How to remove the keyboard


Keyboards become worn out over time. Individual keys can become damaged, become less sensitive to key strokes, or disengage from the keyboard. Keyboards can also become corroded from spills. Many keyboards on HP laptops can be replaced. Hewlett-Packard has made hundreds of different laptop models. Each model may require slightly different steps for replacing the keyboard. To locate a replacement keyboard, you can contact HP directly or another online or offline source that sells computer parts.
1.Power off the laptop. Flip the laptop over to access the device's underside.
2.Remove the battery cover and take out the battery.
3.Remove a screw to the left of the memory bay. This screw will be one of two resting in the middle of the underside of the device. You want to remove the right screw, the left screw is attached to the CD/DVD-ROM drive, not the keyboard. (This screw may be red in color.)
4.Flip the laptop back over and raise the laptop screen so you have access to the keyboard area. Insert the tip of a Flathead screwdriver along the bezel and detach it. Carefully pull the bezel up and set it aside. The bezel is connected to the device with a ribbon cable. Do not remove this ribbon cable. (The bezel is the above the laptop and is the cover that houses the power button.) Once the bezel is up, notice the three screws that are beneath it.
5.Unscrew the three screws holding down the keyboard.
6.Lift the keyboard forward toward the mouse area. Be careful, it is still connected to the motherboard by a keyboard cable.
7.Release the cable from the keyboard. Push both ZIF connectors on the side of the cable upwards, toward the laptop screen. Pull the cable from the connector and the keyboard is now released.
8.Insert the keyboard cable of the new keyboard into the ZIF connector. A pair of tweezers may be required to put the cable in place. Lay the keyboard flat down and rescrew in the screws. Replace the bezel cover. Flip the keyboard over and replace the screw on the underside near the memory bay. Insert the battery and battery cover.

Please may anyone assist to get driveres for dvd/rom-rw cc-dt-st rw/dvd gcc-4418b


ther are no driers required for cd/dvd drivers/burners in any windows above win me, that is win2000, winxp, vista or win7, all of these recognise cd/dvd drivers automaticaly,

1. click on "my computer",
2 if you see your cd/dvd there, then click right mouse button on it, 3. click left mouse button on "eject",

if cd is ejected, nothing wrong with your cd/dvd.

if you do not see cd in "my computer" listing, you need to check if all cables are plug in properly on it, remove side from your computer and check connections.

if cd i snot reacting to "eject" command, you need new cd rom, they cost aobut $25 to $50, depending where you buy, and are very easy to change.

if you want to do that by yourself, and your computer is not notebook, then you need philips screwdriver and that is all...

1. switch off computer
2. remove power cord from computer
3. remove both sides from the computer (screws on the back are holding them or sometime they are self-lock, then you maybe need bit help from person who know how to deal with self-locks.
4. remove four screws from your cd-rom sides holding it.
5. push cd-rom slightly forward and remove power and data cable from the back, remembe what position they were up!
6, push cd-rom forward till you remove it from the case.
7. check pinouts (if any) on the back of the cd-rom and change new one to exactly same.
8. partially slide new cd-rom in so you can connect back data and power cable
9. slide new cd-rom fully and mount the screws
10. mount sides of the computer
11. insert power cord
12. start the computer and enjoy your movie...

if on other hand you need software to write cd/dvd then search in google or any other search engine for: "free cd/dvd burn software" you will have few millino entries... choose that which offer really free, not only free download and use it. download few and try all, keep that one which you find most useful and delete all rest...

if you find my advice useful, do not hesitate leave comment, or vote4 for me, or even both :-) thanx!

Can not locate dvd rw drive


Either:
* the "power" cable from the computer's power-supply is not connected to the CD/DVD hardware;
* the "data" cable from the motherboard is not connected to the CD/DVD hardware -- check both ends of the cable.
* electronics inside the CD/DVD drive itself have failed.
* you have entered BIOS SETUP, and have "disabled" access to the drive.

Need to replace cd-rom drive, how difficult? dell dimension 3000 pc desktop


It is not difficult to change cd/dvd drive.
Open cpu cabinet.
Then remove icd cable and power cable from cd/dvd drive.
Then remove screws of old cd/dvd drive.
Then you can pull it from cabinet from front side.
Then put your new cd/dvd drive into it's position then lock it with screws.
Then connect ide cable from motherboard and power cable to drive.
Then you can use it.
If you connect to drive with 1 ide cable means if you connect harddrive and cd/dvd drive with 1 cable then set harddrive as master and cd/dvd rom as slave you can set it slave with jumper settings.
It is in back side of cd/dvd drive.
There is instruction how to slave it with jumper.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i remove the cd/dvd drive for my acer3003lc so that a can replace it


You can use the Toshiba Satellite 5205 guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

for the acer 3000
1. At the back of the laptop remove the three screws on the support posts for the screen
2. Open the laptop fully and lift the plastic panel that has the power button.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard in place
4. Carefully slide the keyboard towards the monitor and lift.
5. To the left of the keyboard ribbon cable is the screw that's been causing all this grief.
6. Remove, slide out optical drive, reassemble.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.

Removing/replacing dvd rom drive


Hi Jerry
I have written down steps on how to remove the DVD-Rom drive for you.
Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked.
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized. I keep them in small cups separated easier to find and don’t get lost.
1. Remove the laptop battery
2. Carefully lift off the securing strip at the top of the keyboard.
3. Remove the keyboard securing strip.
4. Remove all screws securing the laptop keyboard.
5. Disconnect the keyboard cable from the system board. Lift the edges of the connector first and then carefully disconnect the keyboard cable.
6. Remove screws securing the power switch board.
7. Disconnect the USB cable from the system board \motherboard
8. Lift off the power switch board.
9. Remove all screw from the support plate.
10. Remove the DVD drive securing screw.
11. Slide the DVD drive to the right and remove it.
12. Slide in the new DVD drive and follow this backwards.

Hope this helps it is not hard just have to take time an becareful when removing the securing strip at the top of the keyboard to get to screws.

Any questions I will be glad to help answer for you.
