There's a youtube video that shows you how:

Basically you first turn over the PC and remove the cover to the memory module at the back to the PC. Then you release the screw there. After that turn the PC back right way up and open it. Now you should be able to lift the keyboard off (take care here, and don't use too much force, take care not to damage the cable).

Here is an alternate link for replacement. I would be careful when lifting keyboard not to disconnect the keyboard "ribbon" connected to board. Its tricky to put back in.
