HOWTO: Replace Keyboard on Laptop Computer (HP dv6105)

EDIT 2011/05/06: Wow! So this post alone has passed 100,000 views. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the comments. I don’t always have time to reply to all of the questions in the comments, but I’m glad this post has been helpful to so many!

Since I recently had to replace a keyboard on a laptop, and couldn’t find any resources on replacing it for this model, I thought I’d go ahead and do a run-through for anyone else who may need this.

Okay, to start with, you’ll need:

  • Replacement keyboard (Part# 431414-001)
  • Phillips Head Screwdriver
  • Flat Head Screwdriver (for prying off cover)

Step 1

Step 1: Remove RAM cover and Battery

Step 3

Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws securing the RAM cover, and set it aside. Then remove the battery as well.

Step 4

Step 2: Remove Necessary Screws

There are a total of eight screws that you’ll need to remove to get to the keyboard: Five black screws, and three smaller silver screws.

Step 6 - Which screws to remove

You’ll see a keyboard icon next to the three lower screws:

Step 5 - Keyboard Screws

Step 7 - Screws Taken Out

And these are what you should end up with after removing the screws.

Step 3: Remove Keyboard Shield

Step 8 - Pop off keyboard guard

Next, we’ll have to remove the shield that holds the keyboard in place. You can do this using the Flathead screwdriver, fingernails, or a coin.

Step 9 - Cover popped up

You’ll pop them up like the image above on both sides.

Step 10 - Cover off

Once you get the cover up, be careful not to damage the flex cables beneath it.

Step 4: Remove Keyboard

Step 10 - Removing Keyboard 1

Now that you have the shield loose, you can now remove the keyboard. There is another flex cable connecting the keyboard, so don’t pull too far up on the keyboard just yet.

Step 11 - Careful with Ribbon Cable

Carefully work the cable out of its slot by pulling back towards the screen.

Step 13 - Remove ribbon cable

Now you’ve got the keyboard removed, and you’re ready to reinstall the new one. Almost there!

Step 12 - Keyboard removed

Step 5: Install the New Keyboard

Step 14 - Reinsert ribbon cable

First, carefully insert the new cable into the slot. Be careful not to damage it, the cables are fragile.

Update: “The connector slot has a lever the pins are connected to the white box and the black lever at the bottom of the white box can be pulled towards the screen. This will loosen the keyboard cable. If you press that black lever back it will fix the cable.” Thanks, alex for the tip!

Step 15 - Reinsert the keyboard

Now, place the keyboard back down inside the case.

Step 17 - back latches of cover

Now we’ll replace the shield. Push backwards toward the screen to make sure the back latches set in place correctly, then pop the sides back down into the case until you feel them lock.

Step 16 - Pop covers back on

Step 6: Close It All Back Up

Now that you’ve got the keyboard back on, flip it back over onto its back, and reinstall all eight screws.

Step 18 - Small screws go here

Don’t forget, the three small screws go here, under the battery.

Step 6 - Which screws to remove

Now, we’ll put the RAM cover back on…

Step 19 - Recover RAM cover and battery

…and put the battery back in.

And that’s it! As long as you’ve got the cable plugged in correctly, it should work with no problems.

Step 20 - Done!

      Incredible! Whoo-hoo. This clear, precise and perfectly illustrated DIY info allowed a this 53 year old techno-amateur to fearlessly change out a keyboard successfully. Only comment, getting the connection cable in was a bit of a pain and I didn’t lock it down right the first time so Alex’s advice was needed. Worked the second time.

      I read two-three other sets of directions on how to do this but this was by far the best. I don’t understand why HP couldn’t have provided the how-to but it still wouldn’t/couldn’t have been at this quality.

      BTW, the model I used these directions for was dv6500.

      thank-you I just put on new keyboard on my computer, I bought a skin to go over the keys. Hopefully it will keep my children from pulling off the keys. but I cant figure out how to put it on. do you have any suggestions how to do it?

