Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
If your keys fell off from your keyboard, you can easily repair it by following the installation guide below.
You should have a key cap, one large and one small plastic pieces (retainer clips).
To install your key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing your metal plates on the keyboard.
Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.
Take the larger plastic piece, it must have two larger sticks at either sides that are going to click onto the larger metal hooks on the keyboard.
Take the small plastic piece. It must have a small bar on one side that is going to click onto the smaller single metal hook on the keyboard.
Place the smaller piece on the larger piece and insert its sticks to the holes of larger piece. Make it one piece.
Put the plastic piece into the metal holes on the keyboard. Push it evenly to insert completely. Get a thin object or blade and stretch the plastic pieces so that it clicks together.
Take your letter key, put it in the middle and push down evenly from all four sides.
