    Replacement keyboard keys for G74

    Does anyone have a website that sells individual keys for the G74 series? My "Q" key is broken it keeps falling off... I've found a few sites on my own but the newest laptop that is supported is the G73 series, does anyone know if that will work?

    Sorry...I haven't seen anything like that. It might be easier to just buy a new keyboard....fortunately, they're not too expensive.

    Here is a link to that one:

    Kinda steep ($75) for just one broken key...is there any way to reattach the broken key via a dab of silicon, or some CA or epoxy?

    Yeah, $75 is alot for the one key. Like I said I found 3-4 websites that sell individual keys. Does any one know if the g73 series uses the same sized keys?

    Don't quibble. It's not about the frequency with which one uses the Q, but the quality of the Q that's been called into question.

    @Brody and @fostert: Ha ha!.. That "Q Riddle" is a new one!
    I have to go over Brody's post (#6) three times to uncover the meaning of your exchanges.


    @robertoisrad : Might you want to link the 3-4 websites you mentioned?

    As you may know, the G74 keyboard has the "chiclet" button.
    The G73 keyboard is different.
    My suggestion: Look for the same sized "chiclet" button, even if its from another ASUS model (not the G73).
    I'm looking at a picture of an ASUS K53E right now, and the keyboard buttons look similar with the G74.
