The ribbon cable is secured by a plastic pressure tab. If you feel/pull around the edges of the plastic socket you should be able to pull up the tab. Slide the ribbon cable in and press the tab back down. This will secure the ribbon cable in place.

Need to re-attach keyboard cable

remove all bottom screws out of the laptop, Including beneath the battery. Some are actually labeled "keyboard"
Then pry off keyboard and the above plastic trim between screen and keyboard.
You will now have access to the keyboard ribbon cable connection. The brown clip on bottom of slots needs to be pried out abit, Then slide cable connection into slot very straight and slow. Once it is in as far as it will go, push the brown plastic clip back in place to lock ribbon cable securely into it's place. There is probably 2 cables on your machine.
Then reassemble.

DO make sure the battery is out and machine is unplugged before starting procedure

Seem to be a screw in the case under keyboard how

with the laptop over on its back you will see two screw holes seperated apart by a couple inches right in the middle of the case. These screw holes are in the middle of two recesses molded into the case bottom. The screw on the right is the screw that releases the keyboard. Once this screw is removed, the only other thing holding the laptop keyboard is the 5 retaining tabs along the bottom of the keyboard. Release these and rotate the keyboard up and release the cable from the motherboard.
