Question about Computers & Internet
The plastic pieces are very fragile and may have been damaged.
If they apear fine, then you have to place them on the board first in the correct position. they usually cross each other to make a 3 demensional X and the rubber nipple in the middle on the keyboard acts as a spring effect to push the key back up once pressed. look very carefully at how the clips and things are and nakes sure it move freely. When yo first put it on the board, it will lay flat and the rubber nub will stick up in the middle, then you must slide the key on one end in order to catch the groves, then the other side or bottom clips on the actual key will snap into place when pressed down.
once in it should be fine. but if the plastic clips or anything are broken, then it wont work and you will have to order a new keyboard, get a used one off ebay or just press it with your finger without the key.

Typically, once a key is broken off, it's almost impossible to get it back on properly. However, replacing the keyboard is not terribly difficult. The procedure differs depending on the brand and model of laptop, but they're all usually fairly easy to replace and you can typically find one fairly cheap on an on line auction site (about $35 or so). If you search for the support pages of your computer, you should be able to find a step by step procedure for replacing the keyboard.
