Can anyone help me figure out how to get a key back on the keyboard? I accidentally popped off the 'tab' key and can't seem to get it back on. I currently have three parts: a black square like piece of plastic, the key itself, a smaller black square. So far, I have managed to figure out, I think, how the squares fit back together, but I can't seem to get both sides to click onto the keyboard itself. If anyone has any hints, suggestions, or help, let me know!

you can simply put the popped key from your keyboard by just aligning the strip to the bottom. if still keep popping out then have your keyboard replace if the laptop has warranty you can call the dell phone support.
You should be able to just pop off another key from your keyboard using a flat screwdriver. Then just compare how that key looks and reassemble the plastic components and the key just snaps back on. Also you may want to check your warranty at support.dell.com under warranty status and enter your service tag. If you are under warranty dell will replace it. Also ebay dell keyboards are cheap to buy and easy to install just two screws and a simple cable. If you need more help let me know.
This is issue with laptops when you type fast sometime you hit the keys from the side and overtime they come loose or from overheating…the only way is by replacing the keypad…sorry.

Most likely yes, most keys on keyboards can be popped back into place by seating the key directly above the housing and pressing downward until it clicks. If any other parts besides the key were loosened or flew out like a wire clip or plastic housing, then it won't seat or click into place.
On the Keyboard, There should be a small little clamp housing. On the back of the key you should see a piece of metal that is sort of Staple shaped (A non bent staple) Just try and put the ends of the metal into the housing, Then apply a little amount of force onto the key to pop it back in.
Before applying pressure, Make sure that both ends are properly in place.
