Compaq presario laptop

My son removed the spacebar key of my laptop and cut off the little rubber pad. Do I have to have the whoe keyboard replaced or is it possible to have a new rubber pad put on under the key? I am having to press on the bare circuit inorder to activate the spacebar and it is very annoying as it slows down my typing completely.

    My son removed the CTRL key out of the laptop keyboard and it looks like the bracket that keeps the key intact has broken and is making the key comeout after couple of key presses. Can I get this bracket on the market? The laptop model is Acer Travelmate 4230.

Its the small rubber bit under the space bar


ok you need to unclip the spacebar carefully take off the rubber and replace with one from another keyboard use rubber solution to bond it in place making sure that the center on the board and rubber pad are free from dirt or glue, a good place to dource the rubber pad from is old mobile phone keypads or old childs toys with rubber buttons one of those cut to size and glued to under side of spacebar would be perfect, hope this helps and good luck.

Compaq Presario V4000 laptop lower volume button (just to the right of the power on/off button) stays depressed. The button is concave now instead of convex. What to do?


Does the machine have regular keys (that remove) or a "blister switch" type key pad? Have you tried to use compressed air to remove any obstruction? OR try to pry the key, very gently, up? A LITTLE silicon spray? You may have to remove the keyboard. If you use the Tray Notification Area Sound Icon to increase volume what happens?

Not 100% on your model laptop, but on some leptop keyboards only the middle unit acts as a spring to return the spacebar to its resting position. As far as replacement with house hold items, the only thing that comes to mind is trying a fat rubberband. Cut it so its a strip and double over a few bits to make a pad of sorts.


Best of luck.
