Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

Popped a key off my Notebook's Keyboard

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!

I accidentally popped off the m key on my HP EliteBook 2530p. How do i put it back on?


I am afraid that a single Key on the Keyboard cannot be replaced for any Notebook.

The Notebook keyboards are very compact, so you might need to have a new keyboard for it.

Please contact the manufacturer to send it to store for replacement.

Thanks'

Popped a key off my Dell Inspiron laptop keyboard by accident.


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.

F1 key popped off my Presario C700 keyboard! Is there a way for me to pop it back on?


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.

Key popped off keyboard


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.

Hope this helps!

B key on my Dell Latitude popped off


Generally, once a key pops off a portable keyboard the keyboard needs to be replaced. It is pretty simple to replace and not too expensive.

Here is an example of a replacement on Ebay:

To replace the keyboard, just remove the hinge cover, take out the screws for the keyboard and lift the keyboard to release the cable connector.

Laptop keyboard


Hi,

If a key is popped up, its better to replace the keyboard instead of trying to put it back on the laptop.

You can call HP they will always replace the keyboard, if the key popped up.

If you dont have warranty you can better buy a new keyboard.

It is better to but a new keyboar, than to give someoone the same money to replace the old one.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
