There are times when a laptop is actually fumbled, or it slips from your grasp, or slides off your lap. It's OK to fumble a football or any other unbreakable item, but not a laptop. Another common mishap is when one of the keys is detached from wear and tear on an older laptop. Whatever the case, the laptop is still useful, but you find yourself in a situation where you need just a little glue to put it back together.

- Damp and dry towel
Remove the loose or dislodged key. Wipe the key off with a clean, damp towel. Use a dry towel to remove any moisture. If a piece of your laptop is chipped or broken, clean and dry as well. Make sure you gather and assemble all the broken pieces.
Place the broken or chipped pieces of your laptop together. If you have all the pieces, they will fit snugly together as if you were putting the finishing touches on a jigsaw puzzle. This will not apply if you are gluing a key or keys to the keyboard.
When you have assembled all the pieces and are sure they fit, twist the self-piercing nozzle to open the super glue. Gently squeeze about 1 millimetre of glue on the broken piece and hold it in place for several seconds. Repeat this step until all the pieces or keys have been restored to your laptop. Allow two to four hours for the glue to dry before using the laptop.
