How do i remove the keyboard

I want to remove the keyboard on my Presario R3000, Do I have to take the mother board etc out? or is there an easy way to do this? I am trying to access the memory module on the mother board but can't get the mother board out. Looks like the keyboard must come out but i can't see how.

I have a toshiba satellite A55-S1064. the keyboard doesn't work, only th space bar and "y" buttons work. what ca i do. do i need to replace it? if so, how do i remove the keyboard?

Re: How do i remove the keyboard

Usually you can remove the panel right above the keyboard, this will allow you to access the keyboard screws. The keyboard should swing up allowing you to unplug and remove it.

All kinds

It's the power connector on the motherboard, and the more you wiggle the connector on the cord to make contact, the more you damage the motherboard (from the sparks and heat).

There are a number of sites on the web that offer to fix that problem (it's probably the worst part of the design of any laptop) for prices ranging from around $75 to $200 - try this search to find someone you feel is competent:

Removal of laptop keyboard

Dear ctmom

Please find below the link to download the

HP Pavilion zx5000 Notebook PC, HP Pavilion zv5000 Notebook PC, Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook PC, HP Compaq nx9100 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

( )

Removing the keyboard firstly requires the removal of the top plastic strip in order to gain access with the screwdriver to the four screws. To remove it follow the instructions at pages 137 & 138 and you are almost there.

Then on page 139&140 you will find the information to remove the keyboard. It explains all the information very analytically. You are simply unscrewing the four screws on the top side. On the bottom it is simply slided.

TIP: Be careful when you are releasing the keyboard up towards you. The flexi cable that is connected to the motherboard is quite short-fragile and does not have a lot of space to move so go slow until you have released the connector’s tabs and the cable is loose to be removed.

Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work in the laptop.

You'll have to remove the mother board to fix this. Basically, remove the keyboard & touchpad. You will see the mother board at that time. Remove whatever else is necessary to get down to the mother board. Hint! Keep track of what screw comes out of what hole. You'll need to know that for reassembly.
