Cheers for the replies guys,
My bad those pictures are misleading, as I took the photos while the keyboard was lying ontop of the exposed motherboard underneath.
there are no actuall wires on the keyboard, everything runs to the back of the keyboard via the brown ribbon strip(pic one in previos post). The black connector seen in pic one is the only connection between the laptop and the keyboard. Somwhere in those pins will be the power. The circuit board that you see on Pic one is the control for the mouse nipple and mouse keys.
the second picture is the cursor key off the laptop I removed to see the contacts below as it is a simmilar to that of the power button (I didnt want to **** up the power button and not be able to use the lappy anymore). This pic was taken with the keyboard ontop of the exposed laptop beneath. Both sides of that contact are insulated by rubber.
Pic 3 is a picture of the power button with only the harware peice removed, if you pull that rubber bit off you get the same as in pic 2 a small silver pad.
The entire circuit is basically a rubber membrane, that then runs via the ribbon to the back of the keyboard. It is a bit like a calculator keypad.
Thus I took apart an old calculator to see how it worked. What I found more clearly was, that there were two peices of curcuit that ran "closely to each other" sitting above that is a large circle disk, when you push down on the key it press the disk, down that bridges the two circuits (switch). This is the same on the IBM keypad, taking the keys off the keypad, you can pull the rubber membrane back. Then with a little persiverence you can eventually get the the top hlaf of the membrane to seperate from the bottom. Giving you the exposed pads. Since this is mainly rubber and solder resist im not sure if it can be soldered onto, but ill give it ago.
Its quite hard to explain but ill put more pics up. Although im new here, i often use the net to resolve problems and there is nothing worse than finding a thread with someone who has had the same problem as you, with lots of ppl posting things to try and you get to the end and they say "fixed it thanks" without saying wtf they did to fix it
