The laptop keys are fixed to keyboard by two tiny plastic joint.
If you have lost or broken the plastic joints you may need to buy a spare keyboard or the single keys
Here is explained in detail with pictures how to replace keys.

Actually if the retainers on the key are intact you can forgo all of this. simply put the two pieces of the retainer back together so they key has the ability to pop us, so to speak, and slip it into the little metal bracers things on the keyboard...it took me thirty minutes to put my "D" key back on but in that thirty minutes i saved myself a little over one hundred dollars...just something to ponder though...

After 2 months of use my "V" key just fell off. No prying, no dropping and this laptop is immaculately clean. Just a broken "V" key. It will not snap back into place. How do I get this fixed?


usually if you push the key back then put a little pressure in it. it will snap back to the keyboard. if nothing happens. i advised you to contact your manufacturer and have your laptop repaired if it is still under warranty

I only know a system. Disconnect all the electric source, take out the little battery of the motherboard and wait one or two minutes, then put the battery and connect the electric source.

Windows not booting up on my avent 4489 notebook how do i do a factory reset


There is no factory reset on Windows. The only reset is to put in your system disc, format the computer and re-install Windows but understand you WILL LOOSE ALL YOUR FILES and saved documents, music and such. You can do some other things like hitting F8 while it's starting to boot up and get into the boot menu. This allows you to try and boot up in SAFE MODE. You can try this and then reboot and see if it goes back into Windows. You can also try LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION from this menu. This will change your system back to the same settings that it used the last time it successfully booted up. If you have files that you value on the system though I would consult a professional and get their help fixing this problem.

How to replace a key on laptop keyboard


a pair of tweezers a small flat head screw driver and persistence along with being careful and if you get irritated or annoyed stop and have a break and come back to it.

Take one of the keys off near it to see which way around the plastic parts go ( not too hard as you dont want the other plastic clips snapping or breaking off ) and see if any little bits of plastic are snapped - if they are you will need replacements so contact asus - if not and they are still in tact then put the 2 plastic hinges together the correct way around and then put them back in place ( you may have to slightly bend the metal clips on the bottom of the keyboard where the plastic bits fit ) which is where the small flat head screw driver comes in handy.

When you are putting the plastic parts together you may need the tweezers or possibly a paif of needle nose pliers ( being very careful as you dont want to snap the plastic clips / hinges )

Once you get the plastic hinges back in / on you can bend the metal parts back slowly and gently so as to hold the plastic bits and then push the key back on.

You should then be able to push the other key back on and that should be it.

If you need any replacement parts then you will have to contact asus.
