I just got this Compaq F700 from brother in law and the keyboard is messed up. When I type it jumps all over and puts letters in between other words. What is the problem and can it be fixed?

My Compaq laptop keyboard seems to be stuck in ALT mode. All the keys which have an alternate character in the upper right corner, will only type those characters. For example, the "m" key will only type...


Never ran into this problem myself but a friend of mine has. He said what fixed his what holding Fn + Num Lock and it remedied his problem.
Unless your key is stuck/broken you can also try a can of air and try to blow it out and or pull the key and make sure its not stuck down.
But deff try the holding Fn + Num Lock method first.

Keyboard Keys Mismatch error


this could be caused by a couple of different issues:
1st Depending on the operating system you have loaded, it could have the wrong keyboard type or emulation selected.
2nd The keyboard or its cable could be bad, it will not necessarily quit until it goes completely out.

Compaq presario c700 keyboard mulfunction


There are 2 common problems for this.
1. Something got stuck under the keyboard of your laptop. Food scraps or Dirt and Grime build-up due to sweaty palms or fingers clean the keyboard.
2.The Membrane on your keyboard that act as a switch cold be shorted due to wear and tear or heavy key presses. Have your keyboard replaced.

Other problems could be cracked board if you happen to lean or put heavy stuff over the keyboard and cracked ribbon connector.

Keyboard has stopped working


Shutdown your pc. Turn it on, then hold the F8 key. If nothing happens and goes into windows, your keyboard is damaged.  You can contact Compaq support to have it fixed if your under warranty. If your out of warranty, you may want to dismantle the keyboard and check its connection leading to the motherboard. You may want to remove it and reseat it again.
Hope this helps.

Presario C700 keyboard problem


Hello Dan-0,

The problem probably does not rely on the BIOS, if anything your operating system may have detected the wrong keyboard. Can you give me an example of what keys exactly are coming out funny.. for instance when you press L does it show up 7 or @ or a character in a different language?

What operating system are you using? Windows/Linux, XP,Vista?

Regards,

-Chester

Compaq Presario 700 PC Notebook keyboard locking out


Check that your notebook power settings are correct, it may be that when you press off or shutdown it's actually going into hibernation or standby, this is only correct when you close the lid without shutting down through Windows. As for Windows Media Player, you cannot remove it as it's a Windows component, you can only dissable it through Add/Remove programmes>Add/Remove Windows Components.
