Will the PowerBook G5 keyboard swap out with my MBP?

My MBP has two keys that are not working after some liquid damage, I have a PowerBook that looks identical. Will they swap straight across?

You will have to replace the keyboard. The printed electrical circuit on the layers inside the keyboard is probably cut near the A key and this can't be repaired. Replacing the key will not solve the problem.

There is no PowerBook G5, you might have a PowerBook G4 Aluminum, which has a resembelence to the MBP, but the keyboard's are not interchangeable, at least without modification, which would have to be done to the top assemblies of both computers.

You are correct, its a G4. Basically my A key does not work, thats it. I took the A key off along with all of the assembly under it and cleaned the area with alcohol and a q-tip. No joy! Any other ideas? I do have that G4....
