Re: how to change or open Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook's...

Keyboard is easy - just turn computer over, unscrew the screws that connect the keyboard to the laptop and then see if there are any screws on the keyboard itself that must be unscrewed. Pry the keyboard off with a small flathead screwdriver, unplug the ribbon and replace with new keyboard by re connecting the ribbon and then snapping it into place and of course replacing whatever screws you took out. Hard drive - you must first locate whereever it is on the bottom of the notebook, unscrew those screws, take it out and reconnect new one. REMEMBER to take out battery during this whole procedure and put a cloth over the LCD screen so you wont scratch it up.

Acer Aspire 5101 Laptop, powering but nothing else

If it won't go past the login screen, you should try restoring it from CD first, and then replacing the hard drive if that doesn't work. I don't have all the details, but from what you describe I don't agree with the motherboard diagnosis.