      Kevin…… that was a great posting, with pics you did on replacing a keyboard…. just one correction ya mite want to pass on…. when removing the ribbon. never pull or wiggle the ribbon toward the screen to remove it…instead , with a small tool like a pick or your finger nail…… release the little black keeper that holds the ribbon locked in under pressure for a reason….. pulling it to free it damages the end of the ribbon…. besides, u need to remove or release it to get the ribbon back into its slot…. then re lock the little black keeper, by sliding it ,on top of the ribbon end, toward the white block…. Note the black keeper has two diff surfaces… one has an off set.the other is flat…. the flat goes up toward you……. the off set side will not wedge the ribbon in tight and will slip back out very easy…. took me awhile to figure this out also….. they are so small lol….. Note.. the touch pad ribbon is a bit diff… least was on my zd8000…. the keeper and ribbon are MUCH smaller !.. and it is released by just lifting up with your finger nail. it pivots up like a hinge. making it unnessary to remove the keeper… just reinsert the ribbon end. and pivot it back down…..the point im making here is: NEVER just wiggle or pull on a zif ribbon to remove it ! we both are just helping, ok..not trying or meaning to step on your toes Kevin….

      Kevin, I can’t thank you enough for showing us to replace a keyboard. I just did in under 20 minutes. My cat was loving tap dancing on my keyboard and ultimately destroyed all the keys so I really needed to replace one and although I was a little nervous trying, I did it and am glad for it.

      What you did in showing us was the best.

    You rock! My 2 1/2 yo son pulled almost every key off my wifes keyboard. I ordered a new keyboard but of course no instructions. I knew that this could be easy, or a real pain. Without your very accurate and detailed directions this would have taken me all night. Ten minutes! It seems that only fair that I should mention that my son’s name is Kevin. How appropo.

    I have a similar lap top, the problem is the screen just blurs up from time to time. I have been told that it could be the Flex Cable for screen? DO any you have any ideas on how to get at the flex cable or is this even the problem.


  16. 21 Kevin
    May 12, 2008 at 7:08 AM


    Unfortunately, I have no idea on how to get to that cable. I was lucky to make it in enough to replace the keyboard without screwing it up, haha. :D

    It’s possible that is your problem though. One thing you could do, just to ensure it’s a problem with the screen, is to plug an external monitor up to it and see if the problem persists.

    Great tutorial. I linked to these instructions from my blog.
    I’m creating same kind of tutorials for Toshiba laptops, you can find them at http://www.irisvista.com
    Should be useful for all Toshiba owners.
    Disassemble your laptop at your own risk!

    ****, as soon as I saw my laptop’s conection, I found out why the keyboard isnt working… mother ****** that sold me this PC had already ****** up with it inside…
    The idiots superglued the keyboard cable to the conection, now I cant get it out without actually damaging the inlet…
    Any tips on what to do?

    Thanks very much, very good article.


  24. 30 Kevin
    June 27, 2008 at 7:31 PM

    Ah man. Lucas, that sucks, did you buy it from someone online or local? Regardless, I really don’t know what to suggest, unless perhaps they make some sort of solvent for superglue that you could try, but I wouldn’t know for sure if that would work.

    • 31 Geoffrey
      January 29, 2011 at 10:08 AM

      Nail Polish Remover has always been the crazy Glue cure (should one get it on theri skin. Of course I am not sure how it would work on computer parts, but it wounds like you have nothign to lose. :-)

  25. 32 Lucas
    June 27, 2008 at 9:39 PM

    Thanks for answering,
    I managed to yank it out, but the inlet is completely ruined. It was actually already ruined (thats why they superglued it). This sort of thing isn’t just replaceable because the thing is welded to the mother board, so this means I’m gonna have to take it to someone who knows how to replace this sort of thing..
    Well, thanks anyway man.

    Thanks for these useful infos. Can you please help me on this? My DV 6000 keyboard is not working, for example: the C, V, B, X, Z are not working, what should I do before thinking of changing the keyboard? Thanks

  30. 37 Kevin
    July 21, 2008 at 2:38 PM

    Kine, first thing that I would try is to just unplug the keyboard and plug it back in. You’d be amazed how often that fixes things. Otherwise your best bet probably will be to get a replacement keyboard. Make sure to keep ahold of the old one though, as you can usually* use the old keys as replacements, should you need them later.

