    HP 255 G7 Laptop Keyboard Replacement

    So my keyboard for my computer (the one that my niece poured Milk on that started working again) came in. But I am trying to find some instructions on how to install the new keyboard. You have to order the whole top cover to replace the keyboard on this computer.

    I hope y'all can help.

    Doesn't say much about the keyboard. The way the laptop is assembled, you may have to remove everything from the "top cover". Basically, you have to take the whole thing apart and put it back together again. Not a task I'd tackle with much confidence.

    Take lots of pictures at every step. Keep track of all those screws.

    Best of luck.

    So I ordered this keyboard/top cover for the said computer as mentioned above. My stepfather is helping me do the work on it. He isn't as computer illiterate as some are, but he does know how to read and follow directions from a instruction video versus me I am better at following directions from a written instruction guide. But back to why I am posting is because we have ran into a stop in this. Everything from the new keyboard/top cover matches up with the old one that is defective that is in my unit now, but the Feature Byte number.

    We are wanting to know if it's going to matter if we put in the new part with the Feature Byte not matching up with the old one? We are just worried about compatibility issues and to make sure nothing happens when we power up the computer so that it won't run into an error.
