I have a Compaq presario 2710us I need to take apart, any tips\help will be appreciated. Keyboard,mouse not working. Ribbon cable for DVD player needs replacement. Laptop was dropped. dvd player came completely out. Works with a external keyboard. How would I test the onboard keyboard? Did notice the drivers are missing for Both internal keyboard\mouse, but still needs to come apart to repair ribbon cable and dvd play rails

I'm not certain for this particualr model; but here are some general tips.

Flip the machine over, look for screw holes marked with arrows. Marked screws usually mean they hold the keyboard in place.

Situated above your keyboard near the hinges for the screen, there may be a plastic cover that needs to come off. They tend to snap/screw into place ton of different ways, so you will just have to check it out.

Compaq is also famous for using Torx screws (*/star shapped), so a regualr screwdriver will not work.

If you can get the keyboard out, try researting the cable that connects the keyboard to the main board. These are famous for becoming loose and making things not work.
