From the above url ( HP Partner Services Media Library ), do the following;
1. Select Laptop and Tablet PCs in "Product Category".
2. Select HP Pavilion Notebook PCs in "Product Family".
3. Select HP Pavilion dv7-1000/2000/3000 Entertainment Notebook Series in "product Series". You need to figure out it is a 1000, 2000 or 3000 series from your own dv7.
4.After step 3 is selected, you should able to Media selection and additional resources for your dv7-1000/2000/3000 at the bottom of this url.
5. Select FRU remove/Replace. A new window should pop up " HP Service Media Library".
6. Select "Keyboard" to see the video and Keyboard removal procedures.
Since Notebook keyboard is quite different than the normal full desktop keyboard, it may not be easy to clean if the coffee got into the rubberized part of the keys.

I just wanted to thank you for this post. I followed the instructions in the video which were very helpful. I would like to recommend to others who view this post to note the following:
If you find yourself not knowing how to get the "switch plate" off, instructions for doing so are also available by following the link provided.
I would recommend viewing the instructions for all three: Removing optical drive, switch plate, and keyboard.
Appreciate the help, no more random asterisks for me!
Unfortunately, the keyboard does not work at all now but that's better than it typing on its own. I am now confident enough to purchase a replacement keyboard and install it myself.
