    I gave up and got the port replicator back. Finding drivers for the com port and an old keyboard was next to impossible without knowing exactly where to look for them. The bulk of the drivers I could find on the net were for newer PCs, newer keyboards or different equipment entirely. I guess it's all about selling new equipment and nobody cares about making laptops compatible with old peripheral devices. Without a PS2 port on the back, you either have to buy the port replicator or a USB or wireless keyboard. FYI, the original question was posted at

Sorry I did post but I'm sure you were already in bed. I was doing some reformatting and that takes a while.

The keyboard latch on my Studio 1555 snapped in half. What can I do?

Ellen, Ellen, Ellen,...............if I've told you once, I've told you..........


Where am I?



This = Not good.
Most of the time you are looking at motherboard replacement.
However I have read a few 'tricks', and believe this may help you,

We're talking STICKY tape here. Not Christmas wrapping present tape.
More like the stuff the Post Office uses.

The kind that NEVER comes off! (Or so it seems, lol!)

What is sata?

SATA is Serial ATA.

The version before it is PATA. Parallel ATA.
Also known as IDE, or EIDE.



The bandwidth of using a Parallel interface became limited.
The Serial interface of SATA was brought out for more bandwidth.

I hae a compaq 9010 laptop and the on off button has come unclipped from under the keyboard. anyone kow how to lift the keyboard up.

Above the Keyboard, and directly under the LCD screen is the Keyboard Cover. This cover contains the various LED lights, and Power On button.

1) ALL power to the laptop is removed. The AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Two Philips head screws are removed from the back of the laptop, which fasten the hinge cover portion of the Keyboard Cover to the laptop.

3) A thin flat-bladed screwdriver is used to gently pop the Keyboard Cover up.

On the Right and Left sides of the Keyboard Cover, and also the middle, (Side towards the Keyboard), a small flat-tipped screwdriver is used to gently pry the Keyboard Cover up.

Use care so as to not damage the plastics, nor the wireless antenna.
