Does anyone know the best way of fixing a keybourd key
My sister took a hole lot out and managed to put them back in but one poped back out and has snapped a little so it will not stay in.

If it's a separate keyboard (e.g. for a desktop) as opposed to a latop keyboard, if it can't be fixed easily (and designs vary, so it's difficult to give specific advice), just buy a new keyboard - a basic one is very inexpensive.

Sorry about the mistake in the title.
It is a acer aspire one netbook.
it is the down arrow and annoyingly that is as to turn the volume down.

If only the key has snapped (rather than the fitting on the keyboard), you can get a replacement key starting from £1.20 delivered at eBay click here (make sure it's the correct one for your particular netbook before buying).

Entire keyboards start at £12 delivered click here. G

You know underneath where there is a sqwishy sort of thing that sticks out which enables you to tap down so its usable?
well if you know what i mean, what is the best way of sticking it back in as i know that the thing need is something like glue but that would be dangerous with something electrical but do sort of know what part i am trying to describe?

You could try a little Super Glue - this is widely available in supermarkets, stationers, pound shops, Wilkinson, hardware stores, etc.

They come in small tubes - here are a few examples click here, click here & click here. G
