I've never seen one of these and I can't find any online manual or help file for this machine
You're going to have to work this through from first principles - unless anyone else can help

Its an unfortunate fact that machines from OEM/ODM companies are often badly documented online. The information is often only available to their trading partners, those who take the chassis and build them into finished systems

Sorry for the late reply but I'm sure someone is going to run across this thread and want to send me chocolate...

It's actually quite easy to remove the keyboard, once you know how. This is how I removed the kb on my Q1580P - I think the "L" will be just the same (just a different regional KB layout).

1) Take the battery out. Then you'll see a couple of screws there (one at ether side - there are a couple more screws at close quarters to each other - ignore those). The screws at either side fasten into brass bushes on the underside of the top panel (the one with the power switch on). You'll know you've got the right screw when you take it out - you can see the brass in the female threaded bush.

While you're under there take out the keyboard securing screw from the middle of the base plate - it's in the hole with the little keyboard symbol next to it.

2) Sit the laptop on it's feet again and CAREFULLY prise up the top panel - BUT DO NOT LIFT IT ALL THE WAY. This panel is like a square "C" shape - it sits between the KB and the screen then the "legs" run down the sides to the KB to the silver palm rest/trackpad panel.

Begin lifting this near the screen (probably at the corners is best) then loosen the WHOLE panel (without lifting it away - there's a delicate ribbon cable to the switch you need to be mindful of).

Once it's all loose you need to treat it like you would the screen when you open your laptop and flip it back - so it sits up against the screen - this way the switch cable stays put.

3) Once this panel is out of the way you will see the keyboard screws - there are just two at top left and top right of the Keyboard. Take these screws out and the keyboard will pop up a little - you can now lift it enough to remove the ribbon cable.

BE CAREFUL HERE - the ribbon cable is just a flat ended cable. You should see a black plastic strip where it connects. BEWARE that this is NOT connected to the cable - it is a flip-up hinged cable retainer. DO NOT try to prise this away from the cable socket - you just need to flip it up towards you with your fingernail. The keyboard cable will then easily slide out.

4) Replace everything in the reverse order noted above but be careful with that ribbon cable to the switch. The connectors at both ends of this cable (on the switch circuit board and the other end which is just underneath the keyboard) are the same flip-up type as the kb cable - just a lot smaller!

If you happen to accidentally pull one of this flip-up things off they do actually pop back on, but you'd better have a jeweller's eyepiece, a good pair of tweezers and good light source available.

Good luck!
