You don't have to buy a whole new keyboard to replace few keys. Try taking off the key cap and its retainer clips (plastic pieces underneath the key cap). Repair it yourself with the help of this video:

If you don't want to pay for servicing, use an external flexible USB keyboard. Check it fits in the bag.

I need 2 keys for my p205-6287


you can order a replacement keyboard from ebay and replace the whole thing. its a couple of screws and when pulling apart the laptop you must be careful of the clips. Also they probably sell them by the key on there.

Loose keys on keyboard


I had the same problem when i bought my new laptop, I turned it off and forced them back in they are quite hard to get back in. If its an old qwerty keyboard, then it needs replacing, the letters will never type what they should ever again.
