Re: replacement of keyboard on a hp ze 5000 laptop
I got it fixed, There are 2 small screws on the back of the two hinges that fold the display monitor open and closed.
Remove the two screws ,and then with a small screwdriver gentley pry up the hinges. Then pry up the metal grill that sits at the top of the keyboard, (the hinges are part of the metal grill) it has clips that will pry up with the grill.
Remove the 4 screws at the top of the keyboard, this will allow the keyboard to lift up and slide it off the bottom tabs.
Pry up the white clip that hold the ribbon connection and the ribbon will pull right out.
Put the ribbon back in and push down the white clip to secure it.
Replace the 4 screws and reassembly the grill

Here is a simple guide.
Before undertaking this operation, check the make, model and size of your laptop. Use this site to find your make and model and also check prices. Call them if you need to or email mail them for advice on your make and model of your laptop.
Frankly, it should take you less than 30mins to replace a screen.
Check the mounting screws on the cd burner,yes you have to remove the keyboard and speakers,and check the two visible mounting scews.....I rescently bought a used presario and discovered the yo-yo didn't mount the cd rom properly(no screws)...The screen you saw flashed is the BIOS,also check fitment of all plug in type accessories......
Found my solution. Was under keyboard. Required opening laptop as far as possible, removing 3 screws from the back that hold the piece of plastic just above the keyboard. With flathead screwdriver lift the right corner of the plastic piece then, with the same screwdriver lift the top center of the plastic piece to remove the piece entirely. Unscrew the 4 screws that hold the keyboard (across the top) and lay they keyboard forward (toward you). THERE is the Ram.
take the side panel off the case. remove the power supply cable (4 pin molex) Remove the data cable (flat cable) you might need to snap off the front cover. remove the screws that hold the cd in the tower.
I have not worked on your model before but have done many laptops.
be sure the part you have is correct.
get some small screwdrivers,
as you disassemble it, lay the screw around it where they came out.
some times case screw are hidden under stickers on the bottom. (nice hu?)
be VERY careful with the data/ribbon cable (probably dark gold in color)
