This is a step by step process for a key replacement guide on a ASUS GL752VW-DH74 keyboard when the key pressed will not be read on the computer screen. Either the keys on the keyboard are worn out from use, or they can get cluttered with dust, crumbs, or debris, which will conflict when typing. Sometimes proper cleaning and regular maintenance can deter this problem, if not, then replacing the keys may be necessary.

  1. Begin by putting the needle into the hole in the disk tray.
    • Begin by putting the needle into the hole in the disk tray.

    I want to point out that in order to do this step you have to remove the screw holding the CD drive in place first. On top of this if the screw is out very light pulling on the drive will remove it. There is no need for a pry tool or a needle to eject it. To make it easier on yourself I would actually do step 5 first and just be done with all the screws before you take out the CD screw (Which, by the way, step 5 is shown with the CD drive still attached and screwed in which can cause confusion and possible damage if not careful/paying attention).

    I was not able to extract the DVD drive until unscrewing the .8 screw central on the back of the laptop. That one holds the DVD drive.

This guide needs more work. The metal keyboard has small black pins that keep it in place. They will need to be melted by a heating/soldering gun, and then remelted to keep the new keyboard in place.
