So I took apart the keyboard to clean it, but because I disconnected the cable and the chip, I dont know how the chip is supposed to fit between the flexible circuit boards and the keyboard was unresponsive when I plugged it in. Does anyone have any experience with this type of keyboard?

EDIT: I opened it up again and instead of putting the chip between the two circuit boards, I put it under both. Now the keyboard lights up when I plug it in, but it still doesn't work :S

That is a link to the exact keyboard.

PS. I just unscrewed the sides of my other keyboard and now I am finding it impossible to type rapidly as I used to before I took it apart two seconds ago. What might have happened? How can I fix it?

EDIT: So I unscrewed it again and messed around with the mat that has those little rubbery pads and it seems to have pretty much resolved the issue. I am getting occasional lag as I type though...

Thanks.

Is this an 8 dollar keyboard your trying to fix?
Is it worth the hassle?

Well I guess I knew you'd say that. I was just trying to justify the time I put into it, thinking of it as a learning experience.
Since you can't help, pawn shop time.

Sorry, but it's a bit funny :)

I'll see if I can find a repair manual on keyboards
I've replaced keyboards on laptops, but I don't bother with a keyboard for desktop
