I have lenovo y50-70 model (20378) and my left 'Ctrl' button has fallen off and I am looking to fix the situation. I have found a replacement part at http://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com/lenovo-y50-70-laptop-keyboard-keys-replacement/ and I am wondering if this is the correct part to fix the problem and which type of keyboard I have. Keyboard type is either 'IC51' or 'IC06' and I am not completely sure which part to get. Am I approaching the solution correctly? PIC of affected area included.

From comparing your picture and the picture on the website, I'd go with the IC51 if it were my purchase.

In addition, these laptop key replacement sites usually will sell you the complete kit. In other words, a new key cap, the plastic hinge and the rubber cup. I usually skip installing the new rubber cup unless the one on the keyboard is damaged or worn.

Hi there, could you please let me know how did you solve your broken key issue ? I have purchased my Y70 gaming laptop just a bit over a year ago, and the sad thing is that my "W" key is totally broken, Im very disappointed with the quality of the keyboard, especially considering that this is a gaming laptop ! If theres anybody can share an info how to get a new key for my keyboard I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks guys!

It worked, but comes loose on occasion and needs to be reapplied, i'd get two replacements just in case. it not easy to put the key on btw.

I've read lots of negative reviews about that website, have you tried to contact Lenovo for the key replacement by any chance ? Wondering if they are willing to do anything about it. Thanks.

Is there a way to order the key through Lenovo instead of getting non-OEM part from the other guys ? If so, how do I contact Lenovo to place an order for that "W" key? Thank you.

Lenovo won't replace or send the individual key. If you make a warranty claim they will replace the entire keyboard.
There are more than one replacement laptop key sellers. Personally I have used LapTopKey several times in the past and have no complaints about their product.
