Remove battery.  Notice 5 phillips head screws labeled M2.5X4.  Of the 5, 2 have arrows pointing to them.  These 2 screws hold down the cover plate above the top of the keyboard, the one that has the 5 buttons for (left to right) WiFi, Power, Vol down, Vol up, and Mute.  Carefully pry up the cover after the 2 previously mentioned screws are removed.  You will see 4 screws at the top of the keyboard.  Remove these screws and gently lift up and slide up the keyboard.  Once the tabs at the bottom of the keyboard are clear, look to where the ribbon cable from the keyboard attaches to the socket on the motherboard.  Gently slide the very small tabs on the socket outward.  They only move about 1/16".  The ribbon cable should be free and you should be able to remove the keyboard assembly completely.

Overheating on Compaq Presario Notebook Model C501NR


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Compaq presario cq60 keyboard


Hi,
If the problem is intermittent then the problem could just be foreign objects like crumbs and hair that's trapped under the keys.

Turn the laptop off and stand it on it's side with the lid open. Get a soft, dry paintbrush and brush the keys, gently tap the keyboard in various places with the back of the paintbrush to help dislodge anything that's trapped.

Once your satisfied all the keys are clear turn the laptop on and see if it has made any difference.

If it has not then you may need to replace the keyboard.

Good luck.

you may have damaged the computer if it fell as you say. As for installing windows Xp that should not be a problem did you download driver first and burn a CD. If not get on another computer and donwload driver for your laptop burn them on a CD then install your drivers for XP that way you have the right drivers and it should work if not damaged inthe fall.
Good Luck.

How to take apart the case of a Compaq Presario C501NR Notebook PC so i can see the motherboard?


Hello,

According to HP, the C500 guide isn't readily available but you can use the C300 manual listed here http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00753552.pdf

You will need to start with the Removal and Replacement Procedure section.

Thanks
