Hi,

My "c" key has been broken on my laptop for six months. It is not malfunctioning, it is completely ripped off the keyboard so there is no hope for me to fix it. So there are three choices for me the way I see it.

1. replace it (i don't know how and it is probably not worth the cost/hassle).
2. live with it (keep using copy paste for typing "c" - however this is getting annoying because I need to use my copy paste function for other things and it is frustrating to continually recopy the "c" key.)
3. reassign a different key to the "c" key (i was thinking of assigning something like the "Fn" or the "F4" key or something that I never use. It could take a while to get used to but I'm willing to try it if there is a way I can possibly reconfigure my system to do that.

I have an acer aspire 5678, running on a windows XP.

Let me know, thanks.
