Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

Keyboard not working.

My compaq A910EM laptop has a keyboard problem.
I cannot even log on as the only keys working are the vowels, a,e,i,o,u and the number 4.
It was fine yesterday and this problem began when I started it up today.
I'm hoping a button sequence is the answer.
Please help.

    Thanks a lot for the suggestion. However, since I posted the problem, I have tried connecting a seperate usb keyboard and that has the same problem.



    Can any body help?

Press the FN+NumLock key - you have probably switch on NumLock???

If not, then the keyboard cable has probably come loose.
Look for some way to remove the keyboard. Sometimes a screw from underneath, sometimes two or three small catches at front of keyboard (small gaps in metal plate in front of space bar). Sometimes top plastic bar above keyboard slides sideways.

Keyboard cable uses goes into a header socket - to refit:
Switch off and remove battery and power first!
1. Prise up each end of the socket with a blunt knife - the outer part of the socket should move up a few mm
2. Push keyboard cable down fully
3. Push down each end of the header socket so it is flush with the lower part of the socket.
4. Test keyboard

Compaq nc 6220 laptop keyboard water damaged and all keys unresponsive


We have all done it .It was a cup of tea that went over my last laptop and there was no way that I could repair it. If you have insurance cover on it specifically you may be able to claim, otherwise expensive repair.
Keyboards start around 19 pounds free postage on Amazon There are wireless ones too. Hope this helps Anna

Compaq cq60 keys not working


The keyboard maybe faulty.
Connect an external keyboard to youe laptop and if all the key work on this keyboard then most like the laptop keyboard is faulty.
If this external keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the laptop motherboard is faulty and it would not be worth repairing as this is an old model laptop.
