Not true ... my ENTER on my XPS 1530 wasn't working properly so I took it off and cleaned the hair from under it.
When it was off, tested it in notepad by clicking the button which sits under the key - was working fine so figured didn't need a keyboard.
Then came the problem of getting the key back on.
Not easy, but I did it.
Start by putting the horizontal and vertical clips on the computer.
Then, put the ENTER key down.
Start by clipping the horizontal clip into the top of the key.
At this point, you can still hold it up and see under it.
Next, I noticed that there were 2 possible clip connections for the vertical clip on the keyboard.
You need to use the outer one.
While lowering the key, align the vertical clip with the outer clip connection and lower, moving the vertical clip as much as you can to ensure it's in the right place.
At some point, you gotta just push and hope.
Took me a few attempts, but it's definitely possible
