These guys carry different Toshiba laptop keys and it’s accessories for $5.  I didn’t see X870 but the key may fit from another model, since Toshiba laptop keys seem to be generic. http://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com/?gclid=CNDTgdjvmbYCFc5xQgod_m4AxA 

YouTube demo to fix the key is available.

you can buy those while clips on eBay, you just have to make sure that it looks exactly like the one you are replacing.  There are many different styles.

ok.  I have not seen single Qosmio X875 keys on ebay yet, so you are better off replacing the whole keyboard.  Ebay has L875/P875 keyboards which look the same, but it does not list them as lighted.  Sparepartswarehouse doesn't carry party for the x875 keyboard either.  So it sounds like you will either have to buy the part directly from Toshiba, or send it in for factory service.

my information is accurate for the X870 as well.  You will have to call Toshiba, and see if they are willing and able to sell the keyboard separate.

You can check with these people and see if they have what you need.  The keys should be the same for the entire X875 series.
