This could be a little difficult to explain.. coz the white ring acts as a spring and putting it back on is not hard but difficult to explain.

See first of all on an acer laptop a key has 3 components
the key
the white thing (which holds the key in place)
and a black soft thingy (which actually gets pressed wen u press a button and acts like a spring)
first of all the white ring can be removed and refixed easily .
Youll see 4 small hook like structures on the palce where key needs to be placed ... first place the white ring over there, the white ring has 2 things which come into one another. (try referring to the key where in the white ring is still in place).
now if the black spring like thingy is removed from its place, place it in the center of the ring and put the key on, try moving the key a little, if the key and white ring are put correctly, this will produce a click like sound showing the key is locked by the white ring .. if the white ring is dismantled into 2 parts it could be a little tricky to put them back on.. in that case i guess ull have to check a fixed ring and try and replicate the same for this key

for further assistance feel free to mail me on:

How to remove keys from mk700 keyboard

Are you wanting to clean it? You can use a butter knife or a flat screw driver .to gently pry the keys off. Doe this while pc is off.. Take the knife and place it between the keys and gently lever down at and angle. The key will be a little resistant but will pop off. Sometimes a keyboard has a few keys such as the space bar the are held with little metal bar which can be annoying when placing the keys back in. When placing them back in you will hear a little snap. This just means it is in. No worries.

My grand daughter is displced the number two character on the numeral keypad on my dell vostro 17". i have reassembled the two white plastic pieces (hopefully correctly) but I cannot reconnect the...

The easiest way is to check if the retaining lugs on the keyboard have been bent or damaged, may need easing back into place gently.
Then clip the white spring into the lugs and slip back into the recesses.
Then align the key into place and gently press on the key and it should snap onto the top retaining plastic lugs

F2 key has come off, how do I put it back?

The keys normally just snap back on. They are held in place with a little tab the the key snaps into. If that is broken and the key won't stay attached you could use a drop of glue. But with great care!!!
Or you could just get a new keyboard.

My shift key came off and i can't get it back on

Normally the metal bar is used as retention in order to elevate the key after it has been used.

Commonly, the metal bar should be taken out, attached to the key itself. When re attaching, the metal bar should have plastic brackets on the keyboard where the metal bar must be placed into. It's tricky, but 3 to 5 tries usually solves the problem for me.

Hope this helps

Key button came off

try to snap it back into place. If you can't snap it back into place its because the piece on the bottom of the key or the pieces on the tactile are broke and that would be why it can't snap back into place.

If this is the case with your keyboard then you'll have to buy a new keyboard when you have the chance.

Keyboard key issue in laptop

The metal bar needs to be clipped on to the plastic shift key. Look under the plastic shift key and you can see recess where the metal bar fits. Place the shift key over these recess and push down until it clicks into place.

F key came off

If you have the key retainer (image) you can find some good instructions on the webpage.

If you do not have the retainer you will have to buy either the key or the entire keyboard from ebay. As of Jan 1 there are no keys available for acer keyboards but the entire keyboard is available here and here.
