How do I get the back of an E Systems 3086 laptop

Hi,
I am trying to remove the back of an E Systems 3086 laptop. With most laptops I have dealt with before, you take the plastic panel above the keyboard off which reveals some screws which lets you take the keyboard off and then dismantle the rest from there.

This laptop doesn't work that way. Everything seems to come off from the bottom except it looks like there are 2 screws in the middle that I need to undo from the top.

So my question is, how do I get the keyboard out to then get the back off?

thanks,
Robert

Excerpt from site: (scroll down to see solution)
Hi, I was wondering if anyone here could give me a hint on how to open up an EiSystems laptop? I have undone all screws that are on the case (That I can see, I have removed the majority of the stickers apart from one which I have ran a pencil over but no indentation was there) and I have now resorted to sticking blunt objects in to try and level the case open incase of a hidden clip but that also does not work. I can get the majority of the case apart but there is one area (at the back near the USB ports) that will not come apart. It is an EiSystems 4417 although any information on how you have got a different EiSystems laptop apart would be usefull. Cheers in advanced. GingerNinja

 Problem solved. If anyone else gets stuck... Try sliding the top part (where the power button is) to the left.

The power buton on this one is on a removable plastic panel. There are no screws or anything underneath it however.

There is a website for eiSystems support via the PC World website, however they do not have a service manual available for download. You could try emailing a request for one by using the link below:

I noticed the link above will have to be copied and pasted to get it to work. Here is a direct link from PC World's site to their email support:

Sorry, I just noticed that this company requires a Product Support Agreement for you to use email support.

Thanks for your help but I have found how to get the keyboard off. I searched for G335 as that is the body model number and found http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/laptop/7099.htm. There are little clips to undo all round the keyboard.
