Hello, ive been having a small problem with my keyboard my backspace key has popped out once again and im not sure how to put it back on, ihave a dell inspiron 1545 its only 3 months old the key isnt...

The Backspace key usually clips on . But since it keeps happening , the clip part must be broken. Since it is only 3 mths old, it is still under warranty, you can take it to a local Dell authorized shop or call Dell support, they will probably send someone out to fix it / or send you the whole keyboard which is easy to replace.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

How do you repair a keyboard button that has popped off?

Laptop keyboard keys will "pop" back on just as easily as they "pop" off.

place the key over the raiser. center it and give it a push. if the raiser or key sockets are not damaged it will just pop back in. Otherwise you will need to replace the key.

you can find boards on ebay. Replacing the board over the key is usually better. Many times people selling keys charge 7-12$USD a key where the board coudl be 20-30. Personally i rather get the new board but each has their own choice

The cover to my backspace key came off. How can I

The keys are pretty much snap on/snap off. If you can't get it to pop back on, then you will likely have to get a replacement keyboard. They are about $20 on ebay and take about 15 minutes to replace.

Broke the g key on the keyboard how do I fix it? Can it pop back into place?

Keys on a keyboard are designed to pop off. First, you get the two little white pieces together and back onto the base itself. Then push and wiggle the key back on.

Hope this helps.

F1 key popped off my Presario C700 keyboard! Is there a way for me to pop it back on?

Most likely yes, most keys on keyboards can be popped back into place by seating the key directly above the housing and pressing downward until it clicks. If any other parts besides the key were loosened or flew out like a wire clip or plastic housing, then it won't seat or click into place.

Key popped off keyboard

On the Keyboard, There should be a small little clamp housing. On the back of the key you should see a piece of metal that is sort of Staple shaped (A non bent staple) Just try and put the ends of the metal into the housing, Then apply a little amount of force onto the key to pop it back in.
Before applying pressure, Make sure that both ends are properly in place.

Hope this helps!
