Pop went on my keyboard by accident and most of the keys do not work. How do you fix it.

You'll need to replace the keyboard. First figure out how to remove it. Google or search the manufactures web site. One's I worked on have screws through the bottom labeled "K". Pay attention to the screw lengths and make sure the same ones go back in the same screws. The keybd itself just sets inside a little lip once you get the screws all out. Remove it and see if the pop went on to other areas of the laptop. If it did then I don't think you'll be able to repair it, But if it only on the key bd, I'd search ebay for another board. The ribbon cable just pushes on and off to remove it completely.

    The prong that the battery charger plugs onto is loose/broken, how do i take the top off the laptop to do so?

    Remove the keyboard first, there may be screws holding the case together under the keyboard.
    Make sure you first remove all the battery and drives etc. there are usually screws in these areas that secure the case together.
    The top and bottom parts of the case are held together by plastic clips. The best way to open the case is to start at an opening and gently spread apart the case until the clip releases and then continue along that edge and gradualy continue working along the other edges of the case.

    PSU connector on the mainboard

    Not sure about that brand but the normal process for removing the back on a lappy is:
    Remove all screws on the bottom.
    Remove all covers and cards and put them safe
    Remove battery rom and hard disk
    Remove panel above keyboard and screen hinge bracket cover if any
    Remove keyboard
    Remove any screws from under keyboard that hold chassis
    Remove screen bracket screws and connectors from screen.
    Remove screen off chassis.
    Remove any visible connectors that will get in the way when case is separated.
    Separate case making sure no cables are caught.
    Remove screws holding in motherboard
    Remove motherboard
    Turn over and resolder joints on the bottom of connector if plastic is in order.
    Reverse the procedure for assembly.
    Its not a very easy repair an experienced tech will take about an hour maybe a little longer to do it.
    If your memory isnt great take photos along the way, makes for easier assembly.
    Good luck

    Need asolution for "removing the back of an Everex SA2053T Notebook PC to change power supply connection"

    To do dis follow dis steps....

    1)Flipped the laptop back over and carefully removed the cover along the top (Where the power buttons is) by removing the three screws along the back of the laptop. You need to be careful removing this as it has small plastic clips that are very easily snapped. Once that’s off you can remove the two screws that hold the Keyboard in place. Lift the keyboard and release the catch on the Keyboard cable on the motherboard. Allows you to lift the keyboard away.

    2)Then remove the cable for the LCD display and pull the wireless connection cable through the hole, Remove the screws holding the Display in place and remove completely, Store it somewhere safe as these displays are very easy to break.

    3)Remove the 2 screws holding in the Power button board and lift it off. Again store it somewhere safe and on or in something antistatic.

    Bad hard drive on n5350

    Most laptops keep the hard drive on the bottom side. There is a cover screwed over the area with usually 2 screws, the cover is identified by the typical 3 disc stacked symbol. In some cases the hard drive slides out of the side, still being held by two screws, some even slide of the front and you must remove 2 rubber stoppers to uncover the screw holes. Each location usually has the hard drive symbol I described eariler. Hope this helps!

    How to put extra memory in Lenovo T60 laptop

    Ok the RAM location is actually underneath the touch pad on the top of your keyboard. However, to get to the memory area where you can add/remove RAM cards you need to do the following:
    STEP 1) On the botton the latop you should see 4 screws that have a "memory chip" ICON. These are the 4 screws you want to take out. (important note: my T60 has 4 screws with this icon, yours might have 5). Please the screws somewhere secure so they are not lost.
    STEP 2) After you take out the screws noted in step 1. Flip your laptop and open it up as if you were going to type something.
    On each side just below the keys pull up gently and the botton portion that has the touch pad will come up. You want to pull it back towards you. You won't be able to complete remove it away from the laptop, because there's a ribbon cable connecting the touch pad. So just move the piece back toward you out of the way (in essence peeling it back toward you).
    STEP 3) You should now see the RAM card(s) they will have a bracket mechanism on each side of the RAM card, push them outward to unlock the RAM card (if your removing.
    STEP 4) If your ADDING RAM. Evaluate if you need to remove existing cards or not. To install RAM you insert the new card in the slot, then push it down and it should snap int place.
    STEP 5) Place the touch pad plate back into position and push it to snap down.
    STEP 5) Close laptop cover, flip over and insert the screws back into their positions.
