Glue it with either Super Glue or apply Ados to both the key board side and the back side of the key and then press together after 5 minutes.

SOURCE: How do I replace a Compaq Presario V5000 laptop keyboard?

You need a flat bladded thin screw driver to prise off the long cover the runs along the top of the keyboard and just below the screen. Make sure you remove any screws at the back of the screen hinges, and along the top above the battery housing (you need a small posidrive screwdriver for this). You will find there is a screw on the underside of the laptop that holds the keyboard in place from underneath, plus two or three very small screws on the top at the screen end. When all the screws are removed you can lift the keyboard up from the screen end and pull (gently) away from the touch-pad end. Tilt it up and you will see the keyboard data ribbon, don't twist it or pull it as you will damage it.

hope this helps

SOURCE: changing keyboard on laptop

Hi there
Putting the keys back in place can be a tough job especially if the cradles have snapped, your probably better off replacing the whole keyboard as it will be cheaper for you.
As it happens HP laptop keyboards are really easy to remove, if you look under the laptop you will find 2 screws clearly marked with keyboard symbols next to them, unscrew them and turn the laptop right way up and open the lid. At the top of the keyboard look closely for 4 small plastic slide locks, just slide them back and you can proceed to remove the keyboard, be very carefull at this point because there is a delicate ribbon cable which you have to remove from the motherboard.
Once removed your good to go!!!! just follow the instuctions in reverse to put it back together.
Kind regards and Merry Christmas

SOURCE: Keyboard Keys Mismatch error

this could be caused by a couple of different issues:
1st Depending on the operating system you have loaded, it could have the wrong keyboard type or emulation selected.
2nd The keyboard or its cable could be bad, it will not necessarily quit until it goes completely out.

I have a compaq Presario CQ57 laptop and cannot get the up/down etc arrows to work. Don't have a numbers lock key so I don't know how to get them to work again.


Here are some options:
1) Use an external number pad
2) Use an external keyboard
3) Replace the keyboard (a small Phillips screwdriver and a flat head are all that are needed.)

How do I disable the wireless key on Compaq Presario CQ57 keyboard ?


We have several terminals with keyboards that are used by different people during the course of the day. We had a similar problem with the Caps Lock and Num Lock keys. Solution(s): Straighten out a paper clip and make a quarter inch hook at one end. Insert the hook under the offending key(s) and pop it up. You can easily replace the key should there ever be a need. No ham, no foul.
