remove the cover on the bottom (the cover covers the hard drive, the ram and the wifi card).

under the cover there are a few screws, remove the screw with a keyboard icon next to it.

if there is a nearly square hole with a keyboard icon and an arrow toward the hole next to it, use the back of a pencil to push the back of the hole, the keyboard should pop out.

lift up the keyboard find the flat (and fragile) cable. where the cable attaches to the motherboard there's a clip on top of the end of the cable, open the clip and the keyboard should come lose.

insert the new keyboard and the flat cable, push the edges of the keyboard down (if necessary). re-insert screws. after you put the cover back you'll be done
