Introdução

If the keyboard on your ThinkPad T580 stops working, you can use this repair guide to fix it. The keyboard is responsible for relaying the physical input from the user to the motherboard, so if it isn’t functioning properly it can prevent the owner from using the computer completely.

If your keyboard has malfunctioning keys, such as certain keys registering multiple presses when only pressed once, keys not registering presses at all, key chattering, or if your keyboard stops registering keypresses completely, replacing the keyboard should alleviate your problems.

Luckily, the keyboard in the ThinkPad T580 is modular and can be replaced from the front of the device. You don’t even need to open the back cover!

Aren't there screws on the bottom of the laptop that ought to be unscrewed as well? That's what the T580 service guide says, I think.

This guide is wrong. You need to remove three screws on the bottom. Then slide the keyboard forward (towards the screen) and lift it up at the front to remove it.

This guide is indeed incorrect. After just pulling the screws out of the back of the keyboard thinking they were "clips" as stated in the article, I can confirm that you DO need to unscrew the three center screws on the back of the laptop prior to removing the keyboard.

Hi Dave.

You and the other commenters are 100% right! I have updated the guide accordingly.
