Re: Keyboard removal

Generally, keyboards are the easiest thing to replace on a laptop except for memory.
Usually, there are either screws on the back that have little keyboard symbols next to them. If that is not the case, then you need to find a way to remove the little panel that is directly above the keyboard as the screws are probably under there.
Just a heads-up, doing any of this will void your warranty if you are still under it.

I have a presario cq56-115dx, I took the keyboard off and then put it back in, now only a few keys are working, what could be the problem?

I would check to see that the ribbon cable for the keyboard is properly seated in its ZIF receptacle, and that the cable wasn't inadvertantly damaged during the remove and re-install process.

Erratic Keyboard typing on laptop

If you are getting erratic keyboard typing (unexpected cursor positioning), verify keyboard driver is up to date. If it is current, remove the keyboard from the laptop (see other sites for directions, but should be easy). Once removed, clean the ribbon contacts using q-tip and isopropyl alcohol. Dry with clean q_tip and reinstall. This may solve the problem without having to purchase new keyboard

In compaq laptop in that all the key r working proper but only MNLK is not working. insted of 0123 is coming plz help me

It is possible that the shift key is shorted or there is fault on the keyboard track. If you look closer to the keypad button there is a shift key for using the M or shift to using 0. So this section could have faulted. It is ideal to remove the keyboard, remove all screws on the back board and remove and clean the pads. If not the keyboard is faulty in the tracks or the circuit.

Some of my keys on the keyboard don't want to work and I was told I need to replace it. But how do I remove my current keyboard on my Compaq Presario 2100 laptop?

You need to unscrew some of the screws on the bottom of your laptop. They may be under your battery, or under little rubber covers. It is likely but not gauranteed that the right screws will have little keyboard icons next to them, if not, guess, and then try to remove the keyboard, if it doesn't come off, remove another screw...etc.

Finally, when it comes off, there will be a bus (group of wires) connecting it to the motherboard. Wiggle the bus slowly and gently out of the port on the motherboard, and then wiggle the new bus of the new keyboard into the port and screw the new keyboard in.

The drivers should be installed automatically, and it should work right away.

Cannot get to lower case and some keys not typing

Well, you can take a keyboard apart and clean every key with alcohol and a q-tip. just be careful not to lose any of the springs, it probably has some sticky drink spilled in it. Or you can pick up a cheap keyboard at a thrift shop, about $1 to $2.
