On the Keyboard, There should be a small little clamp housing. On the back of the key you should see a piece of metal that is sort of Staple shaped (A non bent staple) Just try and put the ends of the metal into the housing, Then apply a little amount of force onto the key to pop it back in.
Before applying pressure, Make sure that both ends are properly in place.

Hope this helps!

Question mark on keyboard stopped working Toshiba Laptop


Do you see/feel any condensation or any dust particals? The key may have either under it. First use compressed air under key. Pop off and clean under and pop on again. Refer to http://www.wikihow.com/Pop-a-Key-Back-Onto-a-Dell-Laptop-Keyboard to do this correctly. If not fixed the keyboard may need replaced.

My number 1 key on the numberpad is stuck


Step 1:
What sort Of stuck ?

A stuck key on a keyboard is one of those annoying things. The typical desktop keyboard has about 104 keys, a laptop keyboard has a few less. The problem of a stuck key can be a hardware or a software problem or the key itself might be the culprit.

Hit the key several times. This will almost always unstuck a key. Clean the keyboard with an approved keyboard cleaner. These often come as wipes. People sometimes spill food and drink that can make keys sticky. Pop the keys out using a small knife or flathead screwdriver. Most keys pop right out and can be pushed right back in place. Look for something that might be blocking the key and remove anything you find.

How do you repair a keyboard button that has popped off?


Laptop keyboard keys will "pop" back on just as easily as they "pop" off.

place the key over the raiser. center it and give it a push. if the raiser or key sockets are not damaged it will just pop back in. Otherwise you will need to replace the key.

you can find boards on ebay. Replacing the board over the key is usually better. Many times people selling keys charge 7-12$USD a key where the board coudl be 20-30. Personally i rather get the new board but each has their own choice

How do you re-affix a key that has popped off? My


Keys can be difficult to reattach. First check that the key and the place it attaches to are not damaged. Try to see how the key is attached.
Then try hooking the key over the back and then pushing at the front. If that does not work try hooking over the front then pushing at the back. Last try a firm pressure from the top with the key level in all directions.

Broken bey on computer keyboard


If the key base or the key support has actually broken you will have replace the keyboard, they are inexpensive on ebay...around 15-25 bucks. If the key just popped off, try to rock it back on its mount either from side to side or top to bottom, you will be able to hear and/or feel it pop back in its mount.

Keyboard key popped off


The key should pop back on... if it doesn't then the brackets on the keyboard for that specific key are broken. The keyboard will still function properly... every key will work fine.

Or buy a new keyboard.. they are cheap.

F1 key popped off my Presario C700 keyboard! Is there a way for me to pop it back on?


Most likely yes, most keys on keyboards can be popped back into place by seating the key directly above the housing and pressing downward until it clicks. If any other parts besides the key were loosened or flew out like a wire clip or plastic housing, then it won't seat or click into place.
