Cat in Need of Attention Vomited on my Keyboard!

by cacolby3

My Problem

Keyboard stopped working even after shop vacuuming up the vile. So I looked for a solution and Ifixit came to the rescue! A local repair shop was going to charge at minimum $300. Apple would not touch it because my computer is "Vintage" its like a vintage bike or car! Does that mean it will be worth more someday?

My Fix

qwertyuiop[]\asdfghjkl;'zxcvbnm,./ <---- Look it works! I followed the directions and the repair was painless and works great! Only thing is the tabs on the bottom of the uppercase broke off. So now I have a little scotch tape keeping it tight.

My Advice

Be very careful with the tabs! Also you can remove any of the screws with small flat head screw driver if you are careful.
