I have attached a link to the service manual for the Alienware 15 model. On page 28, the cable you circled in black in your photo appears to be labeled the "Keyboard Backlight Cable". I can't find a part number for just the cable, so you may have to replace the entire keyboard to replace that one cable. If you do a search in your browser for "Alienware 15 replacement keyboard", you will find several options to choose from. Just make sure it is the correct part number before ordering anything.

Hi @icefreak

I do hope that you're right and it is the cable. I saw this question before and wondered if the OP meant the actual connector socket on the pcb rather than the flex cable plug connector. It is a type of ZIF connector isn't it? Good luck fixing that if it is the socket on the board and has been pulled off!
