    Can you enter Bios using the keyboard?

    If your keyboard works in Bios, your keyboard is fine, focus on your OS and drivers.

Lenovo Touch pad Stopped working


If you're positive you didn't unplug or rip anything while installing new USB ports, trying checking/updating or rolling back the drivers for the touch pad. Installing new USB ports could have mis-configured something and disabled or modified your drivers for the touch pad.

Turn on status indicator leds on acer 5735


You shouldn't be able to disable those via a keyboard shortcut. There is always the inevitable hardware failure, but you can test them simply by pressing the corresponding keys (if you haven't already). If your computer comes with software that manages the keyboard (some do), try launching it up and looking around for a viable enable method.

Need to replace keyboard in HP Pavilion dv6626us Entertainment Notebook PC. thanks


Hi,
Turn the computer off and close the computer lid.
Remove the battery and the AC power supply.

1st we need to remove the switch cover or keyboard bezel. This is plastic strip that runs above the keyboard.

Turn the computer upside down with the front panel towards you.
Remove the three Phillips screws that secure the switch cover to the computer.

Turn the computer display-side up with the front toward you.
Open the computer as far as possible.
Lift the rear edge of the switch cover and swing it forward until it rests on the keyboard.

Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector to which the LED board cable is connected and disconnect the cable from the LED board.
Remove the switch cover.

Now remove the panel directly above the battery compartment and remove the 2 keyboard screws there and another 2 screw in the battery compartment (they should me marked with icons of keyboards)

Turn the computer display-side up with the front panel towards you.
Open the computer as far as possible.
Lift the rear edge of the keyboard until it rests at an angle.
Slide the keyboard back to disengage the tabs on the front edge of the keyboard from the top cover.
Swing the keyboard forward until it rests on the palm rest.

Release the ZIF connector to which the keyboard cable is connected and disconnect the keyboard cable from the system board.

Remove the keyboard.

Just reverse the procedures to replace everything.

Good luck.

Hey I have an Compaq Evo n610c and the keys quit working is that a motherboard problem or what?


Probably just a loose connection.
Turn computer off,

take screw in middle of bottom of computer out,

turn back over and open computer and slide small bars between the function keys (eg esc and F1, F4 and F5, etc) down.

Tip the computer over and the keyboard should fall out. If it doesn't, gently pull down on a function key and it should come out. If it doesn't, check your work and confirm all 4 of the slide bars are down and the screw is all the way out of the bottom.

There are 2 connectors for the keyboard. One a thin cable and one a wide cable. You problem is the wide cable, for the keyboard. The other is for the trackpoint/touchpad.

You will see a point on the motherboard, close to the bottom of the keyboard where this wide cable connects to the motherboard.

Slide the connector on the motherboard up (there's a small tab on both sides of connector) and the cable will come free. The cable itself is just like a wide piece of ribbon.

Clean off the end with a piece of tissue and slide it into the connector as far as it will go, then push the tabs on the side down to connect the calbe to the motherboard.

Lay the keyboard back down and turn on computer to see if your problem is resolved.

If it is, turn computer back off and reconnect everything.

If it's not fixed, it could be your keyboard has gone bad (buy one on ebay for $25 and install) or you have a motherboard problem (unlikely).

If you search for service manual for a n610 you should be albe to find a PDF file with drawing illustrating the above.

Good luck...
