Pulled apart my laptop to pull out the keyboard because it wasn't working right.

Well fuck.

    Did you tear one of those connectors?

    I think what you're showing is that the keyboard is riveted in place? Sucks!

    Yeah, the keyboard is riveted in place despite the fact that there are screws that hold it in place too 😒

    Next thing to try before ordering a new panel is rubbing alcohol and a hair dryer

    e: wrong their

    @squirvel I wonder how necessary those rivets are? If it has screws, they probably put them there to limit tampering. Don't quote me on that though.

    @pacohojaverde you're probably on to something, though I'd be surprised if their only purpose was tamper proof as you need to basically disassemble the entire machine to get to it

    So update, the keyboard is most likely fubar'd.

    Protip: Don't clean your keyboard while in a rush in the morning
