Introduction

The keyboard in the HP Mini 110 is held in by three screws behind the battery, and will easily pop out with a little clever work with the spudger. Removing the keyboard is a must if you need to access any of the internals (except for the memory).

Parts

No parts required.

Power-off the netbook fully before attempting to remove the battery. Flip your netbook upside down, and locate the sliding tabs near the battery. Slide both tabs inward so that the battery visibly moves away from the case of the computer.

    • Pry the keyboard up until it pops out or until you can grab it with your fingers, and then pull gently until it pops out on both sides.

    • Do not pull the keyboard out immediately - there is a potentially fragile ribbon cable that attaches to the motherboard behind the keyboard.

Flip the keyboard over (toward you) by pivoting it about the lower edge, and lay it upside down on top of the touchpad area to reveal the ribbon cable. Lightly pull up on the black tab on top of the keyboard ribbon cable until it hinges toward you and releases the ribbon cable end. Pull the ribbon cable backward and out of the receptacle. This should not require any effort.
