This is a straight forward removal of the keyboard. I needed to remove it to replace the LCD.

  1. Shut down the computer. Disconnect all external devices connected to the computer. Disconnect the power from the computer by first unplugging the power cord from the AC outlet and then unplugging the AC adapter from the computer. Close the screen and turn the computer over.Loosen the three Phillips 2.5×9.0 captive screws that secure the keyboard to the computer. They are secured by a spring clip at the back, so they will not be easily removed. All that is required is to loosen those. Turn the computer display-side up, with the front toward you. Open the computer as far as possible. There are four retention tabs that hold the keyboard down.

Old laptop, good modular design!

O Dumper - Contestar

I moved back all 4 tabs and keyboard lifted from the right but not from the left. After multiple attempts to no avail I tried pressing the loose right back in hoping it would realign and lift at once but it snapped into position and wouldn’t move. I even removed all 4 tabs from their place to no avail. Somehow the keyboard is snapped in place without the tabs playing any part. I looked up a video on what to do and stumbled on this. Still no clue what I can do to free the keyboard.
