Have you tried "Delete" to enter the "Bios Settings"? If not this must be the shortcut for your laptop, since most compaqs' Bios settings are accessed with "del" key. Actually for Hp compaq laptops, F1, F2, F10 and Delete keys are the shortcuts. (varies with series/models).
If this doesn't help, try Fn+F1, Fn+F2, Fn+F10 etc..
In wordprocessing or email the backspace key deletes the previous charachter and isnot the same as the Delete key which deletes the next charachter.
On my girlfriend's french pc the delete key is marked "Suppr". It works to delete the next character and also for the "executive override" function which will reboot an old pc or get you to Task Manager in windows.
try ur on screen keyboard.
start,al programs,accessories,accessability,on screen keyboard.
if any keyboard buttons are broke u can still use the functions with the on screen keyboard.
on one of my laptops the enter and del keys dont work so I use the on screen keyboard when I need the function of those keys.
The Dell has a "Fn" key. The "Fn" used with other keys control special features. I have a Dell keyboard here, on it holding the "Fn" and pressing "End" will alternately mute/unmute the speakers. "Fn" + "Page up" will raise volume, "Fn" + "Page down" will lower. You may have the volume muted, or turned all the way down. The keyboard I have is from an 1100, your "Fn" key combinations may vary from mine.
Make sure Num Lock is on (the light belonging to numlock is on). Then use Fn + Keys with a blue number on it to use the keypad. Make sure you hold the fn-key, for each number you want to type... If this doesn't work, try Fn + Esc. If your laptop goes to standby mode, The Function key is allright, and there is another problem. If it does not work, your keyboard may not be installed probably, or may be defect. Please post some feedback,
Yes you can go into your display properties and look in the settings tab and look for advanced click that and open color tab or the overlay tab, color tab should get your brightness turned up, And if you can't see you can go into your bios and adjust your brightness from there and get it back to where you can see it if you can't write me back here so we can try another method. Ok I hope that helps you out somewhat, Oh yeah you can also hook up an external key board into your usb connections and you should be able to work everything from that too.
