Great, thanks. Now, how to replace the keyboard? :) From what I can see (opening back), it looks like whole system has to come apart… :(

Hi Richard!

I’m not sure—I don’t have the laptop anymore. This Youtube video suggests that a keyboard replacement may be a relatively easy fix, but I can’t guarantee that. Good luck and happy fixing!
