SOURCE: HP Compaq NX960 Laptop Keyboard Problem

This is generally a sensitivity issue with the keyboard. It's usually caused when the rubber depressors that activate each key start getting worn. Sometimes you can take each key off individually, take off the rubber depressor and clean the contact point on the keyboard and up inside the depressor where it makes contact. Clean it with with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. This is alot of work and only fixes the problem about 60% of the time. Your only other option is replacing the keyboard.

SOURCE: how to restore to factory settings presario cq50

2 possible solutions to this

1. Use the roll back function of your operating system to roll back to the last back up.

2. Insert your restore disk or Windows disk and do a format/clean install.

If you have a restore disc it will have prompts to "restore" your system and give you a warning about losing data-save off what you want BEFORE doing this restore

If you have standard windows disk you may want to use the format utility in windows first to clean the drive and do a fresh install.

Once installed don't forget to download updates and back up and then reload your other software.

have fun this will take several hours depeneding on the amount of stuff you have to reload and patch up.

How to turn on keyboard backlit on Compaq CQ57 laptop?


CQ-nnnnn what is nnnnn , may Cq57 made, all different nnnnnn
QC-100,.-200.,300, 400, series
your service tag tells you the full model number.
nor the OS (unstated)
XP, VISTA, W7 or W8?
this is what was used for the full series of production runs.
and they are NOT THE SAME.
tell what BACKLIT means. LEDs dead but at least name ONE>?

Please tell the helper this.
what OS first.?
tell exactly what Backlits (lights) fail, name them.
caps lock or ? what? give examples of what fails and what you are attempting to do..
on my newer HP, there are no keyboard lamps at all
not one but the HP has back panel that glows for that.
but needs the HP software loaded to make that work
only HP software works on that feature, period.

what operating system is this.?

the CQ57-400 is the last series is this it. why must i guess?
support for it is limited to this.

ill guess 400 for you as 1 example
then ill guess w7 32b
then you see this and load all these driver.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/compaq-presario-cq57-400-notebook-pc-series/5186820

now il guess 100
here
https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/compaq-presario-cq57-100-notebook-pc-series/5059083


looks like last one made was 2012 (Compaq ended in 2013 at HP)
so has support until 2022. at HP.com
load all your drivers for you PC on the HP page.
skip BIOS. (line)

the problem here is HP used 2 processors here.
Intel
and AMD
mixing drivers up is problematic. here.
takes skills to do this.
why not ask at HP do this is.
real HP forums.... BINGO?

How do I disable the wireless key on Compaq Presario CQ57 keyboard ?


We have several terminals with keyboards that are used by different people during the course of the day. We had a similar problem with the Caps Lock and Num Lock keys. Solution(s): Straighten out a paper clip and make a quarter inch hook at one end. Insert the hook under the offending key(s) and pop it up. You can easily replace the key should there ever be a need. No ham, no foul.
