Introduzione

This guide will show you how to install a keyboard from the backside of the netbook. You want to replace your keyboard if you are experiencing any keyboard malfunctions, such as a slow or non-existent response from the keyboard to the computer. The keyboard does not require too much disassembly of the laptop, and it should take no time at all to repair.

  • Once you have removed the screws, flip the netbook over so that the keyboard is now facing upwards. Open the screen as far back as the netbook allows.

  • Be careful when removing the plastic casing.

  • After removing the plastic casing surrounding the keys, carefully lift the full keyboard from the netbook using a plastic opening tool.

  • Do not yank the keyboard out. The keyboard is attached to the netbook through a ribbon cable, which needs to remain undamaged in order for the new keyboard to properly connect with the netbook.

  • Be very gentle with the ZIF connector! It is designed to be locked into the motherboard, so make sure you lift the retaining latch before attempting to disconnect it.

  • Lift the latch on the ZIF (zero insertion-force) connector using a plastic opening tool. The ZIF connector is located on the motherboard and is connected to the keyboard through the ribbon cable.

  • Disconnect the ribbon cable from the ZIF connector on the motherboard by lifting it up and out; this completely removes the keyboard.
