Product number:W2M87UA

help me open my 

[personal information removed]Product number: W2M87UA HP laptop, I do not know the name of this laptop but the  and    Product number: W2M87UA. I took off all screws, but have not taken the CD drive out.  There is no edge to pry apart the silver top that protects the keyboard is flush with the top and the keys barely show.    I have looked at it and there is no way to open or separate the laptop.  do you have links with videos that can show how to disassemble the laptop first. I am very experienced with replacing hard drives in laptops but this one seems to be one piece of different colors...I do not need help replacing the drive, but disassembling, taking apart the  laptop to expose the inside electronic parts???

The only suggestion I can offer, would be to read the applicable chapters of the maintenance & service guide for your notebook which have the disassembly procedures.

The 255 G5 is covered by the same service manual, and is the business-class model of your notebook.
