    How to dismantle my keyboard

    I have a Sony VAIO SVL2412M1E/B AiO desktop computer. My keyboard is like a flat shape. It really looks grubby underneath the keys and I want to take off the top shell of the keyboard to properly remove the dirt and grime, but I do not want to break anything. How can I do it? Many thanks.
