This is how I did it on my 2596us. Not sure if it is the same with all 2500 series.

Computer off, battery out and unplugged.

Remove two HIGHEST screws on the back part of the laptop then lay the monitor flat and gently pry up the sound bar at one end try to remove it.

There should be 4 screws holding the keyboard in above the F-keys and prt sc key. After removing those you will be able to slide the keypad forward, lift the keypad up at the SPACEBAR then undo the ribbon connection (lift sides of plastic holder up to release).

The hardest part is getting the ribbon cable back into the holder, but even that is not too difficult. Installation is reverse of removal.

Some of my keys on the keyboard don't want to work and I was told I need to replace it. But how do I remove my current keyboard on my Compaq Presario 2100 laptop?


You need to unscrew some of the screws on the bottom of your laptop. They may be under your battery, or under little rubber covers. It is likely but not gauranteed that the right screws will have little keyboard icons next to them, if not, guess, and then try to remove the keyboard, if it doesn't come off, remove another screw...etc.

Finally, when it comes off, there will be a bus (group of wires) connecting it to the motherboard. Wiggle the bus slowly and gently out of the port on the motherboard, and then wiggle the new bus of the new keyboard into the port and screw the new keyboard in.

The drivers should be installed automatically, and it should work right away.

How can i Uninstall totally the internal keyboard of my Presario 2500 laptop cause its broken,, it keeps on typing itself


You need to replace the keyboard, I think if you were to disconnect it, you would get boot up stopping errors. The keyboard is not very expensive, like less than 110 bucks, and is not terribly hard to switch out..

Keyboard removal


Generally, keyboards are the easiest thing to replace on a laptop except for memory.
Usually, there are either screws on the back that have little keyboard symbols next to them. If that is not the case, then you need to find a way to remove the little panel that is directly above the keyboard as the screws are probably under there.
Just a heads-up, doing any of this will void your warranty if you are still under it.

Keyboard is shot. They do that due to the heat laptops generate. I've probably replaced 200 laptop keyboards in the past 5 years. You can buy one on ebay for about $21.00. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-HP-COMPAQ-Presario-2100-2500-Keyboard-317443-001_W0QQitemZ190124162270QQihZ009QQcategoryZ116289QQcmdZViewItem Ray
