after unsucessfully trying to install an airport extreme card that will hopefully be resolved tomorrow - some keyboard pads have fallen off! the f2 and delete key actually.. how do you put them back on? i've tried aligning the design and everything and snapping them back on.. but nothing

Push 'em back on. They snap on.

If it's a laptop, and it sounds like it is.

you may have broken the 'scissors' that support the keys. If thats the case, there is no need to get a new keyboard, as there is a company that sells individual scissors and keycaps for mac 'books.

For some reason (specially on the older machines) the delete keys are vulnerable to de-capping. The F2 key though . . . haven't heard of that one.
