Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9100 Notebook ?

How do you replace the keyboard on a dell inspiron 9100? I have a bad "Esc" key. The key is gone and the clip that holds the key on is off. So I am going to buy a key board on ebay and replace either the key or the key board on the computer.


Answers :

First you have to remove the plastic molding that is between the keyboard and the monitor hinges. There are 3 or 4 little screws just above the F keys that will have to be removed. Slide the keyboard towards the monitor, and it will come out. You will have to unplug the ribbon cable from the motherboard. Reverse the procedure, and you will be good to go.
