    If you are removing only the keyboard, you only need to remove two screws.

    2 - To the top left of the INSPIRON M5030 label, there are two screws. Remove the left one.

  2. Turn the laptop over and open the lid.
    • Turn the laptop over and open the lid.

    • Locate the three tabs above the first row of keys on the top of the keyboard. In the first image, the three tabs are boxed in red and found above the F1, F6, and PrntScr keys.

    • With one of your hands, push the leftmost tab down with the plastic opening tool (above the F1 key). With your other hand, lift the left side of the keyboard.

    • Push the middle tab down with the plastic opening tool and continue lifting from the left side of the keyboard to the right side (above the F6 key).

    • Push the rightmost tab down with the plastic opening tool and continue lifting from the left side of the keyboard to the right side (above the PrntScr key). The keyboard should be loosened from the laptop after these steps.

    for your last bullet, maybe clarify saying "push the next to tabs with the plastic opening tool…"

    • Do not pull the keyboard up forcefully as the keyboard is still attached to the laptop by a ribbon.
