Question about Compaq Keyboard

1 Answer

I don't know what to do

My cat took a walk over my compaq laptop keyboard and now I'm finding that there's some issues that haven't been there before. The highlighter is highlighting multiple items at once, the spacebar now sends the page up, I no longer have control over the number keys and get the symbols instead. Honestly, I'm not compter literate, I bought the thing to help me through my classes at school and now I'm at my wit's end. Please help?

This also sounds mechanical. check between the keys for as much rubbish as you can, then clear it. if this doesnt solve your problem, then start to go from there. seriously, this doesnt sound like a foul up in the normal sense (software). more like simple dirt to me. check everywhere. suspect even the smallest piece of dirt.keyboards are pretty robust these days, but sometimes even the smallest of things can cause immense foul ups. if this does not work, let me know. there are somethings that can still be tried after that, but they are more difficult to do with a fouled up keyboard, believe me.

How to Install Compaq Laptop Keyboard


Compaq laptop keyboards have a variety of sizes and configurations to fit the design of the laptop itself like smaller laptops or larger laptops with full-size keys. You might now find that the keyboard or keypad exhibits problems such as sticking keys or general unresponsiveness from your owning Compaq Presario laptop because of several years'using. Besides, you have made sure that your old keyboad is clean but it still doesn't work well. Then you have to install a new one. So how to do it? Don't worry, you can DIY your Compaq new keyboard via this guide.
Step1. Exit Windows and turn off your computer.
Step2. Unplug the power cord and modem and network cables.
Step3. Place your laptop on a clean and disconnect the old keyboard. Open your laptop screen as far as you can.
If you are installing a USB keyboard, connect the keyboard to a USB port on the back of your computer.
Step4. Use the flathead screwdriver to pop open the hinge cover. Slowly and carefully pry it open from the right side to the left side, exposing the keyboard screws. Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that hold the Compaq Keyboard in place.
Note: Keep these screws in a safe place.
Step5. Gently tug the Compaq Keyboard component toward your laptop display. You are trying to pull it out of the slot that is located near the palm rest and mouse pad. It doesn't take much force, but you must be firm. Once you have pulled it out of the slot, you can lift it up and remove it from your laptop.
Step6. Take the replacement keyboard and slide it into the slot. Once in place, screw it into place with the Phillips screwdriver and the screws you removed in Step 2. Fit the hinge cover back into place by snapping it in from left to right.
Step7. Connect the power on your laptop and verify that the new Compaq Keyboard is working.
OK, well done! Compaq keyboards are inexpensive, easy to find and quick to install. Actually, all Compaq Presario laptops have reasonable prices and you don’t have to worry if something breaks down as replacements are easy to find and cheap to buy from Papatek. Papatek Compaq Laptop Keyboard are specifically designed for each Compaq laptop brand and model.

Need to find list/definitions of "function Keys"


Please open this LINK, scroll down to page no. 2-5 i.e. the section with "To use the Function Hot Keys Fn". There you'll find the details about the functional function keys of your compaq. It seems your function key i.e. Fn key is activated, to deactivate, press and hold down the Fn key while you tap the Numlock key once.

Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Screen went almost dark after cat walked across keyboard


Laptop keyboards have a function key that changes the brightness level. You access this by using the FN key on the bottom of the keyboard along with the brightness level, possibly the F8 key. There should be icons on the 'F' keys to show which key will increase the brightness on the display.

I hope you find this information helpful.

My cat walked across my laptop and now I have lights on I don't think were there before and can't figure out what they mean. On the top of the keyboard there is a red light that keeps blinking on the far...


I can definitely help you but I need to know at least what the model of the laptop is. It is a gateway laptop right? it should have the model number on the bottom of the laptop. Are you using it now? I'd say the \'c\' sounds like caps lock but that doesn't appear to be the issue since you are typing in normal characters...

The cat definitely turned on a few things, the keys have multiple functions... hard to say what is what without the model of the laptop, but you should have a FUNCTION key or FN key... and then the keys themselves (such as KJHLKS) have multiple functions, usually written in the same color as the FN key... You can just play around with them and see what turns on what..

Let me know the model and I can be more specific,

Thanks
Tim

Right click on the desktop and you should get a drop down box that includes Graphics Options. In there you can change the Rotation for your display.
