Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a Gateway Laptop, Model MX6428. I recently went to replace the keyboard as the keys kept falling off the old one. In the process of installing the new keyboard the The staionary connector on the board (I don't know what the name of the board is) broke on the right side which connects to the black connector clip. I don't know if I have to purchase a new board that has the stationary clip in it(don't know which one) or if there is another way to repair this problem. Please let me know A


Answers :

Did the connector break, as in a piece of it came off, or did the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard just slip out?

If the cable just slipped out, then often these connectors are made like this. You will find that the plastic connector on the motherboard pops up, and you slide the ribbon down inside a slot in the connector, then push the piece that popped up back down, where it holds the ribbon into the connector be pressure.
