    Ideas on how to fix this?

    Hi everyone,

    I was replacing the keyboard on my Aspire 6930G after books fell on it and damaged some keys and when I removed the ribbon that attaches the keyboard to the motherboard the small black clip that holds the ribbon in place broke (see pic)



    Now the keyboard only half works unless I put pressure on the ribbon

    Phoned Acer and they said that the part can not be purchased at all as its part of the motherboard

    Thanks
    Someone left a note on a piece of cake in the fridge that said, "Do not eat!". I ate the cake and left a note saying, "Yuck, who the hell eats paper ?

    I would use some adhesive foil or a adhesive foam pad to stick the cable in place:

    Ended up using a business card and hot glue to fix it, worked a treat!
