"There are a number of screws on the bottom that required to be removed prior"

That's a very unhelpful step! What are they and which ones?!? I'm following two YouTube videos that show this stage and both have a single screw that holds the keyboard im place which my N5010 simply doesn't have. So my keyboard is held in place and I can't lift it.

I have only discovered one screw that releases the keyboard. It is under the RAM access panel
