Answers :


I will provide you a solution this solution are very useful\015\012with you. You can do it with your self to follow this instructions.\015\012There are some image on how to replace the keyboard.

These instructions will help you to remove and replace keyboards on\015\012various laptops. I will not be able to cover all models but you’ll get\015\012the idea. Steps for removing and replacing the keyboard are similar for\015\012most laptops.
\015\012- if your laptop is still covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, do not open the case or you can loose the warranty
\015\012- always remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter before you open the laptop case
\015\012- if you damage the keyboard connector on the motherboard you’ll have to replace the whole motherboard
\015\012- proceed on your own risk
\015\012Sony laptop
\015\012I took these pictures from a Sony Vaio PCG-K33 (model PCG-9S1L) notebook. Should be similar for some other Sony notebooks too.
\015\012sony-keyboard-1.jpg\015\012Insert a small flathead screwdriver under\015\012the keyboard bezel and carefully lift it up. Continue releasing plastic\015\012latches and removing the keyboard bezel with your fingers.
Be careful, on some models the bezel might be connected to the\015\012motherboard as it shown on the picture above. If you accidentally\015\012pulled the cable, connect it back. It is not necessary to disconnect\015\012the keyboard bezel from the motherboard in order to remove and replace\015\012the keyboard, just put it aside so you can access the keyboard screws.
\015\012sony-keyboard-3.jpg\015\012Remove three (or more) screws from the top of the keyboard. Carefully lift up the keyboard from the laptop case.
\015\012sony-keyboard-4.jpg\015\012The keyboard connects to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable.\015\012Before you pull the cable from the connector, you’ll have to unlock the\015\012connector.
\015\012sony-keyboard-5.jpg\015\012The image above illustrates how to unlock the keyboard connector.\015\012Carefully move the connector lock 2-3 millimeters up and after that\015\012pull the keyboard cable. To install the keyboard, follow the above\015\012mentioned steps in the reverse order.
\015\012Toshiba laptop
\015\012The following pictures were taken from a Toshiba Satellite A135\015\012laptop. The keyboard removal instructions will be almost the same for\015\012most modern Toshiba laptops.
\015\012toshiba-keyboard-1.jpg\015\012The keyboard bezel removal procedure is similar to the above\015\012mentioned Sony Vaio laptop. Lift it up with a small screwdriver and\015\012remove using fingers. On most Toshiba laptops the keyboard bezel\015\012doesn’t have any circuit board underneath, it’s just a piece of plastic\015\012and you don’t have to worry about cables.
\015\012toshiba-keyboard-2.jpg\015\012After the bezel is removed you get an access to the keyboard screws.\015\012Remove two (or more) screws. Release the plastic latch pointed with the\015\012red arrow and lift up the keyboard. Carefully put the keyboard aside so\015\012you can access the connector underneath the keyboard. Do not forget\015\012that the keyboard is still connected to the motherboard.
\015\012toshiba-keyboard-3.jpg\015\012Before you remove the keyboard, you’ll have to open the connector and release the flat ribbon cable.
\015\012toshiba-keyboard-4.jpg\015\012Here’s a closeup picture of the keyboard connector on the\015\012motherboard. Be careful, this type of connector is fragile. On the left\015\012image the connector is closed. On the right image the connector is\015\012opened. Unlock the connector by moving the lock up as it shown on the\015\012right image and after that release the ribbon cable. Remove and replace\015\012the keyboard. For assembly instructions follow all the steps in the\015\012reverse order.

Hope it is helpful for you!
