I would try cleaning your keyboard. If you are gentle you can remove the F10 key and check that they is no dirt underneath. Check other keys near the F10 key in case others have the same problem. I know that a sugary Cola spillage on a keyboard really sticks things up. In that case it was easiest to get a new keyboard.

Utilize the numLK button located in the upper right area of the keyboard. Depending on the layout, you may need to press it in conjunction with the Fn or Shift key.

SOURCE: keyboard keys non functional

I spilled a little water on my keyboard as well.Just a few drops not much but the keyboard stopped working , some of the keys at least.I bought a new keyboard from the Internet and it works like a charm now.
They have pretty good install pictures on this site.I watched the pictures and replaced the keyboard myself.It took me no more than 20 min.I payed something like 20-30 bucks for the keyboard.

PS
I called a shop here in Vegas and they were asking 75 just to "diagnose the problem".

How do I enable a compaq laptop's keys


Compaq Presario computers provide users with a row of function keys for added keyboard functionality. Function keys can serve a dual purpose as well.
Function keys are located at the top of Compaq Presario keyboards.
By learning how function keys work on a Compaq Presario you can take advantage of time saving keyboard shortcuts.Purpose
Use function keys to access menus, save changes and create shortcut keys.
Various applications, including Microsoft Office, allow you to select a function key as a shortcut key for running specific tasks. These settings are usually found under the Tools, Settings or File menu.
Each Compaq Presario computer has twelve function keys.
The most common used keys are "F2," "F8," "F10" and "F12."
The first three are used mainly to access and use the Compaq BIOS. "F12" is used to access a set of run from options during the boot process.

How to Access
Access function keys on a Compaq Presario by pressing any of the keys on the top row of the keyboard. Access the key's dual purpose by first pressing the "Fn" key located on the bottom row of keys.
Use function keys as shortcut keys by pressing them anytime while in the desired application. Remember, you must set them as shortcut keys first.
Note that some programs may already have certain function keys set as shortcuts.
Open menus and view the shortcut keys beside each menu item before setting your own shortcuts.


Dual Uses Each function key has a dual use. Press "Fn" plus the desired function key for the key's other use.
Below each function number is a small picture within a square or rectangle.
This dictates the dual use. "F1" opens help and support. "F2" serves as a printer shortcut.
Open your homepage by pressing "F3."
If you use dual monitors, switch between monitors by using "F4." "F5" puts your computer in stand-by mode.
Quickly lock your computer by pressing "F6." "F7" and "F8" adjust the screen's contrast.
Play and pause your music in Windows Media Player or other default media player by using "F9."
Press "F10" to stop playing media. Skip ahead or rewind media by using "F11" and "F12."

Other "Fn" Keys

In addition to function keys, the "Fn" key is also provides other keys with a dual use.
Any key with a small square on the key has a dual purpose such as the "scroll," "insert" and "delete" buttons.
Since laptop keyboards have no number pads, certain keys serve as the number pad by pressing the "Fn" key.

My son has a TI-84 Plus calculator and it is completely frozen. There is a message on the screen that reads " RAM cleared". Below that message it says "Press ALPHA F1-F4 to locate shortcut menus" but it...


The calculator OS has been upgraded to the version 2.53 MP.
For this version, whenever you remove batteries (or replace them) and turn calculator ON, you are reminded to Press [ALPHA][F1-F4] to locate Shortcuts Menu.
The calculator also asks the user to press either
[1:Do NOT show Again]
[2:Continue].

Here is what these cryptic messages mean.

Certain functions implemented on the new OS are available by pressing the [ALPHA] key followed by F1, F2, F3 or F4.
Since you may forget how to get to them, the calculator gently reminds you that there are other functions accessed only by pressing the [ALPHA] key.
It also gives you the option to flash the reminder every time the calculator memory is reset (CONTINUE) or NOT to SHOW the REMINDER again.

Usually after the RAM cleared message, press [2:Continue] or any other key but [1: ] to keep being reminded how to access the new functions.
Once a key is pressed the screen is cleared and you have the solid blinking cursor.
