Removing the Keyboard

With the battery removed from the notebook it is safe to start taking it apart. The screw that had to be removed from the bottom of the P-2000 holds the keyboard in place along with one thin strip of plastic which we'll be removing next.

A flathead screwdriver will probably mark or scratch your notebook so DON'T use one to remove this small plastic spacer tab no matter how tempting it is. Starting at one end, we used a plain old ruler to prop up the plastic spacer and get it come out of the frame.

With one full side of the plastic spacer tab free from the frame it is fairly easy to remove completely. Keep in mind that you want to be careful about this so you don't break the component, or bend it because you are too rough.

When the plastic spacer tab is removed you will be left with a big space in the front of the notebook.

Slide the keyboard down towards the space where the plastic spacer tab was so the aluminum tabs disengage from the top of the frame by the monitor. The keyboard only has to move about a quarter of an inch, but it may be a bit sticky at first.

The Fujitsu's keyboard is attached to the rest of the keyboard so you can't just pick it up and put it aside. Once the three aluminum tabs have disengaged from the frame the keyboard just needs to be flipped over to give you access to the memory socket underneath.

For the sake of your notebook, be careful with the wires leading from the keyboard to the notebook, and if you aren't wearing an anti-static strap don't touch any of the circuit board that pokes through the aluminum shield. To quickly get rid of any ESD you might have, touch something metal, like a waterpipe, metal desk for example.

The two red arrows point the two ares of real interest in this guide. The first one is those pesky wires which you have to be very careful around. If you snap one of those thin strands your keyboard may not work properly afterwards. On the right hand side is the microDIMM socket where the 128MB SDRAM memory upgrade is going to go. As we mentioned before, 144pin SO-DIMM modules are NOT compatible, and won't fit anyway.
