Motherboard clip to secure power ribbon to motherboard connector

Hi,

 

I was cleaning the fan but when I removed

the keyboard and removed the top I snapped

the flip up clip that holds down the power

ribbon cable to the motherboard

 

Does anybody know where I could get hold

of one or a fix to secure it without the clip

 

The model is a G580-2689

 

Thank you in advance for any help

 

Neil

Well thats not a problem Smiley Happy all you got to do is put those 3 screws back into the keyboard nuts and it should be good to go

Hi Abdul,

 

Thank you ever so much the reply but

I have tried that and there isn`t enough

pressure to hold it onto the wire pins

in the socket

 

I have put some Blu-Tak and some

electrical tape but this is only a very

temorary solulion

 

Any more ideas I would be very

grateful to try

 

Hope all  is fine for you enjoy your

day

 

Best regards

 

Neil

Hi Neil Smiley Happy,  

             this video should hopefully give you a clue on what to do http://laptoppartstore.weebly.com/replace-lenovo-g580-g585-keyboard---25-201846.html look at the section saying how to replace keyboard, maybe the screws arnt tight enough, maybe a screw fell out, no one knows Smiley Happy

Yes everything is fine Smiley Happy hope you are well 
 regards

Re: Motherboard clip to secure power ribbon to motherboard connector

Hi Abdul,

 

Glad all is ok where you are for

once not a bad day hear!!!

 

Thanks again for the help but I

think were at crossed wires (no

pun intended) but its the on/off

button ribbon that connects to the

motherboard, thats the lock down

clip that I have broke so ther is

no pressure pushing dowm on

the cable to insure a secure

connection, if that makes sense

 

 

Any further help is much appreciated

 

Thank you once again

 

best regards

 

Neil
