    If none of the keyboard keys work, then its ribbon cable connector probably came loose from the mainboard. Jack E/NJ

    JackE; all keys works fine, but not to get into Bios (quicly hit F2 (or others) when start up laptop)

    OK. Good. Shut the machine completely off. Then turn it back on and ***IMMEDIATELY*** start tapping/mashing the F2 key. Don't wait for anything like a logo or backlight to appear on the screen or it'll already be too late. Jack E/NJ

    Do you recall what BIOS firmware version is in there now? Jack E/NJ
  • Also, have you tried to unplug the notebook from the socket, unplug the lithium battery and then press the power button for 30 seconds?
