Barring any kind of accidental damage, your laptop’s keyboard and touchpad are the parts that start to show wear as soon as you use them. Not only are they some of the only moving parts left in modern laptop design, they’re the ones that are constantly being touched by us fleshy humans, absorbing tiny amounts of skin oil and wearing away the legends on the keys. After a year or so, the keyboard deck can start to look noticeably aged.
But there’s good news: because it’s one of the parts that frequently malfunctions, many laptop keyboards are designed to be removed and replaced with relative ease. The touchpad assembly (usually integrated with the keyboard deck itself) can often be replaced as well. If you can track down the parts and you have a little patience, it’s possible to make your laptop look like new for a fraction of the cost of replacing the whole thing.

Ready? Let’s get started.
Service manuals are guides that manufacturers produce for the benefit of their in-house technicians or licensed service agents. They include step-by-step instructions on the most common repairs, including replacing the keyboard and touchpad assembly. You’re going to want one.
The bad news is that these service manuals aren’t available for each and every machine. In fact, the newer a laptop is, the less likely it is that the service manual is floating around. The good news is that the ones that are available are generally posted for free online in a standard PDF format. Sometimes they’re even hosted by the company itself, as is the case with the Lenovo ThinkPad I’m using for my demonstration machine. Once you’ve found the one that corresponds to your laptop model, just load it up into a phone, laptop, or another computer to guide you as you work. If you have no other options, you can always print out the specific pages you need to follow.Read More...
