The power button on these laptops is easily depressed underneath the power button strip especially when the switch becomes dirty, the screen doesn't light up, and the user gets frustrated. When I find a depressed button, I take the keyboard off by removing the 2 13mm screws with the keyboard emblem from the bottom and moving the 4 tiny plates between the esc-F1, F4-F5, F8-F9, & F12-delete keys. The power strip is then removed by gently prying up near the CPU and pulling it up and toward the front of the laptop. You can then either repair or replace the button or strip. I small drop of contact cleaner down into the switch will help it function reliably. Even a small drop of rubbing alcohol will sometimes work but contact cleaner is the best.
yes, all laptop keyboards can be replaced. do you have the manual for the laptop? it shows you have to remove it and take it apart. or you can download the manual from their website. you can buy a used keyboard from ebay. I don't think they are thay expensive.
