While i was playing as usual, my laptop suddenly shut down by itself. After some browsing and a little help from my friend, i realized that there is a dust buildup in my laptop. So i disassembled my laptop and i did found a pretty bad dust buildup . After cleaning the dust, i reassembled my laptop and found that the "2","4","5","7","0","~","backspace","i","o","ctrl" keys not working. I thought that I didn't reconnect the keyboard properly so i tried to connect and reconnect multiple times but it didn't work. There were two times where the keyboard worked for a few minutes but then all those keys stopped working again.Another possibility is that i accidentally damaged the ribbon cable that connects to the keyboard. System restore didn't work and there were no virus. So it is most likely because i did something wrong when reassembling my laptop.
My laptop: Acer Aspire V5-471g series .
Any help would be appreciated . And if replacement is a must, where can i find one
