Suggestions to lock keyboard ribbon onto Motherboard in a laptop
Posted on 2013-06-26
This a HP ProBook. In an attempt to replace a bad hard drive, we accidentally broke the little black clip which holds the keyboard ribbon securely into the motherboard port. On this laptop, you have to remove the KB to get to the hard drive. Does anyone have a suggestion on ways to re-anchor this ribbon short of replacing the motherboard which is prohibitively expensive and time consuming? I know that a USB KB will work but would rather use the integrated KB. This is still a very nice system with W7 and would to make it usable again. Thanks.
