    Same problem here, with the same Compaq model. It seems to be the
    keyboard reset code that needs a "full reset" rather than the
    more limited setup normally done by the kernel.

    In the 2.1 kernels, there is a "kbd-reset" boot parameter you can
    use. With 2.0, you'll need to change drivers/char/keyboard.c and
    remove the "#ifndef __i386__" / "#endif" surrounding the definitions
    for the keyboard reset (it's right near the beginning of the file).

    That seems to cure the problem for me.
