You can find how to remove your keyboard here.
You need to remove the hinge cover. Underneath it are two screws.

Good luck

The letters "b" and "n"

there are programs you can use to erase the password but it is very easy to replace the keyboard.
I would suggest you type buy Dell Inspiron keyboard in to google an do the same on Ebay.
I did this for my friends laptop, the keyboard cost less than 10 pounds and had 2 ribbon connectors to remove the coffee stained old one.
You will need to buy some micro screwdrivers to open up the laptop.
No special skills are required to change keyboards, just give yourself a good bit of room on a desk to have the removed screws to hand.

I spilt a Milo on my keyboard. I gave it a good rinse right after it happened but now its really struggling. Basically I want help opening the keyboard. I have unscrewed the back but it wont open. Any help...

Unscrew ALL screws on the device, additionally use a kitchen knife and pry/remove the keys on the frontside if the design allows for it, though a photo or a quick sketch of the button positioning might be useful for later, check for hidden screws under the button interface.. when you are sure you stripped the keyboard of all accessible screws it will be as with opening all plastic devices.. bend and pray.

Bending open plastic devices and components is never pleasant, they are usually secured by several dead-lock mechanisms and you are likely to break a few in the process.

How do I remove the cover to replace my compaq presario (v5000)laptop keyboard

The thin strip above your keyboard should pop right off, very carefully with a thin screwdriver start at one corner an lift till you hear it start to release, your going to hear a click or pop, now do the other corner, now with starting one of the corners lift easily, and you will be able to pop it off all the way across. you will have several small screws holding the top of the keyboard down, unscrew these, and carefully slide the keyboard forward to unhook the bottom tabs, you will only be ably to lift it a short way, now you have unhook your cable from the board with one hand while holding the keyboard with the other. try to hold the keyboard as flat as possible and dont bend it any more than possible, as putting the keys back is a painstaking process. Now just reverse what you just did to replace it with the new one, besure to plug your cable tight , slide the keyboard forward just enough to slide in the bottom tabs , lay it down carefully into proper position, replace screws, snap the top strip on, and your set.

Keyboard model: A196. the ESC key does not work

Laptop keyboards are really not repairable at all. I often buy replacements on ebay, as they usually are only $15 to $20. Find a seller located in the USA for quicker delivery.

Laptop keyboard "dropping" key strokes

If this happens always with same key, then it is usually a bad key switch, and keyboard must be replaced.

If this happens randomly on a set of keys, then the keyboard flat ribbon cable is not well connected or is faulty, or the keyboard is faulty.

The laptop must be taken apart to check the keyboard connection.

The keyboard on dell is accessed removing determined screws underneath, then removing the upper cover that enclose pad and armrest.

If the keyboard is well connected, and fixing connector does not solve the problem, then the keyboard must be replaced.

Keys on Casio keyboard pulled up

I have a Casio CT-648, which looks like a smaller version of yours. I had the same problem, and got brave and opened it up. I took off the back, which takes several screws. Once it was opened up, I saw the keyboard was fastened to the frame in sections of keys. I unscrewed the section with the raised key (I believe it was 5 screws), slid the key section toward the front of the keyboard, and was able to get the slides to re-engage with the tab below it. I now have a smooth keyboard.
