Plug your external keyboard in and go to Control Panel>system>hardware>device manager, right click on keyboard (not the external one) and unistall. Reboot your computer and take out the external keyboard, windows will pick your internal keyboard back up as new hardware and should set the keys back to normal.

I hope this helps

    sorry you do not need to plug your external keyboard in to do this, for some reason in my head I was thinking mouse. Anyway follow the instructions above without plugging your external keyboard.

The kepboard on my toshiba laptop does not work. I tried unlocking it and pressing the fn key and f9 at the same time but that does't work either. Do I need to get a new keyboard?


fn+f9 is mouse unlock on a toshiba if you know how to remove your keyboard from the laptop to see if it somehow became disconnected if it hasnt then you will have to fully remove it my disconnecting the keyboard from the motherboard and get some cleaning supplies or prefer running alcohol and some q-tips and carefully clean the connection on the board if it has golden pins when you remove the keyboard (keyboard connector on keyboard) then you will have to use a skinny flat object and a papertowel carefully

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

I think that possibly the keyboard isn't completely plugged in. Several things to try.

1] re-seat the keboard
2] swap keyboards with a 'known' good one [swa[ back is ok as well]

These 2actions should narrow done the issue, I have gotten replacement keyboards at re-sale for $3.00

I brought a used campaq IA-1 and cant delete old users and add me


there is only one way to restore this system, you will have to take the hard drive out and hook it up into another desktop and install windows 98/me or 2k to it and then put the drive back into the compaq more than likely you will have to download drivers for it as well

The Windows 98 system may have changed the drive letter of the thumb drive. In windows XP, open control panel - administrative tools. Then go into the removable drives option where you can change the drive letter. Change the thumb drive to a drive letter that does not conflict with another device on your system. Make sure your thumb drive is in the USB slot. Alternately, you can change the drive letter of the conflicting drive...

There should be a key on the top keyboard row on the laptop, probably one of the "F" keys that you use along with the "Function Key" on the laptop to enable an external monitor. The laptop display will turn off and the external monitor should come on.
