Laptop are rather tricky and fragile, you have you get a strong thin object, take out the key you want replacing and then give it a clean whilst it's not there there with a dry cloth and place in the new key.
Best of luck.

Tips on Repairing Laptop Keyboard Keys


When you go shopping for a laptop keyboard replacement, it is good to use a parts locator tool. This type of tool makes users to enter their laptop's model number to see exactly what replacement parts are available for it. This ensures compatibility and avoids the hassle of returns and exchanges. The most amazing thing you are going to get is the Dell keyboard. There are several various ways you can repair a damaged laptop keyboard as long as you know what the problem is. Now, there is a step-by-step guide for you how to make your Laptop keyboard, like Dell keyboard work well as it did when you first bought your laptop.

Tip1: The Easiest Way to Fix the Keys
Buy a can of compressed air and spray it on the keyboard if your keys are sticking together. This is the easiest thing you can do to fix the keys on your keyboard. It doesn’t work for all problems, but it’s a good place to start. Make sure you get the air down inside the keys to clean out any debris, hair or food that may have gotten caught in there.

Tip2: Replace a New Keyboard
Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. One of the major problems with Dell keyboards is that the plastic pieces holding the keys in place become loose or broken. You can find a cheap keyboard from Papatek.com or an electronics store. Simply take apart the new keyboard, pull the keys off your keyboard, lay the plastic piece on top and replace your keys.

Tip3: Solve Fall Off Keys
Use a small dab of super glue to replace keys that have fallen off. Dell laptops often have keys that fall off, especially as the computer ages or is used quite frequently. Place a small dab of glue directly on the round part that holds the key in place and lightly press the key down. When the glue dries, you’ll be able to use your laptop again.

Tip4: About the Retainer
Remove any problem keys from your keyboard and look at the plastic retainers. At times these retainers can become broken, damaged or simply fall off. Carefully pull off the retainer, clean it off with some compressed air and snap it back into place. Then put the key back into the slot and everything should work fine.

Laptop keyboard keys


To determine if the keyboard or the keyboard controller is faulty, plug an USB keyboard into the USB port on your laptop. If all the keys are OK on the USB keyboard then the laptop's keyboard is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the USB keyboard also malfunctions then the keyboard controller chip on the motherboard is faulty, then the motherboard needs to be replaced, but this may not be a cost effective solution.
A replacement keyboard for your model laptop maybe available from this WEB site.Keyboard replacement, LCD screens for mobile phones, Ipods and computer equipment. http://www.yallstore.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&zenid=1lrjst3ncshlb4c7frn9bev3c3&keyword=keyboards

Error 0210: stuck key 01


I assume its a laptop. laptops some times get stuck keys, meaning one of the keys has not fully released after it was depressed. I recommend getting some compressed air in a can and give it a good cleaning. there might be something stopping git from popping back up. then give the keys a little work out. just mash the keys a bit. then turn it back on. if you still have an error, then you might want to consider replacing the keyboard. if you don't, it will not harm you pc in anyway...good luck

Replace single key (alt gr)


for laptop keyboard, you'll need to replace the whole thing, the main reason behind it is if a customer needs to replace a single key then the company would just ship a practically weightless peice of plastic were shipping would cost more than the actual part. Also in company invetory of parts there are no part numbers for every key on the keyboard, it needs to be a kit. So that's why they would replace the keyboard for you.
