    is it this type
    or this type


    If the first one, its an easy one, you have to slide the nodges that are above the Function keys, then it should pop out, if not check for screws underneath with a keyboard icon near them.

    Let me know which model is the one you have and might be able to take a picture on monday.

    Top one is as described, newer is the same, but there are 2 screws underneath. They are both labelled "K".
    They can be fiddly, just becareful not to push them to to far.

    I may have a disassembly guide, I will dig it out for you. From memory it is as Rad describes, there are four little spring loaded clips you have to push back, very gently and the keyboard just pops out.

    I'm assuming you've already done it now but as rad said, if it's the top one there are about 4 nodges above the function keys. I tend to push the keys down and use a flat head screwdriver to pop them in. The keyboard then pops up and you just need to disconnect the ribbon. Just done shove them in too hard else they don't come back out!
