Broken keyboard keys on Compaq Presario C500 laptop

\015 Nephew's one-year-old Compaq Presario C500 laptop has had numerous keyboard keys pop/break off, including the "a", left "Shift/Ctrl/#" and "\\". He lives in Orange Park, FL USA 32073. Can the keyboard be replaced? Do I need to order the parts first, than find someone to do the replacement? Please advise. I can quickly provide Serial #, Product #, and all specs, upon request.Thank you,Aunt Carol \015

Answers :

Yes, all laptop keyboards can be replaced. do you have the manual for the laptop? it shows you have to remove it and take it apart. or you can download the manual from their website. you can buy a used keyboard from ebay. I don't think they are thay expensive.
\015\012Good luck
