You may get an error message on boot up, something like "Input device not detected". Otherwise it should boot up fine if you don't get this message. Not much you can do without a keyboard though.

SOURCE: mY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot

Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.

I am looking for num lock activation on presario cq60 at boot in order to avoid having to press it each time it boots up.


Hi

i believe if you do this

press the FN key bottom left along with the nulock which is usually on the top right

so it should be FN+nulock


many thanks

Make sure your cd drive is the first boot device. Go into your bios and go to the BOOT tab. Select your cd drive as the first device. You may also have to pull out your ram sticks and put them back in. Make sure tou take out the battery and ac power is not connected when dealing with the ram.

restart your computer. on boot it will say press del for bios. do that. in case it enters the bios menu then keyboard is fine. probably some virus in windows. if not then your keyboard is damaged.

Compaq presario cq60 keyboard


Hi,
If the problem is intermittent then the problem could just be foreign objects like crumbs and hair that's trapped under the keys.

Turn the laptop off and stand it on it's side with the lid open. Get a soft, dry paintbrush and brush the keys, gently tap the keyboard in various places with the back of the paintbrush to help dislodge anything that's trapped.

Once your satisfied all the keys are clear turn the laptop on and see if it has made any difference.

If it has not then you may need to replace the keyboard.

Good luck.
