    Hello so my Laptop's keyboard is messed up and decided to replace it with a new one. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find a guide on how to remove my Laptop's Keyboard. Does anyone know how to remove the keyboard for the Sager NP8173?


    EDIT: In case someone wishes to know my reason for replacing it, my "w" key seems to be stuck after letting go. Tested on notepad and holding the w key for at least 5 or 10 seconds and the "w" continues holding for like 2.5 seconds.

    So basically I remove those 2 screws from the bottom and poke it out from the bottom? it feels like I am going to pierce my keyboard doing that. Also the Laptop seems to be a bit different than mine, but I'm assuming its the same method?

    It's the same chasis I believe. You can also check on the screwholes for keyboard icons. But yes, you'll have to poke the keyboard out through those holes. Check all holes for keyboard icons, once you removed those screws you can then poke it out. It will take a little strenght to push it out.

    Yes, @Danishblunt is correct, you push it out from the bottom. I wouldn't bother taking the whole case off though, on the 670 there are the two screws and the third hole that you actually use to push the keyboard out, with the rest of the panel staying on. They should all be labeled.

    Under the key cap there's a small rubber dome that is responsible for pushing the key back up after pressing it. Seems like it's a bit dirty and won't 'flop' back in form as easily. You could remove the cap and clean it with a bit of alcohol or the like.

    Just be gentle removing the cap so as not to break any clips.

    uhm... how exacly is that a problem? Those "rubber domes" as you call them are not meant to be glued on, they are actually loose or slightly glued on in some cases. Also why do you bother with the old keyboard if you purchased a new one anyways?

    Also if you want to repair the w key, use isopropylalcohol 99%, clean the key, rubber and the keyboard (obviously with no power in the keyboard), then put it all together and u got a normal keyboard again.
