    My laptop (Compaq EVO N800v) recently got reformatted due to getting attacked by 5 viruses. I'm trying to figure out why the keyboard suddenly stops working. Luckily it will start working again after I restart my computer, but it is such a pain to have to restart over and over again. Please help!

My first solution for you would be, press the key Fn at the bottom left side of the keyboard and and the key on the top right hand side called ""num lik"" or ""scroll"". First hold the FN key down and then press only do not hold the num lik key.

Please tell me if you need a better explanation because I think I did not explained myself very clear.

Hi!  Thank you for getting back to me!  The orange light next to the mouse pad is on, but nothing else.  We can't get any further than the login page, we click on the name, but we can't type in the password to log in at all.  I can re-start the computer because the mousepad works, but I can't even press the F10 button when it restarts.  I wonder if the keypad can get locked...
Thanks!

The keyboard and mousepad is not working


Without looking at it, I would have to say that the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard/mouse to the motherboard has been disconnected, you will need to research that. May be simple. Has there been any water spilled on it?

KEYBOARD DRIVER FOR COMPAQ R4000


There is no driver from Compaq because it just uses a standard driver from the operating system.
