This just happened to me with a black Compaq keyboard. There are two additional screws hidden under the rubber pads. You'll have to remove the pads (use a screwdriver or your nails) to get access to those screws, and then when you're done put the pads back in place (they are sticky on the inside, so I guess they'll glue back to the keyboard and not fall).

As per the service manual available here on the HP Website is only necessary to remove the switch cover to access the keyboard screws. The switch cover is secured by to screws located in the battery compartment. The keyboard screws are located on the top of the system under the switch cover.

I have a hp-compaq presario c300 and i forgot my power- on password. i need help! or need backdoor password in order to fix. please!


NEVER install a power on password without making a note somewhere as to that password is - there is no fix appart from replace the m/board as the POPW is within the cmos chipset - there is a rest button on the m/board but I do not think it will clear this problem. It is located under the top cover just below the mouse input port - requires removing the top cover - screen keyboard ect.

How do you get underneath the keyboard


You don't need to remove the keyboard to access the ram. Just undo the single crosshead screw on the removable cover in the middle of the laptop from beneath. I you do ever need to remove the keyboard there are 2 screws underneath this cover, which are marked with a keyboard symbol. Undo these and then slide the 4 small lugs at the top of the keyboard and it will lift up

Hi there.
With all HP laptops the keyboard screws should be clearly marked, look close under the laptop for 2 icons that look like a keyboard, that should be them, just unscrew them and the keyboard should come away.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

HP Compaq nx9010 CD drive replacement


You are correct.
The screws for the dvd drive is under the keyboard.
there should be 2 tabs one above the f4 and the other above f12 take a regular head screw driver put it where those tabs are and gently pull down towards the touchpad and the keyboard should come up easily.
Now under that keyboard in the center you will see a opening and inside that opening you will see 1 philip head screw remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Right below where you removed that screw you will see another opening which has another philps head screw in it.
Remove that screw counter clockwise and the dvd rom should pull straight out with ease.
To put it back together just reverse the steps.
If you need further assistance do not hesitate to ask.

Need to remove my keyboard on Compaq Presario C501nr.


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.  
Install new keyboard in reverse order

I don't think any screws come out of that laptop to get the keyboard out. Look at the very top edge of the keyboard for some release tabs, they are small, to release the keyboard.

How to disassemble a pantech c300


I used a micro screw driver set that can be purchased at Home Depot. There are two hidden screws: one on the top piece where the display is and one on the bottom piece where the keyboard is. The hidden screw on the top piece is under a silver rubber circle at center bottom of piece. The hidden screw on the bottom piece is under a silver rubber water drop shape located by the antena. These rubber covers can be removed by wedging them out with a mirco flat screw driver or pin.


Good luck...