    *sometimes these keyboards have different types of key connectors, in which case you couldn’t use them for replacements.

    Outstanding directions and photos for replacing the keyboard. Thank you for your time, effort, and for making this information available. I replaced my neighbors keyboard on her hp dv6000 after the shift key broke off the original keyboard. These instructions are an awesome guide. After new keyboard installed and reassembling I fired up the laptop with no issues. Now she can post those LOL’s she has been missing. Thanks again.

    the connector slot has a lever the pins are connected to the white box and the black lever at the bottom of the white box can be pulled towards the screen. this will losen the keyboard cable. if you press that black lever back it will fix the cable of course. but thanks for the howto was a lot of usefull information

    So, can i change the keypad to American version?????
    does it work .

  45. 53 Kevin
    September 5, 2008 at 8:51 PM

    Batman, that’s actually a very good question. I certainly couldn’t tell you for sure, but this is the scenario I would imagine:

    You replace the keyboard with an American keyboard, assuming the connectors are the same, and then you should be able to change your regional settings in the Control Panel to US settings. In theory, that should switch the layout over, it’s just a question of whether the two pieces of hardware would be compatible.

  63. 72 Kevin
    December 3, 2008 at 11:54 PM

    Izzah Abrar,

    The easiest place to find them as far as I’m aware is eBay. If you take out the keyboard, HP should have a sticker with the part number, you could try searching for that part number on Google Shopping, and see what stores come up that sell it.

    Ed above suggested brilliantstore.com. I’ve never been or purchased from there, so I cannot make a recommendation, but it might be worth checking out as well.

    Thank-you soo much for posting this. I dropped my laptop on the concrete and the keyboard functions went absolutely wonky. F5 would refresh websites my keys stuck and than completely stopped working. I had to use a seperate keyboard jsut to use the computer, and it would still refresh all the time and hit random numbers. I took it in to a computer store and they quoted me at minimum $400. I cant afford it considering x-mas is here. I bought the piece for $10 and another $10 shipping and handling from China haha. With your instructions and pictures I did my first computer fix it job in 15 minutes. (after i had to buy a new screwdriver cause mine was stripped haha)

    I just wanted to say thank-you. Without people like yourself posting these things I would have paid out the rear end for this! Thank-you very much!!

    oh also the connector level tip was great!! it took me a second to figure out which to move to use it, but once I knew to move the black pieces on the side of the white piece up towards the screen, it took me all of 5 seconds to put my whole comp back together! You guys are worth more than HP themselves! Thanks again

    You saved me $300.00. The reason for this is that my daughter dropped her HP laptop and the keyboard was not working, but everything else was. I thought it was just a loose wire, but wasn’t sure. Anyway, the warranty had expired just 4 days prior to the accident, and HP would not honor extending it. So I decided to trouble shoot it using your guidance, and indeed the keyboard wire was out of place. I simply connected the wire, buttoned everything back according to your instructions, and voila. It now works. Thanks for taking the time to post your easy to follow and instructions, and for saving me money.

    Kevin, thank you so very much for this tutorial! These directions were very easy to follow.

    I know when I accidentally broke off some of these keys, I couldn’t find any easy/cheap way to get those few keys replaced. Everyone said I would have to send it in, which would cost money I just don’t have. For over a year I didn’t have any key covers on those keys – just had to use the rubber nubby things.

    Now, with your help, I got a keyboard off of ebay (only 18 dollars – not bad) and just installed the new keyboard. I’m typing on it right now, actually, lol, and it works great. Plus I saved a lot of money in the process. Hurray for not needing to feel embarrassed anymore when I use this laptop in public!

    Thanks again for the tutorial!

    Excellent photos and helpful Photoshops! Applied your knowledge to a V5305. Only had to remove two screws under the battery instead of the pile necessary in the later models. From all the user comments it looks like you’ve helped a lot of people. Kudos to you!

