How do I reattach a caps lock key?

I have had to remove the caps lock key from my Toshiba Satellite M200 keyboard, but I can't reattach it. I was easily able to snap in all of the other keys I pulled off (e.g. various numbers, shift, ctrl etc.), but the caps lock key has a little metal bar on the back of it and I can see where that slots in, but when I push on the key it just won't snap in!

Ok , so i had the same problem just now , and i fixed it , what you need to do is take of the little metal clip that attached to the key , place it in the little slot that are next to the retaner , then place the top part under the retainer , when you do this , the retainer will sort of hang upwards , then put the capslock key back and push it in , it will snap , gave me a headache to do , but it fixed mines , hope i helped you , if anything email me , jhoshuaryariza394@hotmail.com

    It was a little more complex forn me. The two white plastic pieces: The smaller one attaches inside the larger one by the two posts on either side. Then pinch either wide of the larger piece to insert its posts between the metal bracket in the base of the keyboard. Then, slide the pointed ends of the little "trapeze bar" on the backside of the caps lock cover into the slots of the metal keyboard base and SNAP into place!

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.

Toshiba laptop keys stick


Could be some residue from a spill on the keyboard, or could be some old rubber thats not flexible enough. If you carefully flick a key off, you can investigate what's going on under there. The keys snap on and off rather easily. If you see anything sticky on there, use an electronics cleaner, or even some rubbing alcohol on a damp cloth or que-tip to clean it up. Recommend turning off computer completely and removing battery. And go easy on the cleaner :-), liquids and electronics do not play nicely together!

If none of that works, might have to start looking for a replacement keyboard for the laptop.

How do I replace the keyboard?


next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. nboulikas@gmail.com for any additional questions.

The m and caps lock keys on my Toshiba satellite


Bad keyboard. This series have a higher frequency of keyboard problems because ... well .. the keyboard cable got folded by design. Just replace it. The A40's uses the same keyboard as a A10, A15, A55, A60, A64, 1400, 1405, 1410, 1415, 2400, 2405, 2410, 2415 ... and many others. A new replacement keyboard should run about $20 on eBay.

Replacing the KB is easy: lift up the power button board above the keyboard, remove the three screws holding the keyboard down, then remove the keyboard connector cover panel, and you'll be able to disconnect the keyboard.

The Primary Control button broke off.


Keyboards for the Toshiba P205 series cost approx. 25 dollars on ebay. Individual keys if you can find them run about 4-5 bucks. The key attaches to the keyboard plate by two apparatus, the first being a scissor jack looking platform that snaps onto the metal plate over the key button. It will hook on one side and then snap into the other. I have to use glasses in order to pull off this repair. Once the platform is attached, the "cap" where the letter is stamped, should be placed directly on the support and using your thumb, roll pressure from one side to the other and you will hear the cap snap back on in place.
