Problem with a key on my laptop
« on: May 28, 2012, 06:33:11 PM »
The left arrow key on my laptop has decided it no longer has a duty to remain attached to the keyboard; does anyone know how to compel this wayward key's fidelity to my laptop?

Ask it?
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Unfortunately, it appears to be deaf and I know no sign language (aside from either "I'm hungry" or "Sorry," but I cannot recall which it is, so I am reluctant to use it).

What kind of laptop?

Try googling your type. There are more than a few helpful sites to reattach your keys.

I'm going to need this.

It's a Dell Inspiron of some variety.

Thanks to Google, I seem to have gotten it to stay in place, for now anyways.
