A few weeks ago my wife deciding to try cleaning your laptop keyboard without me around. A simple enough task, we have canned air in my office to get dust and dirt out of the keyboard. Well she had one key, the N key that had some dirt she couldn’t get to without taking it off. So she took the key off but ended up breaking in plastic hinges when she tried putting it back on. I came home to a “Babe I think I broke a key on my laptop.” So I was thinking , “Great do I need to buy a know keyboard now?”

A quick google search brought me to LaptopKey.com where they will sell you any key for any laptop (I’m not sure about any but they have a lot). Just did a search on their site for Acer Aspire 5536 and TADA yes we have that keyboard. You just specify which key you need and its $4.99 per key. It ended up being $7.67 total with shipping. Hooray!

So I decided to do a little video of my experience putting the new key in place. It was relatively easy and LaptopKey.com has a video tutorial for every type of keyboard they carry.
