The touchpad keys have tabs on them, chek to see if a tab is broken off. If so, you will need to replace the entire plastic bezel containing the touchpad, the keys are built into the plastic bezel, and aren't made to be replaceable.

The number six button has popped off my laptop key pad, how do i put it back on ? literally the number six number button has come off and i cant pop it back on on the digits parts of my laptop

Generally, if the key will not just snap back on to the keyboard, then there is a mechanical failure of the keyboard and a replacement keyboard will need to be installed. If the system is under warranty, contact technical support for the system (Dell 800-624-9896 USA) if not, most keyboards are user replaceable and replacements are generally under $20 on Ebay
If you post the Brand and model system I might be able to give more detailed answer

The left lower button on the touch pad is stuck down up still works. seems like it is worn or waring out. can this be fixed by me? thanks

Yes it can be i think the button spring is stuck down .
1 try to put the finger on it gently and rotate it clockwise and anti clockwise slowly and gently if it dosent pop out you take a very thin pin or so and try to insert it from down and try to pop it out but be carefull dont apply a force or you can brek the loks once it comes out you press the rubber part down slowly slowly if it comes out it will be in the normal position.and then put back the key by fixing the lock as it was before
and should be ok.
if dose'nt get fix then have to take it for service center.

Loose left button mouse on an hp dv4-1120us

If only the one button is loose then touch pad assembly probably will require replacement. This isn't a big job but usually involves opening the case. Two screws and one connector and button it back up. If the laptop is new you should have this covered by warranty. Cost of the part should be about $30-$70 as well as labor.

If you are lucky you might just have a loose fitting button that you can snap back in to place. With the laptop off try to gently push/wiggle the button down. It might pop back into its mounts. If this works (slight chance) then it might work normally for a while and pop out again. It won't have fixed the wear that let it come loose.

My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.

Touch pad failed.

Look along the top of the keyboard for an "f key" that shows a "touch pad" icon, IF you see it, press the "function key" (along the bottom of the keyboard) PLUS at the same time the "f key" (that you found along the top) and that should "toggle" the touch pad back on....
Also, IF you plug in a USB mouse that will allow you to move the cursor around--but the USB mouse doesn't fix your touch pad problem.
Hope this helps.

Gateway notebook touchpad

Thank you mewms_14904. The problem was the F key. In my case it was F7 that enables and disables the glide pad of my notebook.By pressing fn key and then F7 solved my case.
