Shut down the power to the computer by selecting the "Start" button then select "Shut down." Turn the computer over and remove the battery by unlocking it then slide out to remove.

Wait five minutes after removing the battery before proceeding. Touch the metal before doing anything to the computer to release any static electricity.

Open the laptop and pry the cover where the power button is located up gently with a screwdriver. Remove the entire strip and set aside.

Unscrew the three screws where the cover was removed and tape them to a sheet of paper to ensure you don't lose them. Lift the keyboard from the rear portion angling it toward you.

Undo the cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. Remove the keyboard and replace with the new one by attaching the cable first then lay the keyboard back where you just removed the other.
