Hi Clay. You can replace your keys. They will have a hinge and it looks like yours has a suction cup, most have a clip. I have included a video link for you at laptop you choose your computer and they have the video. I suggest a magnifying glass or I have a use one anyway. Good luck.

SOURCE: Bios Password Reset

The only idea I have is to find and disconnect the CMOS back-up battery after removing main battery and unplugging the AC adapter. That SHOULD clear the bios completely, wiping out the password, the date, and everything else.
I know this works on desktops, and most laptops, but no promises, and the cmos battery may not be easy to access.
You should probably leave the battery unhooked for at least 1-2 minutes to be sure it clears.

Hope this is some assistance!

If the internal restore partition is still on the drive then you can either hold down the Alt button and keep pressing the F10 button as soon as you turn on the laptop or if that doesn't work then you'll need the original restore cd's to the laptop.

If you can't do neither then the next best thing is to get either a windows xp or windows vista cd and install it, then install the drivers that windows can't pick up and also install any applications that you want on the laptop.

It sounds like the battery charging ac cable might be faulty.. You might want to go to a local shop and see if they could try another cable before you go out and spend money on a new one. They usually will try a cable to see if that's the problem.. Please let me know if this washelpful and if it solved the problem and good luck..

Acer won't charge or turn on

Yes. You need to replace one or two Power MOSFET's,

1) Using the HP Pavilion dv6000, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's; as an example,

Example of Fairchild Semiconductor International (Inc) -
FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and Alpha & Omega Ltd -
AO4407 - Power MOSFET, plus price;

Obsolete. Cross reference replacement FDS6679AZ - $1.01 USD

Obsolete. Cross reference replacement DMP3020LSS-13. 78 Cents USD.

Then suggest YOU replace the motherboard. Less cost, and a learning experience,

Service Manual, (Free),

Go to the 'paragraph' that starts with Aspire 1200. (1200 in blue)
Drop down to the 10th line (5738ZG), scroll across, click on the blue - 5920G

[Ignore if you are aware;
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name (5920G) it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.
The PDF file will not show until fully downloaded ]

The following pictorial disassembly guides are not your laptop, but feel they may help if you see a 'hands-on' approach,




This one is for an Aspire 5920 series of Notebook PC.
Not very good video quality, fair.
Suggest start at 3:03

USE an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
(Electro Static Discharge)

I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.

You can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
Or perhaps a large metal knickknack (Unpainted)

Average cost of an ESD wrist strap is around $3 to $6. Here is but one example,

Use a multi-compartment container, for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.
SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws!
Advise do NOT mix them up.

Take photos, or use a video camera if available. Use good lighting.
Make notes if you need to.
Have a personal record of what YOU did to refer back to, instead of just a Service Manual, and/or instructionals.

Just an idea.

Cd drive in my acer aspire x1700 doesn't open

You are going to need a paper clip. Look fo a small hole next to the switch. straighten the paper clip and put it in the hole in the center. carefully push to activate the mechansium to open the door. Then you can troubleshoot the door. Turn off the computer then pull the power cord from it. Open the computer case find the power cable to the cdrom/dvdcdrw and push it in to make sure you have good connection. If it still doesn't work after this then you can get a new drive for less than $30.00 (usd)

Hope this helps,

Open CD drive

Your question is vague, but if your CD/DVD drive won't open you can try two things: Open your START menu and click on Computer. Find the CD/DVD drive under "Drives with removable storage". Right-click on it and select 'Eject'. If that fails, look on the side of the laptop where the CD opens. There is a very small hole into which you can stick the end of a paper clip you have bent for this purpose. Push the paper clip into the hole until you feel the latch release.

HI. My Acer Aspire 3500 DVD drawer was I guess off track. The drawer wouldn't open so I pried it open. Now it won't stay shut and when it is shut I can't open it unless I use a paper clip.

There is very little you can, these items in general cannot be repaired. Go to Type make and model of laptop, refine search to cd/dvd driver.

If the button on the side of your laptop will not open the drive then you can try two things.

1. click start at the bottom left of your desktop (7 and vista will be a windows logo) then click computer. A list of hard drives and cd/dvd drives will show up. hover over the dvd drive with your mouse and right click. Then click eject, the tray should open.

2.Get a paper clip. located on your dvd drve cover is a small hole just big enough to fit a paper clip in. Push the paper clip in and pull it out it should pop open the drive.

im assuming the "eject" button is not respomding, no worries REAL easy fix, if you have a paper clip, if not find something the same diameter, if so, unfold paper clip and there should be a small hole on the door next to the "eject" button, insert end of paper clip, retrieve dvd.. :)
