M100 Keyboard disassembly
« on: February 04, 2015, 09:54:49 AM »
Below is a diagram for the removal of a M100 keyboard, if you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us and we can walk you through the process as well.


First you will need to remove the screws indicated below: *Please note the size of the screws and the locations they are in. (Fig. 1)


(Fig. 1)

Once you have removed the screws you can now lift the back panel up exposing the motherboard/battery. Remove the hard drive, battery and Screws indicated below(Fig. 2)

(Fig. 2)

Now you should see the back side of the keyboard (Fig. 3) Carefully open the laptop so that its at a 90 degree angle.  Flip the M100 on it's side, so the laptop sits open, and push your thumb through the hole against the bottom of the keyboard.  It will require a little pressure to get the keyboard to pop out since there is double sided tape. Once the keyboard has been pried slightly loose, start pulling on that same corner on the other side of the keyboard. You should now have the keyboard snapped out and the ribbon cable exposed, the arrows in Fig.4 indicate the direction you will want to push the two corners tabs and location of the ribbon cable.

Once you have swapped the new keyboard please follow the steps backwards.
