You need to put a little pressure to push the keyboard through that hole till it disengages and help you remove the keyboard.

Re: How to clean HP Pavilion dv7-6b10ew

If you are unable to open it using those instructions and as you are getting a feeling that the system would break, you can go to the reseller. But you can try other ways to clean the unit and see if it reduces the overheating. I never open keyboard for cleaning the notebook. I normally use vaccum cleaner to dust off.

Re: How to clean HP Pavilion dv7-6b10ew

yes...basically all this is to send forced air so that dust will be pushed out.
