Question about Microsoft Compaq Presario C501nr Notebook
The "N" key broke off of my keyboard. I recently purchased a replacement keyboard but I do not know how to remove the old keyboard.
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.
