Close the laptop and flip it upside down on a table. There will be 3-4 screws on the bottom with a rectangular icon embossed next to them that looks something like a keyboard. Remove these screws.

Flip the computer back right side up and open the display as far as it will go. Look at the top of the keyboard and see if there are four small plastic sliders between keys on the top row of keys. Most models have these, but not all. If you do have them, use a small flat bladed screwdriver to slide them towards you appoximately 1/8 inch.

Finally, gently pry under the top of the keyboard(where the F keys are) to pivot the keyboard out of the computer. With some models there is double sided tape under the keyboard so there may be some resistance. However, don't force it to hard or you will break it if you missed a screw. With a few models, there will be 1 or 2 screws hidden under access panels, i.e. memory, hard drive, etc. so be careful of this. If it doesn't come off relatively easy, search for more screws on the back.

Finally, you need to remove the cable from the motherboard. There is a plastic compression connector for this that you will need to gently pry out with a small flat bladed screwdriver. This will release the tension on the cable and it can easily be pulled out afterwards. If you try to pull it out before releasing this you will almost certainly damaged the cable.

The palm rest is part of the top cover assembly. You will have to remove a lot of the guts of the laptop to get this out. Here is a link to the service manual where you can find some good drawings and the proper procedure:

It also describes keyboard removal but there are a few steps not covered very well which is why I added the above paragraphs.

Bodyglove samsung galaxy tab3 bluetooth keyboard does not work.the lights are on.The tab recognises the pairing & connects via bluetooth,however,I cannot type. Is there a way to "restart" the keyboard


I believe that you need to set the deafult keyboard on your device sertings. As you know your device keyboard is set to google or samsung keyboard. Unpair the device with the keyboard and re -pair them again, once they are paired go to device settings, language and data tap default keyboard and select bluetooth keyboard and set it as default.
Hope this helps.

Good luck.

There is a latch that you need to pull to seperate the keyboard base from the slate tablet pc. This latch is located behind the monitor where the keyboard attaches to the monitor.

You will, at the very least, need to have the screen and screen cover replaced. If the hinges also damaged the bottom case to which they are attached, then it too will need replacing.

If you can't get it repaired locally, let me know.

My keyboard broke and since I can it take it off, id like to know where I can buy a replacement I don't want a regular keyboard, I want the same one that came with the computer. help?


You can't buy a new keyboard ecause they stopped making it since 2005 but you can buy an old one. I think the best place to buy it is ebay, you can get one for quite cheap.

It could also be the logic board. Usually, there are weep / drainage holes in the bottom of the laptop. See if there's any traces of moisture there, and you'll know if it got wet or not.

Sounds like it could have been wet. You could try replacing the keyboard.

Could be a bad driver or a damaged palmrest.
Try to reinstall the touchpad driver.
Go here and click 'synaptics touchpad'. Go through the process and restart when prompted.
If it still doesn't work, it could be a damaged palmrest. Call HP at 800-474-6836 to see if your warranty covers the replacement. Otherwise, they can further diagnose the issue and refer you to service centers for parts replacement.

TC1100 keyboard replacement info


If you are replacing the keyboard component (i.e. the actual keyboard) the process is straightforward. You will need jeweller screwdrivers as the srew (torque and philips are quite small):
1. remove all outside screws on the back of the keyboard
2. as per wkuk above you (thanks!) you will see 4 small covers
3. Pop the covers off with a pin they are lightly glued on
4. Remove the 4 screws (philips head)
5. Turn the keyboard so the keys face the table
6. Separate the case exposing the back of the keyboard
7. There are two screws that need to be removed that hold the keyboard in
8. Remove the tape that holds down the ribbon cables
9. Two ribbon cables attach the the keyboard. Be VERY careful and disconnext the slim one from the existing keyboard. Disconnect the second cable from the keyboard body (as the kew keyboard will plug in there.
10. Remove the keyboard and replace with the new keyboard
11. Reverse the steps above.

The real key is to be careful with the cables. Hold the entire cable firmly as these types of connectors can tear. When you initially slowly remove the cables you will gain some idea of how far the cable goes into the connectors. Although I've done lots of fixes on hardware this was my first time doing my keyboard for my TC1100 and the start to finish was 15-20 minutes. If in doubt, take a phot of the keyboard after you've removed the keyboard.

Cheers,

David
