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.

Missing key


Hi Allie18,
If the cat has not eaten the small plastic clips that fixes the key to the keyboard, you are in luck.
Just place the key over the keyboard, align it so it is square with the other keys, push it down firmly until it clicks into place.
If this does not work then you have some missing parts or bent piece of plastic.
If you are game, you can remove an adjoining key by lifting it up, then you can check this key and see if it matches the other key for missing or bent parts.
Your Dell supplier may have replacement keys, if not you will need to replace the whole keyboard.
