Question about Computers & Internet
Set aside the key and retainer that have fallen off. If you lost the key, retainer, or both, you will have to order a replacement from the computer's manufacturer. As an alternate, you may be able to get a replacement from someone who has a non-working laptop of the same model as your own.Carefully pop off another key from your laptop. Choose one that you don't use frequently, and remove it with care so its retainer stays in the proper place. You will be using it as a model for your repair.
Note how the exposed retainer is connected to the keyboard. It will probably be connected at four separate points. This may vary, based on the make and model of your specific laptop. Study it until you feel confident replacing the retainer in the correct manner. Replace the retainer that popped off your laptop. Once you have it secured in place, pop the missing key onto it. The key should snap firmly into place onto the retainer. Replace the key cap on the retainer that you used as your model. Like the other key, it should snap firmly into place, and both keys should now be ready for use.
