Having problems with your Compaq Presario 2575US Notebook ?

Key fell off

\015 Have presario 2500 series and the "C" key fell off. On the keyboard there is a rubber nib in the center and 2 metal "clips" that face outward; one on each side of the nib. The axis of the clips is vertical. On the key top is a apparatus that extends downward with gravity and is is a "X" or scissors like configuration. The extension of the apparatus make the "slots" for the clips move towards the center of the key. when flat the apparatus is spread maximally wide.\015\012\015\012The key top appears to be pushed up by the central nib and held back by the scissors apparatus.\015\012\015\012Question is how to put the key back on? tried to line up the clips with the slots on the scissors apparatus but can't get it mounted.\015\012\015\012any suggestions?\015\012\015\012Many thanks in advance.\015
