    I managed to pop two keys off my V6VA while vacuuming the keybaord.

    They don't seem to go back on very easily, and don't have the same feel to them.

    Is there some sort of guide?

    Usually if you just place the key where it belongs and press on it (rather hard) it will noticably snap back into place. It should feel normal after you do that. If it doesn't, you broke part of the plastic clips that holds it into place.

    Well, the one key goes on if I push hard, but the one side sticks up more than it should. Maybe there's a certain way you have to push it on? The plastic clips on the bottom look alright. The other key actually had the rubber pad come off as well. Could I glue it back on?

    It looks like the one key is fine, but the other had a tiny piece of the plastic toggle switch broken off.

    If I called Asus would they send me one? Covered under warranty? Doesn't matter much if it isn't, can't be much for a tiny piece of plastic.

    Nice service!
