Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

My baby pulled the caps lock key off the lap top can i fix this at home


Answers :

Try to snap one side of the key back in place and provide gradual pressure on the key rolling your finger to the other side snapping the other side in place. If the key attaches from top to bottom, the same technique still applies only bottom to top. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair.
These require VERY careful technique to re-install the keytops.

\015\012USUALLY they sit on top of a little "scissor" arrangement that have tiny plastic parts. Getting the little pivots back in place can be tricky and it can be easy to break the parts. You should be able to find somebody that can do it for you.
