    My eeePC was very sick.

    On boot, it would spray the screen with random
    characters. If I did get a desktop, I found
    that I couldn't type several characters, like
    v and t.

    A USB keyboard worked perfectly with it, though.

    I Googled 'eeepc 701 teardown' and discovered
    how to remove the keyboard.

    I carefully released the ZIF connector for
    the keyboard and cleaned the black contacts
    on the flat cable with a pencil eraser.
    After wiping off the resulting grunge with
    a cloth towel, I installed the keyboard and
    now my eeePC works once again.
