Question about Compaq Keyboard
I am getting the following characters and have no way to change them back to the correct ones for colon I get ? for forward slash I get ? for greater than sign I get " for less than sign I get ' for back slash I get ? for curly bracket I get ? etc. there are more but you get the picture. Is there any way to set the keboard back to it?s factory settings?
NO PC stated at all , just 36 years of HP production
NO OS stated, XP , VISTA, what?
no when or how you get those characters. ? "doing what?"
looks like a very old COMPAQ, square, PC, Laptop
most those are in the dumps now, parts hard to find, extreme.
are you running HP notepad.? program, ?
does it type wrong characters in notepad.
1: XP (is it) is infected. as all are... now... endless bad, here.
2: the keyboard has stuck keys. so it's bad ,kbd.
3: the XP is setup to some foreign language, and looks odd.
for example japanees , not english , so change it back.?
4: PC has hardware problem deeper like low power supplies ,etc.
does it run ok with the old now useless battery pack removed. be 1st step in all case of LT failures.
does it run ok with a free linux CD booted
yes/.no. if yes, XP is bad.
no then hardware bad.
5min work there and BAM answer.

Try reinstalling the driver for the keyboard. If that doesn't work try the keyboard on another computer. If the same thing happens you probably have a faulty keyboard and will need to replace it. If not, check for a more updated version of the driver at the manufacturers website.
