1. Open display to 180 deg. (put AC adapter under it for support)! 2. With small flat screwdriver, pry up at each hinge cover - this releases the wide panel containing the ON/OFF switch +> it is connected by a small cable! carefully unplug the 6-pin plug. 3. Take out the 3 small screws at the rear keyboard tabs. 4. Carefully pry up the sides of the keyboard to release the hooks (2 each side). 5. Pull up on each side of the ZIF clamp to release the keyboard ribbon. The clamp will only move 1/16" - CAREFUL NOT TO GO TOO FAR!!!

Even after you have removed the screws the keyboard is still wedged on to the display panel just above it you have to actually unclip the display panel first and then only you would be able to remove the keyboard, gently because the keyboard would still be attack via cable to the mainboard.

Clean my laptop keyboard stisky


LOL, you shouldn't eat and drink over your laptop. Count your blessings that you didn't shorten your motherboard out. The best way to clean it is to probably take it apart from the computer.

Remove the power cord, remove the battery, then turn the laptop over and start removing screws from the bottom. Look inside the battery case and there might be screws there, specifically there might be some with the icon of a keyboard. Once you have the screws removed, turn the laptop over and open the lid, then pry off the strip that is over the keyboard just under the lcd screen. Once you remove it you might see more screws that hold the keyboard in place so remove them. Once all screws are removed, lift the keyboard gently because there will be a cable underneath it. Remove the cable that is attached to the keyboard and then you can clean it. I would use something like a toothpick or Q-Tip cotton swab and maybe some rubbing alcohol. You'll have to hold keys down that are around the key you want to clean to get under the key you want to clean that is stuck. Once you've cleaned it press it repeatedly to make sure it does not stick.

How do I remove the keyboard from Asus K50IJ ?


Try these steps:
1. Place your laptop on a clean, flat surface and remove all power sources from it. Open your laptop screen as far as you can.
2. 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 Asus keyboard screws. Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that hold the Asus K50IJ Keyboard in place. Keep these screws in a safe place.
3. Gently tug the Asus K50IJ Keyboard component toward your laptop screen. 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.

I would like to disasemble my laptops hinges but dont know how


What is the Model Series number?
There is a slight difference between the ZV6000, and ZX5000/ZV5000 series, for this procedure.

I want to give you the link to the Service Manual, (Free)
It won't describe, or illustrate the entire procedure of removing the Hinges, but will help for me to guide you.

The basic procedure is to remove all electrical sources first.
AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. Work on a table.
Follow Anti-Static Precautions before you begin.

Have a multi-compartment container, for the various screws you will remove, and label each compartment for where the screws came from.
(You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch)

Open the laptop, remove the Strip Cover,

(Below the LCD screen, and above the Keyboard. There are screws to remove from the bottom, so that the Strip Cover can be removed)

The Strip Cover will be popped up, and out, and there is a procedure for this.
(Start at one end, work your way along, basically)

The Keyboard is removed next. There is a procedure so you don't break the tiny keyboard connection cable.

There is a Thermal Cover to remove.

Next are the Wireless Antenna cables, and Display cable.
There may also be a Display Ground cable.

Screw covers for the hinges are removed from the back. The hinge screws are removed next.

The above is a General, Basic, set of procedures.
Advise do not follow it.
It's just to give you a basic idea of what is entailed.

If your problem Does Not relate to the HP Pavilion ZV6000, ZX5000, or ZV5000 series of laptops, state what laptop manufacturer, and model series it is.
(State in a Comment)

Need to replace dvd dr and can't get notebook apart.


You need to have a manual of that on how to remove. It is hard for the people who do not have experience in laptop trouble but you can do it with your self. You need to follow of this some instruction.

The first things you should do is to remove the battery.

Insert a sharp thin object between the keyboard securing strip and the laptop base and carefully lift up the strip. After that you can continue removing the keyboard strip with your fingers.

Remove the keyboard securing strip.

Remove two screws securing the laptop keyboard.
After you remove the screws, lift up the keyboard and place is so you can access the keyboard connector on the system board.

If you need to remove and replace the keyboard, you can do it now. Before you pull the keyboard cable from the connector you have to open the connector.
To remove the DVD/CD-ROM drive, remove the securing screw first. After that push on the drive to slide it away from the laptop base.

Grasp the drive and remove it from the laptop.

Before you replace the optical drive, do not forget to transfer braces to a new optical drive.

You can view some photos of that procedure here,

These instructions will help you to remove and replace keyboards on various laptops. I will not be able to cover all models but you’ll get the idea. Steps for removing and replacing the keyboard are similar for most laptops.
Warning!
- if your laptop is still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, do not open the case or you can loose the warranty
- always remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter before you open the laptop case
- if you damage the keyboard connector on the motherboard you’ll have to replace the whole motherboard
- proceed on your own risk
Sony laptop
I took these pictures from a Sony Vaio PCG-K33 (model PCG-9S1L) notebook. Should be similar for some other Sony notebooks too.
sony-keyboard-1.jpg Insert a small flathead screwdriver under the keyboard bezel and carefully lift it up. Continue releasing plastic latches and removing the keyboard bezel with your fingers.
sony-keyboard-2.jpg
Be careful, on some models the bezel might be connected to the motherboard as it shown on the picture above. If you accidentally pulled the cable, connect it back. It is not necessary to disconnect the keyboard bezel from the motherboard in order to remove and replace the keyboard, just put it aside so you can access the keyboard screws.
sony-keyboard-3.jpg Remove three (or more) screws from the top of the keyboard. Carefully lift up the keyboard from the laptop case.
sony-keyboard-4.jpg The keyboard connects to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable. Before you pull the cable from the connector, you’ll have to unlock the connector.
sony-keyboard-5.jpg The image above illustrates how to unlock the keyboard connector. Carefully move the connector lock 2-3 millimeters up and after that pull the keyboard cable. To install the keyboard, follow the above mentioned steps in the reverse order.
Toshiba laptop
The following pictures were taken from a Toshiba Satellite A135 laptop. The keyboard removal instructions will be almost the same for most modern Toshiba laptops.
toshiba-keyboard-1.jpg The keyboard bezel removal procedure is similar to the above mentioned Sony Vaio laptop. Lift it up with a small screwdriver and remove using fingers. On most Toshiba laptops the keyboard bezel doesn’t have any circuit board underneath, it’s just a piece of plastic and you don’t have to worry about cables.
toshiba-keyboard-2.jpg After the bezel is removed you get an access to the keyboard screws. Remove two (or more) screws. Release the plastic latch pointed with the red arrow and lift up the keyboard. Carefully put the keyboard aside so you can access the connector underneath the keyboard. Do not forget that the keyboard is still connected to the motherboard.
toshiba-keyboard-3.jpg Before you remove the keyboard, you’ll have to open the connector and release the flat ribbon cable.
toshiba-keyboard-4.jpg Here’s a closeup picture of the keyboard connector on the motherboard. Be careful, this type of connector is fragile. On the left image the connector is closed. On the right image the connector is opened. Unlock the connector by moving the lock up as it shown on the right image and after that release the ribbon cable. Remove and replace the keyboard. For assembly instructions follow all the steps in the reverse order.
