  • Remove the fourteen 7/16" screws from the bottom of the laptop using a #0 Phillips head screwdriver.

  • Remove the two 5/16" screws from the bottom of the laptop using a #0 Phillips head screwdriver.

If you are removing only the keyboard, you only need to remove two screws.

1 - Remove the screw to the immediate right of the INSPIRON M5030 label.

2 - To the top left of the INSPIRON M5030 label, there are two screws. Remove the left one.

  • Push the leftmost tab down with the plastic opening tool, while lifting the left side of the keyboard with your other hand.

  • While continuing to lift the left side of the keyboard, push the other two tabs down, moving from left to right. This should loosen the keyboard.

for your last bullet, maybe clarify saying "push the next to tabs with the plastic opening tool…"
