HP DV7t Disassembly Problem

Last response: in Laptops & Notebooks

Hello, I recently slipped my laptop into my backpack, and some plastic shavings worked their way into the fan, most likely melted to it and causing blockage. I started to disassemble it, and now I'm stuck. I can't seem to find ANY videos/manuals on my model (HP DV7t-6135dx) of computer. During the disassembly, I got stuck on taking the top "faceplate" off. Unlike most DV7's, you can take the keyboard out, but not with this one. You're supposet to slide a guitar pick around the edges to un-snap it, but there is something holding up the top end of it by the screen (It seems like it's snagged up on something under the F1-12 keys). I've double checked for screws MANY times, and I just can NOT find out how to get it to budge. This may be a hard question to answer, but I would appreciate any help, thanks.
