Above the keyboard - between the keyboard and the screen there is a plastic piece that if you take a small screw driver you can pry off just above the keyboard or at the hinges. Be very careful not to scratch. If you are worried about scratching ifixit.com sells a tool called a spudgner that is soft plastic. This is what the pro's use. Once you have that plastic off you can simply unscrew the keyboard.
Be carefull when lifting the keyboard off. It is attached with a thin ribbon. the ribbon is held in with a clip. gently pull on the clip until it release the ribbon. Once you have the old keyboard off simply push the ribbon in the clip and force the clips back down. Then just reverse the previous steps.
Have you checked the DC jack where the power adapter plugs in. With the adapter plugged in, wiggle it and see if you get movement. Hold it upward and turn your unit on, if the power stays on, then it is the DC connector on the motherboard that is loose.
If your fan is working correctly, then check your ram. But experience has shown me that an issue like this is usually motherboard related.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
