Can't refit space bar & alt Gr keys to Acer Extensa 4620

After a small spillage onto the keyboard - the spacebar & alt gr keys were removed to dry & clean underneath - now I can't refit them. The keyboard & computer still works perfectly - but those two keys are 'unhinged' on the lower edge. The local repair shops are not interested - just want to sell & fit a new keyboard - quoted Au$140!!

Removing the keys can sometimes damage the very small retaining clips then it won't clip back in place.
You can get replacement keyboards on the Internet, I've bought keyboards for approx. US$20 from the USA. The keyboard is easy to remove and replace, no need to get a techo to do it.

Acer spacebar types bv why? how do i stop it?


Hello,

If it not under warranty I would suggest to open the laptop and reseat the Keyboard cable. Also it might just be that the keyboard is simply faulty - as the space bar is close to bv so maybe it was damaged some time ago. The last assumption I would have that liquid has been spilled onto the keyboard - It stuck bv and space together and everytime you type space, the key that are hooked with the dried liquid come down with it.

The slash key under the ? shows up as a e with an accent why?


To the right of the "space-bar" on the keyboard, hold down the ALT GR ("alternate graphic") key, press the "slash" key, and release the ALT GR key.

Or, in "Regional Settings" within "Control Panel", change your "input method" to "US-English" keyboard, rather than some French or French-Canadian input method.

If those 5 keys produce "other" graphics, then look on your keyboard for the 'ALT GR' key, just to the right of the space-bar.

Hold-down the ALT-GR key.

What graphic is displayed?

When I try to type @ symbol it comes up as "


To the RIGHT of the space-bar on your keyboard, is there a key labelled as "ALT GR" (ALTernate GRaphic) ?

If so, hold that key down, and press the '2' key.

Or, click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Regional and Language Options

You may have an additional 'input method" defined,
i.e., for French-Canadian or Swedish or German keyboards,
where some keys are at different positions on the keyboard.
Switch to the 'USA' keyboard.
