MacBook after logic board change some keyboard keys dont work

Hi guys.

In the last week had a problem with my Macbook (Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13"(White-09) S Ident: Early 2009 - MB881LL/A - MacBook5,2 - A1181 - 2300), I took for technical assistance and informed me that the problem was the logic board.

I decided to change the logic board on his own and presented some questions to make an upgrade here: Replace Logic Board MacBook, early to mid 2009

I replaced the board 820-2496-A (2.0GHz) 661-5242 by (2.13GHz) but the Macbook did not initialize. Do not plug the combo drive connector and turned on.

But some keyboard keys are not responding (red below), and I'm stuck at the login screen.

Possible that you damaged the keyboard ribbon cable. Reseat it and try again. Be careful, they are quite delicate.

Reset, but continued with the same problem.

I can buy this cable on iFixit?


Please. Someone could tell me if there is some difference between the topcase MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.13 13-Inch (White - Mid-2009) and MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13-Inch (White - Early 2009)?
