A completely new Medion laptop keyboard costs between £25 and £40, and can usually be fitted by a careful sighted person who is comfortable working on PCs.

Not the ideal answer perhaps, but may be worth considering.

Your alternative is possibly E-Bay where 2nd hand ones can be as low as £10.

Subject: [BCAB] Broken Key on Laptop


I have a Medeon laptop. The backspace key has recently broken. It is the key itself which is broken, not the keyboard.

I have contacted the supplier. The supplier says that they cannot provide individual keys. The computer is out of warranty.

I wondered if anyone knows where I could get a backspace key, as I am reluctant to have the keyboard replaced or to resort to an external keyboard.
