Question about Gateway MT3422 RTL Notebook
How do you remove keyboard from a Medion MD 96290 laptop
I have removed all screws from the base but still can not remove keyboard
can any one help
It a bit tricky this one....none of the screws actually holds the keyboard in....you'll need to remove the plate over the power buttons...this is held in by pressure clips...ie it snaps into/out of place....to do this I eased up the plate by gently prying the hinged brackets up and prying the facia off....be careful its only thin plastic......once you've done that the keyboard is ready to slide up towards the hinge brackets....its a bit tight so be careful but its only held onto the board by the data cable.....reverse procedure to fit new one...

Follow the previous advice (very accurate).
The keyboard has sticky pads on the bottom of it. This makes it a little bit difficult to remove.
The keyboard connection has a little slider on the motherboard slip (don't pull out completly) this out very gently this helps with removing the keyboard cable and inserting the new one.
The keyboard code for the MD9620 is MP-03266GB-442A.
I tried Medion and they wanted £105 plus parts, they would not sell me just the keyboard.
John @ www.notebookrepair.co.uk says he can get me one within about a week so I've ordered one.
Given the part number a Toshiba Equium L20 keyboard may work (looks very similar - slightly different key markings - part number for this is MP-03266GB-920).
If you bust the plastic facia, there are a few people selling this on ebay (may help with removing having a look)
I would suggest putting a finger nail between the silver and black plastic at the back of the laptop hinge. Then use a wide'ish but thin flat screw-driver to lift both sides. You will need to lift the plastic along the top of the keyboard as well. Do this carefully. There are however quite a number of catches. The extreme left and right are easier to lift out if you have lossened all the other catches off then pull gently away from the keyboard at a shallow angle as the catches for these sides sit under the silver section.
NOTE: Make sure you have removed the battery and power cord before you start doing any of this as the motherboard is likly to have voltage if you don't. Also beware of static.

Why not source the keyboard direct from Germany! I did and the service wasw excellant. The kb slotted right in.
I went on the German ebay site, paid by paypal = 39 euros all in!
