Re: screen display

It's hard to find a Compaq manual their site, but they indicate you'll find this in the help files on your computer.
This is usually done with a combination of keys-look for the Fn key and a key that looks like a sun symbol. It may have an arrow pointing up or down. Use these keys together to change the brightness.

I have no sound whatsoever, and i don't know the model of my compaq laptop

The serial number and Model numbers are on a sticker under the battery. Remove the battery and see what the model number is, then you can get the proper sound drivers. The HP website might also be able to auto detect what your laptop is. All Compaqs are actually HPs since HP owns the label.

Where is clock battery in my laptop compaq presario 1246

Remove the touchpad screws on the bottom of the laptop. Lift the touchpad and the keyboard. Remove the flat metal heatpipe above the CPU (3 screws). On the bottom left, just above the HDD you should see a small circuit board held by 3 screws. Remove these, lift the circuit board and there you go, the battery is there.

Compaq presario 1246 d.c. socket

Hi this is not an easy job and the work would need a step by step live chat to do, I dont know if you could get a tech such as myself to live chat for about two and a half hours. My best solution for you is that you look on Ebay in the computer section, there is often advertised computer ebooks, some especialy for laptops. I do not know how good these books are but it may be a way for you to solve the problem you have. Just make sure that as you dismantle you laptop you write down where every piece and every screw goes or you will end up with a lot of leftovers. Regards mistyman
