Keyboard removal and installation - ThinkPad A30/p, A31/p
Removing the keyboard
In step 5 , open the keyboard slightly in the direction of the arrow.
In step 6 , draw the keyboard a little in the direction the arrow, then detach the connector as shown in step 7.
Installing the keyboard
Attach the connector.
Make sure that the keyboard edges, shown in the figure as (A) and (B), are under the frame.
Press the keys indicated by arrows to latch the keyboard firmly in place.
To make sure that the front side of the keyboard is housed firmly, insert your fingers into the left and right slots of the Ultrabay; then, with your fingers in those slots, gently press the shift keys with your thumbs and try to slide the keyboard towards you. Do not push hard on parts (A) and (B) on the keyboard; to do so might distort the Ultrabay slots.
Replace the screws, using the new screws provided with the keyboard.