    I’m a regular nobody. No talent, nothing. For $20.00 (replacement keyboard on e-bay) and $2.00 for a little, tiny screwdriver and your FABULOUS directions, I replaced my keyboard and my computer now works perfectly. God Bless you. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!

    This site looks great and I need to replace my dv6000 keyboard, do you have a recommendation for a site where I can buy a replacement keyboard? HP wants $80 for it, and I get a little nervous ordering from random sites based out of Hong Kong.


    • 93 Kevin
      February 18, 2009 at 11:27 PM

      Thanks Brendan! I don’t really have any recommendations other than eBay, that’s where I usually find stuff like this. Here is a link to one for $25 and free shipping that ships from California, and there’s several others on there. Just do a search for “HP dv6000 keyboard” and you’ll find plenty of results (most from Hong Kong though, haha).

    Two weeks I ago my keyboard overdosed on a California Merlot. Seeking a rehabilitation expert I found your website. I ordered a new keyboard that promised to abstain from grape juice. Lo and behold the new installation when vety smoothly and now I can “backspace”, “delete” and even use the space bar. Thanks for the excellent instructions. I think I’ll toast myself.

    Excellent instructions. Top row of keys (Y, U, I, O, P, etc) on our HP dv6000 stopped working. I found your instructions on the web and then ordered a keyboard (~$35) from Amazon. Keyboard surgery took me 20 – 25 minutes to complete. Computer works great and saved me from buying a new one!

    Thanks and highly recommend these instructions.

    Hi, thanks for this, took me like 20 minutes to do it and it was easy as pie. One question though, have you ever run into the problem of the power button shield not going back in place perfectly? The right side snapped in fine but the left side won’t snap back in. The keyboard/laptop works fine no problem, its just an eyesore to have that unevenness on the left side.


    • 101 Kevin
      March 6, 2009 at 11:33 AM


      I’d suggest taking it back off and realigning it again. Make sure there aren’t any cables or anything bunched up and in the way, and try to push the back corners closest to the hinge into place first. It’s sort of tricky to get back on.

  88. 102 James
    March 6, 2009 at 5:48 PM


    I did have the same problem as well, all I really did was make sure you push a little harder on the edge that is closer to the monitor that swoops down. Took a little bit but it all snapped in nicely, I would also make sure its snapped good in the center as well.

    Thanks! I just had to replace my HP Pavilion’s keyboard and this really helped!

    One thing I would point out, the two screws near the corners (top of the photo) don’t need to be removed. I couldn’t get one of them out so I left them in and I could get the shield and keyboard out fine.

  95. April 28, 2009 at 11:35 AM


    I mean, I would have figured it out… but it’s good to see someone who knows what to do and wrote about it. I’ll give it a try.

    Any idea how to find the part number for my dv7? I live in Barbados BTW, not the US.

    • 111 Kevin
      April 28, 2009 at 5:51 PM

      I don’t have an HP part number (what exact model do you have?) but if you search any local online stores for HP dv7 keyboards, you should find one. Post back your model and I’ll try to locate that part number though.

    You saved my laptop. I was trying to pry the laptop apart by myself after removing all screws – I am convinced I was about five minutes away from completely wrecking it. Then I stumbled onto your instructions which worked perfectly with one exception. The Alex comments about the connector are close but not what I observed. The white connector is flanked by two little black things. Those black things should be slid toward the lid which enables you to remove the keyboard cable without having to yank. Then make sure those little black things are slid toward the screen when inserting the cable for the new keyboard. Then, once it’s inserted, those black things get slid the opposite way (away from the screen) to properly seat the cable.
    That’s it – works perfectly. FYI – that was on a pavilion dv6000. vivotechnology.net carries these keyboards and they are inexpensive and I received mine the next day.

    Thank you again Kevin – you rock.

    I use this laptop 4 work , can’t get 2 letters to work on it. letter B4 G and letter B4 z… now, husband states I have to replace the whole board but it’s just the 2 letters, can’t I just replace the membranes or does it have to be the entire board?

