Having problems with your HP Compaq nc6220 Notebook ?
How do I replace a broken and stuck key.
\015 I have a replacement key and need toreplace it. Also I have several sticking keys.\015
Most keyboards can be popped out by pulling them straight out and replacing them by pushing them straight in. If you have several sticky keys, you are better off just buying a new keyboard and replace the entire thing. follow the instructions on the owner's manuel how to remove the keyboard on your machine as they are different. it usually requirer removing just a few screws either from under the machine or by removing the small face plate just below the screen..Again, all laptops are a little different.
