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.

How to Fix an Acer Laptop Keyboard Key

<ol> <li> Power off the Acer laptop and flip the unit over. Slide the battery release lever over and lift the battery out of the laptop.<br /> </li> <li> Turn the laptop back over and open the lid. Look inside the open area on the keyboard where the key would normally go. Check to see if the plastic retaining clip is still inside the hole.<br /> </li> <li> Locate the plastic retaining clip if it fell off the keyboard along with the key. Use a pair of tweezers to set the clip back inside the hole. Line up the holes on the clip with the four raised nodules inside the keyboard hole.<br /> </li> <li> Set the key back onto the plastic clip. Push the key down until it clicks into place.<br /> </li> <li> Flip the laptop back over if there are keys that are not working properly. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the three screws on the left side of the case that hold the keyboard in place. Turn the laptop back over so that you can see the LCD screen.<br /> </li> <li> Push the thin end of a flat-head screwdriver under the LED indicator strip above the keyboard. Pop the strip upward and pull it off the laptop.<br /> </li> <li> Lift the keyboard up towards you until the long ribbon cable running from the bottom of the keyboard to the motherboard comes into view. Unplug the cable from the port on the motherboard and then pull the keyboard and its ribbon cable off the case. Spray out the underside of the keys and the inside of the Acer laptop case with canned air.<br /> </li> <li> Reassemble the keyboard, LED indicator strip and battery.<br /></li></ol> If I could be of further assistance, let me know. <br /> <br /> Thanks,<br /> <br /> LETMEFIXIT

One of the keys fell off my laptop, ow can I get it back on it's the f1

unfortunately the clips that hold a laptop key down are very small and delicate, and very easy to break.. if it has simply popped off.. it will take a little inginuity to get it back on, but it isnt impossible.. usually they have 2 arms with little pop on clips that are very small.. you can get it back on if you have very steady hands and a very small pair of tweezers, but if it has broken the clips.. theres not much hope for it im afraid, you might be up for a new keyboard.. which can be ordered through the manafacturer, but depending on which manafacturer also determines the price..

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.

Some keys popped off...we have all the parts just dont know how to put then back

There should be two white pieces that hinge together. Put the togeter, then attach them to the key. They can only go in one direction, but you can put them upside down. On the white piece the hinges inside the other, the part that clips is going to be flush on one side, that is the side that clips to the key. One attached to the key, spread the away from the key as far as possible. One computer, you will see that it has two clips on either side for the key, one side will be l-shaped. With the hinges fully extended, tilt the key toward you and slide the white piece into the l clips on the board. Press down firmly and you should hear/feel the other to clips attach. It might take a few tries, I usually use my pocket knife to hold the hinges extended while I slip the first hinge in the clips.

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.
