Step 1: Materials
2. Philips Head Screw Driver(small)
4. Tape(of the Electrical Variety)
5. Scissors(for cutting Tape)
6. A sharp knife
7. A Ruler
8. Hole Punch
Step 2: Open Your Keyboard
Step 3: Now That You Have It Open...
You need to check to see if there is anything holding it in. If there is, remove it, but hold onto any pieces that you remove, especially the circuit boards! Take a close look at how the plastic bit attaches to the circuit board. You can also see, here in my picture that a black ground wire attaches to a metal strip. You may need to recreate this inside the notebook, I would say use Aluminum foil!
Step 4: Pull and Tape
To be sure they dont come apart you have to tape the top, bottom, and sides everywhere but where the plastic circuit is supposed to meet with the circuit board.
Step 5: The Notebook
***CAUTION***: BE CAREFUL CUTTING OPEN A NOTEBOOK. HAVE ADULT SUPERVISION OR HAVE AN ADULT DO IT FOR YOU!
Step 6: Stuffing!
Step 7: Electronics
1) You can go ahead and stuff the rest of the keyboard in.
2) Measure what's left
Because now you have to make a little pocket for the remainder of the electronics from the keyboard. Measure the width of the circuit board and make a cut a little longer just above where the plastic circuit is supposed to connect to it. Try to line it up and if possible, screw it down to the cardboard inside.
Also, if you have a hole puncher, you can make holes for the different LED's to go through on the front(Caps lock, Scroll lock, Num Lock).
Then, tape down all 7 cuts on the notebook leaving the cord hanging freely or, you can make one more cut and have the chord run out of the top of the spine of the notebook.
Step 8: Keyboard Layout
What could be done is making a stencil of a keyboard and painting it on, or taping down a good printout of one....
Either way, you are going to have to make sure that it lines up well.
