Question about Compaq Keyboard

1 Answer

Some times my keys work sometimes they dont and the ones that do seem to change out with the ones that dont work.i.e. i press the number two key yesterday it worked. Today i cant use the one-four keys. and yesterday i could not use the letters o l i k m n j u p [ ; ' . , / please help. I am having to cut and paste almost all my letters that I use to type with. It took me three hours just to make this letter. I have tried updateing my driver to no success. I t also says my drivers are fine and the keyboard is working properly. Is this a virus that I may have downloaded? I have also reformatted my hard drive and the problem still occurs.

You possibly have a flaky keyboard matrix, This is quite common. See if an external keyboard has same problem to rule out the PC. Otherwise I think you may have to replace the keyboard. A relatively simple task. It simply plugs in to a socket with a ribbon cable.

Jusy bought a Lenovo Y50. I cant seem to type numbers using the numpad keys (home, page up, etc works when Numlock is toggled). Any advice would be appreciated.


You have to have NUMBERLOCK ON to use the number pad .if you don't want to use the number lock key all the time you can go into the bios and change the setting for numberlock , then your pc will boot with number lock on all the time.

My Touch pad does not work, can someone help? kenmore mocrowave model 721.62624200 microwave buttons work sporatically. if i push in a downward motion they work sometimes microwave blew a fuse a couple of...


It sounds like the keypad is worn out. The fact that you can get them to work sometimes by what direction you push on them, tells me that the contacts are not working correctly.

Did you have this problem prior to the fuse blowing or did it start after you replaced the fuse?

I don't believe the fuse blowing is related to the keypad problem. I also don't believe that you have a microprocessor problem because you say that the function buttons work but the number keys don't work right. If the microprocessor was faulty, it would not be able to read any of the keys.

The fact that the number keys are not working doesn't surprise me. When you go to cook something, you will press the number keys several times, while only pressing start or stop once. This is why your number keys have worn out first. These keys have a limited number of cycles (presses) and it sounds like its time for a new keypad.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

Dell Laptop - Keyboard "Fn" is causing problems!


I think it is not the Fn key but the NumLock that is activated. Look for the key labeled NumLk , this is the number lock. Also check if the light on the notbook with a number (usually number 1) is on. If it is on, yo must deactivate the numlock by pressing it again. It works in toggle mode. Sometimes the numlock is activated together with the shift key, sometimes with the function key.
