Hi,
I own a asus g75vw and 2 keys ("s" and "d") are scratched as you can see on my attachment.
The question is: is it possible to replace these 2 keys without replace the whole keyboard ?

Thanks in advance !

HI @Clintlgm, thanks for you reply :)
Yes, I had previously checked that key provided, thanks for sharing. Did you replace the key by yourself ? If so, do you know a resource where I could learn whow to do it ?

Thanks !

Yes they have a video on there website, its very easy you just have to be gentle and not break off the metal tabs on the keyboard it self. Watch the video a few times, if your not comfortable doing it I'm sure any repair shop would do it for you.

I guess you are talking about this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tO0SgXZBhLA
The only issue is that in this video the key was previously removed and that's something I would like to know as well :)

Once you get the parts in your hand it becomes quite logical, with the new parts you'll see how to take the old ones off. Like I said before if your not comfortable doing this take it to a repair shop they won't charge you to much do the install.

Yeah, if you are careful, replacing keys isn't that risky - if you are careful. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy, just be slow and careful, and you'll be fine.
