Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook ?

Replacing the keyboard

\015 Removed the old one. The Compaq R4000 has a ribbon type connection without a nice snap in plug like the dell laptops. I remove the little plastic hinge and the ribbon cable came out. Now I put in the New keyboard ribbon "Very Hard to do" then replaced the little plastic hinge to hold it in place "Very poorly" and then powered up the laptop but now my keyboard does not work. When I saw the ribbon connection I should have know I would have problems but I have replaced several on Dell Latitudes with out an incident.\015

Answers :

This is the link to the R4000 (and ZV6000) Maintenance and Service Manual. It has detailed instructions on how to disassemble and repair the computers.

Hope it helps!

Your only supposed to pull the hinge out carefully a small amount so the flex cable comes loose, then insert the new keyboards connector there and push them back into place. Its pretty much the same thing in all brands of laptops.

if you have broken the connector, you will probably be looking at buying a new motherboard unless you find someone to replace the broken connector.
