    I've got the same problem - I've managed to source a new Keyboard but don't know how to remove the casing to replace the old one

  • Anonymous Feb 28, 2009

    Keyboard only works correctly when it has been run for about an hour. The problem was caused by water.

    As such I need to remove the keyboard to clean it and if necessary replace the keyboard.

    Where did you get the new keyboard from?

    I've tried to get to the keyboard via the front and by the base as well but it's not clear what needs to be done to remove the case base.

It a bit tricky this one....none of the screws actually holds the keyboard'll need to remove the plate over the power buttons...this is held in by pressure it snaps into/out of do this I eased up the plate by gently prying the hinged brackets up and prying the facia careful its only thin plastic......once you've done that the keyboard is ready to slide up towards the hinge brackets....its a bit tight so be careful but its only held onto the board by the data cable.....reverse procedure to fit new one...

Follow the previous advice (very accurate).

The keyboard has sticky pads on the bottom of it. This makes it a little bit difficult to remove.

The keyboard connection has a little slider on the motherboard slip (don't pull out completly) this out very gently this helps with removing the keyboard cable and inserting the new one.

The keyboard code for the MD9620 is MP-03266GB-442A.

I tried Medion and they wanted £105 plus parts, they would not sell me just the keyboard.

John @ says he can get me one within about a week so I've ordered one.

Given the part number a Toshiba Equium L20 keyboard may work (looks very similar - slightly different key markings - part number for this is MP-03266GB-920).

If you bust the plastic facia, there are a few people selling this on ebay (may help with removing having a look)

I would suggest putting a finger nail between the silver and black plastic at the back of the laptop hinge. Then use a wide'ish but thin flat screw-driver to lift both sides. You will need to lift the plastic along the top of the keyboard as well. Do this carefully. There are however quite a number of catches. The extreme left and right are easier to lift out if you have lossened all the other catches off then pull gently away from the keyboard at a shallow angle as the catches for these sides sit under the silver section.

NOTE: Make sure you have removed the battery and power cord before you start doing any of this as the motherboard is likly to have voltage if you don't. Also beware of static.

    Finally have the replacement keyboard. They had a few problems getting a medion one.

    The keyboard is not a medion one, but it is close enough (function keys have different symbols - you could carefully swap the keys out - but I would advise leaving well alone).

    The details on the keyboard are:
    KB 99N458D0U61390015VHSA
    Model: NSK-ACD0U
    Darfon Electronics Corp

    The connector is slightly off to the left by 0.5cm, but doing two very careful bends aligned it sufficiently.

    Keyboard works so all's fine.

How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop

Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572
. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

Removing bluetooth chip

Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Do you have a wireless connection set up?

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.

How to install bluetooth on my pc

This depends on what kind of bluetooth you plan on using. Certain things like a Blu-Ray DVD Drive needs to be installed and hooked up internally in your PC, while something like Headphones or a Keyboard simply just needs a USB-based transmitter or a Bluetooth card that plugs into your computer.

Hope that helps,
