If the tiny plastic hinges are still attached to the keyboard then place th W key over these hinges align it with the other keys and press down on the W key until it clicks onto these hinges.

    Chris - it worked! Fortunately everything was intact so it popped on right away. I had been afraid of trying anything as simple as you suggested in case I damaged it further. Cheers.

I accidentally took the number nine key and cant attach it back


I have rarely been able to reattach a key to the keyboard. Replacement keys cost $5, but you will still have the problem of trying to reattach. I recommend that you buy another keyboard for $17 delivered. Replacement of the keyboard is simple and fast.

Have a Toshiba Satellite L505. My key was sticking, so I removed it. Under the A key are two smaller plastic pieces. Now I can't figure out how to reattach the key. Thanks!


LOL, it's much easier to just replace the keyboard. You can spend hours trying to get that key back on even if it can be put back on. You might have broken one of the little plastic catches.

I was cleaning my laptop keyboard and accidentally popped off the 'N' key, I'm pretty sure the brackets are still intact, but I don't know how to reattach it, could you explain how please?


Hello and welcome to FixYa,

Carefully remove the cap from any other working key so the key retainer stays connected to the keyboard.
keyboard-key-repair-2.jpg Take a closer look at the key retainer, it's connected to the keyboard at four different points.keyboard-key-repair-3.jpg Assemble the disconnected retainer the same way as one on the keyboard and put it back in place.keyboard-key-repair-4.jpg Put the key cap on the retainer and snap the cap back in place.keyboard-key-repair-5.jpg

It is that simple! They should just 'snap' right back on!

Let me know how this worked out for you. If my solution helped you, please rate this solution!
It doesn't cost anything and only takes a second, but it is greatly appreciated.

The back space key stopped wiorking. I tried to take te key off but Best Buy tells me the key is broken and to order a new key and they wikk reattach.


Usually with a notebook/laptop, it's better not to mess with a keyboard that's not working right. Just replace it.
Look for a keyboard on e-Bay.

My shift key fell off is it possible to reattach it without having to take it somewhere to get it fixed?


Yes. Gather all the pieces and inspect them to see if anything is cracked. If they're ok, then you should be able to reconnect the parts. You can see how they go in by taking a similar keyboard apart - gently lift it from the keyboard and it should snap off without breaking.

How do i reattach the shift key on my sony vaio it seems impossible


Indeed it does. When one of the keys on my laptop popped off I tried for hours to reattach it to no avail. Taking it to a repair clinic I was told that they couldn't reattach a single key either and that a new keyboard would have to be ordered and installed at a cost of almost half the cost of the original laptop purchase price. Fortunately, the laptop was still under warranty so the repair was made in a few days for free.

So, where does this leave you? If your computer is still covered by warranty contact Sony Customer Service. If the warranty is expired, a new USB keyboard can be purchased very inexpensively wherever computers and computer accessories are sold.

My laptop n key does't work, what do i do. it works if i press it hard


The solution may be as simple as popping the key up and then reattaching it. Most likely the key is not sitting as flat and even with the other keys. If that is the case you will want to pry the key up until it comes off and then reattach the key. doing this will realign the scissor action components of the key.
The worst case scenario is that you will need to replace the keyboard. Depending on your ability to open up the laptop,.. you may be able to do the replacement yourself,.. if not,.. you will need to take it in or send it off for repair. I have been doing electronic repair professionally for many years,.. let me know if you need further assistance. have a great evening

Need to reattach the W key on my Fujitsu Lifebook P7230


You may have broken a plastic "hinge", more like a tab or clip. Try taking it off again and examine the underside of the key. If it looks ok, try putting it back on. If a plastic tab/clip is broken on the left side, you should be able to go to a small computer repair shop and get a replacement key for it. That way you don't have to replace the keyboard.

I had the same issue, I oredered another keyboard from E-bay and it was $20 and if you look up the installation instructions it takes 2 minutes to install.

Trying to put the keys back on will give you a heart attack!! The new keyboard that you will get allows them to snap back on with no effort.

I have to small children so I should know.
