Question about Gateway 4540GZ Notebook
Where can I find a replacement keyboard or just the "c" key for this laptop?
Yes, keys are cheap, and most stores will give you the key, but the problem is most keyboard vendors have 3-4 versions of each keyboard and therefore it will most likely not match up or fix, so spend the $5 and get it right, take a look at http://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com

You can go to websites like:
I have not tried any of them personally but basically each one will send you the rubber cap that pushes the key back up, the plastic "scissor" part, and the actual key itself. Somewhat expensive but it is a lot cheaper than buying the whole keyboard...and a lot easier to replace. Good luck!

This is the closest i can give you. I cannot find this model number online.
But you might be able to go to any computer repair shop and see if they have a "c" key that will fit your computer. Make sure if you do this to take your notebook with you so they can make sure the key will fit.
Hope this helps and sorry again i could not find an exact match for you.
