Re: 2 keys fell off my laptop
It depends on the manufacturer. I see this on laptops rather frequently and it really depends on the keyboard as to how difficult it is to get back on. Sometimes even with all the pieces, I cant get the key back on and have to replace the keyboard. Doesn't hurt to try especially if it is still under warranty.

With two or three lap tops i have had you have to push a blue FN key most likely this will be on the bottom of your keybord between the Alt and Ctrl keys, then hit a button that looks like a light buld it mayy have a plus on the same key ...press this key while holding FN
The NumLkkey has been pressed andthe letters on the righr hand side on the keyboard has been converted to a number pad. The NumLk key also doubles up as the ScrLk key, this is located near the F12 function key. Whenyou press this key to turn on the Numlk a LED will light up to indicate that the Number Lock has been pressed, press this key again to turn off the Number Lock and the NumLk LED will switch off and you will be able to type letters again.
if you are refering to the blue letters or alphabets which are present on the keyboard. HP designs keyboard with a billingual layout in some Notebook models.
The HP "Blue" keys are indeed the "French" input keys or other language keys.
How to use the Blue Symbols or keys on a HP Notebook:
We can activate them by pressing Ctrl+fn+right Shift.To deactivate, press Ctrl+fn+right Shift twice, i.e. Ctrl+fn+right Shift then let go off Shift while still holding Ctrl and fn, then press Shift again.
When you press Ctrl+Fn+Right Shift it will switch to the the billigual layout. That means the blue characters become prioritie.
For example, if you are in the billingual layout, when you press shift+6 you will get a '?' but not the '^' sign.
