Question about Compaq Keyboard
Hello experts, i would like to ask assitance from you guys about the steps or ways in testing the keyboard using the multitester or generally the ways of troubleshooting it. I am sure that my keyboard is the problem because when i try other keyboards my pc works well. Thank you....
Your best bet is to just buy a new keyboard. There's not sense trying to repair an old keyboard because you can purchase new one's so cheap.

Tips for a great answer:
If you have not tried this yet, follow the instructions
There is a Device Self Test Diagnostic Application that will test your BB including your keys on your keyboard. You can check each key one at a time. Go to OPTIONS, (the WRENCH ICON).
On this screen select STATUS.
Type the word TEST. (you won't see it but it will give you a
prompt when ready to proceed. (
It will prompt you to select START from the MENU.
This will begin the diagnostic selection process.
Click on KEYBOARD & TRACKBALL.
Click on RUN.
Press each key one at a time they should show up on the
screen as you do so. If they do not
function the keyboard is probably defective.
should take the phone to the corporate store of the service provider to have it
replaced if it is under warranty or if insured. Call the insurance company if
it is out of warranty. Either way your
BB should be replaced.
PS Note down any error messages you receive (in this case
diagnostic test failed) so you can accurately tell the technician/counter
person when he asks for the problem. It
can help the Tech speed things up while troubleshooting.
