I believe...that was an actual answer.
If you damaged the keyboard...and it is the device referred to by your error message...I'd say the reply is spot on.
If the system were a desktop...it would be relatively easy to erase suspects. Since it's a laptop...with parts crowded together...it could be anything, IMO.
You might take a look in Device Manager...and see if any devices/functions are highlighted as being in trouble.
You might run the troubleshooters for all the basic functions (video, sound, LAN)
You might also take a look in Event Viewer to see what kinds of new errors you have that might provide a clue as to a hardware issue.

Apologies; wasn't trying to be a smart-ass. Remove the KB and reconnect the ribbon. Hopefully the MB wasn't damaged and there is a quick and inexpensive fix. A KB is relatively cheap (as opposed to anger-management: I know; take a gander at me avatar.... ) and easily replaced in a laptop (5-10 minutes).
