How do I open my ultraportable laptop (Vaio VGN 270P) to dust the CPU and fan? Removing screws doesn't do it.

I have removed all 9 screws with arrows on the back, and I still can't pry the keyboard off this ultraportable notebook. It has been shutting down spontaneously, due to overheating I suppose. I can peek inside with the screws removed, but can't pry it apart, and I don't want to break it. Are there other steps I need to do?

The computer also has model number PCG 4D1L

Thanks a lot!!!

No, my computer is much smaller than that one. Mine is a T series. The link is for an S series Vaio.

It looks like this one:

Here is the service manual for the VGN-T series
Your model is actually the VGN-T270P (pcg-4D1L)
