    Need to replace the KB on one of these. Got it lifting and
    disconnected two ribbon cables but something is holding the KB really
    firm in the bottom left corner, under the ASZX keys or thereabouts.
    Does anyone have an idea what this is, I don't want to use too much
    force........

    Look on the bottom and look for the letter "K" nearby one of the screws.
    As many laptops have one screw holding down the keyboard in this
    fashion. Sometimes it might be under one the the trap doors as well.

    Yup, a lot of them today use screws now. Luckily they usually put a "K"
    next to one of them so you know which screw needs to be removed. :)
