The "f" key broke.when we press the key the type bar will not go up and make the letter

Take a paper clip and bend a 90 degree bend at the end. See if you can pull the f key back up, then depress the f key and see if the letter comes up. If you pull the key up, and push it back down, sometimes this will cure sluggish (gummy) keys.

It is possible that the spring under the key is broken, but look for staples, paper clips, etc under the key.

If you take 2 paper clips bent at 90 degrees at the tip, you should be able to CAREFULLY remove the f key top (one paper clip at each side wiggling it up side to side) and be able to see under the key.

Also, try this: Take contact cleaner (NOT WD40! It will kill electronic circuits!) and spray the key. If it is gummy, (sluggish) you should be able to restore free motion.

If the spring is broken, take apart a ball point pen, remove the spring, and put it around the shaft of the key, put the key back and, and hopefully it will push the key back up.

But try the spray contact cleaner first. You can get some from Radio Shack (or at least you used to be able to...)

Hi, my key fell out off of my keyboard how do i fix it?

A laptop "key" generally comes with a metal harness as well. Just clip the harness onto the back of the key, then press the key onto the keyboard firmly - it should snap back on. If the key looks as if its not clipped in correctly, push down with a little more force and a bit of a finger jiggle.
My son when he was 2 pulled ALL of my laptop keys off - and this was how i got them back on.

My 3 y/o knocked keys off the laptop keyboard. How do I reattach? Only the key face cameoff the plastic clip is still in place.

If the clips are still in place then place the key over the clip align the key cap so it is in line with the other keys and press down on the key cap until it clicks onto the clips.

My 2 key on the numpad of my acer aspire 9300 has broken off how can i put it back on

Look to see if the small rings or squares under the key are intact. You can carefully with a sharp item lift off another key cap, they usually just un clip and lift off. Don't pry to hard if it doesn't come off easily so you don't break another one. If it comes off with the clips still on the keyboard, examine how they are positioned, see if your #2 keys clips are not separated or broken. Separated, you usually can compare to the other key cap you removed and if not broken it might only require a small adjustment, then just snap it back on. Key boards are different but it would be ideal to find a spare or broken keyboard you can use to replace the clip if broken. If it just won't snap back on, you can use "sticky tack" or even a small piece of gum!

Keyboard help

Putting the keycap back on is usually fairly easy. Many will snap back into place if you place the keycap back into the correct position and gently press it down. Look on the back side of the loose keycap and see if it has 4 small clips or if it has 2 clips and 2 slots. The one wit 4 clips should snap back on. The one with 2 slots requires you to get one side of the key hinge into the slots before pressing it down onto the other 2 clips.

If only some of the keys stopped working, that usually indicates a defective keyboard. Try connecting an external USB keyboard to see if all the characters work correctly. If the external keyboard works but the laptop keyboard does not, then you will probably need to replace the laptop keyboard.
