Hello David, and thank you for using this service.
Do you still need help with this keyboard?
Is this a backlit keyboard?
That's strange, as that model appears to be listed as a backlit keyboard.
In any case, is this what your replacement keyboard looks like?
Could you send me a picture of the laptop with the existing keyboard in place? I'd like to see exactly what you are trying to remove there. Thanks.
Sorry, spent some time on this, and couldn't find any service manuals or even related models with information on keyboard. Will opt out to other experts.
I may be wrong but that front cover looks like it just pops out.
try putting a very small screw driver around the sides and see if it jiggles a little
it may have a catch somewhere. But more likely it just has little spring metal that hold against the sides to keep it in place
