Inserting keys on HP Pavilion

The number 5 key has popped out on my HP Pavilion dv5, I had trouble hooking it back into place, but I can attach it though if I push the edges of the 5 the whole key tips to side to side. Does anyone know how to reinsert a key properly?

Yes. you will need to take the two clips off the back of the key itself. they combine together and when you put the two plastic pieces together you can manuever it to sit correctly. you should have one plastic retainer on the bottom hooks, the middle inside should go on the top hooks or vice versa. but you must put the plastic retainers on first. then take your key and press it down onto it. you will hear it click. then you are good. be mindful its not extremely easy, it takes a bit of practice and be careful with the plastic retainers they do break. so take your time and seat it correctly. but you can do it!

Good Luck!

Describe how to attach a key back on to the keyboard of an hp pavilion dv5

Most of the time, when laptop keys are popped off of a keyboard, they can't easily be re attached. The good news is that an entire new keyboard is not too expensive, approx $15-20 on ebay. I bought one recently for my daughter's HP, and found instructions to swap it out online, and the whole process was about a 15 minute job. Give it a try!

How do you re-affix a key that has popped off? My

Keys can be difficult to reattach. First check that the key and the place it attaches to are not damaged. Try to see how the key is attached.
Then try hooking the key over the back and then pushing at the front. If that does not work try hooking over the front then pushing at the back. Last try a firm pressure from the top with the key level in all directions.
