HP 15-D068CA Laptop Repair Manual

OK, I have this laptop that needs a new keyboard.  The keyboard is here and I am now ready to install, but how do I put this keyboard in?

See attached picture.  The whole back is covered with a piece and I don't see how to remove.

I could use a manual if anyone knows where I can find one or how to address this.

Thanks,

James

Before removing the top cover/keyboard, follow these steps:
1. Shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the computer is off or in Hibernation, turn the computer on, and then shut it down through the operating system.
2. Disconnect all external devices connected to the computer.
3. Disconnect the power from the computer by first unplugging the power cord from the AC outlet and
then unplugging the AC adapter from the computer.
4. Remove the battery (see Battery on page 49), and then remove the following components:
5. Remove the service door (see Service door on page 56).
NOTE: When replacing the top cover, be sure that the power button board and cable (see Power button
board on page 69) is removed from the defective top cover and installed on the replacement top cover:
To remove the top cover/keyboard:
1. Close the computer, and then position the computer upside down with the front toward you.
2. Disconnect the following cables:
(1): Power button board cable
(2): Keyboard cable
(3): Touchpad cable
3. Remove the 14 Phillips PM2.5×6.0 screws that secure the top cover to the computer.
4. Position the computer upright with the front toward you, and then open the computer.
5. Lift the rear edge of the top cover (1) until the left and right sides disengage from the base enclosure.
6. Remove the top cover (2).

Reverse this procedure to install the top cover/keyboard.

The keyboard and trackpad are fused together and you cannot just replace the keyboard. You need to buy the parts like the one below.

Or

Can you take a photo showing how the keyboard of your notebook look like?

Are your notebook is similar to the one described below?
