Computer: How to Replace a Key on a Dell Studio Laptop

My cute as a button daughter pulled the caps lock key off my Dell Studio Notebook the other day and it took me a while to figure out how to put it back on.  The keys on this keyboard have 3 pieces.  The black part your fingers touch, a metal U shaped paper clip looking piece, and a white scissor piece of plastic.  The trick to reinstall is to carefully pull the white scissor off of the key and attach it standalone to the notebook.  Then make sure the metal piece is attached to the black caps lock key, slide the metal piece into its holder on the keyboard and press the caps lock key firmly down.  The white scissor piece then clicks into place and its attached.
