Accidents happen… Who has never spilled their coffee or tea on the computer keyboard?

How do you remove the keyboard from the laptop?

You will see that it is very simple manipulation. So, of course, every computer is different. However, disassembling the keyboard remains the same for all laptops… except for one detail.

Sometimes you have to undo the two screws that are behind the battery of some laptops, then the procedure remains the same.

“Why does the procedure remain the same, while in some PCs there are screws behind the battery, and in others not?”

The same, quite simply because, in all cases, you will have to remove your battery as well as the power cable to proceed with the disassembly of the keyboard.

If, when removing the battery, you see two screws, unscrew them. Otherwise, all you have to do is follow the steps designated below:

These clips are kind of tiny notches that make them easier to handle. When you unclip them, the keyboard pops out.

There are six of them, and they are located behind the tabulation key (TAB / or two arrows in the opposite direction) and to the right of the key: ESC, F4, F8, F12, Del. as well as the End key.

  1. First of all, you have to turn off and unplug your PC.
  2. Then locate all the clips.
  3. Release the clips by gently pushing the screwdriver (as far as possible) back and the spring below the keyboard will instantly eject it.
  4. Make sure all clips are open.
  5. Pull the keyboard towards you.

You will notice that the thread is held on a small tab. Press it gently with the screwdriver, it will come off immediately. And there you have it,

How to reassemble it?

It’s just as easy to put it back together. Here are the 03 steps to follow:

  1. Position the keyboard.
  2. Put the tab right side up.
  3. Integrate the keyboard into the small notches and finally snap the clips.

What is the reason for dismantling a keyboard?

  • Clean the keys.
  • Replace a faulty keyboard.
  • Want a more efficient keyboard.
  • The keys are blocked or deleted.
  • Not wanting to resort to stickers.
  • The touchpad no longer works.
  • Desire a backlit (illuminated) keyboard.
  • Do not be used to the QWERTY keyboard or the reverse (AZERTY).
  • Want to adapt it to gaming.
  • … or others.

Suddenly, you have learned that it is very easy (and quick) to disassemble the laptop keyboard yourself; and at the same time, save up to 70.88$ in handling costs!
