  • Unscrew the screw for the bottom case located in the RAM compartment.

Falta um passo, pois nos modelos COMPAQ MINI 110, existe um parafuso que segura o teclado, que se encontra bem escondido dentro da cavidade que encaixa a bateria.

  • Remove the three screws in the silver tabs at the back of the keyboard. The red circles show where they are located at the back of the base under the screen.

3 screws in red circles are actually on metal tabs in the battery compartment, 1 deeper than the other 2. There is a keyboard symbol for each of the 3 screws.

Step 8B: Lift out keyboard by pushing upwards on the 2 accessible metal tabs. This is the most difficult step. Lack of Quality Control during assembly may prevent the kevboard from lifting out without breaking!!

This step may be performed after battery removal. Use care when removing ribbon cable: the white clips holding the black plastic "keeper" are fragile. Reassembly possible without white clips; however, jostling may cause the ribbon to come free.
