  2. Hello,
    I am trying to replace my keyboard on this model. I tried prying up the arm rest however it is getting struck somewhere near the DVD area. I see there are three small screws once you remove the DVD drive. My question is, is it necessary to remove those small screws which is inside the laptop below the dvd drive or can I pry the arm rest without having to remove them?
    If you have a video or any other information on this regards would help. Thanks.
