Answers :

Remove Battery--- Then Remove 4 Or 5 Screws In Battery Compartment----Open Laptop And On Top Of Keypad There Is A Cover Over The On/Off Switch That Must Be Removed. If You Press Down On The Top Row Of Keys You Will See Some Slots Where You Can Pry That Cover Up, Once Removed There Are 4 Screws On Top Of Keyboard To Remove. After Removal Lift Up Keypad Slightly To Unplug Strip From Computer And Remove Keypad
To remove the keyboard you need to take the battery out and remove the 5 or so screws from there, and if I remember, the one just right of the battery slot next to the vent. Then open up the lid and carefully pop off the top button bezel and then you will find the 4 screws holding down the top edge of the keyboard.
