Keyboard How do I replace the keyboard on an Acer 1640z?

    I figured out my own problem. Remove the three screws on the back of the laptop which hold the hinges to the screen. Next open the screen and fold it backwards until it is flat. Then pry open the small silver strip right above the number keys. Remove the two screws holding the keyboard and install the new one.



    You do not have to remove any other screws. Just the ones above. Always remember to disconnect the power and battery before working on a laptop.

Ok,
Usually there are hidden screws under the screen.
usualy under some clip or something.

if you find them unscrew the keyboard.
DO NOT YANK IT OUT!
carefully remove the cord .

PLEASE SEND A PHOTO OF THE LAPTOP for further info

I don't have the diagram but i can give you direction.
1. remove the power cover first (where power button is), it might have 3 screw that hold, if there is 3 screw on the power cover, remove it first.
2. after your removed the power cover, you can see the screw that hold keyboard. remove that screw and you can remove the keyboard.

SOURCE: acer aspire one 1640Z XP BIOS RECOVERY WON'T READ USB WITH BIOS

if I understood correctly you have the recovery software loaded on a stick flash drive and you want to boot from usb to restore the pc .....There are a few things that you have to know about to do that ...
first you have to go to bios and enable boot from another device ....other than hdd /cd or flopy ... for some elder bios this isnt even a choice ..or ..if it is ,,it will be as a sub options into the hdd...choice ..
another thing that you have to keep in mind ..is that you have to disable the other options to force it boot from this one ...or ....to press f8 on boot and manually choose the usm or the stick name that will appear on boot devices...
the most important thing is that if you already formatted the hdd it does notr have a usb driver loaded and that why willl not see the device ...also the device you are using to boot ...has to be specially formatted to be bootable ....this is made ussualy with a hp format tool ...and it is explained in more than one places on the net ...just look for making a boot-able stick (usb device)
in short ...make sure the sticvk is boot-able ...second the pc ha s teh capability to boot from another device ...and this is a feature that you already enabled like first boot device ...
than things will be easy ...it will ask you to press any key to boot from the usb ...and continue like an installation from the cd ...
if you cannot do it ...I recommend using a cd ..or an image that you will ***** in a virtual cd ...for those that do not have cd drive ( use daemon tool )

Replace keyboard pads


You cannot replace the individual keys on a laptop. You'll need to get a new keyboard, but they aren't very expensive. I'd look in e-Bay for one.

3 broken keys


You will have to take it to a computer repair shop that is an Acer agent or support center.
Then they can order a replacement keyboard for you as replacing just the keys is hard since you need the exact same key type.
