    thank you for the immediate feedback. although I am not sure if it is really the key board that has the problem because ever since I got the laptop I have not been able to use those particular function keys.

    thanks again

Try checking the ribbon for the keyboard. there should be plenty of service manuals for removing the keyboard. usualy its screws on the bottom that look like the standard keyboard symbol. if that doesnt work you most likely need to replace the keyboard. they can be found on ebay pretty inexpensive

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.

I do not know what the F keys are for, from F1 to F12. Where can I find out please? i DO NOT KNOW WHAT THESE FUNCTION KEYS DO.


The Function keys serve various functions for various programs and with laptops, in combination with the Fn key, the function keys have additional functionality such as increasing or decreasing illumination of the screen, mute on/off, touchpad lock/unlock, switch from external to internal monitor and so on. These special functions are labeled onto the keys themselves.
Here's a short list of what function keys do in various programs:

F1=Help
F2=Rename Desktop Icon
F3=Find
F4=Address Bar Autocomplete
F5=Refresh(on a webpage)
F6=Move cursor in structure (Address-Tool-Web)
F7=Caret Browsing
F8=Enter Safe Mode (while booting)
F9=Update selected text (MS Word)
F10=Menu Bar (MS Word)
F11=Full Screen
F12=Developer Tools
