There is no diagram to show you how they go together. I will tell you that they will only go together and work one way. I recomend that you take one of the other keys off to get an idea of how it's supposed to go together. Be gentle and try to get the key off, leaving the retainer.

Letters popped out of computer keyboard


If it is a laptop, you will need to get a replacement keyboard or actual key, remove the old one and put in the new one. A key that is popped off is usually broken.

Keyboard sticking


Clean the keyboard. Most of the keys can be safely "popped" out using a nail file or other thin lever. Don't pop out the larger keys, like the space bar, because they have a small wire spring in most models that can make them difficult to reinsert properly. Use canned air, a Swiffer, q-tips, or other methods (nothing wet, but a damp cloth that doesn't drip is OK) to get the obstructions cleaned away and then put your keys back.

The shift button popped out and I am not sure of how to put it back. I have the sony model pcg-7h1L/


Hi there,
Some keys will break off when they pop out, others just have to be pressed back in place. If it popped off it should just be able to pop back in without any problems. If it broke off, you'll need to get the keyboard repaired or get yourself a new one.

Insertion of letter "s" in typing


That's a bit iffy. Have you spilled anything on the keyboard? It sounds like the key is a little sticky. I'd replace it personally, but if your so inclined, try popping the key off and use a q-tip with some rubbing alcohol to clean it up a bit. Then pop the key back on.

Usually you can pretty easily pop a key off a keyboard, although they all vary. I reccomend using a thin piece of flat rigid plastic to do it (the MacGuyver method would be something like the corner of a plastic putty knife - it's amazing how much tension they can put on a key without damaging it), a srewdriver tends to gouge the key and cause different sticking problems. Of course you do that at your own risk, some keyboards have retaining clips on the keys (especially low-profile and laptop keyboards). You alway run the risk of not being able to get the key to snap back on, or on some models the key comes off and a little spring goes flying and you never find it again. But again, that's up to you. The worst that can happen is you need to get a new keyboard.

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!

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.
