You'll need to replace the keyboard. First figure out how to remove it. Google or search the manufactures web site. One's I worked on have screws through the bottom labeled "K". Pay attention to the screw lengths and make sure the same ones go back in the same screws. The keybd itself just sets inside a little lip once you get the screws all out. Remove it and see if the pop went on to other areas of the laptop. If it did then I don't think you'll be able to repair it, But if it only on the key bd, I'd search ebay for another board. The ribbon cable just pushes on and off to remove it completely.
Shut down the laptop. Disconnect the power cable, close the LCD screen, and place it face down Push down on the battery, and slide it to the left & Lift it out of its compartment,
Grip the black tab from the hard drive. Slide the hard drive to the left and up, Remove the three screws from the top edge of the laptop on the bottom casing. Flip the laptop over, and open the LCD. Press down the "Insert" key, and then insert a flat-head r into the right side of the button panel between the keyboard and LCD screen. Pry up the button panel. Do not remove it from the laptop completely.

Not sure about that brand but the normal process for removing the back on a lappy is:
Remove all screws on the bottom.
Remove all covers and cards and put them safe
Remove battery rom and hard disk
Remove panel above keyboard and screen hinge bracket cover if any
Remove any screws from under keyboard that hold chassis
Remove screen bracket screws and connectors from screen.
Remove screen off chassis.
Remove any visible connectors that will get in the way when case is separated.
Separate case making sure no cables are caught.
Remove screws holding in motherboard
Turn over and resolder joints on the bottom of connector if plastic is in order.
Reverse the procedure for assembly.
Its not a very easy repair an experienced tech will take about an hour maybe a little longer to do it.
If your memory isnt great take photos along the way, makes for easier assembly.
1)Flipped the laptop back over and carefully removed the cover along the top (Where the power buttons is) by removing the three screws along the back of the laptop. You need to be careful removing this as it has small plastic clips that are very easily snapped. Once that’s off you can remove the two screws that hold the Keyboard in place. Lift the keyboard and release the catch on the Keyboard cable on the motherboard. Allows you to lift the keyboard away.
2)Then remove the cable for the LCD display and pull the wireless connection cable through the hole, Remove the screws holding the Display in place and remove completely, Store it somewhere safe as these displays are very easy to break.
3)Remove the 2 screws holding in the Power button board and lift it off. Again store it somewhere safe and on or in something antistatic.
Most laptops keep the hard drive on the bottom side. There is a cover screwed over the area with usually 2 screws, the cover is identified by the typical 3 disc stacked symbol. In some cases the hard drive slides out of the side, still being held by two screws, some even slide of the front and you must remove 2 rubber stoppers to uncover the screw holes. Each location usually has the hard drive symbol I described eariler. Hope this helps!
Sorry for asking which machine you are opening. I got to this post through multiple links and didn't realize I was in a Designer 1 area.
Yes, you do need to remove screws in the bottom to remove the covers. I do not recommend that you do this due to electrical safety issues. When the front cover is lifted away from the machine, you will find 6 different types of connectors attaching cables between the front cover and the machine. You will be able to move the front cover approximately 3.5 inches away from the machine to reach in and disconnect these cables. The touch screen cable, if it has not been replaced, is very short and very fragile and will cause the touch screen to stop working in the blink of an eye. If you don't know what you are doing, it is dangerous for both you and the machine.
