If your key is broken, then you would have to get yourself a spare key and then fix it onto your laptop.You can order your key from a key replacement company. I know a reliable one. They also have video tutorials on how to fix your key. Check out: http://www.laptopkey.com

The letters o l . & , will not type on my Sony VAIO PCG-8112L. What to do?


The keys have probably gone bad on the keyboard. I'd recommend you just get a new one. Replacing a keyboard is actually pretty easy, and you can get the part from online for fairly inexpensive. Just make sure the models match because all VAIO keyboards are not alike. There are several tutorial videos if you need them on youtube for simple repair work. Don't be daunted, it usually just involves a few screws and popping the keyboard out. This isn't anything you should pay someone to do unless absolutely necessary.

The letter 'r' and 't' has come off our laptop how do I put them back on?


Hello,

The keys on the modern day laptop as placed on hinges, and that's how they keep coming up when we press them down.

The problem is, if the keys come out of the keyboard, then we need to check whether that hinge is broken or not. If it's broken, then you need to contact your local Computer Engineer who can fix this for you, as helping you in this medium won't resolve the issue.

If it's not broken, then I would suggest you to carefully see how the mechanism of the keyboard is on your laptop, and place the hinge back on the keyboard.

One more small tip, if neither of them works, then use some permanent glue and try to stick the keys on the keyboard. Though I would recommend this only as a last resort.

Let me know how it goes.

Key dislodged on keyboard


The plastic parts you mention are referred to as "scissors." I know plenty of places who sell these parts for Mac laptops, but darned if I can find a single source of these parts for separate desktop keyboards. It's possible that the thinking is that it's really not worth expending the labor on a single key when you can buy a whole replacement keyboard for $35; whereas on most current laptops, replacing the keyboard is a major expense.
If you are determined to try this repair yourself, I recommend you visit pbparts.com and examine their laptop scissor units. Maybe you will luck out and find one that is an exact copy of your broken one. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Two of the keys r and u will not work. Looks like


quick question, if your keyboard is mounted into a laptop it is very difficult to repair and i would recommend calling warranty support. if its a regular keyboard (not a laptop one) it should be pretty cheap to replace.

if you want to try cleaning a regular usb keyboard (note: this may make the situation worse), disconnect the keyboard and very carefully remove the keys with some leverage from a screw driver and wipe the area down with a slightly damp cloth and wash the removed keys under hot running water. press them back on and give it a try, either its broken and you need to replace the keyboard or its fixed.
