Replace Keyboard Amilo SI 2636

Which screw on the back allows you to remove the keyboard? Have found where to unlink it from the front (top to esc/f1, f8 and delete/pause keys). Also are there any hinges on the side or bottom of the keyboard? It looks as if flat-blade screwdriver pushed back will unlink it.

I don't know this model, but often the screw is labeled "K/B" on the back (given there is one at all).

Sigh...I did look for possible indications and none of the screws is marked. I think it will be a test it and see exercise. Does anyone know how to access keyboard on this model in order to replace it? Many thanks.

Hi

came across this when looking for info on this model myself. Fujitsu certainly don't make it easy! Ok how to remove... basically remove the screws on the back around the middle of the machine. The ones around the side are for the case so ye can leave those if you wish. Flip over the machine and open the lid

ok the next bit is tricky get a fine flat blade screw driver and very carefully use it to ease the keyboard forward towards the front of the machine. This will reveal that there is 4 or 5 tiny clips which will depress when pressed. If you push the center one back and gently ease the keyboard upwards with the small screw driver and then use a second to press the clips on either side back then the keyboard will lift out.

You can then unclip the data cable and remove the keyboard. Probably one of the worst designs I've seen in 15+ years of working with computers and also Fujitsu's policy of not giving assembly/service manuals out to engineers is a disgrace.

I'll be doing a step by step with images in the next day or so and will post back when done....
