    • Use a plastic pry tool to lift the rear edge of the keyboard.

    • Pull the keyboard slightly towards the display to disengage the tabs along the front of the keyboard from the laptop palm rest.

    • Lift the keyboard up to reveal the ribbon connectors

    After loosening the four moveable tabs at the screen end you simply pull slightly to the right to loosen the left side and then up to loose the five tabs in the lower end, then flip keyboard over so keys face the screen.

    • Release the larger ribbon cable by flipping the brown retainer up so it is parallel with the ribbon cable

    • Release the smaller ribbon cable by lifting up the white retainer

    • I found it easier to reinstall both cables with the new keyboard resting on the back edge

    There is no need at all to loosen any ribbon cables, after flipping keyboard so it faces keys against screen you can simply remove the RAM. Don't fiddle with the ribbon cables.

HP Elitebook 6930p. Huh !!!!

Desingn constructor is the largest manufacturer idiot. Put one memory slot inside, located under the keyboard denotes an unparalleled stupidity.

Thanks for your splendid guide. I don't have a plastic pry tool. A bass guitar plectrum works just as well though. The whole job took under 10 mins to complete. I now have X2, 2GB memory cards installed. This is plenty to run Manjaro JWM 16,04.1. It boots up only using 180 MB of RAM - perfect.
