    Usually keyboards are mounted one of three ways:
    1) their are small clips which hold the keyboard down, (they are released with a small flat head screwdriver)
    2) you need to remove the plastic bezel between the keyboard and the screen latches. Than under their, their will be a few small screws holding the keyboard down.
    3) you may have to take the whole notebook apart from the bottom up in order to remove the keyboard.

    If your system is only making beeps, than most likely your motherboard fried from the liquid in the wine. Be prepared to spend some money to fix your system, cause chances are the motherboard is going to need replacing.

    Next time something spills on your laptop, shut the system off immediately and remove all power sources, ac power and main battery. (That will prevent any electrical damage)
