How to Install Compaq Laptop Keyboard

Compaq laptop keyboards have a variety of sizes and configurations to fit the design of the laptop itself like smaller laptops or larger laptops with full-size keys. You might now find that the keyboard or keypad exhibits problems such as sticking keys or general unresponsiveness from your owning Compaq Presario laptop because of several years'using. Besides, you have made sure that your old keyboad is clean but it still doesn't work well. Then you have to install a new one. So how to do it? Don't worry, you can DIY your Compaq new keyboard via this guide.
Step1. Exit Windows and turn off your computer.
Step2. Unplug the power cord and modem and network cables.
Step3. Place your laptop on a clean and disconnect the old keyboard. Open your laptop screen as far as you can.
If you are installing a USB keyboard, connect the keyboard to a USB port on the back of your computer.
Step4. Use the flathead screwdriver to pop open the hinge cover. Slowly and carefully pry it open from the right side to the left side, exposing the keyboard screws. Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that hold the Compaq Keyboard in place.
Note: Keep these screws in a safe place.
Step5. Gently tug the Compaq Keyboard component toward your laptop display. You are trying to pull it out of the slot that is located near the palm rest and mouse pad. It doesn't take much force, but you must be firm. Once you have pulled it out of the slot, you can lift it up and remove it from your laptop.
Step6. Take the replacement keyboard and slide it into the slot. Once in place, screw it into place with the Phillips screwdriver and the screws you removed in Step 2. Fit the hinge cover back into place by snapping it in from left to right.
Step7. Connect the power on your laptop and verify that the new Compaq Keyboard is working.
OK, well done! Compaq keyboards are inexpensive, easy to find and quick to install. Actually, all Compaq Presario laptops have reasonable prices and you don’t have to worry if something breaks down as replacements are easy to find and cheap to buy from Papatek. Papatek Compaq Laptop Keyboard are specifically designed for each Compaq laptop brand and model.

To remove the Keyboard you'll need a flat head screw driver, there are 3 levers that holds the keyboard inplace. look closer they are above the following keys "Pause break" "F8" and "F2" (tips: remove the one in the middle "F8" first it makes life a lot easier) use the flat head screw driver and put the lever upward towards the screen and the key board should pop up

Start from the top and start peeling off the keyboard, there might be a little bit of tape sticking to the keyboard so becareful, watch out for the cable that is connecting the keyboard and the board, carefully remove the cable and the keyboard should come right off.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Not booting up

The OS doesn't like all the changes that were made. To keep people from cloning hard drives and putting them in whatever machine they want, microsoft winxp recognizes even subtle changes, upgraded cpu, memory video cards etc.

  1. put the hard drive in the old machine
  2. run link
  3. Software
  4. click on Installed Program
  5. click on licenses
  6. .click on report
  7. quick report licenses html
  8. click on print
  9. select page 1
These are the key codes for your machine,
now put hard drive in new machine, boot with xp pro cd and choose repair option. re-enter key code when prompted and telephone Microsoft in activation wizard.

I bought a refurb EX110 from a year ago... Everything worked fine for a year (XPx32), but now the home keys (sans G and H) do not work: ASDFJKL;

New SetPoint software, batteries, blew out with 100PSI of air, tried on several PCs -- all the same results.

These are just poorly made keyboards. They have fine ergonomics, but the soft components just don't stand the test of time.

They carry a 5 year limited Logitech warranty (when purchased new w/ proof of purchase), so instead of jacking around with them I'd just goto and initiate an RMA.

As for me, I've started the process, but don't know if they'll take back my 2 year old keyboard that I spent $25 for from a discount site...
