    Already been to that web site and it wasn't any help at all. Decided to just take it into Best Buy and have Geek Squad try and get the keys back on. Thanks anyway!

Repair ACER Keyboard


Many a times, laptop's keys fell off the keyboard or it gets damaged. Don't fret on buying a whole new keyboard when you can repair the keys yourself.
This is an installation guide to repair keys of Acer’s laptop keyboard.

You should have a key cap and 2 or more retainer clips (plastic pieces), that goes underneath the key cap.

To install the key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing the metal plates on the keyboard.

Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Here you can see that it has one large metal hook at the bottom and two metal hooks at the top.

Take the larger plastic piece and observe that it has two holes at the top corners, two sticks at the bottom and two holes in the middle. The top holes are going to go into the top metal hooks on the keyboard. The smooth part of the plastic piece faces away from the keyboard.

Take the smaller plastic piece and observe that it has two holes at the top, two sticks at the middle and a bar with larger hole at the bottom. The sticks in the middle are going to go into the middle holes of the larger plastic piece. The bottom bar is going to click onto the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. The smooth part of the plastic piece faces away from the keyboard.

Place the smaller plastic piece onto the larger plastic piece and insert its sticks to the holes of larger piece. It’s one piece now.

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.

Take your letter key cap, put it in the middle of the plastic pieces and push down evenly from all four sides.

My grand daughter is displced the number two character on the numeral keypad on my dell vostro 17". i have reassembled the two white plastic pieces (hopefully correctly) but I cannot reconnect the...


The easiest way is to check if the retaining lugs on the keyboard have been bent or damaged, may need easing back into place gently.
Then clip the white spring into the lugs and slip back into the recesses.
Then align the key into place and gently press on the key and it should snap onto the top retaining plastic lugs

0 and - keys fell out!!!!


hey
This could be a little difficult to explain.. coz the white ring acts as a spring and putting it back on is not hard but difficult to explain.

See first of all on an acer laptop a key has 3 components
the key
the white thing (which holds the key in place)
and a black soft thingy (which actually gets pressed wen u press a button and acts like a spring)
first of all the white ring can be removed and refixed easily .
Youll see 4 small hook like structures on the palce where key needs to be placed ... first place the white ring over there, the white ring has 2 things which come into one another. (try referring to the key where in the white ring is still in place).
now if the black spring like thingy is removed from its place, place it in the center of the ring and put the key on, try moving the key a little, if the key and white ring are put correctly, this will produce a click like sound showing the key is locked by the white ring .. if the white ring is dismantled into 2 parts it could be a little tricky to put them back on.. in that case i guess ull have to check a fixed ring and try and replicate the same for this key

for further assistance feel free to mail me on:

A key from my keyboard just fell off,how do fix it back?


Most keyboards the keys tops just snap into place. However, if the plastic is broken you will probably have to replace the keyboard. Good thing is they are relatively inexpensive.

Key board button


Check on Ebay, there are several vendors that sell individual keys and retainers. You may also check the price for a new keyboard, sometimes you can get the whole thing at a decent price and you will have your old one for parts. Ebay is where I get all my keyboards and keyboard parts for my customers.
