If the key is actually broken, you need to order a replacement, if it is not broken and is still in one piece it should be very easy to reconnect, you just need to find someone who knows how to reconnect keys

Replace keyboard key

You do not mention which laptop you have.

Usually you can just pop off the keys. When you pop off the key gently. Sometimes you may find foreign material underneath, which may prevent the key from working. If that is the case, just remove the junk, and pop the key back on.

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.

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.
