And glue it to your laptop :)

Otherwise... check warranty or give the manufacturer a call.

morning, not sure if this will help but when my power button on the desktop broke the mister at the repair shop took it to bits softened the plastic clips, and where they go, with the lighter and then squeezed them back together. Does that make any sense? sorry if thats a rubbish idea, Im sure someone will be of help to you. :-D:-D

If you take it to PC world they will be able to fix it.

I had that problem with my dell, and they were going to fix it for me (even though they dont normally touch dells) but the clips 'mysteriously' vanished. I swear I handed it all over, but the man said I hadnt. I had seen him drop something as well, but he denied that.

I ended up getting in touch with dell and replacing my keyboard, quite easy to do. Maybe if you cant get it fixed you could contact the manufacturer

You can buy replacement keyboards and they are easy to install (they are usually kept in place by a few screws on the bottom of your laptop. The manufacturer will probably have a PDF service manual to download to show you exactly what to do. See if anyone on ebay is selling a keyboard for yours.

ebay is the best place to buy another keyboard .I've had afew from there for various models . It'll be expensive if you let the likes of pcworld to fix it .I bought a new Asus EEEpc [1000H] just before xmas from comet and they were tyring to get me to take out the extra warranty stating if a key went on the keyboard it would cost about £70 to fix with carrage costs etc .I declined the offer .

PC World were going to fix my key for free, because its only a 2 minute thing. Replacing the keyboard would be a different matter though
