funny keyboard issue...

hello,
i have an hp zeFive200...five being one of the keys that doesnt work, along with six, hyphen, delete, tilda, f2, and other random keys. after cracking open the case and playing with the keyboard, i have found that the keyboard works when it is about fifteen degrees, and any other greater angle, above the computer, but anything less than that, the keys stop working. i figure that this must be a problem with the ribbon cable, and have played with the connection to no avail. me being a poor student in the city, is there any cheap and easy thing i can do to remedy the situation?

thanks
jake
