Keyboard typically have to be removed from the top. You have to remove the panel that's near the top of the keyboard, right below the display. Then there will be a couple screws in there.

Hp g60-630us how to remove keyboard

I recommend that you unscrew all screws on the bottom of the laptop. Next, you will have to remove the plastic cover lying between the keyboard & the LCD screen panel's hinges. This has to be done gently so that it does not break. When this cover is removed, you will have access to the screws holding the keyboard to the laptop's chassis. Unscrew these screws & then gently lift the keyboard up. There should be a ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the laptop's motherboard. Unlock the connector holding the ribbon cable in place & now you can remove the keyboard.

Remember that, while doing this, if you have to force something out, then you are doing it the wrong way. There might be a screw somewhere that you missed & this screw might still be holding the parts together.

If you need any further assistance, feel free to drop me a note.

How do i remove the keyboard

Usually you can remove the panel right above the keyboard, this will allow you to access the keyboard screws. The keyboard should swing up allowing you to unplug and remove it.
