Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. Since this can be rather complicated, please take a look at this LINK. It has a good step by step pictorial of how to remove the keyboard.

I already looked at that website it shows the hinge and start panel snaping out we remove almost all the bottom screws and it still seems to hang up on the sides I do not think you should have t take apart the whole laptop to replace the keyboard on one that old

Once you remove the three top screws, it should lift right out? How far are you with the disassembly?
