I am assuming this is a laptop

Be very careful when handling internal parts that you do not
static zap them. Avoid staticky clothes, carpets etc.

Ground yourself to a water pipe, grounded metal appliance or
even the ground pin of a wall socket just before proceeding.
Very small static shocks, far less then a tingle, can permanently
damage the microchips inside a PC.

Also, the keyboard is probably held in place with a single small
screw and connected to the main board using a paper-thin
flexible printed circuit type ribbon connector. These connectors
are extremely fragile, yet very tightly held in place. Extreme
caution is needed when pulling them out, and it is even more
difficult to plug them back in.

Any physical damage, tearing or abrasion to the ribbon on
the new keyboard will permanently destroy it.

You will need bent long-nose pliers or plastic tweezers to
do this.

Good luck,

How do I remove/replace the keyboard from a HP Pavillion dv7-2277cl

1. Remove 6 screws from the bottom of the case (as shown). These screws hold the accessory cover.

2. Remove one screw securing the CD/DVD drive. Slide the CD/DVD drive to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard. Remove the CD/DVD drive.

3. Remove all marked screws from the bottom of the notebook.
The yellow circled screws secure the keyboard cover, and the green one secures the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

4. Turn the computer display-side up and open it as far as possible. Insert a guitar pick or small flat screwdriver between the keyboard cover and case and slowly move along the side.

5. Lift the keyboard cover. Be careful, it's still connected to the motherboard. Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector and disconnect the cable from the LED board. Remove the keyboard cover.

6. Remove the four screws that secure the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

7. Lift the rear edge of the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard until it rests at an angle. Slide the keyboard back to disengage the tabs on the front edge of the keyboard from the top cover and rest it on the display.

8. Release the ZIF connector to which the keyboard cable is attached and disconnect the keyboard cable. Remove the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

It's quite a task, so good luck. You shouldn't need any software, and all you should need is a good set of jewelers screwdrivers, and an anti-static wrist strap (important!).

This manual will tell you exactly how to do that, and pretty much anything else.

Replace fan in Compaq EVO 610c laptop

You need to download the maintenance guide for your laptop from the following URL. It will provide step by step instructions on how to take apart the laptop to reach the fan. You will also need some Torx screwdrivers, which can be bought from a hardware store. You also need to keep track of which screws go where. I label a piece of paper with the screw location and then use transparent package tape to tape the screws to the paper. Be careful about the ribbon that connects the keyboard to the computer. Don't try to remove the connector, just loosen the connector so the ribbons can slide out.
