"G" "H" "Alt"

Good day, Hope all is well with you and yours.

My Laptop Compac Presario,, at any given moment would stop displaying certain keys when pressed, after holding down the key for about 7-10 seconds it responds. there are more keys but due to the reduced use of them I hardly notice, but the "G; H; Alt" constantly in use, and it's sometimes anoying and if i don't pay attention, I get logged out of certain sites due to too many tries(passwords incorrect for missing the G or H)
Still need to determin if it's due to HEAT/programs in the BACKGROUND. when tilted on the side it sometimes help not all the time(ventilation) Help please. Thanks in advance. alexmartus.marriott@hotmail.com / alexmartus@hotmail.com

Hi there, I would download Spybot from www.safer-networking.org and run it. See if it picks any baddies up.

If it doesn't then it could just be that the ribbon that links the keyboard to the motherboard has come loose. Let me know the details of your laptop model and if you feel comfortable you should be able to sort it out in about 10 minutes or so.

Regards

Chris

An upside down image - this is caused by unintentionalpressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key. Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key. ALSO To change the display from portrait to landscape Press Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key. Some computers do not have this function.

I Have HP Compac c301 laptop I forgot my Password how to log in to my laptop


You can always log in as the root administrator by pressing ctrl+alt+del on after you've reached the logon screen. Key in the user name as "administrator" and the password. Hope the password is blank.

Once you are logged in as administrator, you can reset your account's password using the User Accounts in Control Panel.

I have compaq pc presario c300 i cant open windows meaning when i start up my laptop the xp window is just come n go faster (popUp)


When you boot up press F8 function key and Windows will give a list of boot options, select Last Known Good Configuration and hopefully Windows will start up correctly. If not boot up again, press F8 and select Safe Mode and Windows should boot up in standard VGA display mode.
If this doesn't work you need the Compac restore CD disk that came with your laptop. Boot up with this CD to restore your laptop, you most likely will lose data.

Can't find my bios on my compac presario ez2200


  1. Turn on the computer.
  2. When the first screen displays, immediately press the F10 key if your computer was built in 2006 or later (came with Vista). Press the F1 key if your computer was built before 2006 (XP or earlier). Press the key once every second until a BIOS Setup utility screen opens.

Presario v2000 will not work


There is a specific known issue with the Bios on certain model laptops that once the Bios has failed the laptop will not boot. It happened with my wifes 6000. I searched for a week and then finally found a very obscure article about it. I called HP/Compaq and gave them the symptoms and what I had already done (reseated the memory, hard drive and verified that the AC Adapter was good) Finally they acknowledged that her SN laptop had the known issue and sent me a box to ship it to them for motherboard replacement. The laptop was 4 months out of warranty so if I hadn't found this it would have been junk. Good Luck.

Presario r3000 laptop 2/3yrs old occasionally the screen goes black . if i adjust screen open past 90 degrees the display returns.???how is thescreen powered from the base.??? larry thanks


The display is wired...it is flat, thin and flexible. There may now be a break point in the conductor...fixed by replacing same.

Alternative solution is to use external monitor. I'm almost certain your laptop has this capability...look on rear panel for a D-sub 3-row VGA connector. Plug in a VGA monitor and enable through keyboard Fn-(combination key)...look at key symbols for one that looks like a monitor.
