Vaio is a popular series of laptops from the makers of Sony Electronics. As with most laptops, the Vaio's keyboard is assembled in multiple pieces. Each individual key is attached to the keyboard via a fitted clip that connects to the back of the key. It is not uncommon for any one of the keyboard keys to become dislodged and need to be put back together. If this occurs, there is a simple process that allows users to quickly reattached the key to the laptop's keyboard.

Gather all of the pieces that held the laptop key in place. You should have two small white clips which each appear to form a semicircle. You should also have the key tile for the letter which you are trying to replace. If any of these three pieces are misplaced or damaged, replacement pieces can be purchased from the manufacturer.
Locate the rubber stopper in the centre of the vacant key hole on the keyboard. To each side of this rubber stopper there will be a thin vertical groove where you will need to slide the white clips into. Start with the right clip, adjust the piece so that the small cutout notch on the clip faces the bottom right corner of the groove. Slide the white clip into the groove until you hear a click which signifies the piece is locked in place. Repeat this step with the opposite piece, making sure this time that the cutout notch is facing the bottom left corner of the groove before inserting it.
Attach the key tile back into place on the keyboard. To do this, simply adjust the key tile so that it is evenly resting on the rubber stopper in the centre of the vacant key hole. Push down on the face of the key tile until you hear a distinct clicking noise which will tell you the key is once again locked in place on the laptop's keyboard.
