How do i replace my keyboard on Toshiba Satellite 1135-S155

Hi,

 

I have been searching the web for hours trying to find directions on how to replace my keyboard on a Toshiba Satellite 1135-S155 with no luck. Can someone please describe to me how to do this? Or point me to some directions "for this model"?

 

Thanks so much!

Kathy,

Check out this site with Toshiba laptop disassembly instructions.

 

Keyboard removal steps are very similar for most laptops.

 

As an example, take a look at the guide for Satellite A35 (I think it looks like your laptop).
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a35/complete-disassembly-1.htm

 

The keyboard removal instructions are shown in steps 11-14.

 

Be careful with the keyboard connecto on the motherboard, do not break the locking clip: http://laptopforums.toshiba.com/t5/Keyboards-Touchpads/Keyboard-connector-damaged-while-replacing-ke...

 

Good luck!

Hi,

 

Yeah, unfortunately the guides for the A35 model do not show how to get the top plate off. Mine is a metal strip (other guides show plastic) and my concern is trying to locate where the tabs are(if any). It has never been apart before so i am sure it is going to give some resistance, however; i don't want to force it and break something.

 

Some of the guides & videos i have seen tell you certain areas to lift first, Ex. under the F1 key or to start at one side, or the middle, etc. I was just hoping to avoid added issues by knowing which way to attack it. :smileysurprised:

 

I will keep looking around for other tutorials for the A35 model and see if I can find something, I will re-post if i find something that will work.

 

Thanks again

Kathy

The guide shows how to remove the keyboard bezel, but it's on the second page (step 11). I guess you missed the second page of the guide.