    Hi kevin!

    Allwent well with the switch hpwever the new keyboard has certain keys not working. Would this be instalation related or haddware related?

  103. 119 Kevin
    June 29, 2009 at 5:33 AM

    Sorry for the late responses.

    Michelle, the easiest method would certainly be to replace the entire board. I don’t even know that it’s possible to buy individual keys.

    Anthony, more than likely hardware related. I’m not an electrician by any stretch, but you may be able to use a multimeter to test the keys individually? Alternatively, try unplugging and reseating the ribbon cable connection. If you happen to have another computer you can test it in, that could be an option as well.

    Best Wishes,

    I’d imagine that the reason you get so much traffic is that the dv6000 is set to self-destruct one part at a time beginning the day after the warranty expires (grr). From one who has lost two and a half keyboards to kids so far, this time I got smart and ordered a silicone skin for the keyboard. Got it on eBay for less than $4 with free shipping from Hong Kong. Only problem is, no instructions- any ideas?


    • 131 Carrie
      July 18, 2009 at 6:04 PM

      On second review, it appears that the silicone skin just rests on top of the keyboard. Huh. we’ll see how it goes. Thanks again for the instructions, I’ve missed r and t, and most recently h and v…


      • 132 Kevin
        July 18, 2009 at 6:09 PM


        Ouch, yeah it does seems sometimes that these things self-destruct at the end of warranty, doesn’t it? Interesting about the silicone skin, I’m not sure exactly what it is you’re talking about, but hopefully it stays on tightly, if it’s just resting atop the keyboard.

        Best of luck to you!

    July 30, 2009 at 5:53 AM

    Thanks for putting this all on-line. My cat trashed the keyboard on my dv9700. The screws are somewhat different – I took out 6 silver screws and 3 black ones, then three screws inside, on the top of the keyboard.

    For the cable “zif” connector, I took 2 small flat bladed screw drivers and pushed the small black tabs on the sides back towards the screen. Then the cable fits right in, after folding it. Push the black tabs back towards the front and the cable is snugged in.

    I wonder if anyone makes a replacement keyboard that is more durable…

    Thanks again!

  115. July 30, 2009 at 9:50 PM

    Thanks Kevin! Your amazing post helped my buddy and me fix a keypad problem that I had. The instructions and the photographs were detailed and highly informative. Just wanted to let you know that the hard work you have put in has saved the day for someone.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the posting above…I tried to fit my new keyboard into my HP Pavilion dv6835 and it seemed to work the first time..But the delete, right & left cursor, prtsc buttons didnt work. I opened it again and tried connecting the cable again but this time, the qwer keys didnt work…i tried connecting them when the pc was turned on, to see if i could check the connectivity while fixing it. Now none of the keys work except the caps lock button.

    Could you please advise what I should do..? Did i damage the cable while inserting it to the pin? Should I buy another replacement keyboard?

    Please advise.

    This is probably the most useful and accurate tutorial I have ever seen. I am a bed-bound individual that was cringing at the thought of living without my laptop for 2-4 days while a repair person charged me a bundle to replace my keyboard. I found your site and went straight to eBay. $24 later and 15 minutes (I’m slow) and I’m typing this to you on my new keyboard with all lettering intact. Thank you so very much.

    So, now I’m off to play World of Warcraft. Look out, Horde, my “Fire” key works again.

    Thank you! Your directions were fantastic! I have the HP zv6000 which only requires the removal of 5 screws, other than that it’s just the same. Thank you for giving me the courage to give it a try myself! I found my replacement at: http://www.laptoppartsexpert.com- they were fabulous! I purchased my new keyboard for a mere $18 (plus $4.90 shipping). It is a brand new keyboard. Thanks again!!

    Need to replace the power button cable on the dv6000 hp laptop. I can not get the ZIF connection that is under the keyboard to release. It is very fragile and I really don’t want to break it. I have released the ZIF that is connected to the power button under the power button cover. Please advise.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Wow, this seems like a never-ending thread!

