Question about Compaq Easy Access Smartcard Keyboard

1 Answer

Club Q button on the top of my multimedia model 5185 keyboard attached to mu Presario.

I have successfully configured all of the top buttons:  connect, search, Email,Help and Calculator.  But the one labeled Club Q is not listed under the keyboard buttons options.  I have upgraded my driver, and there still is no 6th (actually it is the 4th one to the right) button showing up under my keyboard options.
It just bugs me, no real big deal.  I have no idea what Club Q is, so I am not missing it.  Just curious.

    Yes, I'm the same! Exactly the same. Except it does bug me because I when I press the Q button I get a message telling me to hurry up and go customise it. Except I can't.

I have just bought a second hand Compaq 5185 keyboard and I would like to know how to configure the special top buttons. Some work, others don't.


Certain models of HP desktop computer come with an "Internet Keyboard" packaged in with the other equipment. This Internet Keyboard differs from a regular keyboard in that it has a series of buttons along the sides that allow you to do things like open your Web browser with the tap of a button. You can reassign the actions to these keys and reprogram it away from its default settings using your Control Panel.

Click "Start." Click "Control Panel." Click "Keyboard." Click the "Hardware" tab, then click the "Properties" button. Click the listing for the Internet keyboard key you want to change. In the "Target" box, select the program you want that key to open. Click "Apply." The specified key will now open the specified program. Repeat this step for all of the other keys on your Internet keyboard that you want to configure.

Hello, looking at the manual for the 7520, just below the power button that is in the top-centre of the keyboard, is a row of buttons called the 'easy launch buttons' The left-most one has a sort of scripted 'e' symbol on it, and the one next to it has a symbol meant to look like a satellite dish ..(well kind of...) ,well, that's the one you want!
Hope this help you.

If you want to check if the software is installed correctly and the keyboard is working fine try using the multimedia key. If you are able to use the multimedia keys for reducing and increasing the volume or mute the sound that means it is working fine.

I am having problem with setting up wireless natural multimedia keyboard, does it have a separate receiver transmitter


It shouldn't if the wireless keyboard and mouse came together as a set. Try reconnecting the keyboard first then the mouse.
Here is how....
Each should have a connect button on the under side of the keyboard and on the mouse. The receiver may have a button on the top to push to first then push the buttons on the keyboard and then the mouse.

The microphone may not work because of a hardware or configuration problem. To determine if it's a hardware problem, test the microphone in Sound Recorder.

  1. Click "Start," > "Programs" ("All Programs" for Windows XP) > "Accessories" > "Entertainment" > "Sound Recorder."
  2. Click the Record button and speak into the microphone of the camera. You should see the green line move, indicating the application is picking up sound.
  3. Click the Stop button.
  4. Click the Play button. If there is no sound at playback, check to make sure the correct device is selected.
    1. Click "Edit," then "Audio Properties."
    2. Make sure Logitech is listed as the Preferred device for "Sound recording."
The microphone may also be defective. To test this, try the camera on another USB enabled system.
If you can record sound in Sound Recorder, but not in the QuickCam application, try setting the Logitech Microphone as the Preferred device in Audio Properties.
Multimedia Keyboards:
A multimedia keyboard is a keyboard that has a button which can automatically control your computer volume. If you have a multimedia keyboard installed, the software for the multimedia keyboard may need to be uninstalled in order for the camera's microphone to work properly in Windows. Please contact Logitech with the make and model of the multimedia keyboard that is causing the problem. While we will not be able to assist you other than to advise to uninstall the keyboard software, it will help us determine the root cause of the incompatibility.

You probably need to load the Compaq utility that assigns and activates the keys. Go to http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq_support.html
enter the model number of your compaq computer, and search the available downloads for the utility.

Top Buttons on Keyboard not working


Go to your Start menu, Control Panel, then look for Keyboard.  Sometime keyboard is listed by itself, other times it is under another device name.  Click open keyboard, then click on the BUTTONS tab.  You will see 5 "buttons or selection options:  Calculator, E-Mail, Help, Search,Connect.  Mine does not open the Club Q button ...that's what I am searching for at this time.
Skip the calculator one (once the others enable, this one fixes itself for some reason. I went to the e-mail button first.  Double click it. Under choose a button capability: scroll down to the "Simple local file with label".  Then go to the bottom "ADRRESS" area, delete what is there and put in your favorite web based e-amail addree login address.  For yahoo.com it would be:  Http://login.yahoo.com ...yahoo will switch you to their secure server don't worry.  Do the same for any of te buttons you wish to change.

If the buttons do not show up at all, then you will need to upgrade your driver.  HP has an upgrade for its multimedia keyboard, I am sure you can google yours and find it, even if Windows cannot do so.
You have to have the Calcultor chosen on your Windows setup for it to work, but it just pops up after you update the other buttons.  If it doesn't. Its address on an XP os is:  something like: c (whatver your hardrive is located)://windows/system32/calc.exe ... thing is it can be different for different systems.
Now to figure out how to use that 6th button, the Q Club one?
Good luck.
