You display can either be stand-alone which means it it not attached to the entire top cover this you can tell by looking on the side edges of your laptop. if it is indeedstand alone then you will have to use a very thin flat screwdriver to push tne clips inwards and then you would have to pull upwards the first set of clips you must uphinge and located at the back of the laptop where the lcd joins to the main body when those are inclipped it shouldbe loose enough to see where the remaining clips are located. If its not stand alone this means the entire top cover is one piece and thus you would also unclip the back first but then you will have to unclip the sides and front the same way thus the entire top cover including the synaptic pad will come loose, along with the keyboard.

every laptop is different some have screws underneath some have a part of the casing above the keyboard that can be removed by sliding it to one side revealing the screws underneath this could also house the power buttons and some unfortunately require the complete laptop motherboard etc removing first and i know with my sony this is what i had to do, so firstly check for a strip above the keyboard and try sliding it to one side, if there is a strip then youre in luck as it will normally reveal 3 screws holding down the keyboard which will allow the keyboard to lift and unclip and then you just need to unclip the ribbon cable from the motherboard, if theres no strip then you could try turning the laptop over and removing any screws that are directly under the keyboard and see if this frees it and also removing any memory and hard drive that may be hiding any screws, if this does not solve your problem then you are heading for a complete stripdown of the laptop base which unless you feel competent in doing so is best left to the experts, hope this helps

Keyboard replacement on PB Easynote MIT RHEA C

look along the top of the keyboard for plastic lugs. There maybe 4 along the top. Use a small flat blade screw driver to unclip these. Failing that lok under the nb for screws marked by a keyboard symbol. Don't wrench the keyboard out as there is a ribbon connecting it to your m/board. Thsi should have a black clip which will either slide back or flip up. Be gentle with it. It only takes a few minutes.

How to fix a keyboard on a laptop that is not working

Toshiba keyboards are very easy to replace and they can be sourced easily from loads of suppliers. just browse the net and you will find them.
To fit, just turn it over and look for two screws usually in the centre of the machine. they will have a tiny picture of the keyboard next to them. Remove the screws. Turn the laptop back up the right way and the keyboard should just lift up. there will be a large flat ribbon cable holding it to the motherboard, (so don't pull on it as you will break the connector) unclip the connector and the cable will fall out.
To fit is just the reverse.

Good luck.

Spilled some red wine in my Toshiba Satellie L640 and now some of the keys stick or don't work so I would like to clean it. 1. How does one do this? 2. Is it a bad idea to do this? I'd rather not...


You can try cleaning the keyboard but the keyboard has to be removed first before you attempt to clean it. That hopefully will work, however please be aware that if the wine has gotten between the keyboard membrane then it could cause the keyboard to type other characters not assigned to them or others as well as their own when you reinstall the keyboard.

To clean the keyboard first we have to remove it. Turn the laptop off and close the lid, remove any AC power that's connected. Turn the laptop over and then take out the battery.
In the battery compartment remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard bezel down that are circled in the picture below. (the keyboard bezel is thin piece of plastic that runs the length of the laptop above the keyboard)

When the screws are removed turn the laptop back over, open the lid and carefully lift up the keyboard bezel and remove it from the laptop like in the picture below.

Next you have revmove the three screws securing the keyboard in place like in next picture.

Lift up the top side of the keyboard and rest it on the palm rest/touchpad. Be very careful as the keyboard is still connected to the motherboard like in this picture below.

Now you have to remove the keyboard. In order to remove the keyboard you'll have to unlock the connector and release the cable.
Look at the next picture and lift up the right side of the locking tab so it opens up at a 90 degree angle as shown and carefully pull away the ribbon cable

Lift the keyboard away from the laptop and then get a clean, warm, damp cloth and start to wipe the top of the keyboard. Don't try to remove the keys as you can damage the cradles and also they are very hard to put back on.
Keep on rinsing the cloth with clean warm water and wring it out a bit. Keep on repeating this until the keys release and become springy again.
Once you are happy with keyboard just reinstall the keyboard by reversing the steps above.

When you have re-assembled the laptop turn it on and open a notepad or text document and see if the keyboard is typing all the correct characters for the printed symbol. If some are not working or are typing multiple characterst then you will need to replace the keyboard. Click on the blue link below for an idea.

Hope this helps, good luck.

How do you replace the keyboard on a toshiba satellite pro m70? I have a replacement keyboard but cannot seem to unclip the securing strip on each corner. Please help!!!!

Usually there is a series of screws that need to be removed on the bottom of Toshiba laptops. Usually the majority of these screws, and a good place to start, is under the battery.

You may need to also remove the plastic plate above the keyboard to reveal more securing clips or screws.

I removed the panel above the keyboard, removed the four screws and tilted the keyboard forward. Unclipped the ribbon cable and the keyboard was out. Replacement was the opposite procedure to removal, very easy after I thought about it. Thanks

Keyboard removal

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.
