Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard

2 Answers

My son just pulled my down arrow key off and bit it in half. Does anyone know where I can just buy the replacement? I have the Acer 6930 with the mouse to the left. The keyboard keys are just like key covers.

My keyboard doesn't work


If it really is "new", then it probably is still under "warranty". Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Hi, I have an Acer 5920 laptop and the right arrow key has come off. I have the key, and the 2 bits of plastic that act as a retaining clip how do the clips fit? I can see that one clips into the key at...


Do not use glue! These keyboard caps just press fit onto the keyboard. Line it up and push straight down. The arrow facing in the right direction should give you the right alignment. If the key does not stay on, you must replace the keyboard as it would be missing the attachment point that would keep it on the base. Without seeing it in person, it is hard to say. I am not sure I understand what you mean by the key is locked to the keyboard?

there should be a button right under the screen, right above the keyboard that looks somewhat like a thumbnail, when you press it, it should turn orange telling you it is on.

Right arrow key permanently 'pressed' down


Only solution here is to unplug the keyboard from the mother board. Just take apart the case and look for the ribbon cable going from the keyboard to the motherboard, and take it out.
Please rate, thanks!

Arrow key in my laptop keyboard was pull out help!


If you are unable to align the key above the place of removal and get it to work, very low chances that you will be able to fix it back in place (The pivot lever below the key is usually broken) - Better off paying for a replacement keyboard.

Gateway Keyboard left shift key adds a pipe character


The driver will not fix the problem, as this is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://lotus.kick-***.net/keyboard

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.
