    I have a HP Notebook N5340 which has just had coffee spilt on the keyboard.

    I am wondering if anyone here has a service manual or any experience with dismantling one of these machines.

    The whole machine needs to be dismantled and cleaned as there was sugar in the coffee as well.

    I have removed all the screws in the base and at the rear where the connectors are and the front of the case is separating, but the back of the case where the display is located is still firmly held together. There seems to be some screws (on the top of the case) under the bottom edge of the tft display, but I will need a very special screw driver to get these out, as the gap between the display and case is very narrow.

    I am not sure how to remove the keyboard either.

    If any one here has any experience servicing a HP Pavilion N5000 series notebook, or has a service manual for same, I would really appreciate your reply.

    Actually, assuming it's anything like other laptops, The keyboard will just pop up when you pry it a little along the bottom edges. (Don't pry with the keys, they pop off, and are a pain to put back on) From there, you really can access all the compnents, and take them out.

    Edit: By 'Other laptops' I mean Apple laptops, so I don't know at all if it'll be the same.
