Go to a computer surplus place. Look for a box of spare parts with key boards in it for laptops. If you look hard enough you'll find what you need and "cheap".

I accidentally detached a button from my compaq presario cq40 laptop but it's not really broken and i can't attach it. how do i attach it again?


Sometimes if you are lucky you can just put the key level where it goes and press firmly but not excessively and it may reseat itself. If this does not work, you should make sure that the plastic piece and the key are lined up appropriately and then secure them to the base. Make sure the rubber stopper is in the center of the key seat so it can press the key when the button is depressed.

Good Luck,

I vacuumed my keyboard and a couple of keys came loose.seems to be a secret to getting them to stay down.Can you help, please


There are two tiny protuberances on the smaller of the clips under the key. These must be UNDER the larger clip as you push the key onto the board.

I've managed to damage a key on my cq60 keyboard. Apparently you can't buy the flimsy plastic fitting on its own so I've ordered a new keyboard. Where can I find instructions for replacing it?


There should be 3 Phillips screws on the bottom of the unit that secure the keyboard. Most HP laptops have a little keyboard symbol indicating the correct screw.

Here is a link to the service manual describing the process.

A letter (t) key came off my Compac keyboard


Try pressing hard until it clicks (better to do it with the computer off). If it still comes off a paper type glue like PritStick would be OK but don't use cyanoacrylate.

How do you remove the keyboard from the f730us? keys are broken and I need to replace the keyboard, but cannot figure out how to remove old to get part number...


On most laptops there is a piece of plastic between the screen and the keyboard. If you get a small screw driver and are careful you can pop up the plastic. Underneath this plastic you will find the screws you need to remove in order to remove the keyboard. If you are worried about scratching the laptop you can buy the tool that professionals use called a spudger to pry the plastic piece up here. http://www.ifixit.com/Apple-Parts/Spudger/IF145-002

Laptop keys


On a presario the keys are hinged with a small metal hinge at the top that fits into two plastic clips and lets the key sit over the membrane of the keyboard. If the plastic clips have snapped it will involve the fitting of a new keyboard which isnt a user serviceable thing.

If it's out of warranty (HP now own Compaq, so it's them you'll need to talk to, but they will tell you the warranty status from the serial number of the machine) you might consider a rubber "roll up keyboard" along the lines of http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/bendi-light-up-keyboard/index.html - these are rubber folding keyboards that can be transported easily in your laptop bag but are still full size.
