MERGED QUESTION Question from TheSnowSnake : "shorted out keyboard"
I shorted my keyboard out when replacing it by getting the ribbon upside down. It's toshiba satelite l500 -018. OK my fault I know lol... Is it toast?, as it's just a great laptop. It did run fine before the upside down deal. (except the keyboard lost some caps).

You say you shorted it out... but you have no idea what you shorted out? Obviously if it is something on the motherboard then you need component level repair. Sooo... yea.. it is only toast if you don't want to pay for it to be repaired.
Hi, if you use the onscreen keyboard, will it work correctly?
