Re: how do I remove the keyoard travelmate 2410

There are two screws that hold the keyboard in... looking at your laptop, you will see the panel (that the power button is on) that runs the full width of the laptop, left to right. The hinge covers may or may not be part of this panel as well... on some models, this panel may simply pop off... and on other models, you may need to remove a couple of screws from the bottom side for the panel to come off... remove the battery and check for screws under that as well that may be holding that panel on. Last place to check for screws will be at the back... look at the hinge covers to see if there are any screws on the backside.

By saying "panel", I am referring to the peice that sits between the keyboard and the bottom of the lcd. Sometimes the hinge covers are part of this, sometimes they are seperate. It's half black and half silver and has several buttons on it.

Be carefull removing this panel, as there may be a ribbon cable that connects it to the mainboard. So pop it off easy, don't yank it off. Check for any cable connections before pulling it too far. Just take it easy when disassembling.

Under that panel, will be two screws that hold the keyboard in place. Remove those and slowly pull the keyboard up. It too has a ribbon cable attatching it to the mainboard. So you don't want to pull too hard and rip it... where the cable plugs into the mainboard, it has a lock that you pull up on from both sides.... dont pull too hard or youll break the lock that holds the cable in... these things are sometimes delicate, so use caution and just take your time.

It's hard to explain without the use of pictures as a guide... but this should get you well started. If you have more questions, feel free to post a reply.

Travelmate 2410 keys not working

You don't need any drivers. Laptops and desktops use an internal win device driver. You can actually find the file called keyboard.sys

What you need in your case in a new keyboard. For your Travelmate they sell for about $50. It takes maybe 10 minutes to change it out. This is something you can do at home. Look on you tube for something like laptop keyboard replace and you can see the process and decide if it is something worth trying. If you google or bing or whatever for travelmate 2410 keyboard or laptop parts you can find several dozen sources. If you look they will have instructions or videos for your travelmate.
