I swapped a laptop screen and top now everything  works except the keyboard. Pretty sure I messed something up but what? I watched a video from the company and followed the directions closely. My first guess is the cable to the keyboard but before I go back in, I wanted a clue
Thanks

Almost certainly the keyboard cable not seated in the connector properly.

I would say your best bet is the ribbon cable from the keyboard to the motherboard was not reconnected fully.  That is what I would look at first.

If it is a straight cable with no connector at the end it is either not inserted far enough or inserted at an angle.

As well as what those above said, was the replacement keyboard brand new or a used part?

Also, just to ensure that something else hasn't gone wrong, have you tried a USB keyboard attached to the laptop?

I only replaced the full top with LCD screen but I had to remove a lot of stuff. I'll start with the ribbon to the keyboard first and report.
Thanks.
