laptop help

hi...
i've got a toshiba satalitte laptop that had a stick keyboard

i took hte keyboard out but now when I have put it back it doesn't work at all.

I think it's something to with the flat plastic cable thing... it doesn't feel like it's clicking into place or anything like I would have expected...
is there a technique to do this?

cheers

    it's sort of working now.
    sometimes bleeps when it turns on other times doesn't.

    then as you are using it it will do a single dink noise... maybe it's just a bad keyboard.

    How do you take a laptop keyboard apart? I only thought you could pull the keys off. I've got a few non-working keys, does anyone know how to do this to a fujitsu-siemens?

    Every laptop is different, its usually best to query the makers of the laptops site as they usually have documents on how to take it apart for the IT ppl that need to replace the keyboards like myself :)

    On mine I just un-cliped the strip that's above the keybord covering the hinge and the other buttons.
    Un-scewed 4 screws that hold the keyboard down.
    Fliped the keyboard over and unplugged the flat cable.
    Then I cleaned the back and took off all the keys and clean those... looked like the last owner had a tea/coffee/coke spill

    I just spilt water all over my laptop keyboard, then 2 minutes later I get an email from my subscription to this thread. Coinkydink. I can now add the letter 'cue' and the exclamation mark / one key to the keys that no longer work.
