How to plug keyboard ribbon cable into the motherboard connector?

I have taken my m35x satellite apart to fix a dc-in power jack problem and now when I assemble it I am not sure how to plug the keyboard ribbon cable into the black mb connecor.  and there is a white plastic strip that looks like it might be used somehow.  Any advice?

First- Be VERY gentle, that ribbon wire is easily damaged from sudden bends and twists. Don't force it in either!!!! If you look closely at where the ribbon wire connects to on the mother board, you'll notice that you can pull out a little black tab.

 

Once you pull that tab out, insert the ribbon wire, and push the tab back in to securely hold the wire in place.

 

I hope that helps!!
