    Like many others I have problems with some keys not working sometimes. Does anyone have information about reseating the keyboard ribbon? As this seems to be the most common fix. Thank you.

    Cable could be faulty if ur keys are not registering, just try reseating first, remove battery cable first, next the big cable black ribbon, use ur fingers, and slowly pull up both sides of lock mechanism.. and when inserting cable again.. make sure the lock is still lifted, and give some movement on ribbon, then press the lock both sides equally, if it doesnt work. get it replaced..

    Pm me your battery stats or even whatsapp me after returning from work.
    EDIT: The OP can use methods suggested by vickygameboy.
    Usually power reset can fix these glitches.
