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?
I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

The greatest tragedy in the world is when a cigarette ends.

Ask it?

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.
