    Thanks EngineerGR. I got it fixed (though that top plastic strip was tough to remove...I thought it might break, it was so stuck.) New keyboard working fine. Thanks again.

Please find below the link to download the

Removing the keyboard firstly requires the removal of the top plastic strip in order to gain access with the screwdriver to the four screws. To remove it follow the instructions at pages 137 & 138 and you are almost there.

Then on page 139&140 you will find the information to remove the keyboard. It explains all the information very analytically. You are simply unscrewing the four screws on the top side. On the bottom it is simply slided.

TIP: Be careful when you are releasing the keyboard up towards you. The flexi cable that is connected to the motherboard is quite short-fragile and does not have a lot of space to move so go slow until you have released the connector’s tabs and the cable is loose to be removed.

Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work in the laptop.

No driver for sm bus, system management bus Compaq Presario R3000 laptop with AMD processor


Hi,

You can find the bios driver for your laptop HERE. Since your updating drivers you might want to update all of them, that way you've got a current system.

Good Luck

Thanks

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Presario r3000 laptop 2/3yrs old occasionally the screen goes black . if i adjust screen open past 90 degrees the display returns.???how is thescreen powered from the base.??? larry thanks


The display is wired...it is flat, thin and flexible. There may now be a break point in the conductor...fixed by replacing same.

Alternative solution is to use external monitor. I'm almost certain your laptop has this capability...look on rear panel for a D-sub 3-row VGA connector. Plug in a VGA monitor and enable through keyboard Fn-(combination key)...look at key symbols for one that looks like a monitor.
