My Compaq Presario CQ60 keyboard doesn't work


Hello,

Try using a different keyboard and check if it does the same thing. If it does, then scan your computer for outdated drivers using RadarSync. You can Google for the updates as per the software suggests or you can let the software run the update.

How do I enable a compaq laptop's keys


Compaq Presario computers provide users with a row of function keys for added keyboard functionality. Function keys can serve a dual purpose as well.
Function keys are located at the top of Compaq Presario keyboards.
By learning how function keys work on a Compaq Presario you can take advantage of time saving keyboard shortcuts.Purpose
Use function keys to access menus, save changes and create shortcut keys.
Various applications, including Microsoft Office, allow you to select a function key as a shortcut key for running specific tasks. These settings are usually found under the Tools, Settings or File menu.
Each Compaq Presario computer has twelve function keys.
The most common used keys are "F2," "F8," "F10" and "F12."
The first three are used mainly to access and use the Compaq BIOS. "F12" is used to access a set of run from options during the boot process.

How to Access
Access function keys on a Compaq Presario by pressing any of the keys on the top row of the keyboard. Access the key's dual purpose by first pressing the "Fn" key located on the bottom row of keys.
Use function keys as shortcut keys by pressing them anytime while in the desired application. Remember, you must set them as shortcut keys first.
Note that some programs may already have certain function keys set as shortcuts.
Open menus and view the shortcut keys beside each menu item before setting your own shortcuts.


Dual Uses Each function key has a dual use. Press "Fn" plus the desired function key for the key's other use.
Below each function number is a small picture within a square or rectangle.
This dictates the dual use. "F1" opens help and support. "F2" serves as a printer shortcut.
Open your homepage by pressing "F3."
If you use dual monitors, switch between monitors by using "F4." "F5" puts your computer in stand-by mode.
Quickly lock your computer by pressing "F6." "F7" and "F8" adjust the screen's contrast.
Play and pause your music in Windows Media Player or other default media player by using "F9."
Press "F10" to stop playing media. Skip ahead or rewind media by using "F11" and "F12."

Other "Fn" Keys

In addition to function keys, the "Fn" key is also provides other keys with a dual use.
Any key with a small square on the key has a dual purpose such as the "scroll," "insert" and "delete" buttons.
Since laptop keyboards have no number pads, certain keys serve as the number pad by pressing the "Fn" key.

How to Restore an HP System Without a Disc

The HP computer uses a Microsoft Windows operating system to allow multiple users on your system. When your computer isn't working properly, you can do a system restore to restore the computer back to an earlier version. When you restore your HP computer, you will get rid of any viruses or malware that are on your system. You won't have to get in touch with Microsoft or HP to perform this restore, and you don't need any kind of disc.Windows contains all of the restore applications you need for your HP computer.
Instructions
1 Turn the computer off and then turn it back on. Hold down the "F8" key when the computer starts to enter Windows Boot mode.
2 Key over to the "Safe Mode With Command Prompt" option with the arrow keys on your keyboard.
3 Log into your system as an administrator. Enter the administrator password into the field when prompted and then click on the "OK" button to log in.
4 Type "%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe" and press the "Enter" key to begin the computer's restore process.
5 Go through the system restore prompts to restore your HP computer.


Restoring an HP computer to factory settings requires that you do a system recovery. There are two types of recovery for HP computers: destructive and non-destructive .

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but your friends install has caused the computer to forget its origin. Try a restore using the internal drive.
  • Turn it off and restart it
  • Tap f10 repeatedly while it boots
  • Choose Factory Restore
If that doesn't work, you can call Compaq with the serial number and they might have a phone fix. Chances are they will want you to send it to them for a factory restore. (Think $$$)
  • The alternative is to live with your friends install and forgo the Compaq software.
