Check on Ebay, there are several vendors that sell individual keys and retainers. You may also check the price for a new keyboard, sometimes you can get the whole thing at a decent price and you will have your old one for parts. Ebay is where I get all my keyboards and keyboard parts for my customers.

I was wiping down the keys on my laptop. two of the keys popped off. I noticed the white clips broke. Can I replace just the key board on my laptop myself?

You can of course replace a single key as there are many companies selling out individual keys. I have replaced my laptop key from They sent me a whole kit with the plastic pieces and key cap. Very convenient and low in price.

Set it on the space where it should be in the correct way then gently pop it in. Look on the key if there are obvious stress points where it possibly broke. If there are none then it should pop in correctly. If not you might have to use some type of adhesive.

No, you can not glue it on. You will need to replace the keyboard. This is very easy to do on the Dell laptops. You can find a replacement keyboard for a reasonable price on ebay. Here is the link: Best regards, torgo
