Definitely not as you not given any idea of how the problem manifests itself or what you have done to try and remedy the problem. Try chucking it in a bucket of water. For best results - whilst still connected to power.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

No need to be so rude!

Anyways, three of my keyboard keys popped-out last week and I tried to get them back on again but it's just not fitting in!
I would appreciate the help if anyone can give me a tip or two to fix my keys without suggesting to buy a new keyboard.

Mine is T40.

Thanks!

Since this is a MAINFRAME forum, exactly how are keys coming off a keyboard related to a mainframe?

Definitely a PC issue, not mainframe. If I remember, MS-DOS used to say, when you started a PC with a keyboard fault, "Keyboard Error, Press F1 to continue". Try that :-)

Try using glue when you stick the keys back on. Failing that, get the hardware guys in your company to fix it or provide you with a new keyboard.
