The main reason for laptop keyboard failure is moisture damage through environmental humidity or air condition moisture.

We can either repair your laptop keyboard or replace your laptop keyboard.In case of laptop repair, we will first have to perform diagnosis on your laptop keyboard. For replacement of your laptop keyboard we have to check whether your laptop keyboard is a legacy keyboard or a riveted keyboard.Legacy keyboards take 30 minutes for replacement.

In case of a riveted keyboard the below steps will need to be performed

  1. In this case we do a complete disassembly of your laptop.

  2. We will have to disconnect the motherboard, battery, heatsink, ram, processor and then we will work on the keyboard.

  3. There are hundred rivets; fifty on the metal plate and fifty on the keyboard.

  4. Rivets will have to be desoldered in the removal process and resoldered  in the installation of the new keyboard. This process takes 8 hours.

To prevent recurrence, we recommend to check wall power sockets for correct polarity. We do not recommend to use power directly from wall sockets nor through spike guards but solely through surge protectors. To keep moisture at bay, it is advisable to store your laptop when not in use (night) in your laptop bag along with a moisture prevention kit to get 70% moisture protection or in an airtight plastic storage container with a moisture prevention kit to get 99% moisture protection.

Why is my laptop keyboard behaving weird?

  1. Is your laptop keyboard doing any of the below

  2. One or a few keys is being pressed repeatedly

  3. One or a few keys don't work

  4. My browser is auto scrolling

  5. Beeping sound at startup

  6. These are all signs of shorting on your laptop keyboard. This is not a mechanical failure of your keyboard, but of a moisture damage. Moisture damage is caused either by a liquid spill, humidity(atmospheric moisture) in the air or rain. If this is not acted upon as soon as possible, the shorting will damage the motherboard and cause it to go dead. Here at Laptop Service Center Malad Mumbai  we not only fix the shorting and replace the keyboards, we also teach prevention and offer a moisture prevention kit to prevent recurrence.

Riveted laptop keyboards are bothersome to replace. The keyboard is held to the case via a metal plate as well as many plastic posts that come through the keyboard itself that are melt-riveted on. Heat is applied to a bunch of plastic posts that stick up through the keyboard itself and the metal plate and heat is applied to make the post tips mushroom out and hold it all in place. In addition to replacing the keyboard one must remove the motherboard as well. Here at Laptop Service Center Malad Mumbai, We repair riveted keyboards.
