Keyboard and Trackpad not working (Power button working)
Just bought an old 2011 15 inch Macbook Pro knowing keyboard and trackpad are not working.
The Power button is working, but i'm not able to make a PRAM or SMC Reset.
My Question: Why is both not working when there are separate connectors of keyboard and Trackpad? (Connector cable of keyboard seems used but then again the power button and the backlight is working)
Trackpad is not working at all.
What can I do?
Thanks for the reply. Ok sounds bad, None of the keys is working ( i can normally use it with usb mouse and keyboard works completely fine), Battary is from 2015 (coconut battary) 160 cycles, not swollen. No screen anomalies, but a big bump on the outer aluminium body - so it definitely fell hard some time ago.
How could broken a hard drive/IR cable affect the keyboard/trackpad function?
Hi, Just replaced the Keyboard and it sadly it still wont be recognized - But i just saw the the chip above the Keyboard and Trackpad Connectors has one brown, corroded contact (from the back) - maybe that chip is broken... Do you have other ideas?

FIXED my issue with the keyboard and trackpad not working. Same exact Started with the computer shutting down and not being responsive for a day. Then it turned into a couple of days in between uses. Both the keyboard and the trackpad were completely unresponsive EXCEPT for the power key. I tried resetting the SMC and PRAM which did nothing. Followed these steps after purchasing the full kit from iFixIt and BOOM!!! All systems go!!! Plus, now my battery is fresh! These instructions were great - made the process very manageable for someone with a very limited tech knowledgeable. The side-by-side pictures were a huge help - you NEVER see that kind of detail and clarity from pictures in instructions. THANK YOU for this!!!
