These keys attch by a pivot point on one side and a catch on the other. Look at the key bottom, there on one side it will look like an "L" shaped piece of plastic or something like that and on the other side, maybe a bar that snaps into catches on the mount. Now, the mount may look like a scissor jack, that allows the key pad to move up and down. You want to start with the side of the key that catches on a lip, and then you are going to roll your finger across the key and apply even pressure to the pad all the way across and puch down on the other side, this should click the key into place. It takes practice and you have to get a close look at the mechanism to know which side to start with.

ACER ASPIRE laptop PgUbp key came off.

Unless I'm missing something, just put the key back where it belongs. Push down hard, and it'll snap back into its place. If this doesn't work, check the underside of the key. If you see broken plastic, you'll probably have to find a new key. Acer laptops seem to have a problem with keys coming out and breaking (just look at the number of times this question has been asked!)

hope this helps

Acer Aspire 3000 key jammed on keyboard

Hello !

Remove the key carefully.

With compressed air, clean in and around the area of the key.

If necessary, use Blu-Tack or other adhesive. Put a very small dab and press the key.

How can i put the tab key back on my Acer Aspire 5515 laptop keyboard?


If the TAB key physically came off, it's nearly impossible to reset it. I own a repair center and most of the time we cannot repair keys. Once in a great while a tiny dab of super glue will work but most times you'll need to replace the keyboard.
