Replacing a HP G Series Keyboard
on a HP G62 and the little plastic retainer clip that is suppose to hold the ribbon cable to the motherboard connector broke. Tiny tabs on the ends of the clip broke off. I slid the ribbon cable into the connector, taped the cable in place, and powered it up. The new keyboard is not working though I believe the cable is making connection because Device Manager indicates the keyboard is working. System works fine with external USB keyboard.

This PC had water spilled on it a couple of weeks ago and is completely dry now. Everything works except for the keyboard. Any ideas?
You may use the usb keyboard with it...!
also check the keyboard is not dryed completely...!
Do it dry and it will be fine...!
