You will have to take off the largest panel off the bottom of your laptop. Once that is off you will be able to see the wiring. Make sure you unplug computer and take the battery out before you open. There will still be electricity flowing as long as the battery is attached even if it is off. It is not that hard to replace. Depending on the model the bottom part is hard to take off on some models as it is attached by pins including the screws. Also, you will see a wire for your touchpad. Finally, check YouTube, there are several videos about repairing computers if you have another computer in the house. Good luck, let me know if you have any problems.

Acer 5000 no keyboard and mouse uploading xp home


You might have a faulty keyboard or a key may be continuously pressed without you seeing it physically. When you get to that screen again, try running your hand across all the keys a few times and see what happens. If not, just go on ebay and find a cheap one and replace it.

Keys qazwsx12 do not work on the keyboard for my acer aspire 5920 laptop


i would suggest you get a new keyboard. Has anything been spilt on it. The keys you have said, sound like a cluster that has gone within the keyboard. The keyboard shouldnt be to much. You can take a keyboard out of a laptop either by unscrewing some screws on the back with a little keybaord next to them, or you would need to carfully pry a cover next to the keyboard to show the screws that are holding it down.

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

OR
You can use a full size USB keyboard and plug it into the laptop's USB port.

"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.

Replacement acer key


In most cases the entire keyboard needs to be replaced. Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer to purchase the keyboard as laptop parts are 99% proprietary.