    The keyboard on my HP dv6000 went out days after the warranty expired (major beeping at start-up). HP agreed to fix it. The replacement keyboard has a problem with the space key. It has to be hit hard in the middle or it doesn’t work and words run together.

    Might there be anything I can do to fix/seat the space key so it works?

    If not, I have another dv6000 with a cracked screen, so I could take the keyboard from that and use your technique.

    Dear Kevin,

    First of all, an excellent tutorial…. it has helped me and many other evidently…

    But i still had one query…how hard shud i prees the keyboard ribbon back into the connector?
    shud i press hard or just slide it in gently and then lock the black clip?

    Actually very rcently i had this problem where a few keys on the keyboard stopped working, all together… every day a new key wud go off!!…

    when i tried your instructions, the keys not working intially started working again but some other keys stopped working…after repeating the procedure for about 10 times…the entire keyboard has now stopped working :P…i probably went too hard on the keyboard ribbon… I have already placed an order for a new keyboard. but i just neeed to know one single thing that i have reffered above.

    Also, if you know the reasons for my keyboard acting strange, kindky let me know..

    thanks in advance…i wud really appreciate your inputs..)



  126. September 15, 2009 at 7:43 AM

    Thank you for the guide.
    Though the computer is not excactly the same I managed to use it for changing the keyboard on my HP 530 laptop eventhough I thought I had tried removing every single screw before using the guide..

    This was a very well done tutorial and especially the part regarding the insertion of the ribbon. It went in easily by pushing up on the little black plastic lever at the top of the white box. I just replaced the keyboard on an Hp dv6500 and it took less than 10 minutes. Again, thank you for taking the time to help many of us out and I am sure many others in the future.

    Thanks a lot Kevin. This was exactly what I was looking for. The instructions couldn’t get any better (of course, a youtube video would have made it easier to find).

    I got this at Sam’s Club as a clearance item for $150. It was a display, so people had a chance to screw with it, so it was missing 10 keys. HP wouldn’t stand behind it (very unusual for them) and wanted to sell me a new keyboard module for $56. I found it on eBay for $9.95. With the deal from Sam’s, the vendor on eBay and your clear instruction, I have a hell of a computer for even twice the price. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    My 2 year old picked off 25% of the keys from my HP Pavilion dv9208nr notebook. I ordered the replacement from HQRP for $19.99 (with shipping it was about $27.00). I used your guide to remove and install since the models were visually very similar, and it works fine! Thank you very much!!

    I am forever thankful for this post. I am a complete tech newbie and took a risk by purchasing a keyboard on ebay and trying to install it with these directions you posted. Needless to say I am typing to you right now with my new keyboard. It was easy and I did it all in about 20 min thanks to your pictures and directions. Yes inserting the new cable into the slot was a pain because I took a while to locate the black lever that was underneath the white box, but other than that, my installation went without a hitch. I recommend this to any and everyone. Saved me hundreds that would have been lost if I sent it in to HP. Thanks again and keep it up!

I used this for a dv6265us, same keyboard, just a little annoying locking the LCD back into place to screw it in afterwards.

    It looks like it has been a couple of years since you made your tutorial on the keyboard replacement. I too would like to first of all thank you for the trouble you went to and secondly tell you the way you put it together is professional all the way. My niece came to visit with her 5 week old and I watched her pull out her HP DV6000 along with a full blown m/s keyboard + the A/C charger. She told me HP wanted $175 to replace the keyboard. I ordered a new one from “screenaid” on E-bay for a total of $13.79 on a monday and had it in my mailbox on Thurday. I searched You-tube for installation video for quite a while without any luck. I was about to try and find a similar model but Googled it and found yours. My lucky day, not to mention Katie’s as well. 10 minutes tops. This is your calling Kevin! Could not have been any more on target. Now we are waiting for the new battery and she will be back in business.
    Oh, and by the way I told Katie when I removed the old k/board it looked like the remnants of baby formula and a double latte had dried up in there. Thanks again Dano

    Many thanks for your excellent advice and extremely useful photos! Everything went well until I tried to get the keyboard cable reconnected to the white connector. This is in the area of your note:
    First, carefully insert the new cable into the slot. Be careful not to damage it, the cables are fragile.

