Compaq Presario 2500 (2598us) loose keyboard

I replaced the dvd drive on a compaq presario, which required removing the keyboard. I thought I was quite gentle with it, but apparently not enough, because now the keyboard keys have to be pushed twice or harder than before to register as a pressed key. The problem is getting to be very annoying.

You might want to check the keyboard connection. It sounds as if it's not connected or seated properly.

Hello, My Compaq Presario 750US will


Hi,

The motherboard of your laptop might have encountered a short circuit. If you've already removed and reseated all possible removable parts and still get the same result, purchase a replacement motherboard or check if it is still under warranty.

Good luck.

How do i remove my compaq presario 2200's hard drive?


The Compaq Presario line is one of the longest-running series of computers, originating in 1993 and remaining in production even after the purchase of Compaq by HP. Because of this, many Compaq Presario desktops have required that some of their parts be upgraded or replaced because of the wear that they have received over years of standard use. One of the more commonly replaced Presario desktop components is the hard drives, especially given how much hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif storage capacity has increased since the Compaq Presario line was introduced. Replacing a hard drive in a Compaq Presario desktop isn't difficult, and can usually be done in a matter of minutes even for users who aren't familiar with computer upgrades.
structions
  1. Step 1Remove the screws holding the left side panel of the computer on, then slide the panel back to remove it. Set both the panel and the screws aside so that you can put the panel back in place once the hard drive has been replaced.
  2. Step 2Unplug the ATA (wide, flat and usually gray) or SATA (thicker, thin and red) data cable and the power cable from the back of the hard drive that is currently in the Compaq Presario. Move the cables so that they will be out of the way, but make sure that they will still be easily accessible to you so that you can plug them into the new hard drive.

Remove hd compaq presario 1621


I think it is the same as HP. When you undo the cover just pull it right out by the small plastic. No screws holding the drive.

Removal of laptop keyboard


Dear ctmom

Please find below the link to download the


HP Pavilion zx5000 Notebook PC, HP Pavilion zv5000 Notebook PC, Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook PC, HP Compaq nx9100 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

( http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00212209.pdf )


Removing the keyboard firstly requires the removal of the top plastic strip in order to gain access with the screwdriver to the four screws. To remove it follow the instructions at pages 137 & 138 and you are almost there.

Then on page 139&140 you will find the information to remove the keyboard. It explains all the information very analytically. You are simply unscrewing the four screws on the top side. On the bottom it is simply slided.

TIP: Be careful when you are releasing the keyboard up towards you. The flexi cable that is connected to the motherboard is quite short-fragile and does not have a lot of space to move so go slow until you have released the connector’s tabs and the cable is loose to be removed.

Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work in the laptop.
