I accidentally broke two keys on my laptop (right ship and upper arrow). I tried plucking it out and reinserting as it seemed loose but in the process broke the little plastic hook that holds the key to the keyboard.
Called up Fujitsu Service center and was told that I had to replace the entire keyboard!! (HKD 500 labour charge + 500 for the KB!!)
I don’t want to spend 1000 bucks for 2 keys! Does anyone know if I can get a spare key from somewhere?

Guess is luck really to find these… perhaps try the 2nd floor in Wanchai computer centre – use the escalator runs above the one you use to enter from the street (i.e. one at front and not the one at back of shopping centre)… then check the store you see directly in front of you – they have a “Computer repair” sign hanging up.
They sell replacement laptop keyboards (etc. etc.) which they bring in from China (normally cheaper than original) and do repairs (guy there was nice when I asked him about mine).
Basically thinking that since they fix so many keyboards, that they might have some spare keys lying around.
Worth a try and I guess if you give them $20 or so, they will be friendly and helpful.
Good luck and cheers – AsiaplayDecember 6, 2008 at 4:34 am #2319
Thanks Asiaplay. Appreciate all the info.

I know there is also a laptop repair shop at MKCC at the ground floor to the left of the elevator. Up on the 2/F there is also a laptop repair shop.December 7, 2008 at 8:01 am #2321
Also, on another topic would you know if adding 2GB more of RAM (I use windows XP and have 2GB at the moment) would help increase the speed of the laptop? I understand Win XP can only read upto 3GB so it might not make any difference, right?December 8, 2008 at 5:12 am #2322
You already have 2GB? Is that in one stick only?
I would say adding 2GB isn’t going to give you too noticeable of a speed increase. It depends what you do with the laptop though and whether or not you have a lot of programs open at the same time. As you correctly noted, 32-bit Windows XP won’t see all of the 4GB RAM. I think the exact number is somewhere around 3.25GB…
Although with the RIDICULOUSLY low prices of hardware components these days… why not do it?? ;D
Looking at Jumbo’s site there’s this for example: [NB] A-DATA DDR2 800MHz 2G SODIMM HK$ 175.00December 8, 2008 at 5:18 am #2323
heck, you are right. I spend more than that in LKF on a Friday night!!
Sorry, what’s Jumbo’s site?December 8, 2008 at 5:21 am #2324
Make sure you have a free RAM slot first?December 8, 2008 at 5:23 am #2325
thanks! yup, sorry I forgot to reply to that. I have a Fujitsu S6410 (4GB max 2GB * 2 slots). 1 slot is occupied with a 2GB and the other is free.December 8, 2008 at 5:27 am #2326
Sure, anytime. Enjoy your new extra 1.25GB of RAM! 🙂December 8, 2008 at 5:30 am #2327
thanks! also, another quick question:
[NB] A-DATA DDR2 667MHz 2G SODIMM HK$ 142.00
[NB] A-DATA DDR2 800MHz 2G SODIMM HK$ 175.00
Does it matter which one I buy? I am not sure what the speed of my RAM is or how to check. I was Googling S6410 and the specs for the indicated this;
* RAM type
So, I should be buying the 667 one, right?December 8, 2008 at 5:46 am #2328
Yep, your RAM is 667MHz. The 800MHz will also work at the lower speed automatically – but not the other way around..
It’s up to you though. Both will work just fine!
Do you have the version with the SIM-card slot for 3.5G?December 8, 2008 at 5:52 am #2329
Thanks K. nope, I have the one with the SD Card/Finger print scanner (which is quite useless IMHO).
Would have been nice if the Jumbo site had an English version. Gotta call them tomorrow!
