laptop keyboard repair and replacement

laptop keyboard repairSince the keyboard is the part of any computer which is used most, and gets by far the most wear and tear, many users have problems with their laptop keyboards after a few years of use. Fortunately, laptop keyboard repair is actually nothing particularly complicated and it does not have to be very expensive either. However, as is always the case in laptop computers, replacing a component is always more complicated as it is in a desktop PC due to the fact that everything is integrated.

The problem with laptop keyboard repair is that the keyboard component of your computer is completely integrated, and laptop keyboards are generally only made for the specific model that there are integrated into. This means that you can’t simply go out and buy new keyboard and install it yourself, as you can with a desktop computer. Also, the connections are much more complicated, and in order to replace a laptop keyboard, you often have to dismantle the whole machine, which is something that would usually void your warranty if you try to do it yourself. This job is one that is certainly best left to the experts since they will have the right components and level of knowledge at their disposal.

Normally laptop keyboard key replacement is impossible, and you will need a completely new keyboard even if just one or two of the keys are not working. However, laptop keyboard replacement should not be expensive, as the components are quite cheap. If you try to replace the keyboard yourself, there are two major challenges that can make it impossible.

Firstly, you will need to find the right keyboard for your laptop. This will require a lot of luck in most cases, and generally, it is impossible to obtain one. This is because you simply can’t buy laptop keyboards from most online retailers, and your best bet would be to buy one from one of the online auction sites, where people are selling off parts of broken laptops for spares and repairs. However, this, by definition, is unreliable.

However, even if you have been lucky enough to find the right keyboard for your laptop, installing it is not easy. All laptop designs are different, but generally, you will need to dismantle the case of the computer, and remove a lot of wires. Not only will this void your warranty in almost all cases, but you might end up unwittingly damaging your system further. For laptop repair and maintenance experts, this is, however, a quick and easy job.

There are also some cases where you might not actually need a complete keyboard replacement. Sometimes water damage or dirt underneath the keys can be causing issues between the contacts. Sometimes the computer simply needs to be dismantled by an expert, and then thoroughly cleaned out with pressurised air. However, this is also something that the average user should not try to attempt, because putting everything back together after you have dismantled it can lead to further problems.
