Insert the 6 inch metal ruler, or another flat object into the holes in the top left of the keyboard, the top middle of the keyboard, and the top right of the keyboard to release the keyboard from the computer. There are a number of screws on the bottom that required to be removed prior to the keyboard being able to be lifted up.

"There are a number of screws on the bottom that required to be removed prior"

That's a very unhelpful step! What are they and which ones?!? I'm following two YouTube videos that show this stage and both have a single screw that holds the keyboard im place which my N5010 simply doesn't have. So my keyboard is held in place and I can't lift it.

I have only discovered one screw that releases the keyboard. It is under the RAM access panel
