HP Pavilion Gaming - 15-ec1073dx

Hi All- I am just trying to figure out how to replace the "W" key on my son's gaming laptop. The key popped off and a small corner broke off of the back of it, so it no longer can clip onto the little plastic piece. I just want to buy a new key and possibly the little plastic piece to put back on. I didn't know where to buy them from. Thanks!

Hello @mmswenson05 

 

Sorry to hear that you are having problems ... I would like to help you.

(1) I would temporarily connect external USB keyboard to continue working with notebook.

 

(2) Where to buy keys ?

https://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com/

and

https://laptopkey.com/

 

(3) If you're brave, you can try to change the <w> key, but I would have HP officially fix it. That is my personal opinion.

 

YouTube is your friend:

( just one example )

(4) If it proves to be too difficult, the keyboard must be replaced!
