    I've had this compaq presario 2500 for over a year now. The past month, it had been shutting down randomly. Recently, my l and comma keys don't work also. I'm about ot just say hell with it and buy a new laptop, are these easy fixes? I Heard this is a common occurance with compaq presarios...any ideas? Should i just buy a new notebook? :bowdown:

    Shutting down randomly could be anything from a hardware, software or even a spyware issue. Do you get/see any blue screens when the machine comes back on?

    As for some keys not working, have you tried another keyboard?

    No it just sounds like it dies. Really weird. I was considering just getting a desktop, how much do keyboards run? The reason im asking, is it worth to fix it, or ami better off getting a new desktop?

    I'd open up the machine, blow the dust out if any, make sure all cables/cards are seated correctly, format and get another keyboard...

    Worst case, you would have wasted a couple of hours and a few bucks on a keyboard.
