Every laptop is different some have screws underneath some have a part of the casing above the keyboard that can be removed by sliding it to one side revealing the screws underneath this could also house the power buttons and some unfortunately require the complete laptop motherboard etc removing first and i know with my sony this is what i had to do, so firstly check for a strip above the keyboard and try sliding it to one side, if there is a strip then youre in luck as it will normally reveal 3 screws holding down the keyboard which will allow the keyboard to lift and unclip and then you just need to unclip the ribbon cable from the motherboard, if theres no strip then you could try turning the laptop over and removing any screws that are directly under the keyboard and see if this frees it and also removing any memory and hard drive that may be hiding any screws, if this does not solve your problem then you are heading for a complete stripdown of the laptop base which unless you feel competent in doing so is best left to the experts, hope this helps

These folks sell a replacement keyboard for your model.

Either the accessory or user guide on Sony's site should provide you with instructions for replacing it.

SOURCE: How do you remove the keyboard on a Sony Vaio laptop PCG-7192L

Let's see if this helps Tom,

1) http://laptoppartstore.weebly.com/replace--remove-sony-vaio-vgn-nw-keyboard.html

2) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BEcX_0KYIE

The Keyboard Cable STAYS attached to the Keyboard.
It disconnects FROM the motherboard's connector.

The Keyboard Cable has NO connector on the end. It is a FFC.
Flat Flex Cable.
One example of a Flat Flex Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flat-Flex-Cable.jpg

The flat metal terminal bars MUST be aligned back in the SAME position, as they were originally.
For this reason you may wish to take a Sharpee marker, and make a mark on one side of the cable.
Then make a matching mark on the same side of the motherboard connector, BEFORE you remove the cable.

The motherboard connector is a type of ZIF connector.
Zero Insertion Force.
It is composed of two pieces, but does NOT come completely apart!

The bottom part is larger, rectangular shaped, and is stationary to the motherboard.
It is the BODY.

The upper part is smaller, rectangular shaped, and is movable.
It is the Locking Bar.

ACCORDING to the video the Locking Bar is the Slide/Wedge type.

DO NOT use a metal tool as shown. One slip, and you can damage the motherboard! Geez!

Use your Fingernails, or Thumbnails.

The Locking Bar slides up. Up towards the LCD screen, or away from the Body.
It ONLY moves about 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.

IF, the Locking Bar is broken, or the Body, you are looking at
-> MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT!!

Hence why I am being so detailed.

More detail on unlocking this type of motherboard ZIF connector,

A) Locked position;

B) Unlocked position;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-C650-C655/body-big/disassemble-toshiba-c655-12.jpg

There is another style of Locking Bar used, however.
The Locking Bar flips up to a 90 degree position, or also can be stated as Straight Up.

Just to make sure I'm going to include info for it too;

A) Locked position

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L645D-L640D/big/laptop-disassembly-13.jpg

B) Unlocked position;
