Not sure if this will help...
I have a different model Toshiba (2805-S302) and I had to pry up a bit
of plastic directly above the keyboard to get to the screws that hold
down the keyboard. On my laptop it's the plastic strip that has the
power button and three LEDs for caps-local, function light, and
keyboard in numeric mode.
One of the nuts (they are round) that are embedded in the plastic
laptop case had come lose and when I tried to remove the screw and it
just would spin in place. I had to use a drill to cut off the top of
the screw to get it removed.
