Hi eugpol,

\015\012Typically, the keys either have a small cross bow type of connection, or they some just snap back on. Look at the back of the key, if it has a round cylinder type configuration, then you can place the key back in it's position and with your fingers, just ad a little pressure until it locks in place.

\015\012Now if it has a cross bow configuration, when you look under the key, you'll find two plastic pieces that interlock with each other. What you do is hold the key face up, and sort of tap the sides to get the two plastic pieces to drop. On one of the plastic pieces you'll find two snap in ends. And on the other piece you'll find it's more of a circle that has a snap in bar across the top of the circle. The object here, is to take the one piece that has the two snap in ends and look on the keyboard, you'll find two teany tiny circle holes that those little ends go into. Plug those in first, then on the other side you need to snap the bar end up and back to snap it into place, and your done. It may take a couple of tries, but you'll get it.

My Dell OptiPlex GX 520 has frozen. It runs Windows XP. Here in the UK, we have had a cold snap in what the papers are calling "The Coldest Day". Dunno if that's got anything to do with it. Anyway, I came down in the morning and the screen was off as if it had gone into sleep mode, but shaking the mouse or tapping the keyboard did not work. So, I tried turning it off and on again. The bootup screen came on, and the bar filled nearly up to the top, but then froze there. I left it for five minutes

I have an hp Pavilion a1600n desktop running WinXP. It came with a multimedia keyboard, and the regular keys and F keys work fine. What no longer works are the multimedia keys, except the "sleep" button (has a little quarter moon icon) - THAT works. The buttons did work before, but now do not. The desktop did not come with any extra software to download or special driver to install. I just plugged it all in. The keyboard is wired - not wireless.
