Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

Key popped out

My 2 year old popped out the left Ctrl and the FN keys with the white plastic piece behind each key taken out too. I can not get them back in. Also am I able to glue the little black rubber piece behind the Ctrl key since he ripped that off too.

    I can not figure out how to put the plastic "scissor" in place on the left Alt key for me to be even able to pop the key back on to it.

White macbook 10.5.8 pop spilled on keyboard


Ooouch ! After you've dabbed up (the spill) as much as you can, you may find some keys sticking ... i.e. when you touch (push) it (down), it doesn't pop up immediately. These are the keys you'll want to clean individually.
You can pop off the key top off (with your fingernails) from the top corner of the key. Once the key-cap top (cover) is pried open, lift the key-cap upwards and detach it from the bottom edge. You'll hear pop's when you do this. Once the key-cap is off, you'll see the mechanism under it. You'll want to clean things as best as you can ... very carefully. If the underside of the key top (cap) is sticky/dirty, rinse/wash it (with water), dry it well (before reinstalling it). Often the "stickiness" is caused by the (white translucent) plastic pieces (at the very top) not dropping flat down (immediately) after you lift it. (You wouldn't want to disassemble the parts below the (white translucent) square plastic pieces. Just clean/wipe it carefully using a cotton swab/toothpick).
You can remove the top (square plastic) pieces by pushing the tabs at the bottom corners ... downwards ... using a toothpick. This "top" square piece is actually two (square) pieces (snapped together), one inside the other. The inside piece is supposed to spin easily/quickly .... if not. it's probably sticky/dirty, rinse/wash it (with water), dry it well (before reinstalling it).
The trick is to make sure you know/remember how to reassemble the 2 pieces (after taking it apart and washing/rinsing/drying it) applying the right connection points to fit ... before you put the key-cap back on . The key-cap is put in place by just putting it in place and pressing down to snap it back on.
The larger keys (Shift, Space, etc.) has metal bars holding down the cap, etc., so it may take more effort to pop the key top (cap) off.
If you have quite a few to do, and you don't want to risk breaking anything, the Apple store is probably your next stop.

Is there any way to make Fn key working as Ctrl, and Ctrl as Fn? I just want Ctrl key to be at bottom left corner of my keyboard.


Hi,
You can download a software "Keytweak", which would help you in remapping the keys in the keyboard, so with the help of key tweak you can swap the Fn and the Ctrl Key.

Popped a key off my Dell Inspiron laptop keyboard by accident.


You should be able to just pop off another key from your keyboard using a flat screwdriver. Then just compare how that key looks and reassemble the plastic components and the key just snaps back on. Also you may want to check your warranty at support.dell.com under warranty status and enter your service tag. If you are under warranty dell will replace it. Also ebay dell keyboards are cheap to buy and easy to install just two screws and a simple cable. If you need more help let me know.

Wires hanging in ice maker area


Look underneath the 2nd row from left in the ice tray there should be a white plastic piece that pops in and out from the bottom of the ice tray. Pop it off. There should be a piece of styrofoam on top of the piece you removed. the white wire runs along the bottom of the ice tray there may be little plastic hooks to place wire along the way. The sensor should fit right where the white piece of plastic and styrofoam you removed goes. Just place it there and pop that piece back in. It really doesn't attach to anything just lays there.
