I would be glad to assist you. First, I need to know if you have the Original CDs that comes with your Laptop. If you do, I need to know what OS do you have (i.e. XP home, XP prof, Vista, etc.). I'll be waiting for your reply.

Keyboard hang or not working

Sounds to me it could be a missing or corrupt driver. I would suggest to run a repair install of your Windows OS (not a full setup just a partial one where it says "repair"). This would reinstall your drivers properly. The initial cause of this possible driver corruption could be a virus so please make sure your system is clean of all badware before running the OS repair install. If this works, please do rate me. Thanks

Compaq R4000 failed to open the window - how to fix the problem?

I had the same problem with mine. There is an option of "repairing" on the recovery disc that actually keeps all files and software intact. It worked for me, much better than the full re-format of the hard drive and new install of the OS.
