Im not sure if there is a workaround for that when the switch is broke but hold down the FN key and press the F4 key and see if that activates the wireless card. If not then you need to get that switch replaced. Hope it helps.

Fn key combo for acer aspire 3680 wlan when wireless switch broke


Ok, i dont know exaclty how to do this, but look for a wireless icon, or something that looks like a wireless representation on the F keys. ex: "F10, F11". Press FN and that key to turn on\off your adapter.

Blank screen on my acer aspire 3680 laptop


Sounds like you have gotten stuck in presentation mode. Hold down the function Key (Fn) its blue, and then hit the (F5) key once. If the screen doesn't come back, press both again.

Power Board Problem and Power Button Hinges Top Cover broken


It would be cheaper to have the power board repaired but the replacement is around $55 from ebay. I'd get a new moulding for it if its available or even if you got somthing plastic welded up.
