    Thanks very much Joe - your assistance is greatly appreciated!

    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!

Green function key locked on acer laptop


Hey, I've just been having this problem. Try pressing CTRL + SHIFT + FN all at the same time. I found out that I had to press them once to turn on the green keys, and then press them twice more to turn it off. I hope that works for you.

Cant get rid of bilingual characters on acer aspireone netbook


Check your regional settings in the controll pannel. Your keyboard is probably set for "Canadian French"

By default it should just be set to US.

Chose Canadin French instead of Canadian English by accident


Hello,
Yes you are right: it is a one time option. You can however install other languages. You will switch from the Canadian French keyboard to the US or English Canadian keyboard by pressing Shift Alt. You will console yourself if I told you that I type mainly in French, but the physical keyboard is US and I cannot even use the Alt + Ascii code to put the accents where due, because the laptop does not have numeric pad.

Hope it helps.
