A key falling off of a keyboard might be an annoyance, but it is not a reason to buy a new keyboard. Regardless of which key falls off, it can be replaced fairly easily. Although the method of replacing typical letter keys is a little different than replacing the space bar, replacing either of these types of keys can be done in a few minutes.
Carefully pry the key from the keyboard next to the key that has fallen off. This key can easily be pried by sliding a flat-head screwdriver underneath it and popping the key out. Be careful to make sure the key retainer underneath the key stays in place, especially if the key retainer has also fallen off the key you are attempting to fix. Look closely at the key retainer underneath the key that was just removed. Notice there is a notch in each corner of the key designed to hold the key in place. Place the key retainer back into place if it has fallen off the key you are trying to fix. Make sure it is positioned exactly as the key retainer next to it is. Put the key on top of the key retainer. Use your index finger to firmly push straight down on the key to lock the key back into place. Do the same to the key that was taken off to view the other key retainer. b> Replacing the Space Bar b> Turn the space bar upside down and use a flat-head screwdriver to separate the retainer from the back of the space bar key. Place the retainer into its place on the keyboard. The retainer will hook into small hooks on the left and right sides. The small metal bar from the retainer should line the bottom of the area where the space bar will be placed. Put the space bar back into the place where it belongs. Spread the ring finger, middle finger and index finger across the space bar, and push firmly until the key snaps into place. Put the space bar key back in place and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place.

emove sticky tape securing the keyboard cable to back of the keyboard.Part of the keyboard cable is glued to the keyboard. Carefully separate the cable from the keyboard.Start peeling off the aluminum protective film Remove the protective film. After the protective film is removed it's really hard to attach it back to the keyboard because it's deformed.Most laptop keyboards have some kind of plastic separators. These separators secured on the back of the keyboard. Plastic pins are melted on the back of the keyboard and retain separators in place.Push all plastic pins though wholes on the keyboard.Start removing the separator.The plastic separator has been removed. Now you'll have to remove all key caps. Before you start removing key caps, make a picture or xerocopy of the keyboard so you know the order in which keys are attached to the keyboard.In order to remove the key cap carefully lift it up with your fingers.Remove the key cap so the hinge underneath stays connected to the keyboard. Some big keys have a different design. In addition to the hinge, some big keys (Back space or Space bar for example) might have an additional support bracket.Remove the key cap with the support bracket. As you see, the key hinge stays connected to the keyboard.Some laptop keyboards might have blank covers on the left and right sides from the up arrow key.Lift up and remove the blank cover.All keyboard key caps and plastic separators have been removed.Now you can start removing key hinges - key lifting mechanisms.Carefully separate the key hinge from the keyboard. Each key hinge has two parts - external and internal pieces. When you remove the hinge, try to keep these parts connected to each other the same way they are connected on the keyboard.If the external and internal pieces got separated, you can assemble them together.If you following this guide to repair the keyboard, I would recommend to keep all hinges in the right order. The keyboard has two sheets laying one on the top of another. Remove the sheet with silicone (or rubber) nipples.Remove the second sheet with traces.Both sheets have been separated from the keyboard base.The sheet with traces has two layers and all traces are running between these layers.In order to access and repair traces you'll have to separate to layers from each other.The keyboard has been disassemble. As you see it's not easy to disassemble a laptop keyboard and even harder to put it back together. Is it worth repairing? Probably not. These days you can find a new laptop keyboard very cheap.
Yup! you can do that.. carefully... i repeat, carefully pry-upward the space bar using a hard plastic card (I.D cards are best). Clean the hinge with a brush. Press down till you hear a click to return the key back to its position.
The space bar key is connected tothe keyboard a little bit differently then any other key. There is a metal retainer connectedto the space bar key (on some keyboard models). Separate the retainer from thespace bar key with a flathead screwdriver. Install the retainer back inplace as it shown on the picture. You have to engage the retainer with thesmall hooks on the keyboard. Put the space bar key back inplace and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place. That’s it. The space bar key isinstalled back in place and should work as before. If you still cannot fix yourkeyboard, then you’ll have to find a new oneand replace it. Pleas rate my solution on fixya if you are done.
Remove power & battery. Turn device over. There are two screws indicated by "kbd", one about behind the space bar, the other level with F7. Remove them (don't lose them!).
Turn machine over. Open lid (!).
You now need to ease the keyboard up from the edge below the Space bar (when you get it out you will see lugs above the function keys so you can't start from the top).
To ease the keyboard out, you will see three little cut-outs on the edge of the plate hoding the keyboard. Put a small scredriver in each and push back away from the keyboard, lifting gently at the same time; this will free each of those sprung tabs in turn. The keyboard is now free (apart from the ribbon cable behind it: beware!). You may need to lever it up slightly from the side as it is a tight fit, but always take it out from the space-bar side first because of the lugs at the top.
The ribbon cable is held in with a sort of stirrup which is clipped on the left-had side (you need good eyesight to see that). Ease the clip out slightly (less than 1 mm) and you can the ease the stirrup forwards (not up in the air). The cable will then slip out.
Press the FN+NumLock key - you have probably switch on NumLock???
If not, then the keyboard cable has probably come loose.
Look for some way to remove the keyboard. Sometimes a screw from underneath, sometimes two or three small catches at front of keyboard (small gaps in metal plate in front of space bar). Sometimes top plastic bar above keyboard slides sideways.
Keyboard cable uses goes into a header socket - to refit:
Switch off and remove battery and power first!
1. Prise up each end of the socket with a blunt knife - the outer part of the socket should move up a few mm
2. Push keyboard cable down fully
3. Push down each end of the header socket so it is flush with the lower part of the socket.
4. Test keyboard
