Most keyboards the keys tops just snap into place. However, if the plastic is broken you will probably have to replace the keyboard. Good thing is they are relatively inexpensive.

Keyboard is not connected properly. Stuck key Bad keyboard Bad PS/2 or AT port Solution Keyboard is not connected properly Verify that the keyboard is connected properly to the computer by turning off your computer and then disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard to the computer. Stuck key Ensure that there are no stuck keys on the keyboard. If all keys appear to be ok and you have a standard desktop computer with keyboard, turn the keyboard over and gently hit the back of the keyboard to loosen any dirt or hair that may be stuck in the keyboard. Bad keyboard Try another keyboard on the computer to verify that the keyboard has not gone bad. Bad PS/2 or AT port If all of the above solutions are not able to resolve your issue it is likely that the port on the back of the computer may be bad and the motherboard or I/O board may need to be replaced. b>

If the plastic/hinges/clips are still on the keyboard, then place the key back on the keyboard, line it up with the other keys and press down on the key until it clicks in place.

Can you superglue laptop keys down if they don't click in?


What I use for laptop keys, is a super glue with a brush. This way, when you remove the plastic key and the retainer, you take the silicone membrane if it's not sticking in place and turn it around, brushing super glue on the round circle and sticking it back. Let it dry for a few seconds and then put the plastic key and the retainer back.

You cleaned the rubber under the buttons and the buttons too? All you do is put the metal bars straight down then angle it about 10 degree towards you then put it in like a regular key, but if you lost the wire then.... might need to get a new one, heh.

Acer 3680-2682 laptop---key cover for #5 fell off--other than gluing-which I don't think will hold-do they sell just a key number to replace?


You would have to replace the whole keyboard as one piece, as they don't sell the keys separate.


Good Luck

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

Sony vaio keyboard VGC-M1


Could be that you just need to clean it. Use a air spraying tool to clean out the keyboard. You could also try taking these keys off the keyboard, clean it, and then put the keys back in. Shouldn't be that hard to do. I wouldn't take it in to get it fixed though as you can pay for a new keyboard for less.
