|My daughters laptop needed a fan cleaning. I took the back off including the keyboard. The keyboard connector to the motherboard was stiff, and it required a little gentle teasing to flip the plastic part up that releases the "ribbon" style plug. After cleaning the fan and replacing the keyboard a group of keys didnt work. I tested system with external keyboard and all worked. I replaced the keyboard, and it now works. |
My feeling is that the "teasing" has broken a connection in the keyboard socket on the motherboard.
I believe this probably means a new motherboard.
Does this make sense to you? The replacement is about £180 - and I dont want to buy the wrong bit if this is unlikely to be the problem.
