    Hi all. I have an old powerbook 1400. I am having soome problems with the keyboard (some keys have stopped working!!). At one point the whole keyboard stopped working. A quick shake made 95% of them work again! However, I need to get the others working. I want to be able to get at the cable that links the keyboard to the computer.

    How do I do this?

    Anyone know any sites that have a step by step guide to opening up these powerbooks??

    Thanks for any help.

    Ok, I have now opened up my powerbook. The problem now is that I have found a suspicious stain around the affected keyboard area + Modem Slot. Somethiing must have been spilled! (not by me). I know this is an OLD laptop. However, I do like it!

    Does anyone here in the UK have any old parts that I could have?? I know its a big ask! Its just on the off chance. I dont want to ditch the laptop. Someone may have an old laptop that is being chucked out.

    Thanks.

    Wow thats expensive. I was hoping someone had one lying around who was going to chuck it. I could give them something for it.
