    get a new keyboard from acer.com and then you can remove the small panel at top of keyboard, if you gently pry the cover off on one end(there should be a recessed tab on one end). be careful, cause that can snap easily.

    there should be some small phillips head screws holding down the keyboard. remove and keep them safe somewhere(like a plastic bag)

    then, gently lift up the keyboard. there will be a cable holding it to the motherboard, with a specific kind of clamp. carefully open that clamp

    lift..reverse the flow.

    by the way, careful about static. these areas are highly susceptible to static from your hands. usually a qualified tech would do this with a ******** one wrists.

    Hope that helps you.

No they don't need replacing they just need cleaning, you can remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard (above the F keys) if you remove this panel you can remove the keyboard too, it is connect to the laptop with a ribbon cable that you can remove. when the keyboard is free all you have to do is run it under warm water (not hot) and clean the keys gently with washing up liqiud that you use for the dishes, keep on running warm water on it until the keys are free (you may have to repeat this process if the sticking persists) Now for the important part, you have to leave the keyboard to dry for at least 24-48 hours in a warm dry room before you can put it back in, press on the keys periodically to make sure they are free

Can't logon to my acer laptop it says the following, the user profile service failed the logon user profile cannot be loaded


Shut down your computer. To do a hard shutdown hold the power button down until it turns off. You probably need it to go to last known good configuration. To to this 1. find the F8 key (keep finger on it(not pushed yet). 2. Turn Power button on and immediately start tapping F8 key. This will take you to a screen with many options; Last Known Good Configuration is one of them. It should start up. Hope this helps.

ACER ASPIRE laptop PgUbp key came off.


Unless I'm missing something, just put the key back where it belongs. Push down hard, and it'll snap back into its place. If this doesn't work, check the underside of the key. If you see broken plastic, you'll probably have to find a new key. Acer laptops seem to have a problem with keys coming out and breaking (just look at the number of times this question has been asked!)

hope this helps

Just need to know how to insert a new memory stick I bought for my dinosaur 3000. Fry's salesman said I could find a step-by-step instruction. THX!


Dinosaur, as in a old acer aspire 3000 or what?

Most likely two screws on the bottom of the laptop that hold the memory cover closed, inside you will find 1-2 memory modules, you may have to remove one of the old ones and then install the new one, or if one is free install the new one there.

I spilt my drink on my laptop keyboard...


you can pull the keys out of their sockets and wipe the rubber and plastic holders with a wet cloth. but be very carefull to cloth should not leak, just be wet to dissolve and absorbe the sugar and other stuff that stick the keys. then just insert the keys in the sockets

ACER 3680 KEYBOARD


there are many many different keyboard designs, it is hard to make a suggestion...usually if it looks like nothing is broken on the key or keyboard you push down firmly and it snaps back into place.
