missing a letter from my keyboard

Hi, 

 

I have a strange problem. From my keyboard the letter K is missing (the black, square plastic top). It's really annoying to type now. How can I find the letter K's top , in order to type normally? Love to hear from you! Thanks! Indi

Sorry, but HP does not sell individual keys, and as far as I know, no one else does, either.

 

You would most likely have to replace the entire keyboard.

 

If you are experienced at laptop repairs, you can often replace a keyboard for $25 for a new one and a half-hours work. I have done this on older HP laptops.

But, if you're NOT, there is a serious risk of breaking fragile connectors and cables doing this -- so I do not recommend it.

Instead, I would recommend you hunting down a local laptop repair place to have THEM replace the keyboard. Sometimes, on some models, you have to replace the entire top surface of the laptop, not just the keyboard. So you should get an estimate of what is involved before you have the work done.

Thank you for your suggestions... I am a bit  dissapointed as my laptop is just two years old.. Ok, I'll think of a creative solution.
