    Yeah its VERY easy to do. Had one Computer looked up the actual Code on the keyboard, went to order and wouldn't ya know it -- Two VERY similar products with the same code

    Thankfully the parts weren't expensive, when contacting the supplier he sent both saying return the one that's not correct.

    Have a ring around & get some quotes.
    We send laptops out to an Ak Laptop repair specialist, as the cost for the whole job is about the same as our cost of kb's anyway .

    They arnt hard to do .
    Splitting the case open will sound like plastic breaking, so be prepared for that . Its just the sound of all the plastic tabs being forced to unclip . :-)
    Also , make sure you remove ALL the screws . Look for a how to page that shows all the screws and their locations. Its easy to miss a screw thats in an unexpected place (under rubber feet or under a label etc)

    WOULDN"T recommend the Op taking this one apart -- looks like it may be like one I have here, to get to the keyboard to replace it you have to COMPLETELY dissemble the laptop, remove motherboard all internal components --- everything.

    Like a lot of laptops these days, the Bottom Cover comes off and all the internals are actually connected to the top cover.

    Here's the disassembly instructions. https://www.insidemylaptop.com/how-t...l55d-l50-l50d/

    Edited: Scroll down to the end of article, may or may not apply to this exact Model - keyboard

    Good you got it sorted.

    I get components from Aliexpress as well sometimes, the only real downside is the time it takes for them to arrive, but sometimes when $$ is a concern the waits worth it. The exact same part can cost many times more in NZ.
