  1. It looks like the keyboard might come out from under the bottom. I have a Toshiba with a similar design, so I know the bottom panel comes off with a number of screws to expose the motherboard and innards mounted to the top lid. What I'm guessing is that the board and other parts come off to reveal the keyboard mounted into the bottom of the top lid.

    PITA, yes. (but no worse than a keyboard replacement for a unibody macbook, which I've done)

    Thank you. I removed the entire bottom and it looks like the motherboard does need to come out. Do you know if you have to remove all the ribbon connectors in order to move the motherboard out of the way?
  3. Probably.

    A quick search didn't turn up anything helpful. You might have to just carefully watch where you go and use little cups to keep track of what came from where. Make yourself a guide as you go if you feel you'll need help to re-assemble it.

    I have been searching for more than two hours and cannot find anything. Wife spilled a glass of wine on her 2 month old computer and now the keyboard is not responding. I was hoping to get the keyboard off and replaced but this is proving to be exactly what you said....
