  1. Hi,

    I have compaq nx9010 laptop. My Hard Disk was crashed and I got new one from Toshiba. So before starting the fresh install I thought start with bios flash. I did the flash but now keyboard workd partially and F8 is also not working hence I'm unable to install the windows. I opened the laptop , cleaned the keyboard wire with alcohol still no luck. What could be the problem?Any suggestions please?

    Uhm, first try another reflash. If this doesnt work I suggest you take it back (if still under warranty) otherwise go to an IT expert. There is not a lot that can be done without seeing the hardware.

    Thanks Guys,

    Yes I did reflash again, but the result is same :( However It has ps/2 post
    so I just connected keyboard externally to it and it worked fabulously.
    Does that mean Laptop's keyboard is gone?
