    Already been to that web site and it wasn't any help at all. Decided to just take it into Best Buy and have Geek Squad try and get the keys back on. Thanks anyway!

The sticks in the middle are going to go into the middle holes of the larger plastic piece. The bottom bar is going to click onto the bottom metal hook on the keyboard.

Insert the top plastic sticks into the top metal holes and the bottom bar into the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. Get a thin object or a blade and stretch the plastic pieces downwards to insert completely.

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.

Check on Ebay, there are several vendors that sell individual keys and retainers. You may also check the price for a new keyboard, sometimes you can get the whole thing at a decent price and you will have your old one for parts. Ebay is where I get all my keyboards and keyboard parts for my customers.
