    Your best bet will be to use a heat gun, it is like a really powerful hair dryer.Then plain old muscle and elbow grease with a really good 2 inch putty knife or painters scraper tool.
    Then clean it up good, but be careful that laminate is sharp, I would wear some good gloves.
    Hope this helps out, tell us how you make out.:)
