Question about IBM ThinkPad 570E Notebook
Hi. I want to put a new motherboard on my 570 and in the middle of the keyboard I'm stuck. I don't see any extra screws to unscrew
The keyboard is held by two screws on the bottom of the machine, then you just need to work it up ay one side and off. I've had a few that the keyboard was stuck, and had to pull a little harder to get it off. When separating the plastics, there are a few hidden screws under black sticky pads, 4 at the front of the machine that I can think of right off hand, make sure you get these. Once you get the keyboard off, just take your time and be sure to remove all visible screws. Here's a link to some IBM service manuals. Couldn't find one for the 570, but the T series have the same basic design. Look over the manuals, they should be able to give you a better idea of hoe they come apart.
