Actually, there are three screws in the step 1.

The third one is hidden under the cover for the memory box!!!

Be careful, otherwise the dammage is granted.

Actually I was able to remove the keyboard fairly easily following the steps provided. However even after quite a few attempts at replacing it with either the new one I purchased or even the old one I am still unable to secure the data ribbon into the appropriate connector.therefore the keyboard is not functional… HELP!!! PLEASE??

You need probably put flat cable under the plastic connector and push small plastic in. First I put cable on top and it doesn’t work.

But the easier is to unscrew tree additional screws in battery compartment and not disconnect cables.
