How to disasssemble my keyboard?


There are no user serviceable parts inside. Use a plastic screwdriver or guitar plectrum to release the plastic clips around the edge where the top and bottom meet.

Fix for toshiba a105 and most toshiba laptop


1) like always with anything that you do when taking your computer apart, take out the battery and unplug it (common sense)
2) Remove the plastic cover piece above the keyboard, called the "keyboard bezel". this is the piece where you can see the speakers. This page gives several pictures as to how to do this. http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/remove-main...
**I found it a little bit difficult to get the plastic retaining clips to "pop" loose, but if you are careful, you can use a small screw driver and slowly "wiggle-pry" between the two screen mounts. this is done with the screen all the way back. you could use a paper clip with a little 1/8" bend at tip to do this also. (it is a tight working area) Once these three retaining clips have come loose the others are fairly easy to "pop" Just be patient and work it slowly. once this is bezel is off the rest is super easy.**
3) Remove the keyboard. Remove the two screws that are evident once the bezel has been removed. These hold the keyboard in place. Lift the keyboard up from the screw side and the retaining clips at the front of the keyboard will lift out. (there is no need to pry here). Once the keyboard is loose you will have to either leave it connected, just off to the side, or disconnect it from the mother board. The keyboard cable connector has a black clip along the top of it. just lift this clip up a little and the keyboard cable will slide out. (the keyboard cable does not have a fixed connector, but is just a ribbon that is held in place by the black clip along the top of the keyboard cable connector) Once you have removed it you will better understand what I mean.
4) Remove the wireless card. It is the only card visible at this point. It is connected by metal spring clips. just unclip in a similar fashion as removing ram. You do not need to disconnect the wires connected to card, just move card over to expose area below card.
5) This is where the magic is... you will see C88 clearly labeled right next the jack that the wireless card plugs into. There are two little solder squares (approx 1/16") at this location. *** At this point plug the power adapter to your computer again. ***
You will have to jump the two solder squares at label C88. I used a paper clip to do this. I used pliers to bend a 1/8" long "L" and then "scuffed" up the paperclip with the teeth of the pliers. (my first try at this did not work because the paperclip had a varnish coating on it and did not adequately conduct electricity.) Once you have your paperclip set up (or the one you used to pry the bezel with) hold it in place on these two solder contact squares and press the power button to boot your computer.
6) Your computer should boot right up and bypass the bios password, which is now reset/ erased. (You might see the Windows Error startup screen that gives you different options of start up to choose. If you disconnected your keyboard, just wait for screen to time-out and it will continue on its own) Once you have booted into windows use your mouse pad to shutdown, via start-shutdown method.
7) Disconnect your power. Reinstall your wireless card and keyboard (with screws). Don't reinstall keyboard bezel at this time. Once everything (but bezel) is reinstalled, restart the computer with battery and AC adapter connected. This should boot right into your computer without any trouble. (if for some reason it does not boot up correctly and asks for the bios password again you will be glad you left the bezel off. just redo the steps again.)

Need to Remove Large Mirror in bathroom. Six feet in length. Unable to see how attached. Clips are visible.


The clips won't be your greatest problem, where to find 2 or 3 man in the same time. (Just joking)
Please try to press one of the top clips up. If it works. press it back and try the other ones. If it works, you can lift (with the strong man) the mirror up. If there are clips on the side, try the same to find out what side the clips can move. One at the time and move the clip back before trying another one.

Success.

The M button on the keyboard stoped working(I've done this with copy-paste). All other buttons functioning properly. I restarted the computer but no results. Is it virus or technical problem? How do I open...


This is most likely a bad button on your keyboard. You can get a new keyboard for about $13 on ebay, including shipping. just run a search for inspiron 1521 keyboard.

to replace it, you need to remove the bezel above the keyboard. I dont remember for your particular model if you have to remove screws for this, but im fairly certain you dont. It should just be secured with clips, so you can pull it out, from the right side first working your way to the left. If it hangs in any spot check under the battery to make sure there are no screws to remove. Once the bezel is removed you will see 2 or 3 screws holding the keyboard in. Remove these and lift the keyboard up from the back. Then pull it toward the screen to undo the bottom clips. THere will be a ribbon cable from the keyboard to the motherboard. There is a clip you lift up where it plugs in to the board. Then the cable will just lift out. Then you just put the new one in, following my directions backwards :D It will actually be pretty obvious once you are this far.

Touchpad pointer moves by itself. Moves slowly to either the top right hand corner or the bottom left hand corner.


Sounds like their might be some dirt underneath the surface of the trackpad exerting pressure causing it to move. Try turning down the sensitivity, do this under mouse in Control Panel.

How to remove and replace the keyboard in my acer aspire 5535 laptop


This is a tricky operation, requiring a degree of experience.

The bezel between the top has to be removed. Open the cover all the way, so it's in line with the base. Then GENTLY pry the bezel by lifting first one side then the other; carefully loosen the four tabs under the keyboard. remove and save the two screws holding the keyboard down; move the keyboard slightly towards the display, and lift from the rear (spacebar side). There is a flat cable attaching the keyboard to the motherboard, held in by a "white-ish" clip. Gently loosen one side, and the keyboard will be free of the unit.

NOTE: this cable has to be PRECISELY positioned by this clip, or your new keyboard won't work correctly. DO NOT reassemble until you have tested the unit!

Replace keyboard on Y510


OK, Here is the official Lenovo Service Manual for every component on the Y510.

http://consumerdl.lenovo.com.cn/UserFiles/UserGuide/en/User%27s%20guides%20and%20manuals/Y450/Lenovo%20IdeaPad%20Y450%20Hardware%20Maintenance%20Manual%20v2.0.pdf

However, removing the panel above the keyboard is not as simple as just removing the 4 screws located in the battery compartment and the three along the back edge on the bottom. Yes there are some "L" brackets on either end that are a pain to get to let go, but I found that by removing the DVD drive and removing the screw in the bay edge closest to the top panel, it helped loosen things to remove the top bezel. You may have to use a small flat blade screwdriver to pry the front edge up by the PF keys. Be careful removing the top bezel though, there are two small electrical ribbons attached to it for the volume and other controls. Once you have the top bezel ose, you simply have to lift the top edge of the keyboard and release the connector ribbon by flipping up the front edge of the connector. the manual illustrates this. Then it's just a matter of reversing the order. Reassembly is must easier and faster than disassembley.
