    Thanks for that pointer.  A short "online chat" pointed up the
correct part -- without me even having to open up the laptop -- and
a (sale) price of $42.95 (or $52.40 regular), which is a whole lot
better than $230!

    I'm going to run the thing for a few days using an external USB
keyboard (had to borrow one from work -- the technology is too new
for me to have a local cache of it) to make sure nothing *else* is
going to go south and order one.

    And then the fun begins.  My eyes aren't what they used to be.
