    I can't seem to find the latches. do you push down? push in? i can get most of the top lifed up from the edges but can't seem to unlatch at the top.

  • sales324 Feb 02, 2010

    we thought we found the clips but it's being held down in the center top right below the sony logo on the screen

  • sales324 Feb 02, 2010

    I've unscrewed every screw on the bottom and that top piece still isn't 'coming off. the latches are unlatched but the top still isn't coming off. any clues?

    is it supposed to come off like this? if so it's catching near the cd rom on the left side and around the f2. if it's not supposed to come off like this then i'm completely lost. i am looking inside and can't see the lcip from the inside at all.

    the clips were below the control and the right arrow

You can't replace the keyboard of the laptop by yourself. Take a help from expert engineers or Service center experts.

There is 1 screw at the back at the center which holds the keyboard in and look carefully at the top of the keyboard, roughly near the escape and F1 key, there is a small latch that need to be pressed.Note that there is another one near the delete and insert key.Both need to be unclipped before the keyboard top will lift.Be very careful as you could damage the connections from keyboard/mouse to motherboard if you are not familiar with this.Also you will need a small flat screw driver,more or less the same you would use to open a watch..Hope this helps

    look carefully as they are hardly noticeable.

    The way you are pulling it off from the picture you attached is wrong.The keyboard detaches first.Then once it is out,there are some screws underneath the keyboard which you will need to remove first before the bit you were pulling off will come out.Remember you need to disconnect the connections from motherboard to mouse and keyboard before you attempt the last thing you were doing on the picture.The keyboard needs to be unclipped out,that is top bit first, where the escape button, f1,f2 etc.. then once out the bottom one, near the space bar will pop out.

I took my old sony vaio vgn-n320e apart to update RAM and the HDD. I have reassembled it all except for the ribbon cable beneath the keyboard. Any suggestions on how to get it to stay in place?


The ribbon cable is secured by a plastic pressure tab. If you feel/pull around the edges of the plastic socket you should be able to pull up the tab. Slide the ribbon cable in and press the tab back down. This will secure the ribbon cable in place.

Seem to be a screw in the case under keyboard how


with the laptop over on its back you will see two screw holes seperated apart by a couple inches right in the middle of the case. These screw holes are in the middle of two recesses molded into the case bottom. The screw on the right is the screw that releases the keyboard. Once this screw is removed, the only other thing holding the laptop keyboard is the 5 retaining tabs along the bottom of the keyboard. Release these and rotate the keyboard up and release the cable from the motherboard.
