I have this laptop. The top right corner of the keyboard has popped out. How do I fix this?

Michael Faherty - Reply

Try removing the rubber foot under the popped corner, remove the screw, push down on the corner and replace the screw while holding the corner down.

Craig Carlson -

Just a note: the little rubber feet are all lettered (A-D) and you do need to match them to their proper corners when re-assembling.

I have several keys that have stopped working. Replace the keyboard or is there a fix?

Richard Williams - Reply

This happen when the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard gets squashed too hard.

See [1] below for a decription and fix.
