Keyboard port clip broken

The clip on the keyboard port on main mother board is broken. I put some papers to press the ribbon wire on port but half keyboard keys are not working. What can I do about the clip?

Do you mean this connector. If so it is a ZIF socket - Zero Insertion Force and it relies on the clip being in place to hold the cable and contacts together. As Steffen says, a picture may assist us in determining the extent of the damage.
