This could be caused by a couple of different issues:
1st Depending on the operating system you have loaded, it could have the wrong keyboard type or emulation selected.
2nd The keyboard or its cable could be bad, it will not necessarily quit until it goes completely out.

Compaq CQ60 some keys not working


The keyboard maybe faulty.
Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.
If this external keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the laptop motherboard is faulty and it would not be worth repairing as this is an old model laptop.

How do I use the blue colour keys on my compaq presario laptop keyboard


please forgive short answers or bad typing i broke my wrist in an auto accident last night. there should be a a key marked "mode", "fn" or something similar, it will most likely be blue. this key should toggle the blue keys on or off. some computers also require the num lock to be on as well before this works. some computers allow you to set different activation methods through keyboard in control panel. please note most computers require you to have a driver installed for these keys to work. good luck.

Compaq presario cq60 keyboard


Hi,
If the problem is intermittent then the problem could just be foreign objects like crumbs and hair that's trapped under the keys.

Turn the laptop off and stand it on it's side with the lid open. Get a soft, dry paintbrush and brush the keys, gently tap the keyboard in various places with the back of the paintbrush to help dislodge anything that's trapped.

Once your satisfied all the keys are clear turn the laptop on and see if it has made any difference.

If it has not then you may need to replace the keyboard.

Good luck.

How do I replace a Compaq Presario V5000 laptop keyboard?


You need a flat bladded thin screw driver to prise off the long cover the runs along the top of the keyboard and just below the screen. Make sure you remove any screws at the back of the screen hinges, and along the top above the battery housing (you need a small posidrive screwdriver for this). You will find there is a screw on the underside of the laptop that holds the keyboard in place from underneath, plus two or three very small screws on the top at the screen end. When all the screws are removed you can lift the keyboard up from the screen end and pull (gently) away from the touch-pad end. Tilt it up and you will see the keyboard data ribbon, don't twist it or pull it as you will damage it.

hope this helps

Could be a stuck key somewhere, has anything been wasted on the keypad, tap the keys one by one to refresh is. Could also be that the keyboard is broken.

Hitachi flora laptop and problems with typing @ symbol


Using it in English mode? Does that mean that Windows is set to English??

Does it have a standard QWERTY english keyboard?? If it has a japanese keyboard, with windows set to English, then the keys will be different. Shift key with number 2 gives you the @ symbol on a QWERTY english keyboard.
