August 5, 2011

In this article I show how to take apart the Sony VAIO VGN-NR430E Keyboard.

Step 1:

There are four spring loaded latches(four yallow arrows) securing the keyboard under the power board cover. You have to release the four latches for removing the keyboard.

Push on the latch with a sharp object. The keyboard will lift up a little bit and will not allow the latch to lock again.
