I didn't know where to post this- hope it is the right place...
I have two broken keys (T & N caps) on my Acer laptop (Aspire 5610) keyboard. I found this website which conveniently sells individual laptop keys. However my laptop is not listed and I don't know whether the other Acer laptops or any other laptop listed have the same keys as mine. I was wondering which one could fit my laptop. You can closely see how the keys on my Acer 5610 look like in this review video on at approximately 04min:27sec.
Could someone please let me know which model(s) listed on the site has the same keys as mine. I am pretty sure there must be one. And how would the keys be described? In the 'Key Type' drop down box should I select 'Black' or 'Solid Black'?
If you were in the States I could get you all the Dell, Toshiba, and IBM keys you need. Alas no Acer. Your model is specific to Europe, it's not even listed on Acer's US site. All I can suggest is eBay.uk or call ACER
The important thing thing to match is the plastic clip underneath the key that holds it to the keyboard base
Mark why won't my laptop work?

I heard that if you call ACER they'll will sell you a complete keyboard instead of individual keys, and considering I only need two keys, that would be quite inconvenient. I only need the plastic top, not even the tiny clips that hold it to the keyboard! I am wondering those tops can't be that different for most laptops and there must be at least one model listed on the site that matches mine!
Also did you manage to check the video on youtube to see how they look like?
