Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

Keyboard is locked

\015 The keyboard is locked. I can use the touch pad but can't type anything\015

Answers :

Does the problem occur outside of the operating system? For example, can you use the keyboard to enter the BIOS on boot up or if you are using Microsoft Windows, can you press F8 on the keyboard thereby causing the Microsoft Windows Boot Menu to appear?
\015\012If the keyboard does not function outside of the operating system, the problem is a hardware problem. If that is the case, you may need to reseat the keyboard cable on the motherboard. Maybe the keyboard cable has come loose.
\015\012If the problem is hardware related and reseating the cable does not fix the problem, you may need to replace the keyboard.
