    My Compaq Presario C500 Notebook computer is acting real crazy when I try to type numbers and letters. Some numbers give you letters and other symbols and vise versa, some letters give you numbers and other symbols.



    What is the deal with this computer?



    Can you help me?

I had a similar issue with my ASUS. Try finding a program on your computer other than the Control Panel that controls the trackpad. For instance mine is Elan Smart-Pad. Usually working with some of the configurations in the program reinitialize the trackpad. If that doesn't work make sure that it isn't turned of due to keyboard interference (hitting a button that turns the trackpad off). Hopefully that isn't the case though.

Entire Keyboard and Touchpad don't work! Compaq Presario CQ60


Fantastic, thank you for posting above that removing the battery sorted the problem. I had exactly the same problem as you with being able to sign in with my password but neither the keyboard or touch pad worked past this point. It's weird that the keyboard worked for signing in with the password but then didn't work anywhere else. Wonder what causes the problem coz I can't think of a logical explanation. Anyway I didn't have to hold the on/off button down for 2 mins. Just removing the battery and then replacing it cured it. I can't thank you enough for helping me to solve this.

Built in microphone


Try going to the control panel, then system, then device manager, find your audio icon and delete it(highlight it and press the "delete" key on your keyboard) then reboot your computer and see if it works then.

Removal of laptop keyboard


Dear ctmom

Please find below the link to download the


HP Pavilion zx5000 Notebook PC, HP Pavilion zv5000 Notebook PC, Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook PC, HP Compaq nx9100 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

( http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00212209.pdf )


Removing the keyboard firstly requires the removal of the top plastic strip in order to gain access with the screwdriver to the four screws. To remove it follow the instructions at pages 137 & 138 and you are almost there.

Then on page 139&140 you will find the information to remove the keyboard. It explains all the information very analytically. You are simply unscrewing the four screws on the top side. On the bottom it is simply slided.

TIP: Be careful when you are releasing the keyboard up towards you. The flexi cable that is connected to the motherboard is quite short-fragile and does not have a lot of space to move so go slow until you have released the connector’s tabs and the cable is loose to be removed.

Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work in the laptop.
