    So recently the 9 key on my ibook keyboard just came off and I think it's broken. I can't really tell if anything broke or if it just snapped off. In either case I can't get it back on. Are their any solutions to this problem? or am I just left without a 9 key? Thanks.

    Just lay it where it's supposed to be, and press down. It will swapp right back where it belongs.

    If you broke th key off and it won't reattach search around eBay, I found a key for 5 bucks shipped, much better bu6ing a new full keyboards, I would suggest eBay but if you have appleccare they will send you a new keyboard but you can only get one per the life of your iBook so be careful.

    I've tried laying it down where it's supposed to go and pushed down and it won't snap back in. That's why I think it may be broken. I'll try on ebay.
