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.

Presser foot lever fell off


You'll need a 2.5 mm hex key metric (you can buy a complete set in Radio Shack for about $10 if you don't have metric). AND you will need to cut down the shorter end of that key about half way (total remaining end will be around 8 mm), as there isn't room for the whole key in that tiny space.

Open the light bulb door, it should be easy to see where it goes but you may need two pairs of hands.

If you take it into a Bernina dealer, they should do it for free as it takes like one minute! Hey...you can ask for nothing! Those guys have all the right tools but there's no mystery, so don't listen to any nonsense.

My compaq laptop that i have just broke my mom bought it for me ot even a year ago.my sister jumped and fell on the keys and know my screen when it turn on is upsidedown the opposite that it usually is..


check your display settings. Most computers today have a nifty utility that allows the user to rotate the screen and even invert it completely. Could be located in your system tray (along with the clock) This can also be triggered via a combination of keystrokes, which was accidentally pressed when your sister fell on the keys.

Two of the keys fell off. Its a acer aspire 3050.


the is an armature under the key that holds it evenly flat. make sure that is not missing before snapping the keys back in place.
If the parts are completely missing your best bet is to find a complete keyboard on an otherwise broken machine that is the same as yours.
good luck
