I bought a MacBook Pro 1,1 (the first intel macbook) off of Ebay just before Christmas. Two days ago, the stand I had my laptop sitting on (with coffe cup) broke and everything came tumbling down. Coffee got onto my laptop and now I have a problem.
1/4 to 1/2 the keys on the internal keyboard do not work, also, the h key is constantly going. So I opened up the laptop and took a look at the motherboard and the keyboard. The motherboard had no coffee on it. The keyboard did. The connector to the motherboard for the keyboard was clean (there was no coffee that I could see). So I disconnect the cable to the keyboard and I am now using an external keyboard.
I would like to know how I can decide if I need to purchase a new keyboard for my laptop. Is my keyboard perfectly fine? Or is it the keyboard that needs to be replaced?
The macbooks power button, track pad and keyboard all connect to the same connetor, so I disconnected the cable that went from the keyboard to the motherboard cable. The power button and trackpad work just fine. No problems with them.
I hope someone can help me. Thank you.
