    Hi all, i did something really stupid today. I wanted to clean underneath my thinkpad's keyboard, but i couldnt figure out how. unlike my friend's keyboard, i couldnt simply take out the keys and wipe underneath. So i decided to use a vacuum cleaner.

    I just didnt know what strength to put it at.

    Now, i've got my caps lock sucked up into my vacuum cleaner. After recovering it from the vacuum's bag (messy stuff) and cleaning it, i can see that it isnt cracked or broken anywhere, both at the hinge(on the laptop) or the key itself. But for the love of god i have no idea how to fix it back in. It isnt just "push it in and click". Anyone help please?
