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

How to replace keyboard on sony vgn-nr498e, broken left hand shift key, i need to replace entire keyboard

If you have the new keyboard, look at the bottom and locate the screw sockets. On the laptop at the bottom, match and locate the approximate location of where each screws are mounted. Remove only those screw. On some laptops, you might need to remove the keyboard top frame - if they are mounted with screws, remove them as well. Some laptops have a small picture or symbol of a keyboard for each screw that needs to be removed on the bottom of the laptop.

It won't boot. says it can't find operating system.

Windows is corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it by using the recovery cd. If you don't have it you will have to order it from Sony.
