I'll get some more pictures of the bezel tonight along with some more complete instructions.
Got to get today's considerable paperwork done first, though.

This next image shows the cables we're interested in poking out from under the keyboard. The one on the left is for the power button...the one on the right is for the speakers. It may be easier to connect these cables with the keyboard partially or completely removed. Remember...there is a screw in the center of the keyboard that is accessed by removing the memory bay cover.
This last image shows the bezel with the cables seated in their respective connectors with the locking bars in the "locked" position. Note that there is a white line on the cables that should be just visible above the connector when the cable is properly seated. It should be hidden by the locking bar before it's moved to the locked position.
Then snap the keyboard back into place and replace the screw in the memory bay. Snap the bezel back in place over the keyboard, inserting the top (closest to display) first, then "rolling" it down against the keyboard until it snaps into place...secure it with the three screws in the battery bay. Install the battery and see if it will fire up...and play sounds through the speakers.

I was mistaken about not having to take out any screws.
I, actually, thought so too from the start because I remembered that when we followed the YouTube video, it took quite a lot of disassembly until we got to that part...
But... since YOU are the guru, I followed on blind faith like gurus' followers do.
The three screws under the battery will need to be removed to facilitate removal of the speaker bezel.
Actually the middle screw is MIA from last week. Is it OK to not have that one?
Thanks so much for all the pictures. I'll give it a shot tomorrow after work. I'm a little zombiefied after not sleeping at all last night.
So you don't think I did any major damage by trying to pry the bezel off? Sorry that I'm taking you away from your paperwork. Who likes paperwork anyway? Unless, of course, if you're sending out invoices to be paid.

Cut a small strip of a playing card the same width as the cable and about 1/2" long. Insert the cable into the connector and then slide the strip of playing card into the connector on top of the cable to hold it in place.
When you say the power cable is "OK". Is it working or does the cable just appear to be plugged in? In either case, I would re-seat the cable just to make sure.
