2.) At first, the only keys that worked were Q-I, A-K, and Z-M. However, those issues seemed to resolve themselves after I went back through my Mac. I reassembled it and regained usage of many more keys and now it seems that the keys that aren't working are both Shift keys as well as the top row (esc - eject).
At this point I'm stumped. I found that if I plug in my USB magic keyboard I regain full access of my laptops keyboard but the power button is still and issue. I feel like all these issues must be somehow related, but I can't seem to find the culprit and I would rather not bring the laptop into a repairman quite yet since usage isn't urgent (I have an iMac I use for primarily.)
Thank you in advance for the help!
I recently replaced the heat sink in my MBP and now I'm having some issues. I reset the PRAM and have been trying everything possible to get it back to a normal running state.
The computer was having some heat issues and after some research I determined I should probably replace the thermal paste on my heat sink. So I did. Then, after putting the computer back together, I turned it on and a number of issues seemed to arise.
