The first step to replacing your laptop keyboard is to remove the screws from the back of your vaio vgn-fe880e/h. Sometimes your laptop will have a picture of a keyboard next to the screws that need to be removed. Otherwise, see your laptop manual for details.
Above the laptop keyboard for sony vaio vgn-fe880e/h, you have a cover panel. If required, remove this part to easily access your keyboard. If you have screws above your keyboard, remove those screws.
Now that you have removed all the screws, you are ready to remove and then replace your new laptop keyboard.
To remove the vaio vgn-fe880e/h Keyboard, take a thin object and pry the keyboard out between the keyboard and motherboard. Be careful when removing the keyboard.

personnally I would not try this. If this is the only laptop you have. now if its just a machine you tinker with you can try it. but for functunality I would leave the keyboard intact incase you ever want to use the portability of the laptop.
You can find the description about replacing the keyboard here. Don't forget to unplug your laptop form the power and to remove the battery before you start. You also have to take the hinges off.(How-to is here.)
Be very careful when you take the keyboard off, so you do not damage the very delicate connection cable! Remove the keyboard connection plug GENTLY!
Try to unplug and plug back in the keyboard connector ribbon onto the motherboard. Consult the laptop manual if that voids your warranty or not before trying, also look at the documentation on how to dissemble your laptop, it shouldn't be too hard. here's the instructions on how to do it
if u r using the connector make sure none of the pins are not bent if u r not make sure the bios settings are correct if this does not work either it must be the battery needs replacing.(the keyboard uses a battery read the manual)
