    90% of the time that strip that runs across the top above the keyboard, usually where the power light, power buttons are, snaps off and there will be two screws under that. Undo those, the keyboard will lift up, there will be a thin ribbon cable that comes undone, reverse to install.

    Take a few pics of the keyboard and post them, might give us a clue here ...

    on the bottom of the machine, any screw labeled with a "K" needs to come out.
