The other day my one-year-old niece somehow took out four pieces of my laptop keyboard, the ones on the bottom-left corner. I managed to put the alt and start keys back in, but the plastic thing holding the ctrl and fn ones is broken.

What should I do? Can it be repaired at all? Do it take it to a shop and have it repaired or buy the parts and do it myself?

Thanks

ps: it's still a mistery to me how she did it, I was lying on the sofa while she was sleeping beside me. I got and left my laptop on a nearby table, when I got back she had opened the laptop and taken the keys out.

What brand and model is it? The keyboard is normally user-replaceable and relatively affordable. Many manufacturers will sell spare parts to individuals (although they don't advertise that service).

Maybe with her teeth? One-year-olds put everything in their mouths. I'm glad she didn't swallow them.

HP are wonderfully straightforward to deal with... in Switzerland anyway.

Start here and scroll down a bit to get the correct part number. Then try PartSurfer (link is on that page), or if that's broken again, just send them an e-mail or google the part number for alternate sources.

How to replace it: Clicky

Quite a bright little girl. At least she did not douse the keyboard with the contents of her sippy cup.

Good luck with getting the replacement parts.

Forget about it then. You need a complete keyboard replacement. Fortunately they are very affordable compared to those a few years ago.

You also got an alternative to hook up an USB keyboard which is even cheaper Wink

I had a similar situation on my Toshiba Equium and bought a new keypad from eBay for a tenner.
Took me all of three minutes to replace it!

Seconded. Keyboards are pretty straightforward. Ebay is a good source, I've had them from there before and they aren't expensive. the ribbon cable connectors can be fiddly but persist and you'll be fine.

Also dismantle over a white towel to stop the tiny screws rolling off the table.

Reminds me of a nice kb I had that my stepson pulled some keys off. They all went back except the G. At the time I was doing a lot of coding for miling machines which used Fanuc G-code. there's a reason it's called that. Rolling Eyes

mr bo says you'll need teeny tiny screwdrivers (very technical!), but otherwise it's very easy on most laptops.
