You need to download the maintenance guide for your laptop from the following URL. It will provide step by step instructions on how to take apart the laptop to reach the fan. You will also need some Torx screwdrivers, which can be bought from a hardware store. You also need to keep track of which screws go where. I label a piece of paper with the screw location and then use transparent package tape to tape the screws to the paper. Be careful about the ribbon that connects the keyboard to the computer. Don't try to remove the connector, just loosen the connector so the ribbons can slide out.

Some of my keys on the keyboard don't want to work and I was told I need to replace it. But how do I remove my current keyboard on my Compaq Presario 2100 laptop?

You need to unscrew some of the screws on the bottom of your laptop. They may be under your battery, or under little rubber covers. It is likely but not gauranteed that the right screws will have little keyboard icons next to them, if not, guess, and then try to remove the keyboard, if it doesn't come off, remove another screw...etc.

Finally, when it comes off, there will be a bus (group of wires) connecting it to the motherboard. Wiggle the bus slowly and gently out of the port on the motherboard, and then wiggle the new bus of the new keyboard into the port and screw the new keyboard in.

The drivers should be installed automatically, and it should work right away.

I hear the sound from dell touhpad i 'd like to stop this sound

The sound is probably a fan that is damaged or bent (from heat) and it is making a whirring or screaming noise. You will need to replace this before it damages the system. The system depends on the fan so that it can stay cool. An overheated system will destroy the hard drive, motherboard and any other components around it over time.


Purchase a can of air and blow it inside the air vents of the laptop. This will remove any dust that has gathered.

Touch the bottom of the laptop to see if it is extremely hot. If it is, then the overheating has already begun.

Changing the fan out can be overwhelming because you have to open the laptop up. There are you tube videos and picture, step by step instructions on-line.

The fan cost less that $5.00

Loud vibrating fan

This could be a fan with worn or loose bearing, could also have loose mounting screws. Check the fan and heatsink assembly, mounting screws, replace the fan if necessary and clean and remove the dust from the heatsink and vents.
