my delete key broke off of my laptop and I can't get it to stay on.  Is there anyway i can fix this or take it somewhere to get fixed.

Re: Key popped off

Most likely the keyboard will need replacement.  What model is it?

Re: Key popped off

Since it's under warranty, call Dell and have them ship you a replacement keyboard.

Re: Key popped off

Unless you are in souther california, I dont think anyone is going to be able to help you with that, as keys are pretty rare for BMs.  Try this source, www.replacementlaptopkeys.com, 

they always have the dell laptop key replacement i need in stock, and even if dell will replace it under warranty, its sure beats sending out your laptop for a week.

Re: Key popped off

You won't have to send the notebook for repair - they'll send you a keyboard, which installs in ten minutes.  Chances are they won't even ask for the original back (which means you have a spare set of keys by default).  Beats paying for a key or keys when you're under warranty!
