Keyboard and trackpad not working
Hello everyone, I am new to iFixit Answers, so I hope I am doing this right :) .
I currently own a 15" MacBook Pro (early 2013 2,7 GHz i7), but I am having some problems with it. I contacted Apple and they told me to go to an Apple Store or certified service provider. I guess that would be a very expensive way of fixing the problems, so I hope I can get some help here!
The problems I am having are that my trackpad and keyboard are not working. Only the power button does. I read on iFixit that there exists a problem where the trackpad cable is faulty. macOS then checks for the trackpad and does not activate the keyboard until a trackpad is recognised. I also read that this could be fixed by replacing the trackpad cable.
My question is: how can I be sure/check that the trackpad cable is the cause of the problem?
Is dit een goede vraag?
