Go to your Start menu, Control Panel, then look for Keyboard.  Sometime keyboard is listed by itself, other times it is under another device name.  Click open keyboard, then click on the BUTTONS tab.  You will see 5 "buttons or selection options:  Calculator, E-Mail, Help, Search,Connect.  Mine does not open the Club Q button ...that's what I am searching for at this time.
Skip the calculator one (once the others enable, this one fixes itself for some reason. I went to the e-mail button first.  Double click it. Under choose a button capability: scroll down to the "Simple local file with label".  Then go to the bottom "ADRRESS" area, delete what is there and put in your favorite web based e-amail addree login address.  For yahoo.com it would be:  Http://login.yahoo.com ...yahoo will switch you to their secure server don't worry.  Do the same for any of te buttons you wish to change.

If the buttons do not show up at all, then you will need to upgrade your driver.  HP has an upgrade for its multimedia keyboard, I am sure you can google yours and find it, even if Windows cannot do so.
You have to have the Calcultor chosen on your Windows setup for it to work, but it just pops up after you update the other buttons.  If it doesn't. Its address on an XP os is:  something like: c (whatver your hardrive is located)://windows/system32/calc.exe ... thing is it can be different for different systems.
Now to figure out how to use that 6th button, the Q Club one?
Good luck.

None of the numeric buttons work. the BIN button is highlighted at top and that appears to be the problem

That is normal: In binary numeration you only have two digits 0 and 1. Get the calculator out of BASE-n calculation mode.
Press [MODE] and select 0:COMP the general calculator mode.

My TI-84 Plus calculator won't work. It won't switch off by itself. When the batteries are reinserted, it says that all RAM has been cleared. When i press the 'ON' button again, the screen clears. but...

The Ram cleared message is normal after you change batteries. When you see this message you press the CLEAR button to erase it. You do not press the ON button again because the calculator is already ON. If you want to turn calculator OFF you press [2nd][ON] (OFF).

On certain calculators, pressing the ON button when calculator is already ON is interpreted as INTERRUPT the current command.

I have purchased a Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 700 (Keyboard & mouse). I have plugged the wireless receiver in, and get a flashing green light when I press the button on the front. The green...

When you say you pressed the connect buttons on both the keyboard and mouse, do you mean you pressed the connect button on the receiver, and then you pressed the connect buttons on the mouse and keyboard? If not, then that's what you have to do. The 30 seconds of blinking on the receiver is normal, as it gives you time to find and press the buttons on the mouse and keyboard.

I hope this helps, and good luck!

None of my buttons work except the ON button

Sounds like a possible short to me, But I don't have experience with that cause I have yet to test my calc with water if you know what I mean... The one thing that I can suggest is trying to connect with another persons calc and try the "send OS" command to see if that will reset your calc to a working state. Sorry to hear about the damage though.

You probably need to load the Compaq utility that assigns and activates the keys. Go to http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq_support.html
enter the model number of your compaq computer, and search the available downloads for the utility.
