Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS640W Notebook
How do you remove the data cable from inside the computer. There is a plasctic that seems to be holding it in place and I can't tell from looking at it how to replace it. Any help would be appreciated. It is a VGN-FS640 sony vaio.
That plastic piece is a retainer,gently pull up on both sides and you should get your ribbon cable out. pay close attention on how it came out.

Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case
and dvd drive slot for screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of
some of the device cases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it.
Those screws hold the keyboard in place.
Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but be careful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screws that hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gently lift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.
Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift the lcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and the lcd cable when you remove the lcd.
Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note of any cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift the palmrest off.
Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottom case, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.
A digital camera to take pictures will be most helpful to refresh you memory of where things were.

Hi there here's the steps on how to replace a laptop keyboard :)
Take the new keyboard out of the plastic, and slip the data cable back in between the plastic connectors on the system board. Make sure it's all the way in.
2.Use the pick to push the plastic connectors back into place, and make sure it's holding the data cable in.
3.Slip the keyboard itself into place, from bottom to top. Make sure the screw holes or clamps line up at the top.
4.Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
5.If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
6.Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
7.Finally, put the battery back in and power on the laptop. If all has gone well, the keyboard should be functioning like brand new.
