Compaq Presario CQ60 Keyboard install guide


There are some times that you should install a new Compaq Presario CQ60 Keyboard, when the old laptop keyboard broken. It's relatively easy even for inexperienced users. In this article, I'll replace a damaged laptop keyboard with a new one. I mentioned HP Pavilion DV5000 laptop because it has the same body and the Compaq Presario CQ60 Keyboard replacement instructions should be identical for both models.

Before you start, remember to turn off the power, remove the laptop battery and remove the laptop AC adapter. Open up the display as far as it goes. Insert a small flat head screwdriver between the laptop keyboard cover and laptop base and carefully lift up the cover. Continue removing the cover with your fingers.

Remove two screws securing the Compaq Presario CQ60 Keyboard. Carefully lift up the Compaq laptop keyboard from the base and move it up so you can access the keyboard cable. The keyboard is connected to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable. Before you can release the cable and remove the laptop keyboard, the connector must be unlocked. Be very careful. The Compaq Presario CQ60 Keyboard connector is permanently attached to the motherboard. If you accidentally damage the connector, you'll have to replace the whole motherboard.

On the picture below you see the connector in the locked state. The connector opens up like a door. You can open the connector with your fingernail. On the picture below you see the same connector in the unlocked position. Now you can pull the cable from the connector and remove the Compaq Presario CQ60 Keyboard. Replace the damaged keyboard with a new one.
