Question about PC Laptops
I HAVE JUST PURCHASED AN ASPIRE ONE FROM CANADA. IT CURRENTLY HAS A CANADIAN/FRENCH KEYBOARD FITTED. I CAN SOURCE THE KEYBOARD - I JUST DONT KNOW HOW TO REPLACE IT. CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE. THANKS!
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.

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!
