It is possible that the connection between the keyboard and the laptop is the issue. If you can figure out how to remove the keyboard, you will see it is connected to the laptop with a flat ribbon cable. Open the plastic clip that holds the flat cable (carefully!!) and then reconnect the cable. If that doesn't fix it, you may want to contact asus to get a replacement keyboard, or just plug in a usb keyboard.
More than likely you will need to replace the keyboard. Take a look at the two little plastic Us that are under the key to see if the tips that hold the key down are all still there. There should be one on each end. Also look at the keyboard plate to see if any of the 4 metal hooks have been flattened or broken off. If you are missing any of these you will need to replace the keyboard.
Do not use glue!
These keyboard caps just press fit onto the keyboard. Line it up and push straight down. The arrow facing in the right direction should give you the right alignment.
If the key does not stay on, you must replace the keyboard as it would be missing the attachment point that would keep it on the base.
Without seeing it in person, it is hard to say.
I am not sure I understand what you mean by the key is locked to the keyboard?
If you turn the laptop upside down you will find approx 4 screws that hold the plastic just above the keyboard remove them and lift off the plastic cover,you can then access the keyboard that is only clipped into the laptop,,be carefull of the ribbon cable attached to it as you now have to disconnect the ribbon cable and then refit the new keyboard and plastic in reverese order....
Unless any of the retaining pins are broken you should be able to fix it yourself. First you need to work out how the clips fit together and then replace these onto the keyboard. Then gently push the key back onto the clips. If any of the pins are broken then do a search of online stores as people often sell individual keys but you will need to tell them the exact make and model of the laptop.
