Question about Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook
How do I remove a keyboard on a Acer Aspire 5920
For the Acer Aspire 5520 I'm working on, (Acer Aspire 5520-5156, mode nol: ICW50)
Remove the three black screws under the battery, not the silver screws.
VERY carefuly pry off the power button cover. It will make 'snapping' sounds and if you where gentle nothing will be broken.
The keyboard has no screws holding it and can be slid toward the screen and very gently pryed out, taking care not to tear the ribbon cable, as mentioned before.
When the keyboard is out the cable can be released by gently pulling the cable lock on the header toward the cable, the thin (black in this case, it's usualy a different color than the white connector) plastic part of the connector I just use my fingernails, one index finger on each end slowly pulling till it releases.
Pull the cable out using the pull tab. You can just pull the flat cable out with the pull tab without releasing the calbe lock but you stil need to release the cable lock to properly put in the new cable, then push the cable lock back tight to the connector.

To remove the keyboard on a laptop do the following:
The piece of plastic that the power button sits on can be removed, you will see a notch in the plastic on the far right of the bar.
Put a flat head screwdriver in the notch and carefully pry upward. this will lift the plastic bar from the computer and give you access to 3 keyboard screws. you cannot miss them, when you remove the screws lift on the keyboard, then the keyboard will be removed from the system.
Just watch that you do not pull to hard and rip the keyboard connector that sits on the system board.
