Good afternoon. I disassembled my Asus eeepc 900hd to fix a fan noise; in doing that, the connector of the touch pad went outside its alluminium adesive holder. How can I put it bak in place?


Do you mean on the keyboard side, or the motherboard side? If it was keyboard side, there's nothing that can be done except buy a new keyboard. If it's on the motherboard side, there should be a clamp that can be released by either sliding or lifting slightly. Insert the ribbon cable back into the contact, and close the clamp.

Hi, I have a toshiba tecra a1-137. While typing, the cursor often jumps from one line to another. Any suggestions? Thanks


There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

This guide is to provide some help for those who want to disassemble their laptop.
You have to be sure that the problem you face is from the hardware, and that your laptop is not under warranty, since that laptop disassembly void warranty.
Search on the net for service manuals some are free and other cost around 6$ . Not find your model ? download some free service manual from different brands and read them many steps are the same in laptop disassembly. But i do recommended to find the manual that fit your laptop because you may need to know the part number of the defective part to change it.
Now you have to prepare a clean working area with small box for the different parts and their screws, and maybe a pen and a paper to remember particular step.
To disassemble the computer, you need the tools below:
Wrist ground strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge
Small Phillips screw driver
Flat head screw driver
Hexagonal driver
Tweezers
NOTE : The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components.
When you remove the stripe cover, please be careful not to scrape the cover.
In most of laptop you can actually access by the base to these bays :
battery
memory
hard disk
Remove them all, to remove the optical disk just release the screw securing the optical disk module,push the ODD module using a screwdriver and remove the ODD module from the main unit.
After that look on the keyboard area to find how to remove the keyboard for example with an Acer aspire 5100, you have to remove the middle cover from the edge of the middle cover and carefully detach the middle cover, then you just have to release the two screws securing the keyboard plate and carefully detach the keyboard plate from the edge of the keyboard plate finish by release the keyboard FFC lock carefully because it is fragile. Then remove the keyboard plate.
After that you can either disassembly the lcd module or try to access the motherboard.
For the LCD module carefully disconnect the LCD cable and any other cable that you can see, release any screws holding the LCD module on the bottom side of the main unit, release any other screws securing the LCD hinges on the main unit, then detach the LCD module from the main unit.
For the motherboard every model are different then you have to explore by yourself, but not forget to read some service manuals before.
You can find some free service manuals at laptop support.
I hope that this will give some help.
Didier Pradel is the webmaster of laptop support where you can find many useful informations, and help for your lovely laptop.

Acer Aspire 5100 Keyboard Not Working


Hi

this is a common fault in the acer aspire 5100 series, also in few other series, 3102wlmi, I have it here. same issue as you. I ordered a new keyboard for it but Haven't tried it yet. unlikely to solve the problem. I beleave the issue is on the motherboard.

Touchpad and keyboard are dead on my 3102 also. I will try the new keyboard on Thursday and get back to you if it solved the problem.

possibly the only fix that can be performed at home is to replace the whole board, most computer repair shops will also just replace the motherboard.

it will require a close inspection on the motherboard, have you already contacted acer? I think the price of a new motherboard at www.acerparts.com is around 200-500 usd I haven't checked myself.

How to dissassembled IBM thinkpad 570


The keyboard is held by two screws on the bottom of the machine, then you just need to work it up ay one side and off. I've had a few that the keyboard was stuck, and had to pull a little harder to get it off. When separating the plastics, there are a few hidden screws under black sticky pads, 4 at the front of the machine that I can think of right off hand, make sure you get these. Once you get the keyboard off, just take your time and be sure to remove all visible screws. Here's a link to some IBM service manuals. Couldn't find one for the 570, but the T series have the same basic design. Look over the manuals, they should be able to give you a better idea of hoe they come apart.

P5NSLI USB will not work


hi mickeymaas,

please have it check in your bios if its enable or not, if its not then have it enable and restart your computer, this usually happens when we did not properly remove usb devices . If you dont know how to go to bios, just remove the other devices and restart your pc
then put all those devices back., except for the mouse and the keyboard.
