If you broke the connector, you have to get a new board. The connector is fastened to it.
If you opened up the case and can see the board, you generally have to remove all the stuff--connectors, modem, hard drive, CD, etc.
When you get everything unplugged, you will have to remove the screws and then lift the board out.
Pay attention to where the screws go--they are of different sizes.

I have the replacement keyboard for the gateway NV54 laptop. I need basic instructions on removing the old keyboard and unstalling the new keyboard. Can anybody help because Gateway can't help so far.


All them are pretty basically the same. Pull out power cord and battery... Remove the bezel piece top of the keyboard "the thing the power button sits in". When you remove it there should be 2 screws very tiny holding the keyboard down remove them. Under the keyboard there will be the power ribbon DO NOT JUST PULL IT OUT!! There will be like a brown/white clip that locks the ribbon to the board. The brown may be black or even blue that is the locking piece. Carefully lift the clip up and gently pull the ribbon out. If its stuck you have not unlocked it. Pull the old keyboard out and repeat the steps backwards.

Evon610c keyboard keys broken how to replace the keyboard ? how to open the case with out damage internal parts ??


Hi

this may help you i found it somewhere online

How to Replace the hp compaq evo n610c laptop keyboard Removing the Damaged Keyboard
Enusre the laptop is fully powered off, unplugged from the wall, and the battery taken out.
Turn the laptop over. On some models icons indicating which screws are attached to the keyboard are displayed. If not, you may have to eyeball it if you can't find a breakdown for your model online.
Remove those screws with a Phillips screwdriver.
Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
Remove the plastic pieces carefully with a toothpick or plastic pick if there is any in the way.
Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
Take that same pick and lift the plastic connectors that hold in this data cable in place.
Carefully remove the data cable. Now the whole keyboard should be free.

Replacing the 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.
Use the pick to push the plastic connectors back into place, and make sure it's holding the data cable in.
Slip the keyboard itself into place, from bottom to top. Make sure the screw holes or clamps line up at the top.
Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
Finally, put the battery back in and power on the laptop. If all has gone well, the keyboard should be functioning like brand new

hope this was helpful

Hi i have got a new keyboard and wish to change it on acer 7520

Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard Repair and ReplacementAre you considering laptop keyboard repair? You might think twice if you happen to be the lucky owner of a laptop, because replacing the keyboard rather than repairing it could be a lot less expensive. Laptop keyboard replacement on this particular model is very easy and takes just a few minutes. Here is a quick Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard repair tutorial with step-by-step instructions. Once you have purchased the new keyboard, all you need to replace the old with the new is a screwdriver and something plastic, flat and thin like a credit card or guitar pick.
Step one: Remove the two screws from the bottom of the computer that are holding down the Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard bezel. The bezel is the bar that sits right above all the function keys.
Step two: Turn the computer over, open the cover and insert the credit card or guitar pick between the bezel and the laptop screen. The bezel has pegs that sit in holes, you need to slowly pry up the bezel. It will make a bit of a popping noise as it is removed.
Step three: Now hold on to the laptop keyboard from the end closest to the screen and gently pull it away from the touch-pad end and flip it over. You will see the ribbon attached to the underside of the Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard. There is a little plastic connector holding the ribbon to the computer. To unlock it, carefully pull up on the two tabs; one located on each corner of the connector. Be very gentle when you do this as this is the one part that gets broken the most often when changing a keyboard. The ribbon cable will now be released.
Step four: Carefully pull the ribbon out of the connector and remove it along with the entire Acer laptop keyboard.
Final step: To insert the new Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard, place the board face down so you have easy access to the ribbon. Make sure the keyboard is lined up so when you flip it back over the keys are in the correct position. Keep the ribbon straight at all times; twisting it could damage it. Place the ribbon in the connector; it only goes in one way. Once in place, push down on the connector tabs to lock it. Now flip the keyboard over and slide it down toward the touch pad and take the bezel and line the pegs up with the holes and push it in place. Then turn the computer over and replace the two screws you removed from the bottom. You can now power on your computer and see if the Acer Aspire 7520G-502G25Mi Keyboard works. If it is not working, more than likely the ribbon was not inserted properly.
