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

The A key pop out of on my Toshiba satellite A205 laptop, how do I snap it back in?


More than likely you will need to replace the keyboard. Take a look at the two little plastic Us that are under the key to see if the tips that hold the key down are all still there. There should be one on each end. Also look at the keyboard plate to see if any of the 4 metal hooks have been flattened or broken off. If you are missing any of these you will need to replace the keyboard.

Here is a link that should help you on your way to purchase another keyboard:

The keyboard is alway held down by two screws hidden under a plate. Use the following page for replacement instructions:

I have an acer aspire one and the keypad is not working its typing the wrong letters any suggestions why. It is not a year old yet


This is either a keyboard or setting problem. If the operating system is told the keyboard is a different type or the wrong location (language) you get weird results. Can even be a stuck key or even a function setting. Laptops use the FN-F7 key (usually) to turn on the numeric pad that is in the keyboard. That will also give you strange results.

If the keyboard doesn't have a stuck key and actually is the problem then it can only be replaced.

If its just a setting then you need to look under control panel for the keybaord setup and make sure it is set to the correct location language and type. A standard laptop keyboard is a 84 key and I believe the ones with number pads are 101 key.

On my laptop alphabet keys uiojkl and m have numbers on them i dont know what i pressed but whenever i use the keyboard now it will only type the numerals that are on those keys instead of the letters...


please check for a the ( Fn) key which is found next to the left side ctrl marked by a blue colour. cleck to see if this is jammed as only by holding the fn key down will the alphabets change to numerical. If the fault is persisting again open your keyboards settings and check for default settings. Also try to reinstall the drivers or else restore you computer to an earlier good restore point by clicking on control panel, select back up /restore. I hope this clears your fault. Good day.

The"u" key is displaying "4" when it is pressed


Sounds like you have turned on the NUM LOCK on the laptop keyboard. If you look closely you will see the numbers on those keys (maybe in a different colour).

You need to turn off NUM LOCK again. On the laptop I'm looking at, this is done by pressing Fn and END together, but the key should be marked with NUM LOCK as well.

There is a blue 'fn' key on your keyboard, press it. That should change your numbers to letters.

I have some melted keys on my acer aspire 3500 notebook i would like to replace those keysn how would i do this? i tried to call acer customer service but i could not get through


Replacing keys on laptops is really a pain, and would require scraping a keyboard to get the keys....Anyways you can buy a keyboard for your laptop relatively cheap from Ebay. Between 10-24 dollars. I took the liberty to do the ebay search and have provided you a linke to many keyboards just for your laptop.

External keyboard messing up Gateway settings


You have to unlock the FN key on your keyboard. It seems to be locked in place. I had the same problem and resolved it by looking for a "num lock" , "function lock" or actual blue image of a lock on the keys. Mine is located under the "Scroll" button. Press this along with the FN and your keyboard should go back to normal

How do I fix the m key on my keyboard?


Try with gluing it on. Just make sure not to use to much of it. A little should do. Use glue made especially for plastic objects.
