Mine comes off from the top - with the notebook open - right at the back of the keyboard there's a strip that clips off. Under there there are some screws and the keyboard lifts toward you and out from the bottom. This is on a Toshiba, don't know if yours is the same.

Spilled water on keyboard. a few keys don't work


If this problem occurred recently you might still be able to save the keyboard. However, it is a painstaking method of popping out each of the keys that are not working and cleaning them off (preferably with some contact cleaner) and making sure that there is no corrosion trying to form due to the moisture. Be careful when prying up some keys as some keyboards (especially laptop keyboards) are hard to put back if you don't have the right tools or the know how. I suggest looking up keyboard removal techniques based on the brand of your keyboard/laptop.
Good luck...

2wsx keys dont work


Sorry you are having trouble. This sounds like the keyboard is bad. Take it to a shop if you don't feel comfortable replacing it your self. This is a fairly easy job. Remove the bezel with the power switch. Then remove the keyboard. Let me know if you need more info.

HP's maintenance and service guide for the dv4-1220us:

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01597750.pdf

The keyboard removal starts on "page 72" but your pdf reader will register it as page 80 instead... just for what that's worth.

I hope that helps.

@ key on keyboard does not work


Go to the control panel and check the Regional and Language settings. If the @ symbol shows up as something else, the keyboard and computer maybe set up as the United Kingdom instead of the United States. Check all settings including location and make sure they are set to English and English-United States, click on apply and ok and reboot.

Keyboard sticking


Hello, A sticky keyboard can sometimes be fixed by removing the key as you've done, but sometime the trouble lies deeper in the keyboard. There are small contacts that can wear out or get built up with a surface film. Might be time to replace the whole keyboard. It's not that hard if you have the aptitude and they do come out and go in as a complete unit. Cost for a new one can be from $20 - 50. Try looking on ebay & the link below.
Good luck, mpawlak908

N, H, T and Backspace keys suddenly not working.


You can try blowing it out with compressed air, but you will probably need to remove the keyboard to make sure nothing was spilled or stuck in there. You should be able to remove the keyboard by removing the battery, then removing the keyboard securing strip, and then you should be able to take a screwdriver and pry the keyboard up and out.

I finally managed to remove the cover and solder the broken wire. Works fine exept the keyboard, but that is a result of old soda spill. This computer has been used with external keyboard for some months. I cleaned the keyboard with luke warm water and placed it for dry for 36 hours, but there are still som keys that dont work and Fn seems to be constantly on.

Keyboard


Although those are not the keys that typically go out first due to wear I suspect that the keys are just worn. Typically this type of problem starts off with a key occasionally not working unless you press it hard and progressing to the point where it doesn?t work at all. The fix will probably be replacing the keyboard which runs about $50 on Ebay (US layout). If you are adventuresome you can try removing the keyboard and cleaning the key contacts but be warned laptop keyboards are not designed to be repaired. Chances are fair that your efforts may cause more problems. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
