Introduction

This guide will walk you through the steps of replacing the keyboard unit on the Asus Chromebook C300MA-EDU in case of broken or stuck keys. You will also have to replace this part if your mouse track pad has stopped working.

NOTE: On this laptop, the bottom does not pop off, rather the keyboard portion is the part that comes off to grant you access to the inner workings.

  1. Flip the Chromebook onto its back, where there are eleven screws.
    • Flip the Chromebook onto its back, where there are eleven screws.

    • There are two variations of screws on the back panel:

      • Six 8.7mm screws.

      • Five 6.4mm screws.

    • Using your screwdriver with the J00 Phillips Head tip, remove the screws by turning them counter clockwise.

    • Release the connections from the tabs gently by flipping the white flaps up until disconnected.

    • You can now pull the ribbons out from the board and remove the keyboard.
