    I have the same issue. Can anyone advise where can source a keyboard from? Also just been told by Acer Europe that it does not have an International Warranty despite retailer advising it was.
    Thank you Martin

    Thanks for your tuturial Joed911. Your tutorial is the second one I've come across. Apparently there's an Aspire One keyboard that pops out automatically and mine doesn't. I've tried "peeling off" with a small screwdriver but I'm afraid I'm not using the right tool. Thanks! :D

    Your answer gave me the courage to try and take the keyboard off my Acer 2920....but don't have screws under the pause and F2 keys so I'm guessing this isn't instructions for my model. Can anyone help me with taking my keyboard off?

    I have pushed in/up the 3 levers and now they have disappeared. How can I get them to "pop" back?

  • b308659 Jun 11, 2013

    The keyboards are often difficult to get out, you need to pop all three catches and then a thin tool (eg credit card) can be used to ease up the top edge. On some models there are also catches on each side.

To remove the Keyboard you'll need a flat head screw driver, there are 3 levers that holds the keyboard inplace. look closer they are above the following keys "Pause break" "F8" and "F2" (tips: remove the one in the middle "F8" first it makes life a lot easier) use the flat head screw driver and put the lever upward towards the screen and the key board should pop up

Start from the top and start peeling off the keyboard, there might be a little bit of tape sticking to the keyboard so becareful, watch out for the cable that is connecting the keyboard and the board, carefully remove the cable and the keyboard should come right off.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Oh my god that was soooo helpful. I did what you said. I took a flat head screw driver and you have to pry it out. You push the tab and pry it out at the same time. My new americanized Aspire One, is working perfectly!!! Whew!!!

As noted above once the three catches are released you need to (gently) pry up the keyboard (try a credit card). Some models also have a tab on each side as well. Once the keyboard is loose you need to remove the attaching cable which is usually taped on the back of the key board. Note the cable connector is a clamp so you need flick up the front (black part) on the connector to release the cable. When reinstalling you need to be careful to align the cable in the connector before clamping it shut or the keyboard won't work. The connector for the touch pad is similar but a bit more difficult to manipulate.

I have opened and worked on several laptops over the years. I can tell you that there are many things you have to remove sometimes (depending on the brand and design) in order to replace the keyboard. Unless your comfortable doing this I would suggest taking it to a computer repair shop. I'm sorry this is not really the answer you were looking for, but It can get complicated sometimes. You will enjoy your computer sooner and if a shop changes it for you, then they will have to warranty their work if something goes wrong. Could be to your benefit. Thanks!

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start

Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

I wonder if the motherboard has bluetooth integrated or I have to put an external bluetooth devise

One way to find out:
Click on the start button > right click on 'computer' > choose properties > (top left) device manager > you will see a list of drivers
Bluetooth should be near the top
IF you don't see Bluetooth, you will need to purchase an external Bluetooth receiver.

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.

Button keeps blinking

It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at

Take it back to the place of purchase and get a replacement as it is under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself as you may void your warranty.

How do i turn my bluetooth on?acer aspire 5044wlmi

For Acep Aspire 504x model systems that have Bluetooth built in, there is an on/off switch located in the front of the system.

For systems with bluetooth built in there will be two buttons next to each other just left of the mic and headphone ports.

The left of the 2 buttons is the bluetooth switch and the right of the 2 buttons is for 802.11 wireless.

If you only have 1 button then you do not have bluetooth built-in. You can also check to see if bluetooth is included by looking at the bottom, if Bluetooth is installed there will be a white FCC lebel with the name Bluetooth written on it.
