It will be a lot easier and will cause less problems if you replace the whole keyboard with a new one.

Have containers on hand to place the screws in. If you have enough containers it is better if you keep the screws from each section together as you remove them (don't know about your laptop but in some not all the screws are the same size). That way it will be easier for you and less confusing which screws go where when you re-assemble the laptop. A bit of planning beforehand about how to organize and store the screws when you dis-assemble the laptop saves a lot of hassle afterwards. At a minimum at least store the screws in a container.You'll be surprised how some can disappear from the work area! Also, take notice if any screw in a section that you remove is a different size to the others in that area, mark the screwhole so that the correct screw is put back later.
