Maybe, if you sweet talk it, it will snap back on. Sweet talking seems to work for lots of other things. Posted: 02/05/2012 04:29:12
Did you say that out loud? Ooops again.
Thank you, Huey. Very kind. Perhaps I should come and visit you & Daisy Mae? Would they let me in, do you think? Posted: 02/05/2012 04:29:31Last Edit: 02/05/2012 04:30:15 by AntoniaMarlowe

Mae Bell will be waiting at the barb-wire gate and she'll personally let you in and sneak you past the guards. They might not let you leave once you’re in Oak Tree. I haven't been able to figure out how to get out, yet. You really want to get your F5 key fixed that badly? You truly are desperate. I'd just sell a bunch of books, if I were you, and buy a new laptop, but check the F5 to make sure you don't get another damaged one. But if you get in safely, then Mae Bell will fix it for you. She fixed mine, broke the rest of the laptop, but did fix my delete key. Posted: 02/05/2012 04:39:02
Lovely, I'll be sure to bring it with me when I visit because it's a real cow of a job. And I'm heading to the second-hand bookshop today with a load of old books to sell so I might get enough money to get the nice man in the shop to repair it for me. I think he fancies me, actually.

Antonia, same thing happened to my new lap top when the cat jumped down from on high onto the keys. Mine snapped back though.
If it were my computer, I would contact the manufacturer and ask them what to do. Probably Toshiba has a web site and technical assistance. This might help: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp
Do you still have the manual that came with the computer? Might be some information in that as well. Good luck. Posted: 02/05/2012 04:51:06
The caps lock key on my MacBook is off and won't snap back on b/c the little mechanism from it is still attached to the computer. I thought about gluing it, but hey, the thing still works and I don't want to risk gumming it up. I keep the key in my desk as a souvenir. Posted: 02/05/2012 04:55:53
Then it's settled. Take it to the shop, smile a lot, bat your eyes (a whole lot) and giggle a lot. If you didn't sound like the insane lady from the institution, then he'll fix it for free and you'll also get dinner. Posted: 02/05/2012 04:58:29

I know something about this subject, my brother owns a replacement laptop key company
The most likely issue is the tiny little legs on the plastic white part, laptop key hinge, they are fragile, and if it came off the keyboard, its likely its the little legs that are broken, and I am not sure how you are putting it back on but, assuming nothing is broken, you need to place the hinge on the keyboard first, and then if that works out you then put the key cap directly over it and press down and that should be it. If yours is indeed broken, then go to www.replacementlaptopkeys.com they will have your toshiba laptop keys in stock, hope this helps. Posted: 03/05/2012 18:46:25
