Laptop Surgery - Keyboard Cleaning (Part 1)

There was a freeze-pop accident this summer. Some keys got sticky to the point where it was annoying to type. It took weeks for me to gather up the courage to open my dear laptop up... tonight was the night.

It was not an easy task. At one point my heart just stopped. I thought I snapped (broke) the ribbon-cable that connects the keyboard to the laptop. It ended up just being a snap-lock connector. I'm not looking forward to putting that cable back in place. It's going to take some patience and a few extra sets of hands.

Tomorrow I was put it back together and hopefully everything will be fine.
