Acer Aspire One Keyboard Domino Effect...

So I recently replaced the keyboard on my Acer Aspire One. Ordered a keyboard off Amazon, and it looks pretty much the same as my old one, but without all the bilingual stuff (I'm in Canada). I installed it no problem, but when I start my computer up now I get a bios beep alarm, numerous short beeps, and then Windows starts. Then, I noticed I can't tap things to open them with the mouse, and when I go to start Firefox, I get a million tabs opening and it doesn't stop. Only when I enter task manager does it stop. I've tried opening IE to see what happens then, and the help window opens over and over and over again. I really can't figure out what's going on, so if anyone has any insight - I'd be very grateful!

I have an Acer One and the keyboard doesn't work at all. None of the keys

Go and get a DESK TOP keyboard. Plug it in to the USB Port and, I bet it will work!
If so, you will need to replace the laptop keyboard. It is available from sites like EBay and Amazon. Not expensive and not difficult to replace. Otherwise about $100.00 at a shop.

I have an acer Aspire 7720 with an broken motherboard. I had ordered a new one, I had installed it and everthing is going ok except the keyboard. I have ordered a new keyboard but the same think.It's not...

Check the laptop is accepting keypresses by using an external keyboard. I'm assuming you were confident that this replacement board was working without issue when you bought it? What may have been working in all other respects, could have had a faulty controller on the motherboard.
I'd also check that the keyboard ribbon was correctly locked into place as you re-assembled it and there are no kinks in the ribbon

Tomato sauce spilt on acer netbook keyboard.some keys really sticking down.sauce gone under some keys.

It would be better if you call the Acer technical support no and get it repaired before your mainboard gets fried.

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.

Keypad needs replaced and I need to find the correct one

If you need to purchase one Amazon has it:

But I'm going to assume you need instructions on how to replace the keyboard.
A very good guide for the 5100 model can be found here:

I've noticed that most Acer Aspire keyboards are removed in a similar fashion.

Good Luck!
