    somehow the hinge for one of my keys snapped and now the key just flops around and doesn't stick straight up.

    anyone work at bestbuy or anywhere know if I can just get one key hinge? don't feel the need to hire geeksquad or get a whole new keyboard [​IMG]

    thanks dudes

    that site supposedly sells replacement keys and hinges, but i couldn't quickly find where. i would just email them since they claim to have tens of thousands of replacements.

    For a quick fix, depending on which key it is, use the hinge from a key you never or barely use, until you get a replacement.
