Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Just ordered a keyboard and want to replace it


Answers :

Most laptops have a couple of screws on the bottom that hold the keyboard in, and you will probably have to pop off a cover along the top of the upper cover. The old keyboard will lift out and there will be a flat ribbon cable plugged into the system board. Carefully release any locking tabs and unplug the cable, then plug the new one in and reassemble the computer.

If you search for "keyboard replacement" for your model, you should find plenty of detailed information (possibly even youtube videos) illustrating the procedure.
