Hi,

as long as none of the key has snapped off, just place the key back in it's correct place an press firmly and increase the pressure in the middle, it should just click back into place

My "W" key doesnt respond most of the time and when it does it types it about 12 times.


Hi,

If you have already taken the key off and cleaned under it then it will just general wear and tear, if still under warranty get it replaced if not then purchase another keyboard and replace it. Then your issue should be solved.

The sapcebar had poped off and all the parts are still fine and arent missing or broken is there anyway that I can fix it without bringing my computer back to get it fixed?


Just place the space bar back on the keyboard, align it in its correct position and push down on the space bar key until it clicks in place.

My h key poped off i think its broke i there any


Hi:
Individual keys are hard to put back on a laptop keyboard, but replacing the entire keyboard is not too expensive, I have bought and changed dozens of them, and they are $15-20 on ebay, and not too hard to swap out.

Spacebar on my pc wont snap back on after removal


Looks like something has been spilt down behind the spacebar or much dirt has accumulated in among the keys, or the spring has come unstuck the rebounds the spacebar back to it's original position. You will have to open the back of the notebook and try to assess what's wrong back there. I would asume that your spring has come loose from the spacebar and all that needs to be done is to clip it back into it's position, eithir that or a good clean to get rid of all the sticky matter that is back there.

How to refix key of hp 530


you may try to put it back again by try it but it seems not work since you post uyour question here.

here is some risk.
Download the product manual from the hp support site.
read the instruction how to remove your laptops keyboard, after remove fix it, and reinstall it again.

but it pretty risky because i suggest you may want to do it with people who had experience with it.
but my first time i do it myself there was no problem at all. just follow the manual instruction.

Phantom Key


Try hitting the S key and check for clips, staples, lint, food, fingernails or other debris that may be holding it down, if you can, pry off the key and check it as well, carefully blow on it.

Dell Inspiron 6400 Keyboard key came off


I just got a dell inspiron 1720 and got a chunk of food under a key. And like you was not sure if the key was removable or not. well it was.. I GENTLY pulled it up and it poped off. It has very small groves that clip onto retaining wires.. very small and fragile looking. not saying yours is the same but if you can see under the key since it is up a little you may be able to tell... it was harder then I thought to put the key back on... pushed pretty hard and then POP it was on... If you dont feel comfortable doing it take it in. And like I said yours may not be the same as mine. if for some reason it is broke where it wont go back on, you should be able to order a new keyboard for it, IF you feel you can change one out.

My ibm thinkpad key ""Q" came loose


Situation 1. The key cap and key retainer fell off the keyboard and you cannot figure out how to assemble them back. keyboard-key-repair-1.jpg 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
