Having problems with your Gateway 450SX4 Notebook ?

Key popped out on Gateway 450SX Laptop. Nothing Broken. How do I pu it back on. Thanks.

Answers :

First make sure to remove any dust or debris from the keyboard. Align the key in the proper place on the keyboard and gently push down to see it it will snap back in place. You may have to gently wiggle the key as you press down. If the key will not stay in place you may have to replace the whole keyboard. Another alternative would be to purchase an external USB keyboard or a wireless keyboard. Good Luck!
