Help with Laptop Keyboard Replacement

I'm having trouble finding a replacement for my laptop's keyboard. All the keyboards I've found have a similar ribbon cable but seem to have more connections than the one installed in my laptop.

The ribbon cable for my laptop

Do the extra connections mean that the keyboard won't be compatible with my laptop even though the ribbon cables plug into the motherboard?

Update: I ended up buying that replacement keyboard because it was that or throwing out a otherwise functional laptop. And the keyboard and the backlight work!

I had to hot glue and tape it in because the original keyboard was attached with plastic rivets that break when you remove it. Besides that it was a pretty easy repair. I'm updating this post just in case someone else has a similar problem.

@sidd065 looks like the connections on the ribbon cable as well as on the connector side, are all different. I would not chance it. What is the exact model of your Laptop. Maybe we can help finding out more about this.

Yeah, it won't work. OP's backlit configuration is difference since the strip is split from the main wire; they need a matched replacement.

I've never tried a HP backlit KB delete because that makes zero sense as it's a dumb downgrade. I've ripped SureView out of SV notebooks and HC editions with bad screens, so I know that works.


@oldturkey03 It is a HP Pavilion Power 15-cb004na. Its an older laptop with a confusing name so finding replacement parts is rather difficult.
