key is not working is any other option lcd connectivity


Hello

Just follow any of the method

Method 1:
  • Press Home (the 4 boxes doing the wave) then after pressing it a box should pop up, press the button R... press Enter , then watch as you computer restarts. When it is finished loading log back in and it will work, this also works for many errors and bug reports too.
Method 2:
  • Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicationg that the funtion keys are in use. depends on the brand
Wishing you success

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 laptop and was told that I had my scroll lock activated because the numbers on my number pad only half work. The 0, ., 4, 5, 6, /, *, - all work. The 1, 2, 3, enter, 7, 8,...


Find 'fn' key (this is short for function) then find 'num lock' key in your case it must be another key with and extra label with the same font color as 'fn', this means this key behaves differently when pressed with 'fn'. When you have located both key press fn+num lock a led indicating that numeric lock is activated should go off and you're done.

Your computer has a program on it called quick launch. It could be that the function key won't work until the program is loaded up into the memory of your computer.
