Presario c769us keyboard problem

Have a Presario c769us running Vista. Frequently, scrollable windows scroll to the bottom and stay there. I've discovered that hitting esc frees things up. I also discovered that using the scroll up/down buttons cause the problem every time. I think I have a keyboard problem. I was going to try to reseat the keyboard connector but could not get the keyboard off. I unscrewed the two screws marked as keyboard, then tried to free the keyboard but couldn't. I turned the keyboard upside down and gently pried against the top keys but no success. Any ideas?

    Yes. As I said, I think the keyboard is causing some repetitive characters to be sent which cause scroll windows to scroll to the bottom and stay there. The only way to break out of this is to hit ESC. I was going to reseat the keyboard connector but could not remove the keyboard. Thanks.

    Uninstall/install of drivers had no effect. Problem persists.

  • I understand that your Notebook Touch pad scrolling and keyboard is not working. Am I right?



1 Answer

To isolate the issue please uninstall and reinstall the Keyboar drivers and install the Touchpad drivers.

Here are the steps to uninstall Keyboard drivers.

Click start and in the start search box type Device Manager and press enter.

Then click on the + sign next to keyboard and right click on all the devices listed under Keyboard and select uninstall.

Then restart the Notebook. This will automatically install Keyboard drivers.

Here is the weblink to install Touchpad drivers.

Please do not click on the link. Copy and paste it in a new Internet Explorer window.

After installing the Touchpad drivers restart the Notebook to get the changes effect.

I hope this should resolve the issue.

Compaq Presario C769US PC Laptop heats up.

Right under that area of the keyboard there is a heat sink. If you look in the bottom of your laptop, in that area you will see a vent (and another towards the upper area of the bottom of the laptop). These vents are to keep the internal devices cool.

You can buy a laptop cooler online or in the store

Hope that helps!!

Compaq presario c769 laptop

mine is right in the center above the monitor. Assuming you are running VISTA, I think if you go to Control Panel, you'll get some guidance. You can always go to the Microsoft Help or the HP Help guides.

I turned mine on quite by accident while learning "Skype". I'm setting up my account, and all of a sudden I'm looking at this odd looking creature staring back at me. Then I realized it was ME. VERY SCARY!!!!!!

If you have Yahoo, you can turn your cam on if you are in Yahoo Messenger.

You can also type in "webcam" in the search box that comes up when you click on the windows logo in the lower left of your tray at the bottom of the moniitor.

Hope this all helps!
