    Doing surgery on my laptop

    I'm going to do some surgery on my laptop now....going to try and fix the keyboard

    hmm, well, i managed to take all of the screws out....then kinda peek inside one i blew some compressed air in to my laptop...but that's about all I could do. There must be some invisible "gateway" button that opens up the laptop magically or something, and I don't feel like cracking my laptop in half trying to get it open, so I guess i'm stuck with a usb keyboard, heh.

    depends... sometimes there's a 'secret' way to get into a laptop, but you probably have a 'leave this alone or it breaks' model that you have to send back to the company so they can replace it...

    Well Jverkoey as i told you in the PM before with my own laptop it works but with me the 'secret way' is very easy i have some 'K' (keyboard) screws at the back which allows me to just lift out the whole keyboard...

    Did you try looking on your laptop manufacturers website for disassembly instructions?