    Update: “The connector slot has a lever the pins are connected to the white box and the black lever at the bottom of the white box can be pulled towards the screen. This will loosen the keyboard cable. If you press that black lever back it will fix the cable.” Thanks, alex for the tip!
    I tried many times, and each time after assembly the keyboard worked except for a ‘band’ of keys; ty-gh-bn, for instance. Next time it was qw-as-zx. Turned out it was that pesky black ‘lever’, or compression strip.

    I finally tried securing the cable, FIRST

    November 14, 2009 at 7:31 PM

    previous note, continued:

    I used scotch tape to make sure the cable didn’t slip out, then with the scotch tape holding the cable in place I concentrated on getting the black compression ‘lever’ snapped in. Worked like a charm.

    Again, thanks so much for your efforts

    I found two black compression “things” on each side of the white box that the cable connected to. I too had a hard time keeping both of those slid out in the “up” position, while simultaneously inserting the cable completely, but by folding the cable similarly to the old cable I was able to keep it close enough to the box to push it in and then secure it by pushing in the two black slidey “things” on each side. Thanks everyone and especially Kevin!

      November 18, 2009 at 11:17 PM

      Will the clip come off/on the connector if you had one or is it somehow attached perm. and require MB replacement? I’m looking all over for just a clip for you. Good luck.

    Thanks Kevin

    Your pictures were very usefull even I have a HP pavillion 9600. Less screws and there was no need to remove the RAM cover but espacially the way to lose and fasten the cable. My dealer told me a keyboard couldn’t be replaced and no buttons were available. Thanks to a brand new genuine HP keyboard I bought through Ebay ($15,-) my laptop is as new. Many thanks.

    A few tip for 9600 users that read your site.

    1. On the right side of the speakercover is a little clip to losen the cover.
    2. To remove the cable push the 2 little clips next to the connector forward to losen the
    losen the cable.

    Thanks again

    I have an HP 5210. I had a bit more screws to remove but your step by step gave me confidence. The pictures were worth more than 1000 words. I lost the other keyboard to my 2 year old and have had the new keyboard sitting around for almost a year using an external keyboard. I can’t thank you enough, it is funny how some of your friends had jokes, you just have no idea what a blessing you’ve been, but then again you do because look at all the posts!

    Thanks so much for the photos and instructions. I bought my daughter a used HP6707 on ebay and it had a couple keys that seemed stuck down. Prying the key off I noticed that the silicone “tube” on which the keys are mounted (inside the articulated mount) were actually broken and the keys, while they worked, were not bouncing back. I originally just put a little bit of rubber inside to make them the right height but didn’t like the lack of “feel”.
    A new keyboard was less than $20 and it took me, using your great instructions, about 30 minutes to change the keyboard for the new one.
    Thanks again amigo.

    like on the left side (the side the power button is on)
    won’t snap down properly, I dunno what to do, any advice ?

    • February 26, 2010 at 3:59 PM

      April 10, 2011 at 1:51 PM

      Same thing happened to me before I went and fixed it myself. As the one before me said, make sure that there are no cables in the way (I JUST fixed my keyboard right now, and the left side is securely in place…for now, otherwise I’m not fretting, as long as my keyboard works!).

    Thanks for the great tutorial on replacing the laptop keyboard. Mine is still working, but I was starting to have reason for concern. The pics look like a pretty close match for my hp dv9100us. I have replaced screens before, and done some other repairs on laptops, including keyboards, but seeing this for an hp makes all the difference in the world…where those snaps are, which screws, even the whole ‘logic’ of the design, etc. When I’ve repaired corporate machines that’s one thing, when I’m taking ‘baby’ apart that’s another. Very well done.

