If you look at where the base of the ribbon is attached to the motherboard there should be a smaller off-colored piece of plastic. It is actually a latch of sorts. Pull up on both sides, usually with a bit of force, and you'll be remove the keyboard and ribbon from the motherboard.

I don't have a laptop in front of me otherwise I could give you a visual example.
