How to Install Compaq Laptop Keyboard


Compaq laptop keyboards have a variety of sizes and configurations to fit the design of the laptop itself like smaller laptops or larger laptops with full-size keys. You might now find that the keyboard or keypad exhibits problems such as sticking keys or general unresponsiveness from your owning Compaq Presario laptop because of several years'using. Besides, you have made sure that your old keyboad is clean but it still doesn't work well. Then you have to install a new one. So how to do it? Don't worry, you can DIY your Compaq new keyboard via this guide.
Step1. Exit Windows and turn off your computer.
Step2. Unplug the power cord and modem and network cables.
Step3. Place your laptop on a clean and disconnect the old keyboard. Open your laptop screen as far as you can.
If you are installing a USB keyboard, connect the keyboard to a USB port on the back of your computer.
Step4. Use the flathead screwdriver to pop open the hinge cover. Slowly and carefully pry it open from the right side to the left side, exposing the keyboard screws. Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that hold the Compaq Keyboard in place.
Note: Keep these screws in a safe place.
Step5. Gently tug the Compaq Keyboard component toward your laptop display. You are trying to pull it out of the slot that is located near the palm rest and mouse pad. It doesn't take much force, but you must be firm. Once you have pulled it out of the slot, you can lift it up and remove it from your laptop.
Step6. Take the replacement keyboard and slide it into the slot. Once in place, screw it into place with the Phillips screwdriver and the screws you removed in Step 2. Fit the hinge cover back into place by snapping it in from left to right.
Step7. Connect the power on your laptop and verify that the new Compaq Keyboard is working.
OK, well done! Compaq keyboards are inexpensive, easy to find and quick to install. Actually, all Compaq Presario laptops have reasonable prices and you don’t have to worry if something breaks down as replacements are easy to find and cheap to buy from Papatek. Papatek Compaq Laptop Keyboard are specifically designed for each Compaq laptop brand and model.

I went to replace the memory on my compaq presario x1000 laptop and when I opened the back panel for the memory, I only see one chip. How do I get to the other chip to replace it?


Remove the 2 screws under the laptop that are marked keyboard. There are 4 clips across the top of the keyboard. Slide these toward the bottom of the keyboard and remove the keyboard. You can now access the second socket.

The backspace key on my Compaq laptop keyboard has stopped working


Your keyboard is actually one big circuit board and the keys touch small pads under them and over time these can fail or the sensor feeding the panel under the keys can fail. Open up a word program and test each and every key on the board. If the back key is the only one then it is most likely just a failure of that key and for the time being you can use the left arrow to back up...but you will need to replace the keyboard. I believe these are non serviceable pieces and should be replaced as a whole. I'll include a link below for the service manual for that model Compaq. Just copy and paste the guide to your internet browser address bar and hit enter. File is aPDF file and will need acrobat reader of foxit reader to open. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

I have a compaq Presario C500 laptop and I need to replace the keyboard. Do you have any ideas on how to do this?


Hello,
The first thing you should do (if you are willing to take your laptop apart) is hunt for a good deal on a replacement keyboard. I was able to find one for ~17$ USD by using Google's shopping search:

http://www.google.com/products?q=compaq+C500+replacement+keyboard&oe=UTF-8&scoring=p

After you receive the keyboard, you could attempt to replace the old yourself using instructions found on the internet, but I was unable to find them. If and when I need to replace my keyboard, I would begin removing screws and try to figure out how to remove the keyboard while being as gentle as possible. Once you get your laptop taken apart, (I have opened a few up previously) the keyboard is usually connected to the motherboard by way of a thin ribbon-like connection which can be unclipped and slipped out of the connectors. The keyboard can then be swapped out with a new one.

I wish I could find some instructions for you, Compaq's site used to be so informative, but now I can't even get disassembly instructions. If you don't feel comfortable with ripping your laptop apart, you could try FixYa's repair directory to find a fair price for a repair:

You could skip all this and contact Compaq about replacing the keyboard, but that seems like an expensive solution to me.

I'm upgrading Ram Compaq R3200 laptop


Found my solution. Was under keyboard. Required opening laptop as far as possible, removing 3 screws from the back that hold the piece of plastic just above the keyboard. With flathead screwdriver lift the right corner of the plastic piece then, with the same screwdriver lift the top center of the plastic piece to remove the piece entirely. Unscrew the 4 screws that hold the keyboard (across the top) and lay they keyboard forward (toward you). THERE is the Ram.
