Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
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

Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.
If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.
Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.
Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.
Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T
hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.
Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."
You'll see three options that have check boxes.
Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.
The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."
Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.
If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.
Turn off the computer.
Disconnect the power supply.
Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.
Turn the computer on.
This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.
hope this helps

Locate the function key on your keyboard (F1 through F12) that has an icon of a touchpad. This is often a rectangle with two smaller rectangles below it, representing the touchpad and its two buttons.
Press and hold the "Fn" key, usually found in the lower left area of your keyboard.
Press the touchpad function key and then release both keys. If this does not enable your touchpad, try holding the "Fn" key down and pressing the touchpad function key twice in a row.

Press the Windows icon key on your keyboard and hold it down until the Start menu pops up. If your keyboard doesn't have a Windows icon, press "Ctrl-Esc" at the same time.
