I've followed the online details on how to remove the keyboard, but it just seems as if screws are holding it in place, though I've removed the two from under the case marked with the tiny keyboard image.

I'm attempting to replace the video ribbon, and need to get the keyboard up. If I pry much harder, it will bend or snap apart. I'm totally stumped. :help:

I tried that already. I've followed any and all available online manuals for disassembly. For whatever reason, the keyboard doesn't budge at all. It's as if it is still screwed down.

The only thing I can figure is that really strong sticky padding was also used. I can't even get anything under it to pry it up. Has anyone out there had this issue?

I had this problem, too. The problem is that your keyboard is sticked with some kind of glue (somewhere under the letters "d" and "f",but I have seen the same glue on the other side,too(somewhere under the letters "k" and "l") ). I used a knife (but not the sharp one) to separate this. You should watch out of the keyboard cable that connects keyboard to a motherboard(it is somewhere in the middle of the keyboard).
I hope this helps ..

I'm glad it was helpful. I was at the end of my nerves with this so I thought it would be appreciated posting the solution to this problem. For someone who has no experience with opening lap-tops, this explanation was needed desperately but there is none word about this on the internet...
Once more, I am so glad that someone found this useful;)
