Laptop Hardware: Keyboard & Hard Drives

The most important component of a laptop (and computer) is the keyboard.  Keyboard layout, configuration varying from laptop to laptop but all provide the same minimum functionality. There will come a time when you will need to repair or replace a key, so note that there are many ways in which they can be removed. Some require screws removed from underneath, or using a credit card tracing its outline and it lifts out from the top.  In all cases, you should first pull the OEM materials to review the laptops schematic and instructions on how it’s built and should be disassembled. Laptop hard drives however are only available in 2.5 inch sized and come in two form factors, they are determine by the number of pins, AND sometimes a protective casing that it sit or slides into. The HDD space varies as well.  It may be accessible from them top or the bottom may be secured in several layers or simply thru its protective encasement which also encloses or exposes its bay of pin connectors.
