What is a suggested way of toutching up the lettering on a computer keyboard key top?


you can look on ebay for the keys, look for your specific laptop model because keyboards tend to vary from one to the other. you can use white out or something along those lines and then put a clear layer of nail polish over it, but anything you do like that would look kind of tacky imho, so i'd just purchase new keys.

Insert the top plastic sticks into the top metal holes and the bottom bar into the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. Get a thin object or a blade and stretch the plastic pieces downwards to insert completely.

REPLACING KEYBOARD OF A ACER 3002 LCI LAPTOP


Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. One of the major problems with Acer keyboards is that the plastic pieces holding the keys in place become loose or broken. You can find a cheap keyboard from Papatek.com or an electronics store. Simply take apart the new keyboard, pull the keys off your keyboard, lay the plastic piece on top and replace your keys.

You don't have to buy a whole new keyboard to replace few keys. Try taking off the key cap and its retainer clips (plastic pieces underneath the key cap). Repair it yourself with the help of this video:

Spilled a little rum on the corner right side of the laptop and now had to get an external keyboard because the laptop keyboard types multple letters and numbers when keys are pressed.


If that is the case you can purchase a new keyboard off ebay for $20, remove the screws holding it (will either be underneath laptop or right above keyboard) and replace.

How to replace a key cover on a fujitsu siemens amilio pro v3515 laptop


Hi Robin:

I hate to say it but you will always have problems with that key coming off...I would recommend that you search eBay for a broken laptop...same make and model as yours perhaps one with a broken lcd...usually you can pick them up for around $10.00. And then replace the whole keyboard.

If this is something you want to tackle yourself please feel free to contact me for step by step instructions.

Good Luck,

Key popped off


Can you please look underneath the key to determine if the plastic has been damaged/broken. If it is then you will need a new key, or possibly switch with another less used key, if you don't want to purchase a replacement.
