    Anyone else with this problem?? Last week the "e" popped off, can't pop it in no matter what, it seems that it broken underneath.

    Then this morning my daughter threw a small soft cover book at me and hit the keyboard, 2 more keys just broke off. I heard the plastic snap when it happened.

    Called Apple store in Laval, they want me to replace the whole keyboard.......for $80.00 bucks!

    Does anyone in the montreal area know of where i can get this fixed??

    Without seeing the damage in person I'd say you're probably going to have to replace the whole keyboard.

    You will have probably snapped off part off the scissor mechanism that the key "sticks" to - you will be able to get them off eBay easily enough - as individual keys or e-mail some of the sellers and see if they will sell you just the scissor part (cheaper).
    Check underneath the key part that nothing has broken but if you look at the scissor it will have 4 little prongs (one in each corner) and one will have broken off...
