I yanked my keyboard out of my motherboard 'accidentally'. So the thin plastic clip that keeps it in place broke...and keeping the ribbon in-place -snug is not happening. How could I replace that clip or do I need a new board. Dell sold me a new keyboard, and then said the clip is not a part that comes with the keyboard. any suggestions?

Tape it down with nylon reinforced adhesive tape, or duct tape, if the clip is not part of the grounding (it is plastic so it may not be grounding).
