Hello earthaalford:
Your function keys are usually located on the top row and are labeled F1,F2,F3 and so forth. The function of those keys depends on what program you are currently operating in ie: Windows, Office , Word, Excel or any number of other programs.
Hope this helps, if it did just click the thumbs up.
Sincerely, Peter N.

Please open this LINK, scroll down to page no. 2-5 i.e. the section with "To use the Function Hot Keys Fn". There you'll find the details about the functional function keys of your compaq. It seems your function key i.e. Fn key is activated, to deactivate, press and hold down the Fn key while you tap the Numlock key once.

Return key acts as cap lock key


Go into System Preferences and select Keyboard & Mouse
Under Keyboard click on Change Keyboard Type... button
• Follow the basic steps to reset your Keyboard via the screen prompts.
Once you have done that select the Keyboard Shortcuts tab.
• Click the Restore Defaults button.

Now test your keyboard's return key. If this still does not resolve the Return key not functioning in the normal return key functionality,
Click Show All and go to the Universal Access pane in System Preferences and under Keyboard tab, make sure the Sticky Keys radio button is turned off.

Try these steps and let me know if there is any change.

Do you have a function key on your keyboard as this may have been pressed and therefore accessing shortcuts on your keyboard. The function key normally looks like this

Fn

Not sure but this may be your issue. Some function keys need to be held down and others will go on when pressed and stay on until they are pressed again.

Let me know if this helped

Keypad not functioning properly...


Check to see if your shift, control, alt, or other modifier keys are stuck on your keyboard. These can cause your keyboard to act erratically. Also, if this is a wireless keyboard, you may need to change the batteries, as this can also cause a keyboard to act erratically.

Function keys


Have you installed the software which follows with the keyboard? The function keys are usually activated via a software which often follows with the keyboard, probably on the driver CD.
