Replace keyboard on ASUS Q200E/S200E/X202E

A nice reader recently asked for help on how to replace the keyboard on an ASUS X202E notebook. While I have some photos on the initial disassembly process, I did not have photos of the rest of the process. A significant amount of searching did not yield a complete guide to the process 🙁 However, I did find some good instructions for similar ASUS models so I am compiling that information here: Laptop replacement keyboard (without frame) for ASUS Q200

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga, Fn key fix w/function lock

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga defaults to having all the function (F1-F12) keys perform their alternate behavior and not their ‘function’ key behavior. For example, if you want to refresh a web page by pressing F5 you must simultaneously press and hold the Fn key, otherwise the key will function as ‘decrease brightness’ .

Force MacBook Air/Pro keyboard backlight ON [solved]

I was dismayed when my new MacBook’s backlit keyboard turned off without any warning. Apparently Apple feels it knows best when the kb backlight should be on and off. This auto-off behavior was a bit of a bummer to me after many Dell and HP laptops which feature fully user controllable backlit keyboards. Thankfully “Lab Tick” is a small program which lets you take control of the backlight! Highly recommended for anyone with a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air and backlit keyboard…
