Keyboard button missing

I got acer aspire 7520-5185 and one day one of my button came off and notice the siccor thing was broken. I had it off for a couple of day and notice that lil rubber bumper thing was missing since my son thought it was nothing to it and ripped it off lol ( yes I laugh now) before heck no. Anyhow, how do I go about replacing that one button even if the rubber bumper is missing..

Jewellers screwdrivers, patience and a good pair of eyes.

I've had to do a few, to get replacements you either have to ask the manufacturer or find a scrap one.

They're a bloomin' pain in the proverbial to do though. As normally one clips in tensioning the other half. The rubber usually (but not always) helps stop it travelling too far to spring out again.

You can buy replacement keyboards, from ebay and other online specialists, they can be a bit pricey though.

I've bought a dead/faulty/smashed up laptop before, which had it's keyboard in tact.
