Losing patience with this keyboard cable
I've been trying to insert the keyboard cable for over three hours now with no luck. Is it just me or is this a horrible design? I've tried to use the tape method, a flat screwdriver method (without the bit), and now I feel like all my efforts are futile because the cable appears to be all bent and mangled making it impossible to even get it through. The tip curls up and since it isn't flat, it only makes it harder to push it through. The blue part underneath the cable is a little separated from the gold lines creating this bubble where I can't create tension to slide it underneath the insert. I have pictures of anyone cares. Do I have to buy a new keyboard cable, wait several days without a functioning computer, only for it to arrive and go through this again?!
Edit: welp, looks like I royally messed it up. Before, only the top row keys wouldn't work. Now none of the keys work, although it still powered on when connected to a power source, but didn't when not connected to a power source even though it's on 100%.. Not only that, but I can't seem to find anywhere to buy this specific keyboard cable.
