Re: Compaq Presario 2580US Keyboard

Sounds like dirt or some spilled soda.
-- Had the same problem after an OJ spill. --
If you feel comfortable about removing the keyboard, disconnect all the wires and cables, then kive the keyboard a thorough washing. Then let it dry overnight.
If that doesn't sound like something you want to attempt, then you will have to take it in to a computer shop.

Keyboard locks up

The only viable solution is to replace the keypad. They can be purchased on ebay, amazon and many other discount web sites. I am including a link with a good set of directions that includes pictures.

Don't worry, it's really not as hard as it looks. Just take your time and you will do fine.

Blue characters on the keyboard when I type

It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).
