    • Be careful to not lift up on the keyboard too quickly or harshly; there is a ribbon cable connecting the keyboard and the base which may be breakable.

    • Lightly lift up on the keyboard from one of its top corners and pull it towards the screen so you can safely remove the ribbon cable.

    • At the base of the ribbon cable, there is a tiny tab that runs across the width of the connector. Flip it up. You can now pull the ribbon cable free with no resistance towards the monitor.

    • With the cable unplugged, the keyboard can be lifted away from the laptop.
