Keyboards are usually screwed in on the top of the laptop as well. Try to pop off the plastic cover above the keyboard, there should be little slots to allow you to take it off. Then there should be some screws under there for the keyboard.
Remove the power cord, remove the battery, turn the laptop over and remove any screws you see inside the battery compartment. Also look on the bottom and in the battery case for any keys that might have the icon of a keyboard beside them (they hold the keyboard in place). You might have to remove all the screws from the bottom case if the laptop's design does not have a separate strip that sits above the keyboard. Once you have the screws remove, turn the laptop over and open the lid. If there laptop has a strip above the keyboard, then pry it off gently because a cable might be under it. If it does not have a strip, but is all one big piece called the palmrest that surrounds the keyboard, then the keyboard might have little catches on the sides and at the top that you can move and wiggle the keyboard out. if not you will have to remove the palmrest. Also if you have the strip above the keyboard, once you remove it you might see screws that hold the keyboard then remove them.
Be careful when you lift the keyboard out, there is a cable under it that has to be removed from the board.
LOL, you shouldn't eat and drink over your laptop. Count your blessings that you didn't shorten your motherboard out. The best way to clean it is to probably take it apart from the computer.
Remove the power cord, remove the battery, then turn the laptop over and start removing screws from the bottom. Look inside the battery case and there might be screws there, specifically there might be some with the icon of a keyboard. Once you have the screws removed, turn the laptop over and open the lid, then pry off the strip that is over the keyboard just under the lcd screen. Once you remove it you might see more screws that hold the keyboard in place so remove them. Once all screws are removed, lift the keyboard gently because there will be a cable underneath it. Remove the cable that is attached to the keyboard and then you can clean it. I would use something like a toothpick or Q-Tip cotton swab and maybe some rubbing alcohol. You'll have to hold keys down that are around the key you want to clean to get under the key you want to clean that is stuck. Once you've cleaned it press it repeatedly to make sure it does not stick.
take all the screws off the bottom (including the screws hidden by the optical drive), turn the laptop over, open it. there is a small strip of plastic right above the keyboard, pry it loose and remove the 4 screws from underneath to release the keyboard. disconnect all the exposed ribbon cables and any other cable connector that you can see. once you've done this pick a spot on one of the edges to start prying it apart. Use a small screw driver or plastic pry tool if you need it. (on this model I started with the top right hand corner.)
remove rhe 2 screws which have arrows pointing to them either side of battery and screws underneath battery, remove top cover with speaker grills and power button, remove 2 screws at top of keyboard, remove keyboard, if you want more access, remove rest of covers, screws, dvd-rw and screws beneath dvd-rw gently prise casing apart, remove screws from mobo, remove mobo.
Thanks for giving Fixya the pleasure to solve your problem.
Follow these steps to change the fan:-
Turn off your Fujitsu and remove the main battery from the bottom of the device. Remove the screws on the underside of the laptop with your Phillips screwdriver.
Remove the compartment cover marked "Hard Drive" on the bottom of the laptop and unplug the thick cable connecting the computer to the hard drive. Gently pull the hard drive from its housing.
Turn your laptop right-side up and remove the screws on the backs of the two hinges that support the LCD monitor. Now open your laptop so the screen is facing you.
Insert the tip of your screwdriver under the edge of the thin plastic plate just above the keyboard. Gently pry it up and remove it from the computer. Lift the keyboard up from the top edge and disconnect the data ribbon connecting it to the motherboard. Remove the keyboard and set it aside.
Disconnect the two LCD ribbons that connect the screen to the computer and then unplug the touchpad ribbon connecting the touchpad to the computer.
Remove the screws on the sides of the frame underneath where the keyboard used to sit and remove the frame, exposing the internal components of the laptop.
Locate the square fan in the left corner of the computer and disconnect the single cable that runs from its side to the motherboard.
Remove the screws securing the fan to the computer and replace with the new fan (available from your Fujitsu retailer or online) and reassemble the laptop in the reverse order you took it apart.
Be prepared to buy a new keyboard... Remove AC and DC power before working on laptop. Many laptop keyboards come off with the removal of 1 to 5 screws from the bottom. Some, however, require the palm rest to be removed, then a couple of screws that hold in the keyboard. Be careful when removing and replacing cables.After removing keyboard, rinse with water and let dry thoroughly before re-attaching and powering up. You cannot remove individual keys, so don't try.
There should be several screws located on the bottom of the laptop directly below the keyboard. Often times, it will have a keyboard symbol next to it. Remove those screws, lift up the keyboard, disconnect the cable, and perform these steps in reverse to put the new keyboard in.
