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.

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,

Lift the rear edge of the switch cover and swing it forward until it rests on the keyboard.

Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector to which the LED board cable is connected and disconnect the cable from the LED board.
Remove the switch cover.

Now remove the panel directly above the battery compartment and remove the 2 keyboard screws there and another 2 screw in the battery compartment (they should me marked with icons of keyboards)

Turn the computer display-side up with the front panel towards you.
Open the computer as far as possible.
Lift the rear edge of the keyboard until it rests at an angle.
Slide the keyboard back to disengage the tabs on the front edge of the keyboard from the top cover.

How to remove Keyboard from Toshiba Satellite M45 latop.


Before you open the laptop case, remove the battery. The keyboard securing strip doesn’t have any securing screws and shouldn’t cause any problem when you remove it. The keyboard cable connector on the system board is cover by a metal plate and the plate has to be removed before you can get an access to the connector. Before you pull the keyboard cable from the connector you have to unlock it. To open the connector, move the connector lock toward the LCD screen. It is enough to move it 2-3mm to open the connector. Be careful with the keyboard connector on the system board. If you damage it, the entire system board has to be replaced.

Hope this helps

Toshiba 6100


It's on the motherboard and you'll have to take the system apart to get to it. There's a step by step instruction set here http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba6100/Toshiba_Satellite_Pro6100_dismantle_1.htm Take a look at step 16 ... "Lift off the battery board with the RTC battery to disconnect it from the system board. " So you'll have to get to at least step 16 ... I'd recommend you take it to a local repair shop as this isn't something for the faint of heart.
