  1. Can you post how to take the keyboard out of a G550JK and/or N550JK? I would like to know how and also figure out if the G550JK keyboard will be a match (fit and plugs) for the N550JK because I do not like silver keys with white back-light. I can either send my keyboard to a place to get the back-light color changed or better yet if it fits I want to just replace my N550JK keyboard with a G550JK one and maybe even use the top cover as well.
