SOURCE: new acer aspire laptop keyboard seems locked. how

Dear tinadmd1659,
You have to re new your driver for keyboard, or try this one below:

Start Menu>My computer>(right-click)for contect menu and choose properties>(computer properties NOW open) then choose hardware tabs>then press the device manager tabs>(device manager box now open) find hardware by connection then right click on keyboard>then choose (UNINSTALL)>confirm by answer YES... END of part 1.

Next step:
Find the SCAN for HARDWARE Changes BUTTON and Hit it...
Windows should find your keyboard and need to install it, leave windows to install by itself, as a precaution, insert the windows xP CD or ASpire Recovery CD into CD Drive>>> Windows should easily installed the best driver available on CD or the installed windows. Apply and reboot.

You should have your keyboard back to work after restart..

Good Luck!

Best Regards,

The oven door seems to have come unattached from the spring. How do I reattach if it actually comes undone? The door does not seem to spring up and seal tightly.

I have had this same thing happen a few times.
Usually it is a broken spring.
Sometimes it was a broken "place where the spring hooks to".
Someone will have to take this all apart to diagnose and fix it.
This is a really big job.
Depending on the age of the oven, you may be able to get parts and even a schematic if you type your model number in to "SearsPartsDirect" website.
God bless your efforts.

Acer Latch is broken

On most notebooks, there is a VERY small return spring (smaller than a spring from a ball point pen) on the latch that tends to break.