    Your article got me almost there.., but…, I still didn’t understand the ZIF and LIF. Thought I’d share what I learned. While replacing keyboard on DV6700 had to replace ribbon cable from power button board to system board. For the ZIF connector at the power button board – pull ZIF connector outer plastic edges axially away from connector…, on the sides (white or brown). Cable then comes out with zero force – like several posts above…., I suggest that you dont’ wiggle this end of the cable till you pull the ZIF side plastic pieces out. Ribbon cable can them come out with no effort. Once that end of the old ribbon cable is out of the ZIF connector…, insert new ribbon cable in the ZIF (note which side goes up) with ZIF plastic side pieces out – takes zero force. Once the ribbon cable is “in” the ZIF connector, push plastic side ZIF pieces back in to lock the cable/connector. On the other end of the ribbon cable (at the system board), I found what the manual calls a LIF (Low Insertion Force) connector. After attempting to learn all I could about it.., finally figured out there were no moving parts. Simply pull ribbon cable straight out (opposite of the ZIF where you never pull without the ZIF unlocked). On the LIF…, once the old ribbon cable is out, push new cable into the LIF – will take a “low” amount of force…, should go easy if you use a new cable. I purchased a new cable on ebay for less than $5 (find it on ebay by searching for 431437-001). Good luck

    You should be writing instruction manuals for a living, if you aren’t already doing so. I am writing this on my newly installed keyboard, replacing the one that my dog ruined by clawing some of the keys off of it. It couldn’t have been easier! I am not normally a do-it-yourselfer, so I was a little apprehensive about it, but your instructions made it a breeze. Thank you so much!


  199. September 17, 2010 at 9:05 AM

    Precise details on the ZIF connector that secures the ribbon cable: the cable slides under a black plastic pressure-pad. The pressure-pad is held down by two white T-shaped plastic pegs.

    To release the cable, slide each T-peg away from you (towards the base of the screen). The pressure-pad is then loose, and the cable easily slips out.

    When inserting the new keyboard, slot the front (bottom) edge in first, then with fingernails ease its left and right edges down into the opening. There is slight resistance as the keyboard compresses the fold in the ribbon cable.

The only problem i had was getting the cable back in. What a pain in the rear that was.. After a few swear words i finally managed it, I was trying to push it in under the black clip, not on top… Anyway.. My husband will be so pleased when he comes home and its fixed!!! Thanks!

    Thanks for the tutorial, Kevin. About 10 of my keys stopped working out of the blue so I figured I was due to clean all my keys again. So, I removed all my keys, put them in hot water, and put them back on and they still didn’t work. I got scared I would have to buy another laptop but then I decided to search Amazon for a replacement and found one for $15…what a great deal and it only took me 20 minutes to replace.

    You rock!

    I have an HP Pavilion dv6-2150us and there are (I lost track now but I believe) 3 more screws under the harddrive cover. One of them is right there under the cover, but the other 2 can’t be seen until you actually lift the drive up.

    Now, turning the computer back over (keyboard facing up) there are 3 small metal colored screws that you have to unscrew to get the top of the keyboard out. It is a bit difficult because I could not pop up the front flap all the way, but I held it up just enough to get a small screwdriver in there to losen them, and then I used a small magnet to extract the screws out. I used my wife’s tweezer to place these screws back in after inserting the new keyboard.

    Also make sure you scroll up to read a helpful comment regarding the power strip removal. Don’t yank it. There is a black keeper that pops open toward you!!

    Thanks so much – I think I may have saved my laptop after a slight accident with a glass of water. Everything else worked okay – well the USB hubs don’t have as much power, but a powered hub fixes that.

    I did this on an HP dv8t – the little black connector Alex talked about actually flipped up. It took me a bit to figure it out. Also, the screws were in a couple different locations – but it wasn’t hard to figure out.

    Another thanks for posting this comment. I’ve probably replaced a couple dozen laptop keyboards in my day but couldn’t easily figure out how to get into this one. I wish I had googled first before I pulled out about 20 screws, the memory, hard drive, dvd drive, and battery. Pretty simple once you know which screws to take out, thanks!
