Suggestion re-seat the key board ribbons, about the only place you may have gone wrong.

Why did you replace the keyboard?  If it was a liquid spill there may be additional damage.

After replacing the keyboard, did you reset the BIOS?

A reset can be accomplished by removing the battery on the motherboard and not having any power going to the laptop via the external battery and power pack for at least 10 minutes.

Once that is done, replace the motherboard battery with a new one, put the laptop battery back into place, hook up the power supply. Now power up the device and press and hold F2 to enter the BIOS or setup utility and correct the time and date, for best results, choose the menu option Use setup defaults this should get things working again.

If not, please post back and let us know one way or the other what happened.

Bruce.
