why was the upper case replaced?

Thanks for the input. I wound up just tearing it all apart, and rebuilding it. Everything worked fine at that point. I guess it was just a loose clip or ribbon.

Perhaps you have a faulty replacement upper case, OR you damaged the ribbon cable connector on the logic board when you removed the ribbon cable. Using a USB keyboard & mouse (unless they are of a very off market brand) should bring up a dialogue asking you to press shift keys so that it can be properly identified by the system software.
