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

I think you have lost some contact in the ribbon, I have had luck a few times applying "light" pressure on the female end with a credit card edge.  Try Ebay gor a replacement if need be!

Okay this is getting worse, while I was playing some games(Dota 2 and tf2) my computer a BSOD suddenly appeared. I didn't had enough time to read the error message because it restarted. Is it possible that my keyboard cause this? Another thing that might cause it is overheating since my temperature monitor wasn't on at that time. Please help. Before my keyboard became broken,  already had 2 screws missing under my laptop but it has never affected my system. My keyboard is still broken. PLEASE HELP

Do you or a friend have a wireless key board?  Handy trick I have unplugged the LT key board and used a the wireless to check key issues, it is also nice to check things out before buttoning up.  Their may be be some other ideas from more savvy folks.

IMO replace it below a couple of links that should get you started.
