if you don't know how to do it, don't do it by yourself.

I did it on a MacBook Pro with no experience in laptop components. It wasn't very hard. I don't know about Lenovo, but I can't imagine it being harder than a MBP (which I hear are of the more difficult type.). Spend some time googling "Y series keyboard replacement". If you don't find anything, you could just poke around inside and try to find your way. I recommend starting on the underside of the laptop. Don't forget to remove the battery first.

Yes! I replaced my Y530 Lenovo from this place. My keys worked flawlessly. I made sure the keyboard being replaced are the same as in the pic he provided: http://willtolife.wordpress.com/2008/07/15/finding-and-replacing-a-lenovo-ideapad-y510-keyboard/. Remember, do this at your own risk.

 

Also, comments from the blog also provided more info. Also, search "Y series keyboard replacement" in Google.

I thought it was very simple and I have no experience working on computers.  Ordered a replacement keyboard on amazon.  When it arrived, there is a plastic cover on the computer immediately above the keyboard which has a volume control, power control and some ditigal lights.  Simply (but gently) pry the cover off of the computer with a small flat-head screwdriver.  once it is loose, set it near the screen.  Then, remove the two screws at the top of the keyboard.  The keyboard will then slide out.  Be careful not to disconnect the ribbon yet from the keyboard to the computer.  There is a release latch, push it and the ribbon will release.  Insert the ribbon from the new keyboard exactly like the old one was attached, close the release latch which will tighten the ribbon to the computer, then slide the keyboard into place, replace the 2 screws, then snap the plastic cover back in place.  Once i got the hang, less than 10 minutes, probably 5.
