How do I replace a Compaq Presario V5000 laptop keyboard?

I need to replace a Compaq Presario V5000 laptop keyboard with a new one. My younger brother messed up the keys and with one of the arrow keys he tried to GLUE it back together hahahaha.

I know how to remove the keyboard itself, but does anyone know how to take out the facing part that holds it in place?

Thanks.

You need a flat bladded thin screw driver to prise off the long cover the runs along the top of the keyboard and just below the screen. Make sure you remove any screws at the back of the screen hinges, and along the top above the battery housing (you need a small posidrive screwdriver for this). You will find there is a screw on the underside of the laptop that holds the keyboard in place from underneath, plus two or three very small screws on the top at the screen end. When all the screws are removed you can lift the keyboard up from the screen end and pull (gently) away from the touch-pad end. Tilt it up and you will see the keyboard data ribbon, don't twist it or pull it as you will damage it.

hope this helps

My Compaq Presario v5000 laptop does not connect to the internet, I was told the Network Adapter needs replacing. Is this something I can do on my own or do I need to take it to a repair shop? Thanks.


In case it is the network adapter that needs to be replaced, you cannot do it yourself as in this laptop and most of the others, the network adapter is a part of the motherboard and cannot be replaced, it can be done only with proper hardware and techinicans, so you might need to send it to the repair shop to make sure that you do not mess up with it.

Please rate the solution.

Keyboard Keys Mismatch error


this could be caused by a couple of different issues:
1st Depending on the operating system you have loaded, it could have the wrong keyboard type or emulation selected.
2nd The keyboard or its cable could be bad, it will not necessarily quit until it goes completely out.

Could be a stuck key somewhere, has anything been wasted on the keypad, tap the keys one by one to refresh is. Could also be that the keyboard is broken.

Compaq presario v5000 - wireless button broke


The key on your keyboard is a shortcut to launch software.

Check near your clock on your taskbar or in control panel...if usung Windows wireless...if you are using 3rd party...then look in your program list to launch the program.

Good luck Sarah!
