Question about Computers & Internet
Is it possible to take out keyboard ribbon cable connector out from dead dell laptop and fix it to my laptop
Why not just change the keyboard, ribbon cable and all? Or are you referring to the connector on the motherboard? It can be done, if the motherboards are a match. Do you have someone with the skill to do it?

personnally I would not try this. If this is the only laptop you have. now if its just a machine you tinker with you can try it. but for functunality I would leave the keyboard intact incase you ever want to use the portability of the laptop.

I just call it the annoying super thin and fragile piece of plastic that holds the cable in place.
You CAN'T get it anywhere. The ONLY thing you can do is try to find another dead motherboard on eBay for parts.
When you do get a board be very VERY careful when you try to remove it from the dead board. If you even look at it the wrong way, it will break ;)
Best of luck!

I suggest you replace the motherboard. A recent search on ebay turned up three ranging in price from $18 to $85. Soldering a motherboard by hand has a very high failure rate. It's easy to bridge or scratch something and fry the board. You could of course try to do it and if it fails get a replacement board.

it sounds like you did the right thing, i would search google for "Dell D520 keyboard", you should find many places at different prices, if you havent bought from the site before, try reading some customer feedback, and also, the cheapest may not be the best, look for a good return policy and or warranty for the item. if this helps pleas give a fixya rating thanks

This is the link to the R4000 (and ZV6000) Maintenance and Service Manual. It has detailed instructions on how to disassemble and repair the computers.
Hope it helps!
