There is special software available from HP/Compaq that will allow the "Easy Access" buttons to work. I think there is also a template for Word, to make the label for the buttons. The software is about 7mb. For download check this HP page:


The file name is SP20295

Usually what I do for things like this is look on the back of the computer for a barcode with a number or something labelled 'service tag'.  I know Dell does this, but not sure about HP-Compaq. I search for that number in the "Support & Drivers" section on their website to find all the drivers specific to my computer.  You might be able to get the keyboard driver in this manner. If you have any trouble, please post back with your computer's model number and I will help more.
Also, if this is not the keyboard that came with the computer, you may need to visit the manufacturer's site for the keyboard.

Problem with Compaq Keyboard when ever i use the top line of my keyboard the closet number to the key press appears aswell. I am using a Compaq Pressario example: th8is 8is an 3exam0pl3e


Maybe your keys are stuck from eating or dropping some sticky liquid on the keyboard, so when you press a key it also presses another.

Maybe your Keyboard has been hijacked by a virus or infection.

It could be that the keyboard is going bad.

Turn off the computer, remove the keyboard, then Clean the keyboard by taking a can of compressed air and blowing out the trash and dust. Then take a damp cloth and a butter knife and clean between the keys to make sure none of them stick. When you are done, plug the keyboard back into the computer then reboot.

If cleaning does not solve it, reboot the computer into Safe Mode and see if the keys do the same thing. If not, that means you probably have a virus or infection that has hijacked the keyboard.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click the link to goto the site and look on the left side when the site opens up and you will see agray area that says FIND SOFTWARE. In the white search box under FindSoftware type: "Virtual Keyboard" (without the quotes) and click themirror to search. When the search results come back look for FREE VIRTUALKEYBOARD. Download and Install it. It's totally FREE. Alsouncheck anything that pops up other than the license agreement during thedownload and installation. You only want the Free Keyboard and not theother junk.

You can use it to solve your keyboard problem. Just open up whatever it is youwant to type on such as the web address in an browser, a word document, etc.,then open the Free Virtual Keyboard and it will sit on top of whatever you weredoing. You can move it around so that it is not in your way also.

Arrow keys not working


Have you booted up into safe mode to see if the arrow keys work? Maybe your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus. Maybe the keyboard cable needs to be reseated (pulled out and put back in).

In the meantime you can get your arrow keys by using the Virtual Keyboard and use your mouse to point and click on the arrow key when you want it.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"download.cnet.com" (without the quotes). Click the link to goto the site and look on the left side when the site opens up and you will see agray area that says FIND SOFTWARE. In the white search box under FindSoftware type: "Virtual Keyboard" (without the quotes) and click themirror to search. When the search results come back look for FREE VIRTUALKEYBOARD.

Keybord buttons on top dont work


For those keys to function, you need to install the drivers and software that came with the keyboard. If you don't have the disk, you can find the software and drivers for download at the keyboard manufacturer's website.

Special keyboard keys not working.


You need install or reinstall the driver software that came with the computer this keyboard was supplied with. Windows itself doesn't know what those keys do.

If you are still using that computer and you haven't erased the original factory software, the drivers should be in a directory somewhere on the hard drive. Compaq usually has a folder called "compaq" on the root (that is, it should be c:\compaq) and a folder in that called "drivers". This isn't always true, but the drivers you need should be in a similar folder somewhere.

If you don't have the drivers on the disk, you can download them from the HP/Compaq website, but you'll have to have the computer model number.

Compaq keyboard


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.
