Prepare a new keyboard, you can find it via this website:

Turn the notebook over so that you are looking at the back. Pull the battery latch to the left to release the battery. Remove the battery from the notebook. Make sure that no cables are still plugged into the notebook.

Remove between three and six screws, depending on your model of HP Pavilion, in the cavity where the battery sits. Also remove any screws in the middle of the back of the notebook. Most notebooks will have a small keyboard icon next to the screws you need to take out, but if your screws are not marked, just take all the ones in the middle of the keyboard out. You won't hurt anything and can just put the screws back in later.

Turn the notebook over and open it up as far as it will go. Take your flat-head screwdriver and get it behind the switch cover. The switch cover is the piece of plastic between the keyboard and the hinge, running across the top of the keyboard. With your screwdriver behind the switch cover, press away on the screwdriver to pop the cover out of place. You can locate and unplug the cable that connects the switch cover to the motherboard, but it is unnecessary. Simply place the switch cover back above the keyboard, but shifted up about 1 inch.

Remove any screws that were hidden by the switch cover. If you had to remove several keyboard screws on the back side of the notebook, there might not be any screws here, but if you only had to remove one screw from the back, there can be up to three screws here.

Pull up on the back of the keyboard until you raise the keyboard to about 30 degrees. Then pull the keyboard toward the screen to release it from under the housing.

Tilt the keyboard up and find the cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard. Pull up on the connector, or if the connector has latches on its side then push back on the latches, and slide the cable out of the connector. Remove the keyboard from the Pavilion notebook.

Slide the cable of the replacement keyboard into the slot that you just removed the old cable from. Flip the lid of the slot closed, or push the latches in, to lock the cable in place. Put the bottom of the keyboard in place while keeping the keyboard tilted at about 30 degrees. Once the bottom of the keyboard is in, tilt the keyboard down and replace any screws that you had removed.

Push the switch cover back into place and push down to lock it. Turn the notebook over and replace any screws that you removed.

Look on the bottom of the computer. There should be two or three screws with a keybooard like icon next to them. Remove or loosen these screws.

Next, look at the top of the keyboard between the various "F" keys. There are usually four sliding latches that you need to push towards the front of the keyboard approximately 1/8" usiing a small flat bladed screwdriver.

Now, gently pry the keyboard out from near the latches. There will be resistance from some double stick tape on the bottom of the keyboard.

Finally, loosen the connector(s) for one or two ribbon cables. Gently pry the plastic top up and then remove the cable.

Re-assembly is the reverse.

SOURCE: How do I remove the screen? I don't see any

After you lift the screen you will see 3 or 4 smallrubber plugs at the top and 2 at the bottom, if you have fingernails they come out easily if not a small flat screwdriver. You will now see the screws now just gently work your way around the screen and it will just clip off........cheers from Scott

Generally the keyboard is removed first then you can tackle the LCD. I'm surprised you are replacing it as LCDs are expensive.

SOURCE: MY HP DV6 1030US will


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.

1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.

Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

How do I remove/replace the keyboard from a HP Pavillion dv7-2277cl

1. Remove 6 screws from the bottom of the case (as shown). These screws hold the accessory cover.

2. Remove one screw securing the CD/DVD drive. Slide the CD/DVD drive to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard. Remove the CD/DVD drive.

3. Remove all marked screws from the bottom of the notebook.
The yellow circled screws secure the keyboard cover, and the green one secures the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

4. Turn the computer display-side up and open it as far as possible. Insert a guitar pick or small flat screwdriver between the keyboard cover and case and slowly move along the side.

5. Lift the keyboard cover. Be careful, it's still connected to the motherboard. Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector and disconnect the cable from the LED board. Remove the keyboard cover.

6. Remove the four screws that secure the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

7. Lift the rear edge of the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard until it rests at an angle. Slide the keyboard back to disengage the tabs on the front edge of the keyboard from the top cover and rest it on the display.

8. Release the ZIF connector to which the keyboard cable is attached and disconnect the keyboard cable. Remove the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.
