I was doing an upgrade of the hard drive in a MBP and unfortunately when I removed the keyboard the ribbon cable attaching it to the MBP's Logic Board came off and I can't figure out how to reattach it. I know it there has to be a way to reattach it but I don't want to attach it wrong and have something short out. How would I go about reattaching it?

Go to the ifixit web site, find your year model MBP, look for the step by step instructions for changing out a keyboard. Look closely at their diagram and line up your connector exactly as they show. Good luck.
