You probably broke a little tab that connects the letter to the actual button.
Just get some of that thick (foam) double sided tape. regular double sided tape wont work.

good luck

You can use a rubber wide enough to hold h key in place.then, give a little more for the flaps.stick the flaps directly to the keyboard base.you can use small screws or a good glue or mightybond.as for the n key, open the keyboard and clean it.check the rubber pads for breakage.by the way also open the keyboard when you fix the h key.

My keyboard is not working properly although it says it is


I would clean the key board. Take a picture of your key board, then pop out all the keys. very easy to do, just stick something underneath them and pry. clean keyboard, then reassemble using picture. If that doesn't fix it, then I would suggest new keyboard.

There might be some sticky stuff under the keys. It could also be that the plastic, or rubber that acts as a spring to keep the keys sticking onto the controller is getting weak. This can happen to keys overtime.

Try the following:

1. Turn the laptop off
2. Press the keys several times and compare the feedback for all keys.
You'll notice the difference.
3. Carefully take off the faulty key from the keyboard and clean using clean cloth, or ear buds.
- Make sure you know what you're doing as this can damage the keys if you're not careful.
4. Fit the keys back.

If the above doesn't work then am afraid you need to buy a new keyboard. You can find this on online stores like ebay.

hope it helps.

Where on laptop is the wireless key button


To turn on your wireless internet connection theres sometimes a little switch on the side of the laptop or theres a keyboard button where you need to press the "FN" button down by the CTRL button and another button usually one of the "F" keys.

If this doesnt help please respond back with the make and model of your laptop so we can help you better.


Best of luck..

B130 LETTERS STICKING SOMME WILL NOT SHOW UP TRIED SPRAYING


Letter sticking means something got spilled into the laptop, luckily its just the keyboard acting up, best thing to do in this case is replace the keyboard cause even if you clean the stick keys others could go bad down the line.
