Hi,

If a key is popped up, its better to replace the keyboard instead of trying to put it back on the laptop.

You can call HP they will always replace the keyboard, if the key popped up.

If you dont have warranty you can better buy a new keyboard.

It is better to but a new keyboar, than to give someoone the same money to replace the old one.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

How to remove the keyboard of a HP Mini 110 3130sv


Removing the Damaged Keyboard
1. Enusre the laptop is fully powered off, unplugged laptop ac adapter from the wall, and the battery taken out.
2. Turn the laptop over. On some models icons indicating which screws are attached to the keyboard for HP Mini 110-3130sv displayed. If not, you may have to "eyeball" it if you can't find a breakdown for your model online.
3. Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
4. Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the HP laptop keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
5. Remove the plastic pieces carefully with a toothpick or plastic pick if there is any in the way.
6. Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, ribbon cable to the system board at the bottom.
7. Take that same pick and lift the plastic connectors that hold in this data cable in place.
8. Carefully remove the data cable. Now the whole HP Mini 110-3130sv replacement keyboard should be free.
Replacing the keyboard.
1. Take the new keyboard out of the plastic, and slip the data cable back in between the plastic connectors on the system board. Make sure it's all the way in.
2. Use the pick to push the plastic connectors back into place, and make sure it's holding the data cable in.
3. Slip the keyboard itself into place, from bottom to top. Make sure the screw holes or clamps line up at the top.
4. Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
5. If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
6. Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
7. Finally, put the battery back in and power on the laptop. If all has gone well, the HP Mini 110-3130sv Keyboard should be functioning like brand new.

Need to replace broken key on keybord. plastic appartus on key underside broke


Remove sticky tape securing the keyboard cable to back of the keyboard.Part of the keyboard cable is glued to the keyboard. Carefully separate the cable from the keyboard.Start peeling off the aluminum protective film Remove the protective film. After the protective film is removed it's really hard to attach it back to the keyboard because it's deformed.Most laptop keyboards have some kind of plastic separators.
These separators secured on the back of the keyboard.
Plastic pins are melted on the back of the keyboard and retain separators in place.Push all plastic pins though wholes on the keyboard.Start removing the separator.The plastic separator has been removed.
Now you'll have to remove all key caps.
Before you start removing key caps, make a picture or xerocopy of the keyboard so you know the order in which keys are attached to the keyboard.In order to remove the key cap carefully lift it up with your fingers.Remove the key cap so the hinge underneath stays connected to the keyboard.
Some big keys have a different design.
In addition to the hinge, some big keys (Back space or Space bar for example) might have an additional support bracket.Remove the key cap with the support bracket. As you see, the key hinge stays connected to the keyboard.Some laptop keyboards might have blank covers on the left and right sides from the up arrow key.Lift up and remove the blank cover.All keyboard key caps and plastic separators have been removed.Now you can start removing key hinges - key lifting mechanisms.Carefully separate the key hinge from the keyboard.
Each key hinge has two parts - external and internal pieces.
When you remove the hinge, try to keep these parts connected to each other the same way they are connected on the keyboard.If the external and internal pieces got separated, you can assemble them together.If you following this guide to repair the keyboard, I would recommend to keep all hinges in the right order.
The keyboard has two sheets laying one on the top of another.
Remove the sheet with silicone (or rubber) nipples.Remove the second sheet with traces.Both sheets have been separated from the keyboard base.The sheet with traces has two layers and all traces are running between these layers.In order to access and repair traces you'll have to separate to layers from each other.The keyboard has been disassemble.
As you see it's not easy to disassemble a laptop keyboard and even harder to put it back together.
Is it worth repairing? Probably not. These days you can find a new laptop keyboard very cheap.

Laptop keyboard is not responding & as far as I know no liquids have been spilled on it. Is there a key that my son might have used to disable it? It is a HP laptop


probably your son might lock the keyboard what you have to do is that on the keyboard you will see where they wrote Fn key beside the ctrl key hold or press the key, then on top of the functional key i.e F1 to F12 among those keys you will see where they draw or shown something like key or padlock press the key in other to open your keyboard.

In case it doesn't work try the second option.

well, what i can say is that try to loose the laptop you will see where they wrote kb at the back of the laptop then loose those screw after loosing it, then bring out the keyboard with the flex then dust it out.
if it those not work again change the keyboard.

Hp pavilion zt3000 keyboard locked and keyboard drivers will not load


turn on the laptop and try going into the BIOS, if you can get into the BIOS then you know the keyboard is only locked in windows. If you can't get into the BIOS cause the keyboard is not responding then the keyboard ribbon needs to be reseated and if that doesn't work then the keyboard is bad. If the keyboard is working, reboot again and keep pressing F8 and it should bring up a menu. Choose safe mode and you should be able to get in there. If you can then go ahead and go into the accessories folder in the start menu and into system tools and choose system restore. Choose the last date that the keyboard last worked properly.

Go ahead at this point and let the machine restore to that date and when it reboots it will bring you back into windows and at this point, the keyboard should work. If it doesn't then its a problem with the OS and you'll need to do a factory restore.

Hello I have an Inspiron 1420 that is typing


Hi John,
It sounds to me like you have your Num Lock on. Find the Num Lock key (it should be on the top right of the keyboard) press that key and your keyboard will return to normal.

How can i put the tab key back on my Acer Aspire 5515 laptop keyboard?


Hello

If the TAB key physically came off, it's nearly impossible to reset it. I own a repair center and most of the time we cannot repair keys. Once in a great while a tiny dab of super glue will work but most times you'll need to replace the keyboard.

Alt key does not work


You can try to repair it, but its easier (and cheaper) to just buy a replacement keyboard on eBay. (or other online seller) Replacing is simple. Turn off the machine, remove the battery. There are 2 screws with pictures of a keyboard next to them. Remove those. Open the machine back up and remove the piece above the keyboard (start at the right side and gently pull up, it will release the clips) Then there are 4 screws in the top of the keyboard and a ribbon cable to unplug underneath the keyboard.
Good Luck James PC Tech

My ibm thinkpad key ""Q" came loose


Situation 1. The key cap and key retainer fell off the keyboard and you cannot figure out how to assemble them back. keyboard-key-repair-1.jpg Carefully remove the cap from any other working key so the key retainer stays connected to the keyboard.
keyboard-key-repair-2.jpg Take a closer look at the key retainer, it’s connected to the keyboard at four different points.keyboard-key-repair-3.jpg Assemble the disconnected retainer the same way as one on the keyboard and put it back in place.keyboard-key-repair-4.jpg Put the key cap on the retainer and snap the cap back in place.keyboard-key-repair-5.jpg
