Re: Button broke off PC keyboard
Is it a flat key or a normal keyboard type key?
If its a flat key make sure the things underneath the key are flat against the key and put it back on its spot and just press down on it until it clicks. You may need to press hard but please don't press too hard or you might do some damage.

If you press any key on the keyboard, the back light should come on automatically. If not, hold down (Fn) function key and press "right arrow" with a blue florescent symbol until the back light is lit. Pressing the "right arrow" key while holding down the (Fn) key lits the back light and can also reduce, increase the light.
Hope this helps
An upside down image - this is caused by unintentionalpressing Ctrl-Alt plus the down arrow key.Restore by pressing Ctrl-Alt plus the up arrow key.ALSOTo change the display from portrait to landscapePress Ctrl-Alt plus a left or right arrow key.Some computers do not have this function.
The enter button will be located to the right of your keyboard. under back space and above shift. The enter key will have an arrow pointing left on it. Usually 3rd button down at the far right of keyboard.
you must first tell the computer to boot from the cd and not the hard drive. this is done-> turn the computer on when you see any word it the top right hand corner push F2 on you keyboard. that will get you into the setup. your looking for boot sequence use your arrow keys (mouse doesn't work yet) when you find it hit Enter now you want to put the CD/Rom in the boot first position select it with the arrow keys and use the letter U (up) & D (you got it -down) to put in the first spot. then hit ENTER then ESC...exit and save then put the disc in the cd player and reboot...the follow the instructions...it's pretty straight forward. If you need more help...ask again. Hope this helps
If the plasic clips are damaged then you can get replacements from ebay very cheaply, just search for you laptops model number + replacement keys, most will come with the clips and instructions on how to fit them.
If they are intact then they will just clip back onto the keyboard, if you tell me the laptop model i can tell you how, there should also be a little rubber "spring" which allows the key to spring back up. for most keyboards they will go back on with the wider edge at the bottom.
Yes you can go into your display properties and look in the settings tab and look for advanced click that and open color tab or the overlay tab, color tab should get your brightness turned up, And if you can't see you can go into your bios and adjust your brightness from there and get it back to where you can see it if you can't write me back here so we can try another method. Ok I hope that helps you out somewhat, Oh yeah you can also hook up an external key board into your usb connections and you should be able to work everything from that too.
