Because My notebook having problem recently and I suspect that it’s keyboard that causing the problem, I decided to try disassembling and try to do some cleaning. I hope with some cleaning it will work again.
The problem start when I turn on My notebook, it will produce a ‘biiipp..’ sound and slow booting. When the Microsoft Windows started, I open Notepad application and try to type all the characters. I found out that the ‘]’ key doesn’t work.
Today I bring My notebook to the office as I don’t have any screwdriver at My boarding house. I already print the guidelines to disassamble the keyboard from HP – Hewlet Packard – Website. It seems so easy if I read the guidelines as it’s not much steps to be done to disassamble the keyboard, but I have difficulty when trying to open the notebook casing.
I tried several times to open the casing and at last I managed it. After that I test My notebook by unplug the keyboard wire from the motherboard and turn on My notebook. Everything went smooth. I plug in an USB keyboard and I can type all characters. I test several times by turn off the notebook and turn it on again, everything work well if I unplug the notebook’s keyboard.
Now I’m sure that the keyboard is broken. Damn! that thing will cost Me 1,1 million Rupiah :(( ForÂ the time beingÂ I unplug the notebook keyboard and use external USB keyboard.
