    I have an issue, I have an asus laptop and I took the cover off to clean the dust from the fan. But somehow both the ribbon cords that link to the keyboard and the touchpad got disconnected. I managed to reconnect the keyboard one and it worked. I got the touchpad in but it wont work. Can you help me out, I can give you my skype to show you the problem.´╗┐

    Hey dude, I just wanted to add my voice to those thanking you for this amazing workaround and to confirm for anyone thinking about trying it that it worked perfectly for me on a Lenovo B series laptop. I literally tried every form of tape under the sun and I could get all of the keys working, but never all at the same time! I was sceptical watching you pull the connector, but it really works great. The keyboard functions perfectly and the connection is probably more secure than it was originally.

    Thanks a lot man, if I had gone out and ordered a new keyboard I would have lost $15 and ended up with the exact same problem. You're the hero that Youtube needs!´╗┐

    Great solution. It helped me to fix the keyboard connection of my son's Dell Inspiron 3520. Make sure to find a thin piece of plastic with the same characteristics ("L" shaped) so it can properly fit, I had to try with three different ones. Thanks.´╗┐

    Gee Kay, in response to your question about the VGN-AW-S4M/S speaker wiring, there is a tear-down video I found here. Hope this helps.

    or search for VGN-S5M-S laptop disassembly
