Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R40 2722 Notebook ?

I popped the key cover off an IBM thinkpad. How do I replace it?

\015 I have the cover and the small hinge that makes up the operating works under the cover.\015

Answers :

The white hinge assembly likely has two parts to it that make it form a spring in the form of a letter X. You should see small catches for the feet of these two parts on the keyboard -- they will fit properly only one way. Put that back on. Then you can snap the key itself back on and it will be "springy" just like the others.
