    I'm having difficulty getting the "palm rest assembly" off the Samsung NP350V5C

    I'm at 7:13 in this video "Samsung 350V NP350V5C disassembly and fan cleaning" https://www dot youtube.com/watch?v=mQI3MdFimsM Or 8:35 in this video "Samsung NP355V5C Disassembly Guide" https://www dot youtube.com/watch?v=tSGw2XLbX7I

    This is how my laptop looks at the stage of disassembly I am at.

    I think i've removed all the screws. (I have 12 screws out from there).

    I've disconnected all the 4 things connecting the palm rest assembly to the motherboard, as shown here

    And I can pry all the edges.

    And I can get my fingers under the left, right, bottom, and to an extent, the top

    (The right)

    The left

    At the top I can only only a bit of fingers in.

    There's something around the centre that seems to be holding it to the motherboard.

    As you can see I can get them in so I pryed it but I can hardly get them in much. You can see some stress in the metal where it is stuck and not lifting off.

    I've tried shifting teh palm rest assembly and it moves a bit as if around a pivot, where it is stuck somehow, but it won't come off!

    I have taken some pictures of inside I don't know if they give any clues as to where it is stuck..

    Any ideas where it is stuck and what I can do to get it off?

    Thanks!

    You must have missed some screw on the bottom side, flip it and search for any screw in that area, if there are stickers, peel/remove them.
