What are the 8 keys above the function keys, my keyboard doesn't state what the keys are and I have no idea

Those keys do not exist on normal keyboards so they are unique to your keyboard. You need to look at the make and model of your keyboard and use to search for information about it. Typically, manufacturers add extra keys to make it easier to change volume settings and open email or internet programs. The icons on the buttons should be a clue to their function.

I hope this helps.

Volume control and other functions not working on my keyboard

Keyboards are dispossable parts of the computer , because of the usage sometimes, some key didn't work , the reason is the the flex wire connection underneath each key is very tin, so sometimes if we press the keys too hard, it might damaged the flex,

just buy a new one, it is more cheaper that trying to repair your existing keyboard

The sound button on my keyboard doesn't work

Well, reinstalling the drivers would have been my first bet...If you use volume control on your keyboard a lot, maybe pop off the key and check under for dirt/grime?

Volume button not working in compaq presario v 5000 laptop

You can either use the volume control builtin to the operating system or you can try re-installing the device driver for the hardware volume control.

Compaq keyboard randomly stopped working. Caps lock/Numb lock/ ect. light do not light up, shortcut buttons on top of keyboard flash once when I unplug the keyboard and plug it back in (not usb)


Have you tried another keyboard? What troubles me is you said that lights blink when you unplug and replug it in. This jack was never intened to be hot swappable (meaning plug and unplug with power on. I hope the only thing wrong is the keyboard else you'll need a serviceperson to diagnose the motherboard.

Software to make use of keys at the top of compaq keyboard sdm4700p

There is special software available from HP/Compaq that will allow the "Easy Access" buttons to work. I think there is also a template for Word, to make the label for the buttons. The software is about 7mb. For download check this HP page:

The file name is SP20295
