Choose Screen Resolution For higher legibility of documents on screen, you can adjust the screen resolution of your monitor (for monitors that support more than one screen resolution option). The higher the number of pixels, the more information you can display on your screen and the smaller items appear. Lower screen resolution makes items appear larger and can benefit people with vision impairments. This procedure tells you how to adjust screen resolution through Display Properties in Control Panel.

How do I disable the wireless key on Compaq Presario CQ57 keyboard ?


We have several terminals with keyboards that are used by different people during the course of the day. We had a similar problem with the Caps Lock and Num Lock keys. Solution(s): Straighten out a paper clip and make a quarter inch hook at one end. Insert the hook under the offending key(s) and pop it up. You can easily replace the key should there ever be a need. No ham, no foul.

Computer freezes right after start up


Try to turn off the laptop. Remove the cables and battery on it , press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Then reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop. Turn it on, then check if the pc freezes up. If it is, check if your keyboard has lights on it. If there is no lights, need to call compaq to replace the motherboard. If keyboard has lights and you dont know how to remove the parts inside your laptop, you still call compaq to replace the power supply or the video card of your laptop.

Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX. Doesn't start


The laptop really only needs a motherboard and the switch located above your keyboard to turn on, of course powers required, My point being that it is more then likely your motherboard is fried or if theres any visible water damage, the switch above the keyboard works off a ribbon connect which has a pretty slim chance of becoming disconnected but you could check. If your the lucky guy you may just have a faulty charger or the dc input may have failed. Hope this helps

Theres a few websites and youtubes that show the exact teardown of your laptop if you need help taking it apart.

Compaq


Hi Tom,

Nice of you to do a direct "Ask Me"

Initially, the model is one I am not familiar with. But, a Compaq is a Compaq and a laptop is a laptop. Based on your description:
an IRQ and/or a hardware problem.

You could try (temporarily): removing the battery and using the laptop on AC adapter/charger only; removing any or all of the add-on cards; switching/removing any of the memories; removing connector of built-in touchpad and/or removing FDD/CD.

On all of the above, I would suspect either the battery or the touchpad more.

Incidentally, may I inquire where locally were you able to acquire the keyboards. I have need for two (2), both for Compaq Presario 2100s.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
