I decided to install a 60 Gb HD on my 700 Mhz iBook. All went well except for the keyboard. When I initially tried to remove the keyboard ribbon, I tried to slightly pull the tabs around the cable where it inserts into the motherboard. But, the one tab snapped. Therefore the keyboard ribbon isnt securely inserted. I tried pushing it in as much as it will go, and then electrical taped it into place. This partially worked. The keyboard works except for the A,Z,Delete and Eject keys. Is there any way to fix this (ie a cable connector of some sort since that is the only place where it broke)? Or will I have to bite the bullet and buy a whole new keyboard? Thanks
