I have had the Compaq Presario V2555US for about 3 years now. The mouse, keyboard, power/wlan button was stating to freeze while using the pc. I would have to unplug and pull the battery out to restart it. Well it was getting worse so thought it might be a software issue. Reinstalled xp and all others from scratch after formatting the hdd. Well now I know it's hardware issue. Can I fix this myself? Can I get parts?

Re: Mouse, keys, power/wlan buttons freeze
YOU CAN REPLACE THE KEYBOARD, BUY NEW WIRELESS/LAN BUT IM NOT SURE ABOUT THE TOUCHPAD, IF YOU MEAN USB MOUSE OF COURSE YOU CAN BUY NEW ONE,
YOU CAN TAKE OUT KEYBORAD AND WIRELESS LAN AND BUY THE PARTS AT YOUR LOCAL HARDWARE STORE. TO OPEN YOUR LAPTOP YOU NEED TO READ THE MANUAL FIRST FROM THE COMPAQ WEBSITE, http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Nav?h_pagetype=s-001&h_lang=en&h_cc=us&h_product=432984&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_page=hpcom&lang=en&cc=us
SELECT YOUR LAPTOP MANUAL AND CHOOSE PRODUCT MANUAL IN PDF FILE, AFTER THAT JUST NEED SCREW DIVER AND THE PARTS. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTION IN THE MANUAL.

a machine that new I would defiantly take it back and have it either fixed or replace, time is on your side i would take advantage of the manufacture warranty. i would also look on the keyboard see if there is a mouse locking feature, its normally the picture of a mouse on one of your function keys, press function and the key with the mouse icon on it and that may take care of it.
seems like a problem with the touchpad, first disable and enable the touchpad with the button which is located at the top of the touchpad, the corresponding LED should change from blue to orange and vice versa. If this doesn't solve the issue, reinstall the driver for the touchpad, you can find this by searching for 'recovery manager' in the start bar. Next step is to select 'advance options' and choose reïnstall hardware driver, there should be an option called 'Synaptics touchpad driver' select and install.
I think the mouse setting is set to left handed and the right clicker is the main clicker and the left is the context menu key. Knowing this, you should follow these steps. 1. Go to "Control Panel" 2. Click "Printers and Other Hardware" 3. Click "Mouse" 4. Go to the "Buttons" tab and switch the setting to right handed

Hope u r hibernating the laptop..
It seems that ur lap is junked with a lot of registery files and starup files.. so it takes a lot of memory to perform its operations and subsequently it hangs up.. and i hope u have installed norton anti viurs. this antivirus needs a lot of resources. better u install Mcafee.
The best thing u can do is to install a fresh copy of windows. this will solve ur problem.. and remember keep the startup items to the min level.
On your laptops power management settings, you will probably find an advanced tab.
In there you should be able to assign the power button to 'Shutdown', as it is probably 'Hibernate' enabled.
The mouse problem is probably your laptops touch pad driver, update drivers from Hewlett Packard site if there are any.
