I have a brandnew Yoga 730 notebook. Stupidly, I spilt some coffee (with milk and sugar) over one side of it. I have noticed that the enter key end power button are not working well. So I want to clean under the keys. I have stripped the notebook as far as the keyboard and am looking at the back of the keyboard in the chassis. But I don't know how to go futher from this point. The keyboard seems to be conected. But not by screws I can undo. Anybody?

First, usually (not always), liquids get into the electronics so that even if you get rid of the sticking, the unit is never reliable. Coffee with sugar is a bad combination. The coffee is acidic and the sugar is nearly impossible to completely remove. I believe that if you sent it in for a paid-for repair, they would replace the entire top surface - keyboard and bezel. Having said that, I have replaced the keyboards by themselves on very similar machines, but never a 730. What I found was there were a very large number of very tiny screws that held the keyboard in from the back. There were about 20 around the outside edge and a similar number scattered throughout the field. I searched eBay for keyboard followed by my model and found a mixture of top assemblies and keyboards by themselves. If you can get it apart, you can certainly try cleaning it, but I decided that I didn't want to take it apart twice so I replaced the keyboard
