Several keys have died on my daughter's V5-473P keyboard. I searched here and all I found were lots of customers complaining about failed keyboards with no answers, so I ordered a $20 replacement keyboard on ebay.
My question is about how to remove the top panel/bezel that surrounds the entire keyboard and touchpad? It seems like any effort to use a thin lever to pry it up would damage it... Do I need to come at it from the bottom by removing the motherboard, etc?
I'm trying to repair this on the cheap, since it's barely out of warranty and after removing the bottom case, I find it's falling apart around many of the screw holes (the bottom case appears more pricey than the keyboard).
