Key came off while cleaning. How to replace?

My ,< key has come off completely. It doesn't look broken, it just looks like it popped off. It has a couple little plastic connectors of some kind under the key. I am lost on how to re-install this key. Any blown-up instruction pics or illustrations out there? Thanks

Hey there Randall, the inside of the key should have all the connectors required therefore you should be able to orientate it correctly above and just pop it back in place with some downward force. If this isnt working, try pulling up what may be left in the place where the key was. If you can get something out try reattaching that to the base of the key and then begin placement again. If unable to accomplish this then the plastic connectors have boken and it is time for a new keyboard. Nothing lasts forever. Good luck!

My volume control keeps popping on and off my screen when i use my Logitech key board cover


Have you popped off the volume control key and cleaned out any debris? It's possible the key is partially depressed and the cover is finalizing the press.

How to remove keys from mk700 keyboard?


This works for most keyboards:

Take something sturdy and hard but not sharp, such as a butter knife. Insert it under the front of the key just a little way, don't force it. Pull upwards gently. The key should pop off. You can clean them with gentle dish soap and wait until they completely dry, then put them back on. If the key is still sticky, take it off again and use a cotton swap dipped in alcohol (not dripping--rub against the inside of the bottle so it's just moist) and gently swab the area underneath the key. I have cleaned numerous keyboards because I have kids who share my desk tops and kids are frequently sticky. :)

Nope, the KB isn't completely clean - you have a key that is staying stuck down - (usually some dirt in it. Work out which keys - showly working through each of them - then pop the top off that key, and clean under it. Or get a Replacement KB.

What is the problem why the arrow keys functioning differently.


Disconnect and reconnect your computer keyboard, then restart your computer.

Sometimes a poor connection can result in keys not working on your keyboard


Update the device driver for your keyboard by going to the manufacturer's website of your keyboard, and then download and install the latest driver matching the brand and model number of your keyboard.



Disconnect your keyboard from your computer and inspect the pins in the keyboard connector if you have a PS/2 connector.


The PS/2 connector for your keyboard has six pins, which connect into a PS/2 port of your personal computer, to allow for communication to and from your keyboard.


Straighten any bent pins you may find, by gently using a ballpoint pen.

You must replace your keyboard if you see broken pins.



Try testing your keys using a different application, such as another word processing program. Keys like the function keys on your keyboard labeled F1 through F12 may not work in one application but will work fine in another.


Clean Under Desktop Keys


Disconnect your standard desktop keyboard, then press down on a key not working.

Slip a car key or a flathead screwdriver underneath the key.

Twist the screwdriver or car key until the keyboard key pops off.


Use a damp cloth, moist cotton swabs or compressed air to remove dust, hair, and food crumbs under the key.


Use only water or rubbing alcohol to moisten the cloth and cotton swabs---other cleaners can damage the plastic of your computer.


Position and press down on the key to snap it into place.

Repeat this for all of the keys to clean underneath them, if necessary.


hope this helps

I have a logitech Dinovo wireless keyobard (great keyboard btw) but my son has popped off the "alt" key. I suppose I could do without it, but it really bugs me. It looks like the key has not been broken,...


I think those are similar to what you find on laptops. It's really quite simple. There are tons of videos on YouTube, here's an example:

Keys go bad.
Most keyboards are capacitive, so it isn't an actual switch under each key, but sometimes it's just crud under they key
Try popping the key off, cleaning underneath it, and replacing they key.

How to replace a key that popped off


Ichand1958 is right, if its broken the no matter what you do it will not go on, but if he thinks installing a key is difficult, how you think the average user will be able to take apart the entire laptop to install a keyboard?? I think you should first try just fixing the key, often the new key will just snap right on. Have a look at http://www.individualkeys.com/ACER_KEYS/ and if that does not help, THEN take the laptop to a shop and have them install the ENTIRE keyboard.

The W key


there is usually a scisor hinge or rubber column spring.if this is undamaged you should just be able to push the key back on, however there are usually tiny pegs which clip into the key which tend to break off, if these are broken you may be able to order a replacement from the manufacturer, you can order a replacement keyboard (complete) either from the manufacturer or from a spares company
