    If your keyboard is not responding now its a stuck key or it has disconnected somehow or has died an untimley death. this is not written in granite, but an educated guess...

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

Inpect the computers preexisting operating systems to ascertain compartibility to windows XP. Only XP computers would recognise XP operatign systems. Attemptign to install windows XP onto alternate system either windows 98, 2000, mellanuim or Vista XP or 7 is least achieveable unless the old system were erased or new empty storage disk drive were acquired and replaced.

On the bottom, it shows <esc=boot menu> <f1=setup> <f10=system recovery> but it doesn't respond to anything or move from this screen


Check that your keyboard is connected, and is working properly.
Try your keyboard on a different computer.
Try a different keyboard on your computer.

The 'ESC' key should always work.
The 'F1' key should always work.
If your disk-drive is *NOT* "dead", then the 'F10' key should work.

If neither 'ESC' nor 'F1' work, you have a serious problem with the motherboard.

MY LAPTOP(hp compaq presario v2000)BEEPS


hi roman razumo,

these are common infos you can see on beep codes.

if you have AMI, your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your SIMM's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard. (more info on this click here)

Unresponsive Keyboard -- HELP!


usb keyboard if new, needs to be installed first by windows but this is automatic and only needs a short time, just wait. But if your computer does not recognize it, usb support for keyboard should be enabled in the BIOS. restart your computer and press delete for cmos setup, if you can't see a setup form, maybe it is not delete to be press, try F1 or F2 until you can see the screen with the options to change CMOS setup.
