3 minutes

Moderate

My Problem

enjoying one glass too many and self dj'ing the already expensive glass of wine ended up costing me another $500+ USD for parts and an hour or my own time. even with care to clean, nothing could fix a few dead keys on the keyboard so a complete case replacement was in order

My Fix

followed the guide, step by step. everything went well - after an hour. everything booted and worked fine. i did forget to connect the keyboard power (for the backlight) but was a quick easy fix to remove a fan and correct.

My Advice

salvage what you can from your broken hardware - i have a backup trackpad and keys for the future.
