I hate neighbors! I had given my laptop to the boy livin next door and he returned it with the shift key missing. I will have to buy a new keyboard now 


Hi james,
sorry to hear that your kindness to another has been let down .
to replace the keys or the whole keyboard is not too big a job .
try searching on ebay for a replace keyboard ( in the uk around 20 pounds ) or buy a used one and change the key top
this is a link below to ebay as an example

I need to buy a replacement key for an acer laptop


It is possible to buy individual keys from Ebay.

But if there is other damage to the keyswitch itself you may be better off getting a whole new keyboard from Ebay.

They are not expensive and are quite easy to fit.

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.

Keys coming off my HP Pavilion 5000 laptop


I would say it would be best to just replace the whole keyboard. It's not hard, just time-consuming, & you can get a good price for one on eBay.
