OK, well, it seems for Gateway, it is different. http://www.gateway.com/about/legal/w...es/8511069.pdf

I know ASUS covers this, but maybe not all.

I work as a computer tech, the keyboard replacement is a work I had done before on different models.

In short gateway said this to me:

since the keyboard is not a user replaceable part we are unable to send you the part.

In order to resolve this issue we can take your system for repair at a charge of $ 199, excluding one way shipment charges.

If you are interested please let us know.

Another option is you can contact a local technician.

That's funny because I'm the local technician.

I would be following S0ULphIRE advice:
some methanol or something similar and clean the contacts with a soft clean cloth.
Will let you know tomorrow how the work ended.

Are you sure you put it all back together correctly?
