Some of my keys on the keyboard don't want to work and I was told I need to replace it. But how do I remove my current keyboard on my Compaq Presario 2100 laptop?

You need to unscrew some of the screws on the bottom of your laptop. They may be under your battery, or under little rubber covers. It is likely but not gauranteed that the right screws will have little keyboard icons next to them, if not, guess, and then try to remove the keyboard, if it doesn't come off, remove another screw...etc.

Finally, when it comes off, there will be a bus (group of wires) connecting it to the motherboard. Wiggle the bus slowly and gently out of the port on the motherboard, and then wiggle the new bus of the new keyboard into the port and screw the new keyboard in.

The drivers should be installed automatically, and it should work right away.

How do I replace the keyborad?

The repair of the replacement of your laptop keyboard
is not that difficult of a task. Once you have a new or replacement keyboard for your model, its just a simple process of removing a few screws and attaching a few cables. In most laptops, keyboard can be replaced by removing a single screw on the bottom of the laptop, usually designated by a "K" and removing the snap on strip located above the keyboard between the keyboard and the monitor display hinges (usually where the power button and LED indicators are). Sometimes you will need to remove a couple of screws on the rear of the laptop hinges to remove this strip. This all depends on the make and model of your laptop. Once this strip is removed, you should have access to any additional screws securing the keyboard in place. From there, the keyboard can usally be gently lifted out. There will be a ribboon cable connected to an interface on the keyboard to the mainboard. This is normally latched in place by a small clamp. Insert the ribbon cable from the new keyboard into the mainboard interface and lock it down, then lower the new keyboard into place and replace the screws (if any) which hold the keyboard. Replace the cover strip and snap back into place and replace any screws you had to take out to remove thestrip. Replace the locking screw on the bottom of the laptop and that should do it. Things to remember: 1) Always remove all power sources, both AC and battery before removing any screws or servicing your computer. 2) When the power sources are removed, always push the power button and hold for a few seconds to make sure all power possibly stored in the laptops capicitors is full discharged. 3) always make sure you keep track of all screws removed and put them back in the exact location you removed them from. 4) Do not over-tighten or strip the screws - a quarter turn past the point of of where the screw feels resistant should be sufficient. 5) Always make sure to ground yourself by touching a metal object before you touch any elctronic components of the computer - static discharge held in your body can damage your laptop.

I would normally recommend you locate a service manual before attempting this service, however I was unsuccessful in finding one for you during my search for this model. These are general instructions for changing out a keyboard. There may be specific differences based on your model. If in doubt, consult with a PC Tech at an authorized service center.

I hope this helps FixYa! Please leave us some feedback and a testimonial if you find this information helpful.
