  1. Flip laptop over and locate the battery release button
    • Flip laptop over and locate the battery release button

    • Push release button to the left to release battery and gently pull battery from the laptop

  2. Loosen the three Phillips 2.5×9.0 captive screws that secure the keyboard to the laptop
    • Loosen the three Phillips 2.5×9.0 captive screws that secure the keyboard to the laptop

    • Turn the laptop so the keyboard is facing up and locate the 4 retention tabs along the back edge of the keyboard

    • Slide the retention clips toward the keyboard to release the keyboard

    • Use a plastic pry tool to lift the rear edge of the keyboard.

    • Pull the keyboard slightly towards the display to disengage the tabs along the front of the keyboard from the laptop palm rest.

    • Lift the keyboard up to reveal the ribbon connectors

    • Release the larger ribbon cable by flipping the brown retainer up so it is parallel with the ribbon cable

    • Release the smaller ribbon cable by lifting up the white retainer

    • I found it easier to reinstall both cables with the new keyboard resting on the back edge

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
