    So, my "six" key stopped working and it's in ALL of my passwords. I need to fix it before my computer decides to log out. Any suggestions?

    I have the key itself, but the black part that presses down on it broke off and I dropped it on the ground... forever gone

    Found the black piece, but it is still broken off, I can live without the key on there, but is there a way to put the black piece back on?

    Every time I have a problem with my laptop, my computer guy has a reliable fix.
    He'll sell me a new one.
    Works every time!

    In the meantime you can use alt codes. Your laptop should have a number pad somewhere on the keyboard. A lot of laptops have a fn key that needs to be held to use the number pad. Holding alt while typing 55 on the number pad gives you the number 6. So on a laptop, you would press and hold alt-fn while typing 55

    I can type six by putting the black bit to cover the censor, but the black thing doesn't stick is what i'm trying to fix.

    3+3 in numerical form is 8 silly :p
