  • You should be able to just pop it back in easily, unless it's broken. I pop keys off all the time. I just put them back where they belong and press down on my HP.

  • They are inexpensive to buy new. You could even upgrade to a cordless.

    If money is tight thrift stores have them.

  • I know you can order a whole new key board pad...hubby got one for our laptop...it was a dell and we paid under $20 including shipping. I think he got it off ebay...but I am not sure. Should be able to buy one. You will need to search and do your homework.

  • Why is he so angry? Things happen. This is a 5 cent problem there is no reason to spend anymore then that amount of anger on it.

    You've gotten some good suggestions.

    I used to be married to someone who always spent a fortune in anger on such small problems. Thankfully he's no longer my problem.
