    I fixed my keyboard issue with the
    The issue was the keyboard backlighting and functionality would stop out of nowhere. This would also cause a BSOD or the laptop would register all the keys being pressed at the same time, essentially locking you out of using the keyboard. To solve this initially I would unplug the battery from the motherboard and that worked for awhile, then I tried unplugged and replugging the keyboard cable into the motherboard. These would on work for a time. Other's on this forum mentioned that they replaced their keyboard cable so that's what I set off to do.

    I bought:
    40 Pins 0.5mm Pitch 150mm FPC FFC Flexible Ribbon Cable for LCD TV Car Audio DVD Player Laptop 6Pcs (A Type)
    as well as a new precision screwdriver set because the screws in this laptop are prone to stripping

    I followed a few youtube videos below:

    I ended up removing the heatsink, battery, and motherboard in order to get to the keyboard ribbon cable. Looking back removing the battery wasn't necessary.

    Anyway, I hope this helps anyone having similar issues with their keyboard. I'll update this if anymore issues arise.

    This is going to be a longshot but does anyone have a PDF of the user manual for the OP LP2? I need it to get reimbursed for insurance purposes. I found the LP3 manual but I'm hoping to get the exact one. Thanks.

    UPDATE: My screen randomly started working at full brightness today with no flickering. I have no clue how it fixed itself but I'm crossing my fingers it holds.

    FYI to anyone still listening:

    Windows 11 has been running flawlessly on my LP2 with 8750 and 1060.

    Limiting to 2.8ghz and undervolting in throttle stop has made this computer MUCH more pleasant to use. The fans rarely kick on and they are relatively quiet even gaming.

    Now that the flickering fixed itself, I will NEVER be removing the power cord while the computer is running again. That was a nightmare.

    Thanks! Been considering updating to Windows 11 but hesitating. Any issues at all? Graphics card? Drivers?

    Please report back in a few days

    Hey all, see my previous posts pg. 507/8 and before.

    I never got around to selling my parts, I just put the stuff in the closet and today when I was cleaning out my closet, I found this dust bucket.

    I completely tore it down to the studs, put it all back together piece by piece, perfectly, and what do you know..... Same problem still existed.....
