Hi i have a Macbook a1278 unibody aluminium. Recently the keyboard stopped working completely. I didn't spill anything on it. Is it possible that connector got loose?? Thanks

The connector coming loose or the cable itself breaking is a possibility. I'm not sure you can just replace that cable without having to purchase a new keyboard assembly. Check with the folks at iFixit: The free repair manual. If they don't have a cable, try Mac Repair - Mac Parts and Service for Apple Macbook, iPhone, iPad.
