Most of the time no. But they normaly snap back on fairly easily if you didn't loose any pieces.

I have a laptop and both my usb port broke, my laptop is under warranty its a 5732z acer aspire. i want to know if the warranty cover it


In almost every case, NO. They'll consider it User Damage.
It depends on your warranty though and if you opted for a full-coverage plan that covers accidental damage.
If you bought it with American Express or some other Credit Card you might have insurance.
Hope this info helps!

Several keys on my MAC laptop keyboard are not responding, due to the cat having an accident on it. What to do?


Hah same thing happened to me.. but sucks really.. If the warranty is still in effect go on MAC support go to tech chat tell them what happened but don't say the cat deal or they might void warranty just say keys just wore out after constant use because you use keybinds for computer games.. So if the warrenty is intact they will send it to you for free if not it will cost like 20 bucks.. and ask them to send a guide on how to install the replacement keyboard if you dont know how.. but if they dont you can always youtube a tutorial video on how to install a replacement keyboard its really simple I did it for my Gateway Fx and they are very hard to replace keyboards with but I'm sure a mac will be easy.

Hope this helps

Want to trade out a keyboard on R500, have rear screws out, need help with the front


dont know specifically on the r500 but most laptops have hidden clips at the top of the function keys one on the left and one on the right (use a small flat head screwdriver you can usually see a small hole above the key) which allow you to remove the cover above the top of the keyboard and then its usually a couple of screws to remove the keyboard. dont usually have to remove the s.crews on the base.

My s key on dell laptop is sticking , hard to press model 1525


If the system is still under warranty, contact Dell technical support for a replacement keyboard. If it is not, you can buy a new keyboard here:

Repeating 's' key


Well...slightly different :) The reason is still the same. The solution is slightly different.

The keyboard for almost all laptops is also a plug-in and is separate from the rest of the unit. You usually have to remove the front frame from the screen to remove the top frame for the keyboard and the laptop. Screws to do this are often covered by stick-on circles of plastic or rubber. They may even be covered by labels on the back. This helps the manufacturer know if it has been tampered with to determine warranty. If it is out of warranty then do whatever needs to be done.

Removing the frame around the keyboard there will be screws holding it to the bottom frame or motherboard. Once you have removed these then there is a flat mylar cable that is connected to the motherboard, usually at the top. Putting your thumb and index finger around the connector, pull towards the keyboard. It should slide just a fraction of an inch and the flat mylar cable will be free. So will the keyboard. Now, you might be able to take the keyboard apart from the back (lots of small parts may fall out!) You can look for anything spilled or any debris on the part and try to clean it. You can use rubbing alcohol to remove any obvious spills (Coke or other cola products are especially an issue).

Connect it back up (push the cable back in the cable and reverse the process. You don't have to put back on all the frames to try it.

If the keyboard is still having problems try to get a replacement on ebay. The most expensive part of a laptop is the screen (around 200 to 500 usually). I got an entire non-working laptop (just for parts) for $75 once. You should ask the seller if the keyboard was working before you buy it. Good luck, hope this helps.

I need the new key board,for my lap top


Keyboard replacement for a laptop is not quite as easy as a desktop computer, but it is not difficult either. I would need to know what kind of laptop it is, and you would have to purchase this new keyboard from the manufacturer of the laptop. If you already have the new keyboard, please reply, and I will try to walk you thru the replacement.
