Compaq Presario 1247 PC Notebook Keyboard Replacement

\015 HeyYa!\015\012\015\012I am a 1-guy shop PC service provider. I customer brought me a Compaq Presario 1247 PC Notebook that has the "2" key stuck. It is an old PC, but he has a program on it that he needs, and it is unusuable as it is. I would like to either replace the KB, or unplug it and use an external KB.\015\012\015\012MY PROBLEM....I can't figure out how to get at the KB. I have taken out all the obvious screws, but can't get the KB cover off. I have torn into several Dell Laptops, which have their own problems, but just can't seem to get this one. I would REALLY like to find a service manual, but have not been able to find one.\015\012\015\012Suggestions? \015\012\015\012Thx, \015\012\015\012Ron\015

Answers :

Not really sure about this. but I did take apart some of the compaq and hp laptops.
\015\012take all of the attachment off. battery, CD drive Memories, Floppy drive.
\015\012look very carefully into the slot. there should have very small screws attached to the cover or the buttom cover.
\015\012look at the keyboard, there should have two blank key spot at the buttom of the keyboard, one on each side, (equal distance from the end of the keyboard) insert a small screw driver and very carefuly push it toward the back of laptop and lift it at the same time.
I don't think any screws come out of that laptop to get the keyboard out. Look at the very top edge of the keyboard for some release tabs, they are small, to release the keyboard.
