Remove key bord np 300 e


No exact guides. Using experience, and one video I found.

Three styles are generally used to fasten a Keyboard to a laptop;

1) Screws come from the Bottom of the laptop, up into the Keyboard.
Not always, but most of the time; there is a marking near the screw hole.
KB, or Keyboard, or a Keyboard symbol; and an arrow pointing from it, at the screw hole.

Screws removed there may be Keyboard Cover screws to remove, and remove the Keyboard Cover also.

2) Keyboard Cover. Cover is above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen.
Once removed, there are generally 2 to 3 screws, to remove at the Top of the Keyboard; or screws come up from the Bottom of the laptop.

3) Detent Latches.
Spring loaded little latches, immediately above the top edge of the Keyboard.
Usually 3 to 5 latches.

Generally start at the Left side, depress the first latch.
Let's say it is the 3 latch design.

One clip to depress, may be above; and in-between the F2 and F3 keys.
The next clip at the top in-between the F7 and F8 keys.
The last clip at the top in-between the F12 and Insert (Etc), keys.

This is the style I think you have. Amount of spring loaded latches,
I do not know. I base it off of this disassembly video,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrMbmV2daAw

I base it on 10:53 through 10:58 in the video.
He's holding the Top Cover (Palm Rest Cover) in his hand, and the Keyboard is still attached.

(Nope. Never removes Keyboard, lol!)

1) Suggest lay a soft Static free cloth, on the table you're working on.
Helps prevent scratching the table, and laptop.
(DO not perform this on a bed, couch, or directly on a carpet floor.
HIGH areas of Static electricity)

2) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

3) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-dell-inspiron-n5110-inspiron-15r-laptop/

Linked for specifically showing the spring latch design.
Go to Steps 5 through 11.

Steps 5 through 8 for the spring latch info;
9 and 10 for the Keyboard Cable removal, from the ZIF motherboard connector.

NOTE*
A) Keyboard Cable STAYS with Keyboard. It disconnects FROM the motherboard connector.

B) The Keyboard Cable is an FFC. Flat Flex Cable.
It has NO plug connector on the cable, for the motherboard connector.

Just a flat cable with flat terminal contact strips on the end,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flat-Flex-Cable.jpg

It MUST go back in the motherboard connector, the SAME way it came out.
For this reason, you may wish to make a mark on one side of the cable, and a matching mark on the same side of the motherboard connector. (Sharpee?)

Then when installing new Keyboard (If this is what you are after), you compare the two; and line the Keyboard Cable up off of the old one.

The bottom rectangular part, that is white in this example; is the BODY.
It is Stationary to the motherboard.

The upper part, that is Black in this example; is the Locking Bar.
When closed, the Locking Bar wedges the Keyboard Cable, in the Body. Can also be stated as when Locked.

I call this style the Flip-Up style. (Pretty technical, huh? lol!)
You may also have this style, the Slide style,

Closed (Locked),

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L675D-L670D/big-body/dismantle-laptop-10.jpg

Open (Unlocked)

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L675D-L670D/big-body/dismantle-laptop-11.jpg

All you can see of the Locking Bar here, are two 'Tabs' on either side of the Keyboard Cable.
The 'Tabs' are eased up with your Thumbnails.

Use a metal tool, and you can slip. Possibly break the motherboard connector, and could stab the motherboard.

It ONLY moves about 2mm. That is a little more than 1/16th of an Inch, or about the width of this capital letter -> O <-

Being detailed because IF you BREAK the motherboard connector, you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT.

Be careful, go slow.

Locate cmos battery


Locations of these devices vary from model to model but, in most cases, these devices are found underneath the keyboard. Some manufacturers locate the cells in odd places like underneath a mouse ball, touch pad or in the screen frame housing. Not all CMOS batteries are CR232

HP ProBook 4510s , how to upgrade memory? This lap top is totally covered from the back side.


Very quickly.....
1. Turn the machine over and looking at the "back" of the machine, locate the two screws and remove the screw covers hiding the two screws and then remove the screws.
2. Remove the battery and then remove the small silver screws at the "bottom" of the battery slot.
3. Turn the laptop over and lift the screen up/open as far as it goes.
4. The power cover, will now be able to slide "up" towards the screen. Be careful!! It should only move less than a 1/4", then lift the cover up.
5. Remove the two screws found towards each side of the exposed area to be able to move the keyboard.
6. Just like the power cover, the keyboard will now be able to slide "up" towards the screen, again it should only move less than 1/4".
7. The RAM is located below the keyboard and you can either replace or add the necessary chips.
Putting the laptop back together is just a matter of working backwards from this small list.
NOTE!!! When you slide the power cover back on, pay close attention that the "hinges" latch properly on the edge; this edge is seen on the bottom of the laptop where the battery goes. This should be checked before you put the small screws back in the battery compartment.
Good luck and God Bless

I cant find cmos battery where can i find?


Hello heartsaver..The CMOS battery is located inside the notebook on the motherboard...Lots of little screws to remove to get to it...heres a guideline to follow if u wish to attempt it...

1. Remove the battery (side latch release) and hard drive. The only screw that holds it down is marked F-4 on the cover. (look for the panel with the 2" circle, that is the HD)
Use the white pull tab to move it left then upwards. It should move with little effort. Be careful not to loose the screw from the HD panel.

2.Remove all screws annotated F6 from the bottom bezel with a Pt. 2 screwdriver. (from my count there was around 15)
Depending on the screwdriver, there are times where you might have to push the screwdriver down a bit to get in contact with the thread. Just be careful not to strip the threading.

3.Remove the "B25" screw located near the heat sink-fan vent. Somewhat carefully take your hand, and lift the bottom bezel up enought to disconnect (about 1-2 inches from surface) the battery with your index and midde finger. Look at they way the battery is run, and seated in the pastic clips..this is IMPORTANT.
With the bottom semi-open, plug in the replacement battery, and re-seat it in underneath the white ribbon cable, and clips on the housing per the original.

4. Replace all screws

5. Re-seat the hard drive, by sliding it in first with the metal tab under the plastic housing, to the left, then puling it to the right. Replace the panel with the one, shorter, F-4 screw. Reseat the battery.

If you wish to test the battery, simply unplug it and remove the battery for 30 minutes. Then power it on with only the A/C adapter. If no CMOS screen appears, you are good to go.

Good luck..i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.

Need to open Averatec 3500 notebook case to replace battery


Hi.

You have not looked closely enough on top of the keyboard. The keyboard is like on a tray that it can be removed separately, the trick there is... at the top part there, use a flat screw driver to set free the keyboard .... see picture for guidance:

Once detached you'll see your CMOS battery ready for replacement.

Happy Fixya!!!

Replace dvd drive on eMachines laptop


I have removed this drive from my M5414 by removing the bottom case screw that is in between the battery latch and the Left edge of the DVD drive door as you face it. The trick is getting a hold on the drive to remove it AFTER THIS SCREW IS REMOVED.

I solved this problem by opening the drive before shutting down the computer.
Next remove the battery.
Now remove the bottom case screw between the battery latch and the left corner of the DVD drive.
Now since the door is open you can extend it all the way and grab INSIDE THE TRAY, NOT THE FRONT BEZEL, and gently pull it straight out.
Be patient, you may have to wiggle it slowly and gently left to right, you will feel it loosen, and notice it move forward. IF NOT, DO NOT FORCE IT.

CAN'T REMOVE THE BATTERY


You need to disconnect the laptop battery from the computer and also the ac adapter so there is no power.

Then you will need to unscrew the generally 2 screws on the memory cover to get to the ram. I will have to get a service manual for your unit and confirm how its done.
