Compaq Presario C700 numbers showing up instead of letters

Either address your "Num Lock" Key keyboard or your "Fn" Key on your keyboard. Either of these, or a combination of both should solve the issue.

Please let us know if you need anything else.

I have a compaq Presario C500 laptop and I need to replace the keyboard. Do you have any ideas on how to do this?

The first thing you should do (if you are willing to take your laptop apart) is hunt for a good deal on a replacement keyboard. I was able to find one for ~17$ USD by using Google's shopping search:

After you receive the keyboard, you could attempt to replace the old yourself using instructions found on the internet, but I was unable to find them. If and when I need to replace my keyboard, I would begin removing screws and try to figure out how to remove the keyboard while being as gentle as possible. Once you get your laptop taken apart, (I have opened a few up previously) the keyboard is usually connected to the motherboard by way of a thin ribbon-like connection which can be unclipped and slipped out of the connectors. The keyboard can then be swapped out with a new one.

I wish I could find some instructions for you, Compaq's site used to be so informative, but now I can't even get disassembly instructions. If you don't feel comfortable with ripping your laptop apart, you could try FixYa's repair directory to find a fair price for a repair:

You could skip all this and contact Compaq about replacing the keyboard, but that seems like an expensive solution to me.

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

( )

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.
