I have a Dell Inspiron 5100 and managed to knock one of the keys off the keyboard. Can anyone suggest a technique for getting it back on.
Thank you!

I managed to do the same to the Dell laptop which is supplied to me by by company. I took me some time to do it but all I can suggest is a lot of fiddling. It went on in the end.

has the key actually broken in half or is it in tact still? Try the dell support line but this may be expensive.

Try pushing it in or wiggling it about as that all you can do - the keyboard is very expensive to replace so just wiggle in about in and around.

superglue? Used with extreme caution.
