The letter k on my keyboard functions only when some pressure is applied the netbook is almost new and has been hardly used is it possible that the keyboard needs already to be replaced


Judging on your symptoms, it sounds like a replacement keyboard might be in order. If the machine is out of warranty, you can purchase replacement keyboards yourself.
Search "(computer model) keyboard" into eBay. You should see many products available for a reasonable price.
You should have a screw or two on the bottom of your laptop that have a keyboard icon next to them. Removing these screws should allow you pop the keyboard out and replace it. There is also a ribbon cable under there, so be careful when removing. For more info, search "replace (computer model) keyboard" in YouTube or a similar site. There should be many tutorials on keyboard replacement.

Does not boot makes a clicking sound


You have a key stuck on the keyboard. Unplug your keyboard turn the computer on if it it gets past the post, then you need to find which key is stuck. If the keyboard is usb then you can plug it in when you free the key. If it is PS2 style you can shut off power right after it starts with out clicking. Once off key freed you can turn it back on. If key is not findable replace keyboard. After verifing no keyboard no clicking.

My compaq presario lcd is working but it has no lights


If by lights, you mean the LED lights located around the exterior of the laptop (like the power light, hard drive light, etc.) then you may have accidentally switched those off.

First you need to locate the 'FN' key. On most laptops it's located on the bottom left of the keyboard, under the 'shift' key.

Next you will need to look for a symbol on the keyboard that would represent the LEDs. It's usually a light bulb, and is almost always located on the 'Fx' keys on the top of your keyboard (F1, F2, F3, etc.).

Once you have located the correct key, you need to hold the 'fn' key that we found earlier, and press the 'Fx' key that corresponds to the LED (or light bulb) button.

For example, on a older model Gateway laptop, I will hold the 'FN' key on the bottom left, and press 'F1'.

If by lights you mean the backlighting for the LCD screen, which would make the LCD screen appear very dim, then you will have to have the screen serviced or replaced.

I hope that helps, and if you have any questions, please let me know.

I have a compaq Presario C500 laptop and I need to replace the keyboard. Do you have any ideas on how to do this?


Hello,
The first thing you should do (if you are willing to take your laptop apart) is hunt for a good deal on a replacement keyboard. I was able to find one for ~17$ USD by using Google's shopping search:

http://www.google.com/products?q=compaq+C500+replacement+keyboard&oe=UTF-8&scoring=p

After you receive the keyboard, you could attempt to replace the old yourself using instructions found on the internet, but I was unable to find them. If and when I need to replace my keyboard, I would begin removing screws and try to figure out how to remove the keyboard while being as gentle as possible. Once you get your laptop taken apart, (I have opened a few up previously) the keyboard is usually connected to the motherboard by way of a thin ribbon-like connection which can be unclipped and slipped out of the connectors. The keyboard can then be swapped out with a new one.

I wish I could find some instructions for you, Compaq's site used to be so informative, but now I can't even get disassembly instructions. If you don't feel comfortable with ripping your laptop apart, you could try FixYa's repair directory to find a fair price for a repair:

You could skip all this and contact Compaq about replacing the keyboard, but that seems like an expensive solution to me.

I was cleaning my laptop keypad and one of the keys has come off....not sure how to put it back. Compaq Presario C700


Usually laptop keyboards are a unit by-itself meaning you may not be able to get individual key replacements if you were to request these directly from the manufacturer... I would probably be getting compaq on the phone to find out how much it costs to either have the they keyboard serviced (if possible) or the quoute on getting a replacement keyboard as even in the service manual for several laptops there's no specifics on how to remove keys from the keyboard but only how to deattach the whole unit for servicing porpuses.
