Replacing your laptop keyboard

What do you do if your laptop key falls off?  Well, it doesn’t really fall off – most likely, someone ripped it off or you just mistakenly dropped water or some other liquid on it.  What are your next steps?

You can attempt to re-attach the key which is only possible as a permanent fix on select laptops.  Most laptops make it almost impossible to re-attach and, at best, is a 2-week flimsey fix.  For most laptops, you will need to replace the keyboard.  The keyboards may be purchased from the manufacturer and most of them are a 4-screw removal job for replacing.  Some entail more screw removing, lifting, and prodding, and may be better for a technical support rep to assist.
