This is a hail mary post. My partner knocked tea on my laptop, and the keyboard stopped working. A Dell engineer replaced the keyboard, but still, nothing.
They suggest replacing the motherboard for, wait for it, £600. However, the laptop itself still works, bluetooth keyboards still work when plugged in via USB - so could it just be the keyboard connector cable or similar? And if so, can I replace that part alone?
I will be forever in your debt if you can save me a month's rent here...
p.s. Apologies if this is in the wrong place - tell me if I should repost elsewhere.
