If your floor is easy to get to from the bottom side you can drill thru the sub-floor and screw into the loose flooring. If the floor is really bad from like water this will help too.

Screwing from the bottom might work to quiet squeaky 3/4" hardwood floors but I don't believe it will work to pull buckled parquet back into place. The parquet is too thin for a screw to get a good bite. What caused the buckle? If the floor was jammed up to the baseboards, expansion might have caused it to buckle. If so a relief around the edges needs to be done. You will have to get glue under the floor and put pressure on it to hold it down while the glue dries.

To fix severe buckling in wood flooring, drill a 1/4 inch hole in the middle end of the joint, and use elmers wheathertite glue. the best way to get it under the surface is to atach a small flexable tube, so you can sread it throut the area. the let dry with presure on it for four hours!
