Directions or diagram of shift key--how to replace

\015 My grandson accidently removed the shift key from my pavilion dv 6675. I am looking for a diagram or directions on how to replace the key.\015

Answers :

There are a couple of tiny components under the each key. These are plastic hinges and a rubber hat contact in the middle of the key.
\015\012If you still have these components and they are still secured to the keyboard, all you need to do is place the key over center of the hinges and press down evenly until the hinges click and lock into place under the key.

\015\012If you can't find these parts, then the only option is to replace the keyboard. There are several laptop keyboard suppliers on the Internet, just Google to find one.
