Above the Keyboard, and directly under the LCD screen is the Keyboard Cover. This cover contains the various LED lights, and Power On button.
1) ALL power to the laptop is removed. The AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.
2) Two Philips head screws are removed from the back of the laptop, which fasten the hinge cover portion of the Keyboard Cover to the laptop.
3) A thin flat-bladed screwdriver is used to gently pop the Keyboard Cover up.
On the Right and Left sides of the Keyboard Cover, and also the middle, (Side towards the Keyboard), a small flat-tipped screwdriver is used to gently pry the Keyboard Cover up.
Use care so as to not damage the plastics, nor the wireless antenna.

Simply plug the ac adapter into the wall, the laptop will charge the battery itself.
Keep in mind this... in general, a laptop runs at full speed when it is plugged into the wall. When most laptops are running on battery, things are running more at 50% capacity to save on power, this giving you more battery life. A dimmer lcd and slowing the processor down when not needed are common traits.
You can use the FN key (function key) and the corresponding dim control on the keyboard to adjust the brightnedd of the backlight. It should be marked on your keyboard in a different color, like blue or maybe green (not familiar with that models keyboard).
