Key popped off

  • my delete key broke off of my laptop and I can't get it to stay on.  Is there anyway i can fix this or take it somewhere to get fixed.

  • Most likely the keyboard will need replacement.  What model is it?

     

  • it is an Inspiron 1520.
  • Since it's under warranty, call Dell and have them ship you a replacement keyboard.

     

  • Unless you are in souther california, I dont think anyone is going to be able to help you with that, as keys are pretty rare for BMs.  Try this source, www.replacementlaptopkeys.com, 

    they always have the dell laptop key replacement i need in stock, and even if dell will replace it under warranty, its sure beats sending out your laptop for a week.

  • You won't have to send the notebook for repair - they'll send you a keyboard, which installs in ten minutes.  Chances are they won't even ask for the original back (which means you have a spare set of keys by default).  Beats paying for a key or keys when you're under warranty!
