Replacing the keyboard

One of the key caps came off of my Acer 9504 notebook, and I purchased a new keyboard. Can anyone tell me how to remove the old one to replace it? I hope someone else has experienced this, I can't see to see how to remove the covers to get to the screws that I'm sure are hidden in there.

    You can't just replace the keycap, they are completed integrated, and the cost of the whole keyboard (it has the numeric keypad built in) was only about $25.00 with shipping. Good price, now will try to take off the flat plate...wish me luck!

Replace keyboard on acer 8100 series laptop


Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. One of the major problems with Dell 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.

My Acer Aspire 9504 boots to windows, then shuts down


it is quite a common problem with acer when they age. If youve replaced all the recommended parts and its still failing, then my only suggestion would be to try to boot it up, and press alt and F10 (THIS WILL WIPE ALL INFORMATION ON THE ACER) so if you have files programms ets that you need they would be lost. Alt F10 Instructs the acer system to Factory reset. If you do this, it will go back to factory standard, so it will go through the origional set up like it did when it was first purchased and you will need to spend some time doing all your windows updates once the install has completed.

Hope this helps.


Thanks

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.

Keyboard broken, how can a install new keboard?


Keyboards can be purchase from places like ebay etc.... don't have to spend loads of money on new. once you do purchase a keyboard all you need to do is unscrew around four screws to be able to replace your old keyboard with the good one. The screws that need to be removed normally have a 'K' next to them which stands for Keyboard.

If this has helped you then please rate me!

2 keys have come off acer aspire 4520


If the plastic hinges and the tiny rubber press contact are still on the keyboard, you can align the key over the plastic hinge and press firmly down until you hear the key click back in place.
OR
You can purchase a replacement keyboard from several companies on the Internet. I purchased one from Yall Store - Use this link

"lost backspace button on Acer Aspire One"


Unfortunately, there is no way to purchase just one key of the keyboard. Acer does offer full replacement keyboards and they are easy enough to install. Unless you can find just the backspace key on eBay or something, you might have to replace the entire keyboard.

Thanks for using the fixya Forums.

Loose key


Is only the cap loose, but you can still operate that key?

On most laptop keyboards, the letters are caps on the keyboard button. They are held in place by small plastic tabs on the keyboard structure. The cap snaps in place and is held by the tabs. If the tabs are broken, the cap stays loose.

Some keyboards use a small slider that moves as you depress the key, which means you can't glue it.

Laptop keyboards are replaceable and can be purchased cheaply on ebay or some repair sites.

Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work


Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.
