How to Repair, Replace and Change HP Laptop Keyboard


We are surprised that HP has done a nice job taking laptop market share from Dell and launching a slick marketing campaign using the slogan "the computer is personal again". Hewlett Packard laptop computers feature the functionality of a desktop computer in regard to their keyboards. However, because of size limitations, some laptops feature special keys that serve specific functions. Using these particular keys requires only the development of some new keyboard habits, like locating and pressing the "fn" button. With many HP laptops, the "fn" button is encircled.
When a key fell off the laptop keyboard, most likely you can fix the keyboard. It often comes: using a small dab of super glue to replace keys that have fallen off and then placing a small dab of glue directly on the round part that holds the key in place and lightly press the key down. When the glue dries, you’ll be able to use your laptop again.
However, not all problems can be fixed this way, and a keyboard replacement for a laptop may be necessary. Besides, this is not an overly complex process on an HP laptop just with simple steps.
Step 1 Power down your HP laptop and Flip over the HP laptop and locate the RAM section. Press the HP battery release lever and pull the battery out of the laptop. To remove the battery on most laptops, you'll just push a release tab and pull the battery out of the connectors, but with some you'll have to remove screws. You'll know what to do once you get ready to disconnect the battery.
The RAM section is in the bottom center of the back of the machine. Use your Phillips-head screwdriver and remove the two screws securing this cover. Remove the cover.
Step 2 Use your Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the rest of the keyboard-related screws on the back of the laptop. There are three silver screws and five black screws to take out. The three silver screws each have a keyboard icon printed next to them. The other five screws are aligned at the top of the laptop back and beneath the battery.
Step 3 Use a flathead screwdriver to pop up the HP Keyboard shield. Wiggle it under each side of the shield and carefully pop it up. The shield is located at the top of the front of the laptop (just above the keyboard itself). Place it aside and out of the way, since this shield can be easily damaged or warped after it is removed.
Step 4 Pull up on the keyboard carefully and slowly. Do not pull all the way; otherwise, you may damage the cable underneath. There is a keyboard cable holding the keyboard in place. De-attach it from the unit by locating the connector beneath the keyboard. Flip the connector lock into the up position and disconnect the cable. Remove the keyboard.
Step 5 Take the new keyboard and attach the keyboard cable to the connector, and push the connector down. Slide the new keyboard in. Replace the keyboard shield.
Step 6 Turn the HP laptop back over. Replace the set of five black plastic screws, and then the three silver screws. Replace the RAM cover.
A quick notes, when you unscrew the screw on the bottom of the laptop, just remove the screw with a "keyboard icon", not unscrewing every screw you see!

What should I look for while choosing the best email marketing service provider?


Hi
That totally depends on what your business goals are. You should ideally do thorough research on a few vendors before finalizing on one. There are many email marketing agencies and not all of them will provide complete services. I wanted to get email marketing services for a campaign that I was going to launch on a large scale. That`s when I shortlisted MetricFox for the Email Marketing services they have on offer. From ensuring that that content is target-audience oriented to helping me minimize campaign costs, they had it all covered. I especially liked the fact that once I wrote to them at info@metricfox.com they were really quick to respond.

But to answer as to what you should look for in an email marketing service provider these are my suggestions:

  • Market reputation and years active. MetricFox for instance has been in the market for over a decade and could give me the names of a few Fortune 500 company executives for reference.
  • The type of email service provided. Some email marketing agencies will only look at running email campaigns, while others will also analyze campaign performance. Choose one that suits your need.
  • Ask for deliverables. Email campaigns have varying results. From a meagre 0.4% to 40%, response varies greatly. A lot of that depends on deliverables. Choose a vendor who promises 75% deliverables at least. In our case, we got 87% deliverables, mostly because MetricFox was using permission based email addresses only.
So once you invest in their service you can be rest assured that your campaigns are certain to get noticed. I minimized campaign costs and got the best results.
Hope this will help you to decide better.
