The Computer turns on but none of the applications work. The touch pad on the laptop does not work and the start menu is not visible. Whenever I click on something it says, " the application has failed to start because the application is incorrect." Is there anything I can do besides a system restore?

Examine your keyboard to ensure your "Number Lock" key is not activated. This activation is indicated by the key being lit up. If the key is activated, press it to deactivate the lock. The number lock key will deactivate an entire segment of your keyboard
Start, click Run, and type regedit to open the Windows registry editor. In the registry, open the below folders.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Control Panel\ Keyboard\ Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.
0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon. 1 = Disable Num Lock. 2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon. Hope this helps.
Your laptop comes with a touch pad that acts as a mouse. Instead of connecting a mouse each time you want to use your laptop, you can use the touch pad that is integrated underneath the keyboard. This comes in handy when you are in a tight spot such as in a classroom or on an airplane. At times, you may need to unlock the laptop touch pad because someone who borrowed your laptop disabled it. It may also be locked due to a slight malfunction that you can easily fix by enabling the touch pad in your computer settings. Click the Windows "Start" button in the bottom-left corner of your desktop. Scroll up and click "Control Panel." Choose the "Mouse" icon or type "Mouse" in the field in the upper-right corner. Click the "Enter" button and then click the "Mouse" link. Press the "Hardware" tab or the tab to the right of it that specifies the type of touch pad you have. If you are under the "Hardware" tab, highlight the touch pad in the list of devices and click the "Enable" button. If you are under the touch pad tab, click the enable button. Click the "Apply" button and then click the "OK" button. Hope this helps.
manufacture is compaq
model number is under the laptop
If you right click on my computer and go to properties you can see how much ram is in your computer.
If you open my computer right click properties on the c: drive you can see drive size.
normal size for the hp touch pad is around
sure you deleted something, how else can a driver just go byebye.
NO OS stated is this XP
we cant guess what OS is there ever.
so does mouse work, usb plugged in , that be first.
after checking device manager, for touch pad , driver errors
then know a pad this old can be bad.
it can also be set wrong in control panel, click mouse
and set it as you like.
i dont know if this is any help but have you dropped any liquid in the phone or have you changed the casing as this can happen when a cheap (dont mean you) alternative to motorola casings are used as there arwe sometimes edged parts which can be touching the touch pad by mistake if none of the above then has it been dropped as this also causes the cicuit board to malfunction
If Windows service pack 1 - doesnot all recent drivers and will not recognize your touch pad and even keyboard. Try to boot on Safemode. Just press on F8 when your start your computer - and connect an usb mouse and try to install the touch pad drive manually. Then boot on normal mode and install your other drivers.. It is recommended to update quickly your os to Service pack 2 or 3 for best performance of your computer.
