Mac Book Keyboard


Active Member
My Black MacBook (circa 2006/7) has decided to eject it's 'M' key and I was wondering if any of you have had a similar thing happen to you, and if so any tips on reattaching it?

It's not the end of the world as I leave it on my desk these days and use the wireless keyboard (when it's not run out of battery power) and iteleport from my iPad, but it would still be nice to have it reattached.

It could be a irreversibly broken plastic clip underneath the key itself. I've had this sort of trouble with PowerBook G4's and I simple replaced the keyboard with a cheap replacement from the bay...

It might be worth booking a genius appointment at your nearest Apple store. last time I was at the Genius Bar another customer next to me got a couple of keycaps replaced on an old powerbook free of charge!!!
